Wolverine Week-39-in-Review: Ten Is the Luckiest Number…

(Dark) Wolverine appeared in TEN TITLES last week (September 23, 2009), plus we catch up on an appearance I missed from a few weeks past.

So let’s get to the reviews by our very own jrpbsp

And as usual, I share my curmudgeonly impressions for the rest of the Wolverine docket…

New Avengers is not quite as good as Dark Avengers, but Bendis continues to impress, even if Wolverine has gone walkies.

So why the mention here? Dark Wolverine cameos…

What a letdown…

Marvel Zombies Return #4 (details)

Wolverine appears on the cover only…

Hulk Team-Up #1 (details)
Writer: Marc Sumerak
Penciller: Sanford Greene
Inker: Victor Olazaba

I have no idea how I missed this Wolverine cameo from two weeks ago, but miss it I did.

Nothing special, mind you, but it is a minor Wolverine appearance…

Shifting gears to animation, we had another new episode of ‘Wolverine and the X-Men’ this past Friday, Aces & Eights, a well-done story focusing on Gambit. For full details, see the Marvel.com preview.

No new episode this Friday with only four to go in the season…
