4.0 out of 5 stars Read it, bub, 27 Aug 2011
This review is from: Wolverine Weapon X Volume 1: Adamantium Men TPB (Graphic Novel Pb) (Paperback)
A new line of super soldiers made with the same specs as Wolverine has appeared with a few new additions, mainly lightsaber-like claws, and seem intent on replacing the current US army and waging unrelenting war on the rest of the world. The only one to stop them is of course everyone's favourite hairy Canuck, Wolverine himself. Snikt.

Jason Aaron brings his blend of brutal action and fast paced storytelling to this character and captures his essence completely and perfectly. Thankfully there's no backstory so those who are familiar with the character, like me, can enjoy a new story straight from the word go. Aaron takes Wolverine into the jungles of South America and we get a sort of Predator-esque story as Logan hunts down these new super soldiers one by one.

The first book ends on a pretty good cliffhanger as the reader finds out who's behind releasing the specs for Weapon X to a new organisation and sets the stage for Vol 2 nicely.

There's also a two-shot short included which addresses Wolverine's large amount of appearances in several comics recently called "A Mile in My Moccasins" which was very funny, done in a style with a panel a day and a long conversation with Spidey in a bar.

Ron Garney's art is rough and sketchlike as his artwork always is but suits the rough-hewn character well.

It's enjoyable to read because Wolverine's in the hands of a capable writer who understands the character. All in all, a promising first volume in what's sure to be an excellent series. Looking forward to Volume 2!
