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.

  1. I read it. It was pretty cool , but if each issue represents the equivalent of a “Television episode” of story telling, then this felt like a “half a episode”. The story clearly focused on the bad guys , or a specific villains point of view. Which was ok for me ,since we need to switch it up every now and then. It clearly wasn’t a waste of time to learn the motives of X-Forces arch nemesis. Oh and Wolfsbane is hot, maybe the sexiest female mutant on X-Force. <3
