Wolverine: First Class #6
Writer: Fred Van Lente
Artist: Salva Espin
Another terrific issue from Fred Van Lente.
Wolverine is hysterical, decked out in Calgary Flames gear and waiting for game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals to begin as is his unrivaled joy at the prospect of an evening drinking beer, watching hockey and eating donuts.
Even better are his reactions to all the obstacles that attempt to get in his way.
“I’m the best there is at what I do. And what I do is WATCH HOCKEY!”
And the comedy dissolves to a very sweet ending, even for a curmudgeon like me.
