    Wolverine #39 is another "team-up of the month" issue, this time pairing Logan with an exiled Black Panther. Getting to see Logan play hard-boiled detective is always fun and we see more of the recent status quo change T'Challa has been dealing with in his own book, but the pair have very little in common beyond their shared history with Storm (I get why she's not here but if you're going to do a crossover with these two it feels like she should be). Overall I'd rank this below the recent issues with Hulk and Captain America but it's still decent.

    Logan continues to live in his own little world crafted by Benjamin Percy as he goes on his episodic tag-team adventures which feel completely removed from Fall of X. Taking one of the most popular and recognizable mutants out of the main titles will never make sense to me, but hey what do I know? As an individual issue there was nothing wrong here, but it is entirely skippable if you want to be budget conscious and only read issues that move the Fall of X needle. I thought Juan José Ryp’s art here was a lot more effective compared to his work on this week’s Immortal X-Men. His designs allowed Black Panther’s new costume to shine.

    Wolverine #39 is an easily skippable issue. It serves little for the bigger story while delivering action scenes that lack stakes or danger. The issue looks good, but it all feels like it could easily fit into the first half of a better comic.

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.
