    Wolverine #28 is fantastic, and thats all there is to it. Percy has excelled in this new story, really capturing the pain and despair of Wolverine and the monstrousness of Beast. Ryp and DArmata do an awesome job on the art. Without their terrific work, this chapter wouldnt hit nearly as hard. Wolverine has always been good, but this issue is a real killer.

    Beast's ongoing scheme with Wolverine continues as we see events from Logan's animalistic perspective. It's quite the departure from his usual inner monologuing, but its simplistic language mixed with horrifying imagery actually makes Wolverine sympathetic on an even deeper level. He's always had regrets, but now his control is in the hands of someone else. Special note must be made of Juan Jose Ryp's artwork, which absolutely shines in the issue's goriest scenes. This puts plenty of current horror comics to absolute shame.

    ‘Wolverine’ takes a slightly different approach in walking down a heavily traveled road, mostly spinning its proverbial wheels before slightly advancing the overall plotline. The approaching new year could bring something far less rerun-like for the clawed mutant, but all signs are pointing towards the outlook not being good.

    This issue really does just leave me with a lot of questions and I’m looking forward to getting answers. For now, what we know is that Wolverine is in the pit and the pressure is on Beast.

About the Author: Benjamin Percy

Benjamin Percy is an American author of novels and short stories, essayist, comic book writer, and screenwriter.


Benjamin Percy has published four novels, The Dark Net, The Dead Lands, Red Moon, and The Wilding, as well as two books of short fiction: Refresh, Refresh and The Language of Elk. In 2016, he published his first book of non-fiction, a collection of essays on writing and genre fiction: Thrill Me.

Percy’s first work for DC Comics was writing Detective Comics #35 – 36 in 2014, which was part of the company’s New 52 branding. He eventually took over as writer on the company’s Green Arrow series, beginning with issue 41, and continuing until issue 52, when that series was cancelled in preparation for DC’s 2016 DC Rebirth initiative, which involved restarting its monthly titles with new #1 issues. Percy would continue as writer on Green Arrow with its new series in 2016, beginning with the one-shot Green Arrow: Rebirth, which sold over 90,000 copies when it was released in May 2016. It was the highest-selling issue with Green Arrow as the main character in recent comics history, and received a second-printing. In comparison, the final issues of the previous Green Arrow series sold between 21,000 and 22,000 copies, the last Green Arrow #1, from the New 52 launch, sold 55,512 copies, and Kevin Smith‘s Green Arrow #1 from 2001 sold 85,046 copies.

From November 2019 Percy is the main writer of X-Force series and from February 2020 of Wolverine series for Marvel Comics.
