Wolverine: The Best There Is #2 (preview)
Writers: Charles Huston
Art: Juan Jose Ryp
From Marvel: “The most shocking Wolverine ongoing continues as writer Charlie Huston and artist Juan Jose Ryp bring you the high octane, blood soaked action you’ve been demanding! Wolverine has just made himself a new worst enemy by the name of Contagion and it’s time for him to let loose. But before everyone’s favorite ill-tempered mutant can give him the ol’ three-claws-to-chest treatment, he’s going have to work his way through Contagion’s legion of “unkillable” cronies. First on the list? The completely insane Madcap! Unfortunately for Logan, not only can this lunatic not die, he’s got a deadly new trick up his sleeve. Its 12 rounds (and then some) of unstoppable killing machine vs. death-defying homicidal maniac!”

Definitely better than last issue, but let’s be honest, that’s not saying much.
I found this issue to be a bloodfest for the sake of shock value — and that is certainly how Marvel is marketing it.
Not my cup of tea — and I like a good bloodfest every now and then.
