Wolverine Week-in-Review: First Class, X-Force, Ultimate X-Men

Aside from Wolverine: Origins #30 (see review), Wolverine appeared in three other issues as well as one cover-only appearance this week (November 26, 2008)…

I really liked this issue. The artwork is outstanding, the story well-written, funny and surprising substantial. If only more comics were like this…

Domino joins the fun in this blood-filled issue that includes an army of Sabretooth clones. How the hell do you kill an army of Sabretooth clones?

Best line of the issue, “If you die, take one of them with you.”

An Ultimatum crossover. And not a very good one.

Wolverine barely cameos in only two panels and not a single word of dialogue…

Wolverine is front and center on the cover, but nowhere to be found in this four-issue series.

I hate when Marvel does that…

  1. To be fair theyve been saying from the beggining hes not in it, if covers cont as appearences in your mind, well mavel aint responsible for that

  2. Whatever happened to the Wolverine manga? Did it get canceled or something ?
