Review: Wolverine: Infinity Watch #2

Wolverine: Infinity Watch #2

Wolverine is the best there is at what he does. But how is he at protecting the universe from cosmic disaster? Would you guess better or worse than Loki, the admitted god of lies? We’re about to find out.

I wasn’t much of a fan for the debut issue of Wolverine: Infinity Watch. Wolverine: Infinity Watch #2 is an improvement but it still feels a bit off in its story and execution.

Written by Gerry Duggan, Wolverine and Loki are on a mission and that’s focused on keeping a convict infused with an Infinity Stone alive. It’s a chase comic with police after him as well as a Chitauri warlord (and others who want the stone). There’s fights. There’s some action. But, overall, it’s kind of lacking. Without a clear plan the comic feels rather motionless in a way. It’s almost feels like Wolverine and Loki don’t even know what they’re really doing and maybe that’s part of the point, making it up as they go.

The art by Andy MacDonald with color by Jordie Bellaire and lettering by Cory Petit is again ok but nothing too exciting. The comic feels a bit like a secondary mini-series to an event in the look. It’s serviceable but doesn’t stand out as anything particularly special. The standout as far as art is when Wolverine’s height is used for some comedy. Though at other times Wolverine being short isn’t as apparent. That sort of inconsistency doesn’t help.

The comic is ok and as part of the greater story of the Infinity Stones it will wind up be interesting but on its own, the comic is so deep in continuity plus the execution feels so stretched out without focus, the execution is a bit boring. Lay out the goal, give us an enemy, tell us what might happen, give us something to dread and cheer for. As is, there’s little excitement.

Review: Wolverine: Infinity Watch #1

Wolverine: Infinity Watch #1

Wolverine has finally returned, disentwined from the evil clutches of Soteira…but hang on, didn’t he have an Infinity Stone? How did THAT happen?! And wasn’t he popping up all over the place for a little while? The answers you seek are finally revealed as Logan goes cosmic alongside everyone’s favorite god of lies and stories, Loki Laufeyson!

Wolverine: Infinity Watch #1 begins to put the pieces of a puzzle together that’s years in the making. Writer Gerry Duggan does the task of making the picture clearer as its been a bit insane over the years with hints and teases but never a clear answer. Some of that happens here but the result is a story so convoluted it feels like classic Marvel involving alternate timelines and time travel.

The result is an issue that’s for the diehard fans. It’s not easy to get in to and even having read all of the important issues, it’s still hard to keep track of everything. The first issue in a way acts as a recap painting a clearer picture but with so many references, one needs a guide on top of the issue.

The art by Andy MacDonald with color by Jordie Bellaire and lettering by Cory Petit is ok. There isn’t much to be excited about as there’s no flashy moments and the characters look good. MacDonald has a style and design aspect and you’ll either enjoy it or not. It’s not my cup of tea but it might be yours. Still, there’s nothing wrong with the art, it’s just a personal style preference in the end.

The issue is an interesting start and attempts to put together a story years in the making. The task isn’t enviable and beyond difficult to make it clear and entertaining for old and new readers. Wolverine: Infinity Watch #1 is a perfectly fine first issue but it’s one that only diehard fans along for the ride will truly enjoy.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Black Badge #7

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors choose what they can’t wait to read this week or just sounds interesting. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look at!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Black Badge #7 (BOOM! Studios) – The Badge of Champions reaches its blood conclusion! This series takes the concept of Scouts to a whole new level.

Go-Bots #4 (IDW Publishing) – Tom Scioli continues to rock this series which brings the classic property back with childlike fun.

High Level #1 (DC Comics/Vertigo) – The latest Vertigo release, written by Rob Sheridan with art by Barnaby Bagenda and Romulo Fajardo takes a look at a future society built from scratch and hopefully delivers the social commentary we’d expect from Vertigo.

Hulkverines #1 (Marvel) – Every time we’ve expected little from this concept it not only surprised us but blew us away.

Incursion #1 (Valiant) – It’s the Geomancer and Eternal Warrior standing against an invasion.

Letter to Survivors (New York Review Comics) – A graphic novel that follows a postal worker on his bizarre mail route in a post-apocalyptic world.

Naomi #2 (DC Comics/Wonder Comics) – The first issue set up an interesting mystery in the DC universe and we want to see where it goes.

Sharkey Bounty Hunter #1 (Image Comics/Millarworld) – With Millar’s Netflix deal, we want to see what properties are being created.

Stronghold #1 (AfterShock Comics) – From writer Phil Hester and artist Ryan Kelly, the concept is intriguing. Our planet is actually a prison designed to shelter and trap an amnesiac alien of incalculable power.

Wolverine: Infinity Watch #1 (Marvel) – Now we can finally find out what the hell is going on.
