eBuying Comics: Week 17

by Ian Wells

I used to walk around comic conventions and question why would anyone consider buying the Marvel Essentials. It always struck me as a wasted investment buying collections of stories in black and white and on inferior paper. Fast forward a few years and I now love the idea of Marvel Essentials. There is nothing else […]

Wolverine Wednesday #24

by Ian Wells

Bit of a short one this month, as Wolverine related books aren’t at a premium. I’m still refusing to pay any attention to Wolverine Infinity Watch as a matter of principle. For the future I am planning on dissecting how Wolverine’s return has been handled in the pages of Uncanny X-Men. Currently I am absorbing […]

The comic shop where I get my mail subscriptions are changing the way they handle this procedure, so here are February’s Wolverine related comics finally reviewed even if it doesn’t feel very relevant now! The Return of Wolverine #5 Writer: Charles Soule | […]

In 1866 David Livingston set out to find the source of The Nile. In 1924 George Mallory set out to conquer Everest. In 1936 Professor Jones fought of Nazis in a mission to find the Arc of The Covenant. Now in 2019 maybe, just maybe I’ll get my hands on my own Holy Grail. I […]

Dead Man Logan #1 Writer: Ed Brison | Artist: Mike Henderson | Colourist: Nolan Woodard | Letters: Cory Petit I know this is Wolverine Wednesday but Glob may be my new favourite character.

Wolverine Wednesday #19

It’s that time of the month again to go through all comics laced with more than a hint of adamantium. This month I will bring you up to speed on the previous two issues of Weapon X, X-23 #6 and then review the latest and LAST issue of Old Man Logan Weapon X #24-#25 Writers: […]

The Return Of Wolverine #2 Writer: Charles Soule | Artist: Declan Shalvey | Cover: Steve McNiven I have often criticised comics that ask more questions instead of giving answers as bad reads. However if there is a character that this story trope suits really well then it is Wolverine. It is especially effective in the […]

The Return of Wolverine #1 Writer: Charles Soule | Artist: Steve McNiven | Inks: Jay Leisten | Colourist: Laura Martin | Letters: Joe Sabino My initial response after reading this issue was that it was a very solid story. A decent enough return for a very big character. After re-reading it my overall feeling was […]

Old Man Logan #43-#44 Writer: Ed Brisson | Artist: Juan Ferreyra | Letters: Cory Petit Can we just delay the return of Wolverine for a few more months maybe even a year? Or just give Ed Brisson writing duties when Wolverine does return. Another solid two issues that hopefully leads to a satisfying conclusion next […]

Wolverine Wednesday EXTRA: Marvel Legends 12″ Wolverine Review

by Ian Wells

This is my first ever toy review, but then again this isn’t a toy. It says on the box ‘Ages 4+’ no way at the price I paid for this I would give it to a four year old. It should be ’30+’. Then again at the height of X-Men the animated series’ popularity I […]

Wolverine Wednesday #9

Wolverine’s big return is in full flow with all roads leading to April. In February and March we are getting six more ‘post credits’ across a series of Marvel titles. I can’t believe there is a Wolverine collector out there who has been hardcore enough to pick up these issues for so little Wolverine content. […]

Happy 2018 to everyone and I am predicting an exciting year for all things Wolverine related. All New Wolverine will continue to go from strength to strength under the pen of Tom Taylor and the name Honey Badger will be on everyone’s lips (if it isn’t already). I’m surprised and glad in equal measure that […]

Marvel to answer the question “Where is Wolverine?”

by Phil Wheat

His return to the Marvel Universe was just the beginning, and the Infinity Stone he holds could change everything. Now, the questions begin: Why was he searching for the Infinity Stone? How did he escape his adamantium prison? Where is Wolverine, and what is he hiding? The answers will begin to unravel in 2018, but […]
