This review is from: Wolverine: Weapon X TPB (New Printing) (Graphic Novel Pb) (Paperback)
Well, what can I say that hasn't already been said? This is writing at it's best. I was recently reintroduced to the world of comic books and not to mention, Wolverine in general of whom I've always been quite a fan. I decided to start with this particular title based on the release of X-Men Origins: Wolverine. A film I never truly enjoyed but found watch-able. One thing that has bugged me over the years are production companies blatant disregard for continuity (i.e Constantine: Hellblazer, of which again, I am a huge fan). But then again, I'm here to review the graphic novel, not the defecation of a fantastic comic book character.
The story, amazing, to find out just HOW Logan came to get his iconic adamantium claws is a big feat but Barry Windsor-Smith is right up there grabbing the Wolverine by the claws (what, I like puns, okay?). While not for fans of purely X-Men nature, this GN is clearly for the die-hard Logan fans. The artwork is very blocky and colourful with thin line work, not too dissimilar to Frank Millers earlier epic, simply put, "Wolverine" and it works so well to project the environment of the story.
Like I said before, a must-have for any long-standing Logan fan or anyone interested in becoming one.
