Users who pulled this comic:


  1. not necessarily related to this comic, but I think that Alan Davis draws the most beautiful women in all of comics. Hopefully Wolverine gets with the ladies in this

  2. Greg land… almost had a heart attack when I saw that one

  3. Hrmmm, I’ve never been much taken with Wolverine’s solo books, but I’ve been hoping to see Cornell come back to the MU, and I love Davis’s… if only they were doing a Captain Britian: MI13… I guess I’ll give this a go…

  4. This is going to be interesting because when I think ‘gruff, badass’ Wolverine I normally don’t think of ‘silly, tongue in cheek’ Paul Cornell. Probably one of the oddest pairings ever for a writer and character.

  5. Does Wolverine even need a solo series anymore? He’s such a team player in so many other books that I don’t even think of him as the loner anti-hero anymore.

    And I love Paul Cornell and Alan Davis, but I’m kind of baffled as to what they’re going to be doing here. Maybe they’ll surprise us, but a soft-focus Wolverine book doesn’t seem very essential in this day and age. But come to think of it, Jason Aaron couldn’t really do much with his grizzled take on Wolverine’s solo book, so maybe it really is time to put this particular title to bed for a while.

    Either way, it’s a $4 Marvel book, so I’ll be leaving it on the shelf. I am curious, however, to hear what the masses have to say come Wednesday.

    • Read like a $2 or so book, to me. Went by much too quickly.

      Trade wait, and get the TPB at a discount.

      (The Davis art is – as always – top-notch.)

  6. God I hope this is better than savage wolverine

  7. The “in your face” cover by Davis is awesome!

  8. Really?!? This book is starting again!!!? Why can’t they just announce the new creative team and go from there? I know #1’s pull in more sales, etc…..but still. I’m out.

  9. I hope Cornell addresses the changes Gillen pulled in JiM

  10. What a strange book.

    It opens in the middle of the action for one thing. But Cornell’s take on Wolverine is so different from what I’ve seen over the last couple of years. He isn’t gruff or violent at all. He’s actually more noble and snarky than anything else. I quite like it actually and love it this isn’t going to be a usual ‘slash and dash’ Wolverine series. The art by Alan Davis is, of course, fantastic and there was some great visuals int his issue. (Mainly with the raygun zapping people ala ‘Mars Attacks!’) I was a bit unsure about this series when I put it in my pullbin but this issue definitely makes me wanna continue this.


  11. I do loves me some Alan Davis but the story didn’t blow me away. Not terrible though.

  12. Paul is building quite the mystery here. He ‘s earned much respect so far from me for giving us a different flavor of Wolverine right now, hopefully he keeps the tone throughout the book.

    Alan Davis rocked every single panel in this! He is a strong example of why industry veterans should be headlining books and still receiving consistent work..

  13. Alan Davis art alone has got me hooked for the first arc of this.

  14. Davis’s art is consistently good, but there was nothing to this story to make me want to read it on a regular basis. No character development, no new take on the character…just a new problem of the week. No new characters. I found it pretty bland…

  15. Davis and Farmer will keep me coming back until it is a little clearer where Cornell will go with this title.
