3.0 stars. Another solid Wolverine story, this one featuring a team up with the "other" summers brother, Havok.
crap writing, but brilliant art, so it goes in the middle
Okay, this had a wild story lol The storyline is a little bizarre and silly, but the artwork is amazing. I recommend this basically for the beautiful watercolors. It's a visually stunning series.
Reprints Havok & Wolverine: Meltdown #1-4 (March 1989-October 1989). Dr. Neutron and General Meltdown are playing a dangerous game. They want to harness the power of a nuclear meltdown like Chernobyl and they don’t care who gets hurt in the process. With their eyes on Havok of the X-Men, the two must first find a way to get rid of Wolverine who could create a foil to their plans. With a girl named Scarlett at their bidding, Meltdown and Neutron are about to take on two of the X-Men’s most da ...more
En los correos de los lectores que se publicaron a principios de los años noventa en España se decía casi siempre lo mismo sobre esta serie limitada: en nuestro país no estaba asegurada su publicación porque a los "jefes" de Forum les preocupada su "dibujo raro". Lo que debería haberles preocupado es su historia, porque lo otro es una maravilla realizada en acuarela a cuatro manos por los ilustradores Jon J. Muth y Kent Williams, un trabajo a un mismo tiempo realista (ese Alex Summers 'cool' ins ...more
Had hoped for more from Walter Simonson, after his awesome Thor run...this story is just dated 80s Cold War Nuclear paranoia stuff.
Wolverine and Havok are on holiday in Mexico...which already is strange as bejesus. Also, what on Earth has those 2 together? Hatred for Scott? Who knows...there's a few cool spots, the art is mostly watercolour style, which makes some very cool stuff and also some stuff is far too dark (literally) to see.

Not all that important, though I would be interested to see th
I have to say first off that this was a very interesting story featuring Wolverine and Havok of the X-men. Rendered in mixed media, as it was done sometimes in watercolour, charcoal, acrylics, and pencil. The artwork alone makes this book worth picking up, as it's a very expressively done. I was surprised by the ending which makes it seem like the main villian who controlled all of "the pieces" would be back for another issue in the Marvel universe.
Una historia que no está a la par del arte soberbio.

Absolutely gorgeous book. This is the book that got me loving Wolverine (long before Hugh Jackman LOL - though he really sealed the deal :-). Sadly, I never found another X-Men to equal the beauty of this one.
I think I'll agree with most people on here. The story is solid, if not amazing; unfortunately set in a specific historical period. But the art is absolutely gorgeous and unique. Awesome.
This comic is so great! The art is all done in Watercolours and just looks stunning, or it did, I havent looked at it in a long time.

The story had its moments, but it was kind of silly, and the Dr. Neutron art was weird.
Some of the Havok art was interesting.
Story, meh. Art, great.
