3.0 out of 5 stars Trying too hard to be epic... 13 Nov 2007
By Valgaav
Format:Hardcover
Here we have a title that tries quite hard to be important and overshoots the runway...
Basically, the story focuses on what could be the final clash between Wolverine and Sabretooth. Sabretooth being my favourite Marvel character, and the rivalry between these characters also being my favourite, I felt it my duty to buy this book (having only glanced at Wolverine Issue 55 in the past).
Well, where to begin? Bianchi's art would probably be the best place to start, it's nothing short of gorgeous and beautifully detailed, making each fight between these characters (and of course there are a lot of those throughout this book) as exhilarating as the next. And the dialogue itself is not that bad either, or at least, both Wolverine and Sabretooth remain in character. However if you are keeping up with any other X-men titles, the problems with the writing become glaringly obvious pretty quickly.
The book opens with Wolverine challenging Sabretooth at the X-mansion. If you have been following the X-men storyline however, this makes little sense. Yes, Sabretooth was being held at the mansion for a while (as seen in X-men: Supernovas), but never living comfortably as he's shown here. Well, maybe the X-men gave him a break? We can only speculate. However small this mistake may be, it's a prime example of how Loeb seems to be making things up as he goes along.
So the book focuses mainly on Wolverine's amalgam of memories and flashbacks, and where Sabretooth ties in with all this. Somehow we are presented with the fact that, since it's been established that the two are not related that perhaps they are descended from a species of wolf men. Personally though, I'd always considered Sabretooth to be more closely linked with wild cats, his name being the first clue.

3.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for the art, as for the story... 20 Feb 2008
Format:Hardcover
Jeph Loeb is a talented writer, and the pace of this story is pretty good, the characterization is also very good. However, the plot is all over the place. Sabretooth gets involved in the story at a point he is an unwilling member of the X-men, however this story doesn't fit with X-men stories that came out around the same time. minor point I know. Also it establishes the fact that wolverine is not a mutant but a different species entirely, as is sabretooth, wolfesbane, feral, thorn, sasquatch and any x-men related character that is a bit hairy and has claws. Also many of these characters were depowered and were no longer mutants after the events of house of M. something that the writer attempts to explain at least. Still despite being a continuity breaking story the pacing and action are all well handles, and it is an entertaining read. The art is fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars Don't be misled 17 Nov 2007
By Sam
Format:Hardcover
I dont wish to use this review as a critique on other reviews of this book, but to be quite frank, some of the gripes about this book are completley unjustified. There are a few confusing moments, (sabretooth at the mansion in particular), but if your willing to overlook these and go with the flow the story provides so much insight into wolverines origin/evolution that this is essential reading. As an X-Men reader of 20 years, i'm sick and tired of just being given half truths and explanations for Wolverine, but this actually feels like it's got some substance. This isnt the greatest comic i've read, the art is often confusing and misleading, the dialogue patchy, but the sheer amount of 'wow' moments deserves the 4 stars.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing 27 Nov 2007
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Jeph Loeb's hyped return to Marvel has been pretty disappointing. Case in point, his arc on Wolverine. Wolverine: Evolution finds Marvel's most popular mutant going toe to toe with who else? His old foe Sabretooth that's who. While any other time the combination of Loeb, Wolverine, and a bloody battle with Sabretooth sounds like a win-win situation for all, Evolution ends up being, well, pretty boring. Once we get to the main event, Evolution becomes a predictable and pretty underwhelming Wolvie VS Sabretooth story that goes nowhere. Not to mention that the dialogue is lame, and the plot itself is so far beneath nearly anything that Loeb has crafted for Marvel before that you'll be wondering just what went wrong here. The bright spot of Wovlerine: Evolution is the excellent artwork from newcomer Simone Bianchi, who is destined to be one of the next, big name artists in comics today. I'd go so far as to recommend Wolverine: Evolution just to check out Bianchi's art, which you definitely should. Other than that though, Wolverine: Evolution is worth a look for Wolvie and/or Loeb fans, but all others are better off leaving this on the shelf.
1.0 out of 5 stars Don't waste your time. 16 Jun 2014
By Brian Watson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Hands down one of the worst reads ever. Loeb tries to be creative and reinsert a origin for Wolverines power's that were scrapped when he was in development. This is a disastrous idea since it completely changes what his character is. And this whole story is based around that whole fact. It's sold as a big duke out between Wolverine and Sabertooth, but it's not. There is like one and a half fight between them, and they suck. This whole story sucks, just avoid this, and I've heard Mr. Loeb wrote a sequel to it. I haven't read that, but if it continues this same plot thread avoid that too. They suck.
3.0 out of 5 stars Great Artwork, but Not so great story. 26 Jan 2014
By Justin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I love this story as a whole. What grabs my attention is NOT the story, but the Art work. All in all it still is a great read, and I like what happens at the end. Even though the story sort of ends. One of my favorite reads. However, I do not like the sequel they made: Wolverine (Sabretooth Reborn) Collects 310-313. Wolverine: Evolutions (collects Wolverine 50-55).
5.0 out of 5 stars Great read 19 July 2013
By Amazon Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This was a great read. It had everything I like in a Wolverine title. Made me think, had plenty of violence and unexpected characters. Some might feel they were left hanging but who doesn't like a cliff hanger?
4.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful but yet deadly! 9 July 2012
By Rich - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
First off let me say how I have notice that many reviews here gave this 2 to 3 stars due to the act of story telling not so good. But yet I remind you that this is WOLVERINE WERE TALKING ABOUT HERE!!! Who cares about the story telling when it comes to him. If you want great story telling then I would pick up other great novels like Wolverine Origins. When it comes to Sabbertooth and Wolverine all I want to see is NAILS & CLAWS swinging at each other and thats exact what the BOOK DISHES OUT! The art work is dark and beautiful. One of the finest art work Ive seen in comics today and there is a personal message behind these 2 warriors who truley despise one another. Also Storm looks beautiful and brought to life! This is heart pounding action from start to finsh. If your a Wolverine fan then this is a must to have but if your just looking for a good story telling read then I'de go somewhere else. You are either gonna love it or hate it. I certainly choose to love it because honestly... whats not to love about this?
