As for the other Wolverine appearances of the week…

More of the same from Jeph Loeb and Ian Churchill, though Wolverine only cameos for three pages.

While I can’t recommend this book, I would be interested to hear from folks who have been reading it on a regular basis to see what merits this book does have…

This series started with such promise, but has become so overly complex, manipulative and maddeningly ambiguous that I am really looking forward to it moving into its final stages. Though I should note that Wolverine does cameo in passing.

Again, I would love to hear from fans of this book to see what it is that I am missing…

Finally, I should note the ‘Wolverine and the X-Men’ completed its first season with a rousing three-part finale, Foresight. Some truly terrific storytelling with a cliffhanger that promises a fun second season.
