Format: Paperback
This is an excellent if blood-splattered adventure story that runs through issues #6-10 of the current Wolverine Max series, collected as Wolverine Max Volume 2: Escape to L.A.. The amnesiac Wolverine has moved to L.A. and is trying to keep a low profile after his adventures in Japan in the previous volume. He adopts a dog - named Dog - and a visiting British `model' (and please note the use of apostrophes there) who he signs up as driver for, though quickly turning into bodyguard / interfering busybody when one of her `interviews' with a producer gets a bit out of hand. Needless to say, she has a chequered past, and when the producer decides to make an example of Wolverine's dog Dog, it is soon Tarantino time. After three issues of violent bloodshed and revenge - but no sign of Japanese / ninja imagery, it is all American violence this time, we follow a note planted for Wolverine to find, that takes him on the road to Las Vegas, though he never makes it, due to bumping into a former FBI agent who has some knowledge of Wolvie's past, as he was the agent tasked with capturing him back in the day, before he became a coke-fuelled bank robber - the agent that is, not Wolvie. He manages to last for two issues...

This is an exciting and entertaining storyline, and I found it more interesting than the Japanese themed story we had last issue. Here Wolverine is just a lone gunfighter / PI figure in a noirish mystery story, before we get a look into his past in the second story, which is leading us on towards the next volume. I am definitely along for the ride.

Find a Classic Wolverine Story Underneath a Gritty MAX Title 6 Nov. 2013
By S. H. Wells - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Wolvie's escapades in California are the sequel to a violent episode in Japan (see Wolverine Max - Volume 1 )

At the core of this volume is a good old fashioned Wolverine story. A story of a loner searching for his past: he's rough and gruff but he's also got a lot of heart. These classic characteristics of Wolverine are lost in the myriad of X-Men and Avengers teams that include Wolverine.

Writer Jason Starr manages to keep the attention on Wolverine's forgotten past while a "Pretty Woman" plot goes horribly wrong for our protagonist. Loner Wolverine and his dog (named dog) find an adult-industry actress who seems like she needs a friend. Candy turns out to be no hooker with a heart of gold and gets Wolverine entangled with some seriously bad guys. Artist Felix Ruiz does a fantastic job of creating a gritty atmosphere with distorted silhouettes and thick lines.

The second part of the novel covers Wolverine's exodus from LA toward Las Vegas. But a man from Wolverine's past is on his tail. Does he know more about Wolverine than he's letting on? Do Readers get a MAJOR revelation about the origin of Wolverine's claws? Is it just another schmuck trying to exploit Logan's amnesia? Reader's are left with almost as many questions as Wolvie but not before artist Roland Boschi treats readers to some great flashback panels of Wolvie in the 70's (and a few panels of a classic 80s coke party).

Note that Marvel's "MAX" imprint is intended for adults. The gore is a little more gruesome. There is partial nudity and a few F-bombs.

The Wolverine Max story continues in Wolverine Max Volume 3
