    The Comicbook Dispatch

    WOLVERINE #17 was a clever, crime enriched, mystery thriller with future twists and turns woven into the foundation of the story. However, to fans invested since Percy’s WOLVERINE began, the kinks seem pretty straightforward yet still fun and entertaining.

    Wolverine #17 works so well because of how the tone builds throughout. It’s that black ops vibe, that feeling that it’s all going to fall apart because someone isn’t who they seem to be, makes the whole thing work so well. Medina’s art works, but Kubert is tough to come after. It all works so very well, though.

    Wolverine #17 is just about everything you could ask for from a solo issue about Logan. We’ve got the X-Force running another covert mission to save Krakoa, all while one of Logan’s connections in the CIA winds up on the run while investigating something for him. This could get really fun.

    Wolverine #17 mixes the hard edge of being a detective, with the bloody nature of covert-ops, and even some hilarious karaoke too. It’s a good time up and down, wrapped up in a clever way that adds a different context to the entire issue.

    Wolverine #17 sees the return of two old friends, though one might not be what it seems, and reminds readers there is still a world outside of Krakoa.

    The Story: Percy crafts a story with some great intrigue and interesting character moments. The story is engaging, but its slow pacing is an issue. I liked both parts of the story a lot, but they felt like they were competing with each other rather than flowing together in a way that was compelling as a reader. I like the nods to the bigger conspiracy at play and the mystery so I continue to be interested in the story itself. I just wish it didn’t take so long to get to the good parts.

    The Art: Medina delivers some great art in the issue. There are some great character moments and the action is intense and visually engaging.
