‘Contagion, Part One: Impulsion & Whim,’ Part 1 of 6.

When Wolverine faces a problem of the villainous kind there’s a good chance that he’ll use his Adamantium claws to whip up a lethal solution to it. What happens, though, when he faces an opponent who becomes a much bigger problem if he’s killed? Enter: Contagion, a bold new addition to Wolverine’s rogue’s gallery. But first, Logan must contend with Contagion’s defenders, the aptly named crew known as the Unkillables.

Users who pulled this comic:


  1. Hmm…this is either going to be alot of fun or a terrible trainwreck, with very little middle ground.

  2. Art in the preview seemed pretty cool, although i believe this will be a mega trainwreck.

  3. Wolverine Kills Shit #1

  4. Weird. Just realized that the guy that wrote Already Dead is writing this. Might actually have to pick it up now… hrm.

  5. The new villains involved seem a bit boring. (Unkillables? Really?)

    But I might buy this solely based on Juan Jose Ryp. If there is anyone that can make a bloody Wolverine comic it would be him.

  6. Ryp does some sick stuff. Sick meaning both awesome and disturbing. Anyone could be writing it and I’d still buy it just for the art.

  7. I can’t believe how few people gave pulled this. It’s a new Wolverine #1, but barely any pulls. Is Wolverine mania finally over?

  8. @butchcassidy – god i f’m hope so.

  9. @comicBOOKchris  I would gladly buy a book called that.

  10. @Noto  For all intents and purposes, that IS the title of this book.

  11. I love Ryp, didn’t love Huston on Moon Knight, and hate hate hate 3.99.  So I’ll probably pass unless it blows me away in the store.

  12. Wow, Marvel just made an Avatar comic! I hope that William Christensen was paid a fat licensing fee for this issue. This was a weird story, and while Huston gets Wolverine’s speech more or less right, the story made little sense — it was pretty much splattery.

  13. The beginning was classic Ryp.  

    “Don’t you have a team or something?” “Babe, I got too many teams.”  That was good, but don’t know about the hair cutting stuff and the dancing either.

  14. Lol @Franktiger – that’s pretty much what I was about to post. The opening was great, but the dancing around & cutting girls hair, seemed like they were deliberately trying to piss Wolvie fans off.

  15. @WadeWilson  Of course Wolvie would be a horrible dancer!

  16. Either make this a MAX book and have actual profanity or drop all the #### bullshit. It was impossible to figure out what bad words the were actually supposed to be saying. It’s almost like they planned this as a MAX book but got cold feet and turned it into a regular book with a parental advisory. As has already been said, the dancing and haircutting was stupid, along with Wolverine talking about Simon Cowell, the villain whose identity they spend 3 pages hiding, only to reveal a few pages later in a super anticlimactic way, but the biggest problem was that this was one big convoluted, confusing mess.

  17. This wasn’t the fun bloodbath orgy that many people assumed it would be, or even the gritty yet realistic view of the uglier aspects of Logan’s life. This was just…dumb.

    One can argue that the point of this book is violence over substance. That can be fun in its own way at times. But when you only have 2 vague pages of it, can you really say that this is what the book is aiming for?

    So the book is more story based, which would make a story good in the traditional sense. It’s too bad that it’s off to the worst start than any comic I’ve read in awhile.

    I can buy silly drunk Logan, since he’s a pretty sociable guy. Those scenes weren’t bad, just silly. That mutant fighting scene, however, had one cringe worthy line after another. And all those villain scenes were a chore to get through, way too much faux-intriguing dialog. This whole thing was the comic equivalent of Surf Nazis Must Die. Worst comic I’ve read in awhile. Not even unintentionally hilarious like Rise Of Arsenal 3.

  18. …and yet our community still gives this a star-rating that would round up to 3 – “Good”!

  19. Yeah, but only by a tenth of a point, I think that’s telling enough.

  20. This was not very good at all and I love Wolverine and Ryp’s art. This just didn’t make sense, the story was very clunky feeling…I’m upset

  21. Well I gave this a 3/5 because of the art. The writing was just terrible. Just…wow.
