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.
