I really enjoyed this, though it was completely over the top and did get a tad repetitive by story’s end. Tie up was a little easy too.
That aside, this was destruction on an epic scale, with Wolverine back to his nasty self doing what he does best. Millar is not the most subtle of writers, but he does deliver entertainment in spades, which he does here.
Romita’s art suits the script perfectly, huge panels and layouts giving it an action movie feel. Loved his Wolverine, captured his essence well.
Grim and gritty, but epic.

This a great, bloody, violent romp. Wolverine gets used as a puppet by Hydra and then goes after the seemingly unstoppable foe behind it. The body count is astronomical. You do get a sense of the toll it takes on Wolverine and the sheer weight of baggage he carries around with him, but essentially, this is a fast paced actioner with great art by Romita Jr, and Millar having a great time truly putting our hero through the wars. Don't expect anything weighty though- this is just an very enjoyable switch-your-brain-off ride.

Classic Marvel story featuring Wolverine and Elektra as the main protagonists. Nice artwork and an involving plot.

As the title says this is a great Wolverine graphic novel, it is very well paced. There is rarely a dull moment throughout and the artwork is also very good.

The entire ARC (several issues/comics) in one book.

Excellent for any harcore fan of the Wolverine.
I recommend reading weapon x 1st.

I loved this story so much I bought it twice (I left my first copy on a flight to Barcelona...don't ask!).
Anyhoo, Logan takes on S.H.I.E.L.D., what more do you need to know? New character established in the arc, and he is a bad-a$$!

This book collects the 13 issue run Mark Millar did with John Romita Jnr on Wolverine a few years ago. Wolverine is captured and brainwashed by a terrorist organisation, part ninja, part Nazi, called Hydra led by an undying evil witch and a terrifying assassin called the Gorgon. With Wolverine on their side, they begin picking off heroes and villains to turn them to their cause of complete destruction of the world. It's not a spoiler to say Wolvey overcomes the brainwashing eventually and becomes a good guy once again and the second book has him squaring off against Hydra, the Gorgon, and a powerful hero turned evil.

The series is fast paced and exciting with Wolverine hunting down heroes, breaking into SHIELD HQ the Triskelion, and creating havoc wherever he goes. The Gorgon is a fantastically spooky villain. He looks manga-esque and is Japanese in origin though you don't find out exactly how he came to be until the second book. He's truly scary though and his final battle with Wolverine is very Greek mythology-like.

I like John Romita Jnr's artwork sometimes, here it's adequate but nothing that you're going to go crazy over. At times he makes the heroes look a bit too cartoonish which is a bit off-putting.

Millar's storytelling and hyper-violence are the stars of the show here. His writing makes reading the book that much better and interesting than the average comic book writer could manage.

The 13th issue, a standalone one-shot comic, has Wolverine as a POW in a WW2 concentration camp, driving Nazi officers to insanity with his healing factor. He has no dialogue but this was still a haunting issue that closes out a fantastic volume memorably.

I loved reading this book, both as a fan of Wolverine and as a fan of Mark Millar, and thought Millar and co. did a great job rendering a brilliant character in an epic story. Wonderful read, highly recommended to all fans of superhero comics.
