Wolverine #13 Review

Can Wolverine be Wolverine if he isn't un-killable?

The Good

The cover truly captures Wolverine like we have never seen him before, vulnerable. It is one of the most eye catching covers I have seen in a long time and the reason I picked this book up in the first place. The story itself is good, with more backstory on both the villains The Red Right Hand and the reason a particular member of that group holds a grudge against Wolverine.

The Not So Good

Wolverine's claws just didn't quite look right in this issue, as they appear more like pointy sticks instead of the sharp blades we are so familiar with. The story itself, while interesting, seems to be drawn out in order to create a much longer arc than is truly needed. Gunhawk is both a terrible character name and design. He is one villain that I hope never reemerges in future comics.

The Bottom Line

This is another solid issue of Wolverine that continues the Wolverine's Revenge arc. Those who have been following the book will go into this book shaking their heads yes, while those who haven't will be scratching theirs. As I said it has a fantastic cover, which may be reason alone to purchase this book if you collect comics for their art appeal and not their content. Pick this up if you love Wolverine, but skip it if you don't intend to go back and buy the previous issues.
