Writer: Joseph Clark
Artist: Das Pastoras

What at first glance appears to be a cliche-ridden story turns into something quite different, helped by the most intriguing art style of Das Pastoras.

Definitely worth a look….

“Punching Bag”
Writer: Gregg Hurwitz
Artist: Juan Doe

The backup story actually got me to laugh out loud a few times. A very pleasant surprise…

  1. It was also sold out in my store. :(

    I’ll check tomorrow and see if they got it in. ^_^

  2. I managed to pick up Wolverine and Power Pack #3. It was pretty much the standard one and done story as usual. My only concerns with it was that the kids went back in time to meet Wolverine when he was a kid. First off, because of the story the cover didn’t work for the story at all. Secondly, as we know James Howlett was a sickly child and his dad transports him almost across the entire continent to New York just for a business deal. I think someone’s in the running for father of the year. But it did have the little life lesson at the end to at least give the story a bit of heart and characterization for our favorite character.

    By the way, Wolverine was also in Eternals #7 just to appear on the last page.

  3. Good to know… I just tracked down a copy and will add my thoughts to my next Week-in-Review, as well as Eternals #7.

    Please do continue to let me know what appearances I have missed… it is hard to catch them all and genuinely appreciate your help!

  4. Did you get the appearance for “What If : Fallen Son” ?

    Logan was in it very briefly behind bars. Issue came out in December I think.
