4.0 out of 5 stars Wolverine Likeable. 26 April 2014
Format:Paperback
I read a library copy of the paperback.
There is an intelligence to this writing, the consequences of Wolverine no longer having a healing factor go much deeper than his enemies noticing that he is now...Killable.
Wolverine is having to change.
The art is classic Alan Davis but perhaps more beautiful than ever with modern colouring and his Mohawk Storm is a vision to behold.
I stopped liking Wolverine around the time he really started becoming popular, he became way too powerful and way too overused.
His healing factor was a perfect example of all I disliked about Logan, from an interesting trivia point – ‘he heals quite quickly’ the ability became ‘rip him into atoms and he’ll reform – he’s immortal!’
This series markets itself as a momentous change in Wolverine’s life-arc and I really really hope it is as he has been needing some progression – the ‘best at what he does’ label has become dull.
I’m not asking for him to mope into his beer every issue but acknowledging his mortality is a move to him maturing into an elder statesman in the Marvel Universe and putting away childish violence and boastings that have filled oh so many of his storylines.
Unfortunately here, there is an awful lot of beating him to an inch of his life – because you know, he can’t heal any more – and it became annoying, there is more to Wolverine than that aspect of his powers so I couldn’t award full marks.
Otherwise this is an interesting attempt to reinvigorate Wolverine and just about makes Wolverine Killable – likeable!

5.0 out of 5 stars A superb Wolverine story 21 April 2014
By No More Mr. Mice Guy TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
The story running through issues #7-13 of Wolverine Volume 5 is collected as Wolverine - Volume 2: Killable (Marvel Now) (Wolverine (Marvel) (Quality Paper)). This is a superb Wolverine story: the scripting by Paul Cornell reminded me, in a good way, of the Chris Claremont scripts of my teenage years, when the All New X-Men were just that, and the art by Alan Davis, while being `modern', and almost photo-real in places, still looks like his classic style.

THE SPOILER ZONE
The story itself, while concluding the adventure begun in the previous volume - Wolverine - Volume 1: Hunting Season (Marvel Now) (Wolverine (Marvel) (Quality Paper)) -, as a sentient virus from the Microverse invades the Earth, is really about Wolverine coming to terms with his new found vulnerability, as the virus has removed his healing factor. Mystique and Sabretooth draw Wolverine and Kitty Pride away to face all the unpleasant aspects of Wolverine's past life - as well as their pet Ninjas - leading to a sea-change in Logan's life that even brings the Watcher down to witness it: "The Wolverine is dead". Before all that however, there is time for a quick invasion of Wakanda, now ruled by the virus, to rescue Host, the only remaining threat to the virus's plans, leading to a parallel story running through the comic as SHIELD fights to save the world from the spread of the virus.

This really is a superb comic book, all new and all now, but still managing to feel like one of those classic stories of yesteryear, when we were all young and changing the world was possible.

2.0 out of 5 stars If you are looking for a story that blazes a new trail for our hero, look elsewhere... 12 Sep 2014
By N. Beitler - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Title: Wolverine Vol. 2: Killable
Publisher: Marvel
Writer: Paul Cornell
Artists: Mirco Perfederici, Alan Davis (pencils), Karl Kesel, Mark Farmer (inks), Andres Mossa, Matt Hollingsworth, Lee Loughridge (colors), Alan Davis, Mark Farmer, Matt Hollingsworth (covers)
Collects: Wolverine #7-13
Price: $19.99

Volume 1 of this new series was OK. It wasn’t great, but it wasn’t terrible, either. I can’t say I’ve ever been a big fan of Paul Cornell’s scripts, so I guess I wasn’t expecting any better than that to begin with. I had the same feeling about this second volume, and once again, my expectations were realized in the reading. While someone who isn’t a regular reader of Wolverine might enjoy this more than I, I just found it to be too commonplace. Cornell is trying a bit too hard, here, and really doesn’t do anything new. In fact, this book is stuffed to the brim with almost nothing but the most frequently used Wolverine tropes that we’ve all seen so many times. Here’s a short list of examples:

1. Wolverine loses his ability to heal.
2. Wolverine teams up with Kitty Pride.
3. Wolverine flirts with an X-Men teammate.
4. Wolverine has a short fight with another hero before eventually having a team-up.
5. Wolverine fights Mystique.
6. Wolverine fights Hand ninjas.
7. Wolverine fights Sabretooth.
8. Wolverine wields a sword.
9. Wolverine goes into a berserker fury.
10. Wolverine heads out into trouble on his own.

Yes, all of the above events happened in this one book. Of course, at the same time, Wolverine has to stop a world-ending threat at the same time as he is dealing with his personal problems. It was a tiresome read, for me, and I just really didn’t enjoy it. The whole time I was reading the book, I was thinking to myself” Really? We’re going to do that AGAIN?” Also, a lot of the dialogue just seemed a bit off or unnatural. Long story short, Cornell has an unbroken streak of delivering unsatisfying stories to me. It’s a shame, too, as I wanted to like this book, more, and I did enjoy Davis’ work on the art. If Cornell is staying on this book for another year, you can count me out. Jason Aaron had this title for years, and he managed to concoct some pretty stupid and uninteresting stories. Cornell isn’t faring a whole lot better, now that he’s got the writing reins. How much longer do I have to wait for some truly great Wolverine stories?

Overall, this isn’t a book that long-time Wolverine fans will enjoy, though newer readers might find it more interesting.

3.0 out of 5 stars What Nails him--A pine tree, NO AN-- An Alien virus! 27 Mar 2014
By Justin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Striped of his healing factor by an alien virus, Logan now MORTAL. Starts coming to terms with being human and he's seems to be scared. He has help from Beast, Kitty and Storm. The Art by Alan Davis is good, however I didn't really enjoy the story.
