The Super Powered FancastThe 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 ComicsWolverine #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 ComicsWOLVERINE #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 RobotsA 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.
ComicBook.comIt'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.
AIPTIf 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.
