Nice compilation of Xmen shorts, centering around Wolverine and intersecting with Kitty Pryde, Piotr the Russian Colossus, Power Pack and the Canadian Alpha Flight team. Includes an old nugget penned back in the day--didn't know that Nightcrawler was part of the original uncanny Xmen!
I like the variety the collection of stories offer. Even the art is distinct from story to story. It is interesting to me how the various Wolverine graphic novels I have read take a different angle on him, but there is a lot of core history and characteristics that unite them.
I feel almost the same about this volume as I did about volume 1. The Canada story and the Russia story are both solid, all-ages fun. Nothing really stand-out, but entertaining enough. Like your least favorite episodes of your favorite TV show. But the other story--Wolverine babysitting four teenage girls while trying to watch a hockey game--manages to be really sweet and touching (in a teen-drama kind of way.)
