This issue makes a lot more sense if you read the voiceover separately from the rest of the issue. Not the cleanest of storytelling methods, but it is the only way I could make heads or tails of the story.
Wolverine, alas, is very much a passenger this month, both literally and figuratively. And this being a blog about Wolverine, you can probably see why this issue left me wanting. Wanting Wolverine to do something. Something other than riding shotgun. Like shooting a shotgun.
From Marvel (preview): “It began with one simple mission: Kill the Purifier leader Matthew Risman before he kills any more mutants. But everything went to hell…and now it gets worse. Wolfsbane’s decent continues. War rages between Risman and Bastion. The Choir rises. And if that weren’t enough… it’s X-FORCE VERSUS ARCHANGEL.” On sale July 16, 2008.
