    The Super Powered Fancast

    The Story: A really enjoyable and action packed entry from Benjamin Percy. The story is great and Percy does a great job of not pushing the pace and not keeping Wolverine sidelined for too long. I like the fact that this adventure has nothing to do with Krakoa and focuses on Wolverine working alone to stop a threat he had a hand in creating. The story moves at a great pace and the action is awesome. There are some great character moments for Logan in this issue and the story is evolving in ways that keep me interested in what comes next. The Art: Viktor Bogdanovich is pitch perfect with the art in this issue. From the detailed characters to the beautiful compositions, the art in this issue is filled with energy. Bogdanovich perfectly captures the dark, raw energy of the story and brings it forth in this issue.

    You Don't Read Comics

    Wolverine #5 is a great little comic. There are a few deficiencies to it, but one of them helps the story move along, and the other isn't Percy's fault. It's still very entertaining, though, and while it isn't as artfully written as some previous issues, it's still quite good. Bogdanovic and Wilson do a great job with the art. Wolverine #5 is a lot of fun.

    Weird Science Marvel Comics

    WOLVERINE #5 certainly had its moments. From a frozen Logan popsicles to Vampire hunting, this comic was definitely fun with Segovias art has a highlight of the issue.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots

    A lot of Wolverine fans will appreciate this issue because even though Wolverine starts at a disadvantage, by the end, readers see him “be the best at what he does.” However, after the page listing the upcoming X-titles, Wolverine is walking through the woods before being transported by a rainbow. Given the lettering of the person’s voice and the use of the rainbow, one gets the impression that this is the Bifrost transporting Wolverine to Asgard. More than likely, it is probably related to the upcoming X of Swords event. Readers will have to wait to find out.

    It's part two of the long-promised Wolverine vs. Vampires story, and this issue is exactly the glorious hot mess that you'd expect. It's filled with convoluted plot points (Wolverine's blood can suddenly give vampires the ability to walk in the sunlight! The vampires are targeting declining Canadian towns out of pure coincidence!), silly but awesome visuals (Wolverine spends the first few pages in a block of ice! Canadian punk vampires eat moose instead of humans!), and lots of decapitations. While this isn't necessarily a "good" comic, I firmly believe that Wolverine at least borders "so dumb, it's fun" territory.

    If you want a fun one-off story of Wolverine fighting vampires, this is definitely for you. It's very "comic books". Unfortunately, it doesn't quite fit in with the rest of the world Jonathan Hickman is building for the X-Men.

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.
