Wolverine Wednesday #52

by Ian Wells

X Lives of Wolverine #5 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Joshua Cassara | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit The curtain comes down on X Lives with a very well crafted issue, that strikes a good balance between story and action. The narration excellently explains everything that has been going on how it has […]

Wolverine Wednesday #51

by Ian Wells

There is a lot to get through this week, that should bring me up to date on the events of X Lives/Deaths. I had a delay on X Deaths #5 so I thought it would be best to review to two final issues in the next instalment. That way I can compare and contrast them. […]

eBuying Comics: Week 75

by Ian Wells

Welcome to the first Versus of 2022 and it is a big one to start! This year I wanted to go bigger than just pitting similar characters together. 2022 is also the 30th anniversary of the birth of Image Comic, so what better way to start than by having the Image 7 face off in […]

Wolverine Wednesday #50

X Lives of Wolverine #1 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Joshua Cassara | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit I have been really looking forward to this series since it was first announced. Right away the cover by Adam Kubert hits all the nostalgia notes for long-time Wolverine fans. Since it was announced I […]

eBuying Comics: Week 72

by Ian Wells

This past weekend I attended my first comic con since 2019. In fact it was my first visit to the London Comic Mart since 2017! The one thing I immediately noticed was my fingers were well out of practice at nimbly working my through the long boxes. The good news is that the event seemed […]

Wolverine Wednesday #49

by Ian Wells

Wolverine #19 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Javi Fernandez | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit I didn’t think it was possible to get a great standalone issue in modern comics, especially in the Krakoan Age of X-Men comics we are currently in. But I am always happy to be proven wrong! What I […]

eBuying Comics: Week 70

by Ian Wells

With the doom and gloom all the uncertainty in the real world is bringing I thought I would try and lighten the mood. So this week I’m ditching the comics talk and diving into some toy and collectibles talk. Together we will take a trip to Christmas’s of yesteryear to look at some of my […]

Wolverine Wednesday #48

Wolverine #17 – #18 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artists: Lan Medina & Paco Diaz | Inker: Cam Smith | Colourists: Java Tartglia & Dijjo Lima | Letters: Cory Petit These two issues are a brilliant romp through the espionage flavour of the X-Men world that Benjamin Percy has been shaping in the pages of Wolverine […]

Wolverine Wednesday #47

Wolverine #17 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourists: Frank Martin & Espen Grundetjern | Letters: Cory Petit This issue is the definition of rollercoaster ride. From cover to cover it takes the reader on a ride to the highest of highs and the lowest of lows. This can be applied to both […]

Wolverine Wednesday #46

Wolverine #14-#15 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit In these two issues we were promised the resumption in rivalry between Wolverine and Solem. Instead we get Wolverine facing off against a new character with some ties to Solem which all need to be explained before we […]

Wolverine #13 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Scot Eaton | Inker: Oren Junior | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit The Hellfire Gala comes to the pages of Wolverine… and it’s not an easy read! Since X-Men relaunched under the guidance of Hickman I have been trying to stay in touch with all the […]

Wolverine #12 Writer: Benamin Percy | Artist: Scot Eaton | Inker: JP Mayer | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit Unfortunately this issue brings the current story arc to a climax in much the same fashion as the previous story arc. Lots of good set up, with well balanced action and consequence and then […]

A Memoriam In Four Colours: John Paul Leon

by Ian Wells

This past weekend we lost a well loved and well-respected member of the comics community. John Paul Leon has pulled his chair up to the great drawing board in the sky. Taken way too young at the age of 49 after a battle with cancer. As always with these memoriam pieces I do the out […]

eBuying Comics: Week 55

by Ian Wells

This Easter weekend in between eating chocolate and re-watching The Defenders on Netflix I did some comic collection housekeeping. There was a two pronged attack to the housekeeping: First I wanted to update my want lists both into a new notebook and in order of priority. Next I came across a new website for cataloguing […]

Wolverine Wednesday #42

Wolverine #10 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit Immediately this issue gets bonus points for picking up right where we left things in #9. Not even a fraction of a jump forward. The art helps sell this in a big way. The first page is a […]

Wolverine #9 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Adam Kubert | Colourist: Frank Martin | Letters: Cory Petit I just had a big, stupid smile on my face as I read this from cover to cover! Outside of just being a fun read, this issue actaully moves the story in interesting ways from where we left […]

Wolverine #8 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artists: Adam Kubert & Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourists: Antonio Fabela & Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit I actually really enjoyed this issue despite it not delivering on the cover image. As a sidenote, the cover must be the first time Adam Kubert has drawn Maverick since the 90’s […]

Wolverine #6 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit Right away I found it very annoying this didn’t pick up immediately with the rainbow bridge reveal of last issue. That all probably happened in a different comic. Wolverine #6 is after all part 3 of a 22 […]

Wolverine Wednesday #38

I made the decision to review both issues of Wolverine that tie into X of Swords as one post, and as we are now going into a second lockdown I’m not sure how my LCS will be operating. So this week I will be catching up and giving a review of X-Force having recently picked […]

Wolverine #4 Writer: Benjamin Percy | Artist: Viktor Bogdanovic | Colourist: Matthew Wilson | Letters: Cory Petit When I first read this issue I found it a pretty solid read. But when it came to doing the review and I was flipping through it, it raised a few questions and is a tad confusing. Basically […]
