Hugh Jackman’s Wolverine: The Musical

Hugh Jackman performs Wolverine The Musical for The Matt Edmondson Show. The humorous segment takes Les Miserables ‘Who Am I’ and adds some new lyrics.

Wolverine Meets His Demise as 3 Months to Die Begins This June!

Strap in for a gut-wrenching, blood soaked tale of betrayal, vengeance and a hero’s death as 3 Months to Die kicks off this June in Wolverine #8! All culminating in a grisly September finale that will have the whole world on the edge of their seat!

Friend. Teacher. X-Man. Avenger. Assassin. Hero. The man called Logan has worn many faces and lived many lives. Tortured by the horrors of his past, Logan has spent the better part of his life on a path to redemption.

But all paths eventually end. And there will be no happy ending for the Wolverine. Left without his healing factor, the invulnerable killing machine has found himself mortal for the first time in his long life. And as past sins come back to haunt him – he’ll have to pay the ultimate price.

Alienated and alone with no X-Men to protect him, a killable Wolverine prepares to make his final stand. Deadly forces are closing in, and time is almost up. What will become of the Wolverine? And what does the Marvel Universe look like without him in it? Nothing lasts forever, and the beginning of the end starts this June in Wolverine #8!

The clock is ticking. Wolverine has 3 Months to Die!

Review: Wolverine #1

Wolverine_1_CoverBeaten, bloodied, and left for dead by Sabretooth, Logan is out for revenge! And he’s going to get it by any means necessary! But before he can take on Sabretooth again – he’ll have to get better, stronger, and smarter than ever before! But that’s not as easy as he may have thought

And soon he’ll find himself turning to darker, more sinister means of getting what he wants – all in the name of retribution! Even if that means operating on the wrong side of the law to do it!

After Wolverine became killable this first story arc of his latest volume, dubbed “Payback,” promises to redefine the character. Now working for a crime boss called The Offer, Logan must relearn how to fight and survive without his defining characteristic, his healing factor.

The comic, though good, suffers from over  hype, partially to blame due to the press leading up to the comic. I was a bit disappointed. This has nothing to do with writer Paul Cornell‘s fantastic writing ability, or the great art by Ryan Stegman. It’s just in the end, we’ve got Wolverine on the wrong side of the law. I think we’ve seen that before.

The good is, there’s a lot of potential here. Cornell is a writer who can definitely dig down into the “man” and play off his new vulnerability. Stegman’s art is always fantastic. So, while the first issue was a bit of a let down, I think the series as a whole will be pretty good, and one of Wolverine’s better recent runs. I went in expecting the hype, and came away entertained, but not blown away.

But, the comic suffers from over hype. It’s an interesting direction, and the art and writing is solid, but can’t say it’s a “bold new” one.

Story: Paul Cornell Art: Ryan Stegman
Story: 7.5 Art: 8 Overall: 7.5 Recommendation: Read
