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!
Jason Aaron did some great work with get mystique and some of the shorter stories that followed and here he shows it wasn't a fluke.
The story follows the weapon X projects development in using wolverine as a template for super soldiers, a whole squad with wolverine like powers and laser claws. If one is a match for wolverine how can he hope to bring down a whole squad of them?
The story is well paced and mixes intrigue with some great OTT action, all kept inline with some solid character work. Garneys art is a little rough and sketchy and it suits the story perfectly.

The pacing is fast with just enough pause for story, the art and design is fantastic and Aaron's dialogue is near flawless.
To top it off the bonus mini-arc at the end is an absolute blast and offers a great insight into the character.
If you're a fan of Wolverine this is not to be missed.
