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)…

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.
