2.0 out of 5 stars Vengeance shall be etc.,... 18 Nov 2011
By Noel TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover
This is the final part of the story cycle that began with "Wolverine Goes to Hell" and "Wolverine Vs. The X-Men" where Logan faces the Red Right Hand for the final time and has his revenge... or does he?

I think Jason Aaron's work is fantastic but this run of "Wolverine" (he does another strain called "Weapon X" which is vastly superior) is far from his best work. "Hell" was so so and mostly had Logan fighting an unlimited number of bad guys, "Vs" was mostly the same thing but with X-Men, and "Revenge" is again a series of opponents fighting Logan and Logan inevitably taking them down.

The Red Right Hand are a pitiful group of villains and the reveal at the end that's supposed to be their ultimate revenge on him is weak mostly because we don't know the characters Logan is supposed to have killed. Their implied relationship is never real. The book does show the consequences of Wolverine's long and bloody life on the survivors of his victims or collateral damage, but Logan has always been an ambiguous hero at the best of times.

Mostly it's just a series of D-list bad guys being killed by Logan and is no great shakes as a story. Aaron is a better writer than this and this run on Wolverine is one of his weakest efforts. For better reads try "Weapon X" or Aaron's own series "Scalped".

4.0 out of 5 stars What he does best isn't necessarily for the best 4 July 2013
By Shel
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I felt like I had to write a review to balance out reviews for this title as I feel Jason Aaron's run of Wolverine has taken a bit of a battering critically and to just focus on the old comic book trope of "who" Wolverine fights against in this book (which collects Wolverine 10-16) is missing the bigger picture that Aaron is trying to tell which is "why"?

The actual public aftermath of superhero conflict is rarely told in comics (Kurt Busiek's Marvels being one notable exception) which is what Aaron chooses to focus on here. The Red Right Hand is indeed a pitiful group of individuals and yes we don't know these people Logan has (often unintentionally) killed but that is the point; we're on this ride with Wolverine, this realisation that there are consequences to these so called heroes' (a very loose term when applied to Wolverine) actions that they don't consider or brush off. These nobodies are people that have had their lives forever changed from one short, fleeting meeting with Logan and there eventually comes a point when the amount of individuals become so large they become something more than collateral damage, especially when you've been alive as long as Logan.

It's good that there are books out there that depict Wolverine in this grey area as there are way too many modern Marvel comics post-Hugh Jackman that gloss over the fact Logan is far from a clean cut, role model and team leader that he is shown as.

An arc focusing on an individual character like this works so much more than something like the Civil War event which quickly escalated into panels upon panels of superheroes fighting and missed the original premise of the public impact.

Admittedly the final issue does come across as over-sentimental however, the pay-off of Wolverine [again] coming to the conclusion that he cannot simply run from what does best, consequences be damned, makes this worth the read.

4.0 out of 5 stars An Unexpected Ending 7 Jun 2013
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Having read the reviews I was somewhat dubious on whether I would enjoy the story line. This book is the Ending to Wolverine Goes to Hell and Wolverine vs the Xmen. The plot is discussed on the earlier thread and I would agree that at times the art work is a bit inconsistent.

However, on the whole I loved it....I thought the reveal was brilliant and I just didn't see it coming. In fact I had to flick back a few pages and re-read it....with this in mind I would say its a definite read even if perhaps at times you'll find yourself thinking "really?"

5.0 out of 5 stars Aaron's Masterpiece Continues; INCORRECT AMAZON DESCRIPTION 29 Oct 2011
By Joseph Born - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
INCORRECT AMAZON DESCRIPTION; This hardcover collects Wolverine 10 through 16. Not 10 through 14 as listed.
Jason Aaron knows Wolverine, better than Wolverine himself does. His run on Wolverine's solo title has been nothing short of epic. We have seen Wolverine endure Hell itself and fight his fellow X-Men. Now we see Wolverine pull back the curtain and reveal the masterminds...
Spoilers Ahead! After forcing Mystique to reveal the organization behind Logan's exile to Hell and murdering her, he sets his sights on the Red Right Hand. Logan quickly tracks down their base of operations and gets to work on getting his revenge. You'll see him fight assassin's and mercenaries. The Red Right Hand is not who you'll expect them to be. I even found myself surprised to be sympathetic to their reasons for putting Logan through so much Hell. (Pardon the pun) Their is a massive plot twist that truly caught me off guard. I had to turn the page back to make sure I hadn't missed anything.
The art in this collection is good. Sometimes faces look weird, but not too often. Dialogue is great, there are some "Wolverine moments" and while the leader of the Red Right Hand can give some long winded lines, it doesn't ruin the atmosphere.
Overall, this is another excellent entry into Aaron's epic Wolverine run. I'll say what I said about the previous volume, Wolverine: Wolverine vs. the X-Men, this is what comics strive to achieve. The plot kept me turning pages. And this collection is a fantastic value. 7 issues for $25.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gut wrenching 15 Dec 2011
By N. Durham - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Jason Aaron has really made a name for himself over the past couple years. With runs on Ghost Rider and PunisherMAX, as well as his own series Scalped for Vertigo, Aaron has quickly become one of the top writers in all of comics. His time on Wolverine has been no different either, proving to be one of the best writers to ever tackle Marvel's mutant posterboy. This storyarc, Wolverine's Revenge, picks up where Wolverine Goes to Hell left off, as Wolvie finds himself taking on the mysterious group known as the Red Right Hand, and discovering how his past intertwines with them, leading up to an ultimate gut wrencher of a conclusion. The shocking storyline combined with the excellent artwork here really make this arc a winner, and further cement the fact that Jason Aaron is one of the absolute best writers in the industry today. All in all, this is the best Wolverine has been in a while, and it deserves your time and attention.

5.0 out of 5 stars Revenge Devouring Revenge and a Little Redemption 6 Nov 2011
By S. H. Wells - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Collects Wolverine #10-16 (2010)

If you haven't picked up any of the current run of Wolverine under the fantastic writing of Jason Aaron, now is the time to see the Wolverine at his grimmest, most fatalistic, and most human.

Wolverine's soul has been sent to hell, and the X-men fought Wolvie's demon possessed body to a stand still. In the issues collected here Wolverine sets out to get revenge on the mysterious Red Right Hand group that has caused him so much grief lately. However Wolverine's revenge is part of the Red Right Hand's own plot for vengeance. And without giving too much away the Red Right Hand's plot is consumed by Daken's own daddy issues.

Issues 10-14 are a brutal roller coaster of unfolding revenge plots. Under a lesser writer's direction these plots could have been soap opera-esque. However, Aaron's writing makes these issues open up like an Alfred Hitchcock plot at it's best. These issues work brilliantly and were a lot of fun to read.

Issues 15-16 offer a story of penance and ultimately of redemption. And if you thought wolverine was good at killing: you have to see how good he is at punishing himself. These issues featured a great selection of Wolverine's friends summing up in a couple sentences who Wolverine is. I laughed a lot at Namor and Emma's comments.

In addition to shifting plots, issues 15-16 also change artists. Issues 10-14 are penciled by Renato Guedes. This is phenomenal, dark, detailed work. You can really look in the characters' eyes and read pain and story in the lines and shadows. Goran Sudzuka provided the art for issues 15 and 16. It is a bit of a jarring shift: Sudzuka's art is more minimalist compared to Guedes. But both artists bring a lot of talent with them. I am glad to see these issues crafted so well.

For long-time x-fans there are plenty of goodies between these covers. I can recommend this graphic novel without reservation.
