Ok so I am a big Wolverine fan like alot of other people and I have been steadily growing my X-men collection so this seemed like a natural buy after M Day. Hmm. He starts the book angry but he isn't sure who at so chases some leads from one place to another while the story is cut up with scenes of his past. Cue new character that you don't end up caring about and some cameos from the X-men but after finishing the story I felt like he hadn't really gone anywhere. The writing isn't bad but the art work ..well..doesn't work. It is the same bloke who did Preacher which is beautifully drawn but ends up turning Wolverine from a grisled old man to a clean shaven 20 something. M Day did him some good it seems. He also seems to switch from being unlikable as past self to an old (young) moaner in the present. Overall this book didn't make me want to buy the others even though I want to see the back story to Dakan. I might revisit the series once I am out of other things to read.

Format: Paperback
Wolverine gets his memory back and decides to get his revenge on his former handlers who made him perform a series of heinous deeds many years ago. But a direct attack on the White House by mysterious forces coincides with a visit by Wolverine, implicating him in the terrorist incident. The President orders they send Frank Simpson aka Nuke after Wolverine to take him out once and for all.

I've read Daniel Way's "Wolverine Origins" series in a pretty haphazard order, picking up volumes whenever I see them rather than reading them in order, so I'm actually finishing the series with the first book! So I know all about the revelations that follow, etc etc but "Born in Blood" is still a pretty damn good read.

We find out just how much of a bastard Logan's been in the past - and he's a pretty mean git at the best of times! - and some of the things he does in the `60s is really dark. And for those who enjoyed "Daredevil: Born Again", Nuke returns with some updates to fight Logan with and Way gives him a pretty nasty backstory on how he came to be the brainwashed killing machine he is.

Steve Dillon's art is fantastic as ever and there's a pretty decent superhero fight at the end which isn't just mutant powers zapping to and fro but has some interesting tactical moves between Wolverine and... well I won't spoil it. But Way's put some thought into it rather than just have the supes bash one another mindlessly.

As for the rest of the series, the best stuff happens in the first five books but the rest of the series isn't bad either and is worth reading if you're a Wolverine fan. "Born in Blood" is an excellent beginning and has plenty of blood and violence to stay true to the (black) soul of the character. Good stuff.

Format: Paperback
What can i say check this out. Its a piece of the puzzle of wolverines shakey past. The drawing are superb. This comic is very violent and shows just some of the things wolverine has done and has had to put up with in his past, its no surprise hes not scared of any one! Be warned you will be compelled to get the rest in the series you will really want to know what happens to old wolvie!

Origins is a great series. I enjoyed the whole thing, despite costing a pretty penny by the end. This first volume sets everything up quite well, but the art style was absolutely not to my liking. Luckily, all subsequent volumes are vastly improved.
