Wolverine: Origins #29
‘Original Sin, Part III’
Writer: Daniel Way
Artist: Mike Deodato
Before I dig into the story itself, let me point out that Mike Deodato’s art has been a very refreshing breath of fresh air. It has visually transformed this series from Steve Dillon’s overly bright, stark and glowering ugliness into the more appropriately gritty, shadowy and dark look and feel, something this series has lacked for a long time and in hindsight desperately needed.
As for the story, I again get the sense that we are wading through excess padding for the sake of a trade paperback to be printed later. The entire Hellfire Club sequence is revealed to be a red herring and we are only given glimpses of the point of this series… the “true” story of Xavier and Wolverine’s first meeting.
The final two parts of ‘Original Sin’ are due on November 19 and 26. And for me, they can’t come soon enough.
