Dollar Bin Reviews: X-Men Unlimited #15

I went dollar bin diving again the other day, and I must say I was quite excited about the comic I ended up finding: X-Men Unlimited #15. I've made no secret about my fondness for Maverick over the past year or so, and his solo series from the late 90's remains one of my favourite runs to this day. …

Review: Old Man Logan #3

  Do you know what the best comic Marvel are producing right now is? If you said Spider-Man, that's not the comic I'm thinking of (although I am glad you're enjoying it). No, the comic that has risen above everything else that Marvel have been releasing since Secret Wars ended is the one I'm reviewing today: Old Man Logan. Written by Jeff Lemire with …

Review: Old Man Logan #2

After Secret Wars dumped a future Wolverine into the current timeline (it's comics and it's easier to just accept that it happened then to try to figure out how and why. I have, because I still haven't read Secret Wars, and this series has been outstanding so far),  he realized that he had a unique chance to prevent the …

All-New Wolverine Or Old Man Logan?

In the past two or three months, we've had a two new solo comic book series launched featuring a clawed mutant; All-New Wolverine and Old Man Logan. Comparisons will inevitably be drawn between the two eventually, but as it stands, with only one issue of the latter out (as of this writing), despite my feelings on the rest …

A Familiar Face Returns In A New Series: Old Man Logan

Next month, another Wolverine will return in a solo series. Unlike the well received  All-New Wolverine, however, the new series will feature a much older version of Wolverine, Old Man Logan, when his eponymous series debuts late next month. I really enjoyed the original Old Man Logan story in 2008, and the Secret Wars tie  in was also solid. …

Wolverine Is Still Dead, Long Live The Wolverines?

Earlier this year, I wrote about how Wolverine should stay dead for some time. When I wrote the article, as big a fan of Wolverine as I am, I was starting to suffer what can only be called Wolverine Fatigue; there is, after all, only so many comics featuring the ol' canuckle head that a person can buy …

All New Wolverine Brings A New Wolverine

The second article posted to this blog was about why Wolverine should stay dead. Even though for decades he has been one of my favourite characters, he was seemingly everywhere for so long that people were beginning to suffer Wolverine  Burn Out. Although it was time for Wolverine to die for a little bit, the void left …

Maverick – An Under Appreciated 90’s Creation.

One of the first non-Wolverine comics I ever picked up was Maverick #4. Of course, the reason I picked it up was because Wolverine was on the front cover, so technically, the first non-Wolverine comic I picked up was Maverick #5.  As it turns out, I'd end up reading a lot about Maverick through the years …

Is There An Over Saturation of Comic Events?

If you haven't the stories listed below, there will be some spoilers. Consider this fair (and only) warning. House of M, Civil War, Siege, Fear Itself, Schism, Avengers vs X-Men, Original Sin, Axis, and now Secret Wars. This is a relatively small selection of the Event series Marvel alone has released since 2005. There are more …

Why Wolverine Should Stay Dead

Let me preface this by saying if it wasn't for Wolverine, my life would be so drastically different than it is now. This isn't hyperbole, this isn't an exaggeration, this is the truth. I brought my first comic in May of 1997. I was 12, and it was Wolverine Unleashed #8, a comic produced by …
