Hunt for Wolverine #1 (Marvel Comics)

Like all dead Marvel characters, it’s time for the original Wolverine to make his grand return to the comic racks. As the start of five (yup, FIVE) mini-series, The Hunt For Wolverine‘s one-shot special sets the stage well for the return of the feral mutant, which shouldn’t be too much of a surprise, as it’s written and drawn by Charles Soule and David Marquez, two of Marvel’s best creators. That leads to a pretty solid stand alone issue that has a surprising amount of emotion behind it. Read the rest of this entry

I know what you’re thinking: “didn’t you already review Civil War II?” And I did. But that was the ZERO issue of Marvel’s new mega event, and that issue barely got things into motion. This week sees the real start of Marvel’s summer crossover, and Brian Michael Bendis and David Marquez’s miniseries starter is a huge improvement over the “zero issue” that was released a few years ago. While I’m still not sold on a sequel to the massive Civil War event from ten years ago, I will admit that Bendis and Marquez certainly have something pretty gripping here. Read the rest of this entry
