The 22-page first issue of the new Wolverine series that Marvel has been hyping for months hit the stands this week.
The first eight pages are spent in fairly standard fashion setting up the plot of this five-part opening storyline.
The next seven pages show, again in fairly standard fashion, how much of a badass Wolverine is and ostensibly introduces a reporter to the cast.
And the final seven pages are devoted to Wolverine researching the bad guys with the help of a de-powered Maverick.
All in all, a fairly tame issue that sets the groundwork for Jason Aaron’s run.
Perhaps unfairly, I was expecting more, though Ron Garney’s art certainly does not disappoint.
All in all, a decent first issue.
