Wolverine: Origins #21
“The Deep End, Part One”
Writer: Daniel Way
Artist: Steve Dillon
I’ve been pretty critical of this series with its cynical take on Wolverine’s past.
But I am happy to state that this off-beat diversion into the insanity of Deadpool is an absolute delight!
Daniel Way channels Chuck Jones for some genuinely funny and laugh-out-loud moments. And Steve Dillon’s serious art style makes the insanity and Deadpool-Vision even more ludicrous.
Bravo to both Daniel Way and Steve Dillon for this change-of-pace issue. One hopes the remainder of this arc will keep this refreshing comedy coming.
And don’t miss Daniel Way’s interview with Comic Book Resources…
From Marvel (Preview): “He’s a born killer, highly trained in the art of violence. He’s a man out of time, living without fear of death. He’s the best there is at what he does…and he’s about to do it to Wolverine. Enter: DEADPOOL!” On sale Jan 16, 2008.
