Aside from Astonishing X-Men #27 (see my review), Wolverine appeared in five other issues this week (October 15, 2008)…
Uncanny X-Men #503 (preview)
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!
Marvel Adventures the Avengers #29 (preview)
Writer: Paul Tobin & Jeff Parker
Penciler: Ig Guara; Inker: Sandro Ribiero
More sitcom hijinks, this time with Thor, Storm and Odin. And Wolverine mistaken for a troll. <sigh>
Secret Invasion: Front Line #4 (preview)
Writer: Brian Reed
Penciler: Marco Castiello
Wolverine cameos on the final page and that’s it.
