Wolverine: First Class #5
Writer: Fred Van Lente
Artist: Clayton Henry
Another really strong issue.
A little bizarre in that it’s all flashback, but pretty good at chronicling Wolverine’s days with Alpha Flight. The screen of Alpha Flight candidates is especially well done (what with Stitch and Smart Alec).
Unfortunately, Van Lente seems to mix up a Colonel Kinney with Major Chasen — the guy whose tie Wolverine cut off when he resigned his Canadian commission prior to joining the X-Men.
And the goat.
I have no idea what’s up with the goat.
