From Marvel: “He’s literally clawed his way out of hell, but in this savagely super-sized special, Wolverine’s inner diablo is unleashed when he leads THE LAST RIDE OF THE DEVIL’S BRIGADE. And Logan’s WWII era suicide-mission behind enemy lines is only the beginning of his troubles in a collection from today’s hottest talent that takes the long-lived killer to the bayou, the Mojoverse and beyond!”

One truly outstanding tale, two above average and two that really did not need to be told…

“Last Ride of the Devil’s Brigade”
Writer: Rick Spears; Art: Timothy Green
Interesting tale from April 28, 1945. I’m still not a big fan of the the bone claws during World War II, but at least Logan gets to be a hero…

“Legend of Crimson Falls”
Writer: Jimmy Palmiotti; Artist: Rafa Garres
Ugh…

“The Adamantium Diaries
Writer: Sarah Cross; Artist: Joao Lemos
The best and most heartfelt story of the lot dealing with a young, dorky fan of Wolverine..

“Development Hell”
Writer: Mark Simmone; Penciler: Mike Ryan; Inker: Victor Olazaba
Double ugh…

“Last Men Standing”
Writer: Vince Hernadez Artist: Luke Ross
Another World War II tale with bone claws, this time from 1944. And yes, Logan gets to be a hero again…

Anyone else want to weigh in?

  1. The Adamantium Diaries was by far the best story in the book. It had the heart and soul that most Wolverine stories are missing these days. It just goes to show that a Wolverine story can be taken seriously, without all the mindless gore and violence.

    The two world war 2 stories didn’t do much for me. I’m done caring about Wolverine’s past and all the drama with that. I don’t know about anybody else, but I am only interested in Wolverine’s present life. Which is something Chris Claremont’s early work usually focused on. It seems to me that most of Jason Aaron’s story telling is doing the same for Wolverine.

    The Mojo story was so so so so lame. I think it made babies all over the world cry themselves to sleep.

    Anyone else read this book?

  2. i read this book too, adamantium diaries was also my favorite among all of them.

    stories about his past are just fine with me, the problem i had with both stories was that he used his claws in both of them..as it pretty much contradict most of the old wolverine stories wherein he didn’t know about his bone claws until magneto took out the adamantium..

    the mojo story was lame, i really didn’t like it all.

    the story with the quasi-werewolves was actually alright but i didn’t like the art at all..it was good in some panels but i couldn’t decipher in others…
