Aside from Wolverine: Manifest Destiny #1 (see review), Wolverine appeared in two other issues this week (October 22, 2008)…
Secret Invasion #7 (no preview)
Writer: Brian Michael Bendis
Penciler: Leinil Francis Yu; Inker: Mark Morales
The penultimate issue arrives and after seven months of back story, red herrings and build up, we finally get the battle we’ve all been waiting for. And by the time I was finished, all I could think was, is that it?
It’s not a bad battle. It’s pretty good actually. But after all this waiting, I just expected something startling, something jaw dropping.
So I think I speak for everyone when I say, Secret Invasion #8 had better deliver. After eight months, after hijacking half the books in the Marvel Universe, this better be the greatest finale ever written.
Other than that, no pressure.
X-Men: Legacy #217 (preview)
Writer: Mike Carey
Penciler: Scot Eaton; Inker: Andrew Hennessy
Daken takes center stage in Original Sin, Part Two, and frankly, I haven’t warmed up to him at all. Wolverine gets some action, but there isn’t a whole lot there beyond what we got in the preview. Much like Secret Invasion, here is yet another Marvel storyline that is getting overly dragged out.
Part III comes next week in Wolverine: Origins #29. Can’t wait? Check out this sneak preview.
