So Wolverine Goes to Hell is a very surprising good read but the demons looked a little cartoony but that's minor. Wolverine versus the X-Men is the continuation of Goes to Hell and the artwork is ok but I'm not used to the artist. To get the ending of the Wolverine Goes to Hell story arc check out Wolverine: Wolverine's Revenge.
Can't wait to get my hand on volume 4 and the Wolverine and the X-men Omnibus. If you are a fan of wolverine you have to get this.
Wow. The first two complete collections of Aaron's run on Wolverine have been great. This volume kicks it up another level and soars above the previous two, not to put them down as they are still great.
This collection kicks off with the six issue Astonishing Spider-Man And Wolverine series. This concept seems like a no-brainer as DC has been pairing up their two most popular characters in series limited and ongoing for decades with great success. Why should not Marvel? Aaron actually touches on why not as he gets to the heart of these characters in a bizarre time traveling story, where both our costumed heroes keep waking up in different periods of Earth's history. The reason why these two do not get paired up to often is they cannot stand each other! Aaron shows this off to great effect as he nails both of these characters perfectly and Wolvie was no surprise as he has been rocking with him for years now but the web-head was a pleasant surprise as he is quite a different character. They both are heroes and realize it at the right time and it was very fun and touching to watch moments when these two actually connected. The reason behind everything is pretty good and brings back a lesser used villain in Marvel's pantheon but Aaron tries to introduce some newer ones that just are not that memorable. Adam Kubert handles illustrating duties and does some of the finest work I have seen from him with his sharp line work and great ability to portray characters distinctively and crazy sci-fi madness. And he is perhaps the best at doing disgruntled Logan closeups.
The next story arc is the one shot Wolverine: Road To Hell #1 and issues 1-5 of Wolverine. It is entitled Wolverine Goes To Hell and it delivers. The why he was sent there and the main who it seems will be answered in the next and last volume of Aaron's run but a lot is put on the table and it is a wild ride. Wow, I cannot say much for this story except Jason Aaron really loves to torture Wolverine and if you ever wanted to see Logan be the biggest B. A. he ever has you will see it in this story arc. Yikes. Renato Guedes brings his beautiful and detailed line work to such an amazing and disturbing world that it is just amazing what he does as an illustrator here.
Issues 6-9 deal with the after math of Logan's "trip" and the X-Men coming in to contain Wolverine's little identity crisis that unfolds as a result. It is pretty cool seeing the various X-Men of the "Utopia Island era" dealing with Wolverine in his altered state and Aaron shows off how he really does know the different and diverse members of the X-Men. Daniel Acuna does illustrating and coloring here in his expressive and beautiful retro looking style.
Issue 5.1 closes out the volume leaving readers, like me, desperately anticipating the next and final volume in which Aaron will reveal who is behind sending Wolvie to Hell and why. This issue is kind of a stand alone as Logan's girlfriend and friends try throwing him a surprise birthday party, which does not go according to plan. Jefte Palo does the illustrations in a very sketchy style which is actually fitting to Logan's personality. It is also worth mentioning that very fine artist Jae Lee does the covers for the entire Wolverine series in his surrealist awesomeness style.
