Wolverine Week-in-Review: Uncanny, Ultimate Origins and More

Aside from Astonishing X-Men #27 (see my review), Wolverine appeared in five other issues this week (October 15, 2008)…

Writer: Matt Fraction and Ed Brubaker
Penciler: Greg Land; Inker: Jay Leisten

I’ve said it before, I’ll say it again. Greg Land’s glamorous artwork just does not work for the X-Men. And frankly the dialogue isn’t working for me either. The speech patterns just seem off for most of the cast, girly-girl. And since when does Nightcrawler call Wolverine “Liebchen”?

Wolverine barely cameos in a montage piece (see Where’s Logan, Waldo-style), but in any event, this issue is a big letdown. Let Ultimatum being already!

More sitcom hijinks, this time with Thor, Storm and Odin. And Wolverine mistaken for a troll. <sigh>

Wolverine cameos on the final page and that’s it.

Everything you need to know about the Ultimate Universe but were afraid to ask.

Oh and it’s free.

  1. I’m really let down by the Ultimate universe this year. Both Ultimate Origins and Ultimates 3 sucked.

    But I shouldn’t complain. Dig has to read “Marvel Adventures” . I glanced through it at the store, and I was so annoyed I put it back down. It’s horrible.

  2. Wonderful beat ! I wish to apprentice while you amend your website,
    how could i subscribe for a blog website? The account aided
    me a acceptable deal. I had been tiny bit acquainted of this your broadcast offered bright clear idea

  3. You actually make it appear really easy with your presentation but I find this topic to be actually one thing that I think I’d by no means understand.
    It sort of feels too complex and extremely large for me.
    I am looking forward in your subsequent post, I will try to get
    the cling of it!

  4. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else experiencing issues with your blog.
    It appears like some of the text on your posts are running off the screen.
    Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know
    if this is happening to them as well? This could be
    a problem with my web browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
