I haven’t followed a comic series for quite some time, so when I heard Wolvie was back I went to my local comic shop and picked up #1 on release day. Issue #1 was a slightly open with little plot (read my full review here), but I decided I’d give it a few issues. Now issue #2 has been released and it is sadly, a disappointment. The is very little plot to analyze: Wolvie and the Lunch Lady take a boat ride in pursuit of LL’s son. There is a brief fight with Omega Red (maybe a clone?) and Daken(?). Though both get beaten quickly and easily leading the reader to assume they weren’t real. Let’s hope #3 is better.

Review: Return of Wolverine #1

Today marks the return of everyone’s favorite cigar-chomping, baddie-impaling superhero, Wolverine. If you just said, “wait, what? Wolverine was dead?!” Then you should check out the Death of Wolverine. Check out the video trailer for more details:

While beautifully drawn, the comic raises more questions than it answers. A few I had while reading:

Why are Wolvie’s claws glowing red hot? Was he in Hell?

What caused the wound on his side? (Muramasa blade?)

Why was the lunch lady wearing a lab coat? And why does she know how to suture a wound closed with a staple gun?

The lunch lady say, “I know why you wear blue and yellow.” Then Wolvie puts on black and red? Is he the real wolverine, or just a clone? Is that why he has no memories? Are they being uploaded into a clone body?

Too early to say much, we’ll have to let a few issues unfold, but I’m excited none the less.
