From Marvel: “Wolverine’s Revenge, Part 1: First, Wolverine was sent to hell. Then he was forced to fight for control of his own mind against demonic invaders. All thanks to the machinations of a mysterious group called the Red Right Hand. Who are they and what is their grudge against Logan? And how do they hope to survive now that Wolverine has come looking for some revenge of his own?”

On sale June 8, 2011.

I think the world of Jason Aaron.

In my opinion, he’s one of the best Wolverine writers, if not the best, in a long time.

Unfortunately, the story and pacing of “Wolverine’s Revenge, Part 1” just do not work for me.

We start with Wolverine’s bloody battle with a seriously D-list villain (Cannonfoot?!?), interspersed rather inelegantly with 12 pages of humdrum flashbacks. And the final page is so weak, one wonders if the printers forgot to print Aaron’s traditionally jaw-dropping cliffhanger.

Perhaps that’s what we get when Marvel cranks this series up to two issues in a single month.

Too harsh?

  1. I felt like this book was basically a set up for issue #11.

    Canon Foot was indeed lame, but he was used as a building block for something much greater. Perhaps this isn’t a excuse but I think he was meant to be killed off by Wolverine. I think the Red Hand wants Logan to butcher them all, because it will probably complete some kind of occult ritual that will ultimately screw over Logan somehow.

    Either way I think this book did a good job of telling us more about the villains which was necessary.
