Format: Hardcover
Reading this story I was most reminded of the opening of Die Another Day in which James Bond is captured by the bad guys and considered a possible traitor by M, forcing him to escape by brutal means. That is the initial premise in this book, too, except that Wolverine is a traitor, having been brainwashed by terrorists.
The rest of the story sees Wolverine taking on the top Marvel superheroes in some big, brash action scenes. It sounds like a fanboy dream. And it is.
Mark Millar is making a name for himself for writing comics as if they were blockbuster movies and he excels himself here. John Romita Jr is one of the best comic book artists of today and he knocks this one out of the ballpark. The only shame is that there are no proper character moments, this is a linear rollercoaster ride of a story that goes at a 100 mph.
I would heartily recommend this to others, and while you're at it, check out Millar's take on Spiderman, which is pretty special too.

Format: Paperback
This book collects the 13 issue run Mark Millar did with John Romita Jnr on Wolverine a few years ago. Wolverine is captured and brainwashed by a terrorist organisation, part ninja, part Nazi, called Hydra led by an undying evil witch and a terrifying assassin called the Gorgon. With Wolverine on their side, they begin picking off heroes and villains to turn them to their cause of complete destruction of the world. It's not a spoiler to say Wolvey overcomes the brainwashing eventually and becomes a good guy once again and the second book has him squaring off against Hydra, the Gorgon, and a powerful hero turned evil.

The series is fast paced and exciting with Wolverine hunting down heroes, breaking into SHIELD HQ the Triskelion, and creating havoc wherever he goes. The Gorgon is a fantastically spooky villain. He looks manga-esque and is Japanese in origin though you don't find out exactly how he came to be until the second book. He's truly scary though and his final battle with Wolverine is very Greek mythology-like.

I like John Romita Jnr's artwork sometimes, here it's adequate but nothing that you're going to go crazy over. At times he makes the heroes look a bit too cartoonish which is a bit off-putting.

Millar's storytelling and hyper-violence are the stars of the show here. His writing makes reading the book that much better and interesting than the average comic book writer could manage.

The 13th issue, a standalone one-shot comic, has Wolverine as a POW in a WW2 concentration camp, driving Nazi officers to insanity with his healing factor. He has no dialogue but this was still a haunting issue that closes out a fantastic volume memorably.

I loved reading this book, both as a fan of Wolverine and as a fan of Mark Millar, and thought Millar and co. did a great job rendering a brilliant character in an epic story. Wonderful read, highly recommended to all fans of superhero comics.

I've been a Marvel fan for more than 25 years and it's been a really long time since I've been so enthusiastic reading a story, specially a Wolverine story. I'm a X-Men fan but I usually don't buy any spin-offs, but when I knew John Romita Jr, (one of my favourite artists) was doing Wolverine I couldn't resist. Personnaly, I think this is the best Wolverine story since the Claremont & Miller mini-series from early 80s and that because of Millar script but most because of the magnificent Romita Jr. art. Buy it! You won't regret.

Format: Paperback
One of the best Wolverine stories i have read since Origin. Mark Millar's fantactic ability to write engrossing and compelling dialogue matched with John Romita JR.'s amazing visuals makes for a fantastic read.

The only bad thing I have to say about this book is the publishing it's so big that it has a tendency to fall apart. Both a friend and I have bought this book and the spine has been very week. My recommendation is to buy the hardback version or the individual volumes.

Format: Hardcover
....not so excellent delivery. Mark Millar is a very good writer, no doubt, but this is far from his finest work. He reuses ideasfrom his ultimate x-men run, and the story seems forced as if he couldn't quite make himself believe in the story or the key character.
John Romita jrs art is very good, however Klaus jansens inking makes it look a little ugly in places.
So far so critical, so why four stars????
Bad mark millar work is still way above average for starters, and even uglyfied JRjr art is excellent. Then we have the simple but amazing concept, something marvel fans have always wanted to see. wolverine cut loose on the unsuspecting marvel universe. a must for all comic fans despite its flaws.
