5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent if blood-splattered adventure story set in Tarantino County [joke], 25 Dec 2013
Mr. Mice Guy (London, England) - See all my reviews
This review is from: Wolverine Max Volume 2: Escape to L.A. (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.
