Format: Hardcover
The opening of this story is written by a different writer to the rest and it shows. It opens with a little story about how a slightly sadistic joe average crosses paths with Wolverine, Howard chaykins art fits with it and it is a great little story.
Sadly what comes next is hokey super heroics with added cheese, and while this is all well and good it need flambouyant art to go with it. Between the poor choice of artist and overly cheesy story and pathetic plot devices it lost its appeal very quickly.

The opening chapter is a great little character driven tale that doesn't centre on wolverine, the art suits the story perfectly.
The rest of it also features the same art team, however it is completely wrong and looks terrible. Worse still is the story, it could have come over as cheesy super heroic fun but somehow it fails to be fun and leaves you shaking your head at the poor attempts at drama.

Interesting to a point 23 April 2008
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Wolverine dead? Marvel would never kill off one of their most iconic characters would they? On second thought, don't answer that. All kidding aside, The Death of Wolverine isn't exactly what it sounds like it is, but instead finds Logan close to meeting his maker. Written by Marc Guggenheim (The Flash, Blade), this storyarc flirts with the idea of what exactly happens to Logan's soul if and when he dies. Soon enough, an assassin named Shogun actually manages to kill Logan, seperating his soul from his body, and sending Logan on a mystical journey of sorts in the process. What Guggenheim manages to weave here is an interesting take on the idea of just how no matter how bad Logan gets hurt, his powers always manage to re-generate him. The supernatural ideas that Guggenheim presents should not work here, but for some reason, they do. Maybe its because Guggenheim picks up on plot threads from Mark Millar's past, smash storyarc on the series, or maybe it is because Guggenheim is in fact the only writer since Millar to actually "get" the character. Either way, the story works for what it is, and there is great use of Doctor Strange in a supporting role as well. The only real downside to The Death of Wolverine is the artwork from Guggenheim's Blade partner Howard Chaykin. An industry legend in his own right, Chaykin's artwork is just at times ugly to look at here. Sometimes it doesn't look too bad, but sometimes it looks downright atrocious. Art flaws aside, Guggenheim's story makes things interesting enough, as he manages to conjure up the best Wolverine story since...well, since he was last on the title during Civil War. All in all, The Death of Wolverine is definitely worth a look for Wolverine fans, just as long as they proceed with some caution.

Wolverine Dies. Unfortunately He Gets Better. 11 Jan. 2013
By William Kendall - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
A story that follows a critically wounded Wolverine and has a lot of supernatural elements to it, particularly where his healing factor is concerned. A lot of flashbacks to earlier times indicate that Wolverine once fought with the angel of death, and bested him. Villains with agendas all their own figure into the present day storylines, trying to destroy Logan once and for all. The story would benefit from a different artist; Howard Chaykin's style has never appealed to me, and there are times that people look downright hideous. If only the book actually delivered what it claimed: the actual death of Wolverine, never to be seen again, but we can't always get what we want, can we?

An average Wolverine story 1 Sept. 2008
By Ernest P. Bellavita - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A mystical story about the state of Wolverine's soul and how he is able to rejoin his body everytime it regenerates. I love Wolverine this one is an average story and takes Wolverine to the mystical realm a place you wouldn't expect him to ever be. It's different I'll give them that.
