Wolverine: First Class #4
“The Last Knights of Wundagore, Part Two”
Writer: Fred Van Lente
Artist: Salva Espin
Looking at the abysmal sales of this series (22,430 for issue 3), it makes me wonder if ‘Wolverine: First Class’ is perceived as a comic for kids. Which is a shame, for it cleverly honors the Wolverine and Kitty Pryde of the 1980s, an era that few kids would go back and read.
That said, it would be refreshing for Marvel to produce kids comics of this quality for the series is a hoot, adding classic lines to the mythos such as Wolverine pronouncing, “I’m the best at what I do. And what I do is… is… RUN!”
If you’re undecided on ‘Wolverine: First Class,’ let me recommend you take a look at the synopsis page… perhaps the best in comics today.
From Marvel (preview): “Wolverine has been ‘evolved’ out of his berserker instincts… Kitty Pryde has been mutated into a half-cat, half-human creature… And they are all that stands between an unsuspecting Earth and the ravenous hordes of the rampaging MAN-BEAST!” On sale June 25, 2008.
