From Marvel: “It hasn’t exactly been easy for Wolverine and Hercules lately. As if combating the most fearsome creatures of ancient mytholgy weren’t enough, it’s worse when they’re all working for the Hand. With a band of zombie thugs to contend with, the sea monster Kraken unleashed, and Mastsuo and King Eurytheus at the helm, it’ll take more than godly heroics and mutant know-how to end this once and for all.”

To my mind, this series is the epitome of what is wrong with comics today.

It simply did not need to exist.

The comics universe would have been the richer for it not having been published. What little money was spent on it could have supported a much worthier title fighting for survival in such an oversaturated environment.

I mean, the writing was dreadful, and as far as I can tell, the theme of this series revolved around decidedly unfunny references to bad movies. And, the kicker is that the story retconned in on itself such that its non-existence would have gone unnoticed.

Aside from that, how was the play, Mrs. Lincoln?

    I said it before and I’ll say it again.

    You see this book here?

    It’s in that link….

    Matsu’o Tsurayaba had a much better story resolution and Chris Yost delivered a much better finale to Wolverine’s hatred for Matsu’o then the crap that was presented in the Wolverine and Hercules crossover.

    [rage / end]
