    Long-form stories told within the space of monthly releasing comic books can be a tough situation. There is always the chance that along the way the reader’s attention may be lost or waver, especially if it feels like there might be a deviation or road bump while traveling in the direction of a conclusion to whatever the eventual destination might be. There has been a story being told by Benjamin Percy that has weaved across both Wolverine and X-Force since both titles began all the way back in 2019. It’s a story that was mostly told in X-Force but has dipped into Logan’s title at times, especially in the last handful of issues where the story has dominated. (...) I do think that there should have been just a slight difference made to the narration captions of Beast and Logan as they are exactly alike, and it took a moment for my mind to click that we were back to Logan narrating. Just a minor thing really as once you read the words it’s pretty clear who is talking but at the moment it just caused a slight pause. (...) A whole ton of things that were seeded all the way back in 2019 begin to bear fruit as ‘Wolverine’ #31 begins a major arc pitting Logan and X-Force against their former boss, Beast. A ton of slick action, lives on the line, and far too many Beasts fill these pages breathing some life into the series after a slower few months.

    Wolverine #31 kicks off a Beast vs. Logan showdown you won't want to miss. Everyone's favorite blue mutant genius has gone off the rails with only more evil and immoral actions ahead of him, and he must be stopped. Given the stakes and how powerful Beast seems to be, there may be only one mutant left who can do it. He's got six claws, and he's all out of patience.

    Overall, this issue had great pacing and some incredible imagery. This arc is looking like it is a great place to jump back in for new or returning readers. From what Wolverine #31 showed readers, anything could happen moving forward and it is clear that its going to be a blast to see.

    Benjamin Percy has a style of writing perfect for a Wolverine book. This book has thrived under the able hand of Percy and issue 31 is aided even more by a clear conflict and the stellar art of Juan Jose Ryp. (...) This book is interesting, clear, has a great conflict that is ramping up in new ways. The art is dynamic without ever being confusing. This arc takes us down a new path against Beast, but it is nice to have a clear concise enemy and hero in an X-book.

    Beast has taken the first steps in what appears to be his master plan, dubbed "Weapons of X." He's created a group of clones of himself, fired the X-Force and moved their base (which now looks like a plant-based mech with a giant skull for a head) to the bottom of the ocean. And if all of that wasn't enough of an indication that he's gone full supervillain, he also spends the issue monologuing about how he's doing all of this for the greater good and how morality is irrelevant. I'm not particularly attached to Hank as a character so this heel turn has been a lot of fun, but there's also a note buried in the issue that could hint at them reversing course if all of this isn't well-received.

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.
