    Excellent chapter full of shocking revelations and moments of extreme violence. The Laura and Savage sequence…WOW.

    With details and many strokes, the art offers a dynamic texture that increases the level of violence.

    Wolverine #43 is a good table-setting chapter in an ongoing war but building in new and exciting ways. Bloodthirsty fans will like it, while the remainder of Sabretooth and Wolverine’s good old days are expertly revisited.

    While Logan is still processing what all just happened, Sabretooth takes a nap, reminisces about the past, and gets right back to it. I can’t wait to see how this all plays out, with so many stories all closing in at once. If you feel overwhelmed at all, no need to worry as throughout this series there is always a catch up paragraph to kick off each issue. However, if you’re loving it all and need more, you can also go check out Sabretooth and the Exiles.

    All in all, if you’re a Wolverine fan, you should definitely be reading this run, and there is literally no better time to catch up on Wolverine than right now (I’m still riding the high of that Deadpool & WOLVERINE trailer)! So, grab this comic, throw on some yellow spandex, open a Canadian lager, and enjoy. SNIKT!

    Victor Creed’s brutal crusade continues in a more exploratory way as ‘Wolverine’ #43 scales back the over-the-top violence just a bit as the ‘Sabretooth War’ rages on. Rough around the edges applies to various aspects of this third event chapter, hitting some of the same marks as previous issues while presenting something a tiny bit different.

    Wolverine #43 takes a moment to catch its breath and expand on Sabretooths motives and thought process while setting up some interesting things, especially with The Exiles. Despite being nearly Wolverine-free, the flashbacks were a lot of fun and it gives the creative team a chance to set up whats to come. The issue ends with a literal treasure map, so Wolverine #44 should be a lot of fun.

    So along with quickly assuring us that the big cliffhanger from the last issue was a false alarm (you’re shocked, I can tell), Wolverine #44 slows things down quite a bit by calling back to a separate Sabretooth miniseries with The Exiles. There’s very little for Logan to actually do this time around, but at least we get answers as to what Creed’s ultimate goal in torturing Wolverine actually is. It’s the weakest of the event so far, but after last issue I’ll gladly a break from the splatterfest.
