Book Description

26 Aug 2009 Wolverine (Marvel Paperback)
Collecting four tales of all-out Wolverine action! First, meet the Road Dawgs. The meanest, nastiest, most jacked-up biker gang you ever could meet. But tonight there's a stranger sitting on the stool at the end of the bar. Someone who's come here to pick a fight. Someone who's hunting far bigger game than these roughnecks, and knows exactly how to get its attention. Before the stroke of midnight, he'll get his wish. It's Wolverine at his fiercest! Then, you've heard the story before: A beautiful woman picks up a guy in a bar. They have a couple drinks, show each other a good time. And when he wakes up the next morning, the guy finds himself in a bathtub full of ice, with two fewer kidneys than he had the night before. Well, Wolverine's heard this story, too, and he ain't too thrilled by it. In fact, he's willing to bring an end to it in the most direct way he can think of! Also, all Logan wanted was a little drive in the fresh mountain air. What he got was the stench of death on a little patch of road outside the town of Pottsville. Collecting Wolverine: Chop Shop, Wolverine: Switchback, Wolverine Holiday Special: Flies To A Spider, and Wolverine Dead Man's Hand.

`Wolverine - Flies to a Spider' is like `The Littlest Hobo' or `Highway to Heaven'; if either of these shows featured a blade sporting mutant who liked to more than just dabble in a touch of the ultra-violence. `Flies' is the dark side of Marvel and Wolverine is one of their darkest characters; brooding with a strong sense of justice. Free from the namby pamby goody two shoes of `The X Men', here Wolverine is free to dish out a type of revenge that is best served cold and sliced.

4 short stories are collected that represent a cross section of Wolverines life - from roaming the plains of America to the mountains of Japan. Each story is basically the same, Wolverine putting something right that he sees is wrong - a biker gang who have killed an innocent, or a corrupt officer playing loose with the lives of others. Some of the stories stand out better than others in terms of both writing and art work, but all have merit. If you enjoy comic based snippets like 2000 Ads Thrag's short stories, you will love this collection.

As a group of stories `Flies' taps into a primeval sense of justice that many of us have, Wolverine is able to punish those you would be too afraid to approach. It is overly violent and this will put off many, but the centre of each tale is about Wolverine's inherent goodness and for that reason I found myself thinking about some of the stories days after I had finished reading them. The only annoying thing about the collection was the use of Wolverine in an X Man costume on the cover, when this is not seen in the strip it is from - pandering to the marketing men I think! However, this is a small issue with one of the best graphic novels I have read in recent years.
