Charlie Huston, when writing sci-fi or fantasy, churns out incredibly dated or incredibly boring stories that seem like they were pilfered from forgotten 80's paperbacks. (However, when he writes straight pulp/hardboiled crime, he's a goddamn genius). What he does to Wolverine really is no exception. It becomes clear that this is a dated cyberpunk story for Wolverine and Huston has misplaced his sense of direction for the character completely. What we get are some seriously wacky characters and ...more

Two words: sucked ass.

While I have enjoyed Ryp's art in some of his past work, especially horror, this seemed a little loose and not as detail oriented as I would have liked. When you can't tell the difference between Dazzler and Emma Frost, something is wrong. The action scenes look very stiff -- the artist doesn't get cooking until the second half of issue 3. And Dazzler's leather x-men costume has her starburst insignia on her crotch -- like, look at me, my vagina can turn sound into light,

What the Hell did I just read? This was awful! Terrible dialog, bad writing! The art was the only real saving grace! Why are there so many bad Wolverine stories and they all seem to revolve around messing up his powers or making more vulnerable?
The techno space pirates (and their robot bird) that showed up in this were terrible characters that stuck around way too long. All I kept thinking was "WOLVERINE IN SPACE!!!! Now in 3D with Smell-a-vision!"
Nuff said!

Well it started off with some incredibly cringe-worthy dialogue between Cyclops, Beast and Emma Frost. The dialogue didn't get much better. It seemed a bit random with things just thrown together, but the ending was alright. The flashback was nice and included an appearance by a famous super-villain. The artwork was gorgeous and was really the high point.

All of the good work done in 'Contagion' is really undermined with an extremely dull and uninteresting first half of the novel. Two new characters appear who I couldn't wait to be rid of. The story ends decently however and if you can get through the first half of the book, you can find a decent story in there.

Obnoxiously and unnecessarily oversexualised every character. Not worth your time or money.

I'm such a huge Wolverine fan that I never thought I'd read a Wolverine story that would rank this low. I just did not care for this one. It was too wordy, it dragged, and it was confusing. The only thing that kept this from being 1 star was the art, as Ryp's art was really good, and his women are HOT. Although Wolverine and Dazzler? Where'd THAT come from?

I don't even want to get into the storyline because it was too confusing for me to even try to explain. I liked Charlie Huston on Moon Knight

Just an awful, awful mess. One of the worst comic books I have ever read, perhaps THE worst. The script was all over the place, half the time I had no idea what was going on. Dialogue was appalling, the Logan in this book is not the Logan we know and love, and all the other characters are just a waste of page space.
The art is no better. 50% decent amateur/ 50% very poor mans Steve Dillon. You might just about get away with it in an old Vertigo book, but not here. A mess, all over the place. I ha

Mr Huston takes his torture of Wolverine to greater levels. As always, our scruffy hero takes it all in stride. Of course. Pain is an old friend with whom he shall lie down happily upon the time of his deathbed. Our author also tosses in a dynamically interesting duo who, as an aside to respectively being an alien shapeshifter and a nanotech substrate, happen to be lovers. They assist Wolverine in his latest bout with crazy ass diseases.

Dark desires are fulfilled by a motley band of ugly consci

Bellina questa run di Wolverine, anche se devo dire che la seconda parte è più noiosa del primo libro. I punti di forza sono, i disegni zeppi di dettagli come nel primo capitolo e l'avvento degli x-men che accorreranno in questo finale per aiutare Logan. Nel complesso posso dire che non mi sono pentito dell'acquisto di questo albo, che completa una bella saga che oltre alla violenza gratuita regala momenti introspettivi di Wolverine, le sue riflessioni sul suo potere e sulla umanità che crede di ...more

Más violencia gratuita y toneladas de entrañas y pus y demás deposiciones en el marco de una historia que es bastante triste (y por momentos patética) y que, pese a algunos diálogos algo forzados y a jugar con el límite del verosímil en varias partes, nunca deja de entretener. Y otro punto no menor de esta saga es que, al parecer, verdaderamente influyó en el devenir de la vida del pobre Wolverine, ya que "La muerte de..." es una consecuencia de cómo termina al final de "El mejor en lo que ...more

Accidentally picked up the second rather than the first volume. That didn't matter though and the story was easily accessible. Truly, not a comic for the kids...gross, gross, gross...and pretty awesome. Highlights: spacemen. Low points: any time the other X-men show up.

Because what better to read when you're feeling under the weather yourself than a book replete with lovingly-detailed scenes of technonecrotic virus infection and other disease-based horridness, plus a fair amount of good old-fashioned gore?

The art was pretty rough sometimes but no where near as rough as putting the story together. Best part was Dazzler....
