Writer: Brian K. Vaughan
Artist: Eduardo Risso
Just as this issue begins a descent into eye-rolling cliche, Brian Vaughan redeems himself with a wonderfully foreshadowed turn of phrase (‘Gomen nasai’) and a cleverly done surprise.
Yet as enjoyable as this series is, it does seem to ignore the loss of Logan’s immortality as suggested by Marc Guggenheim in recent issues of ‘Wolverine.’ Of course, that could simply mean this series comes before the aforementioned story, but one hopes the removal of Wolverine’s invincibility rolls through the rest of his appearances sooner rather than later.
From Marvel (preview): “Returning to the place that made him the man he is today, Wolverine faces off against an all-new enemy in an epic clash with a last page that has to be seen to be believed.” On sale April 2, 2008.
