    This is yet another fantastic example of how shorter comics stories can reap huge benefits. All three stories do a little bit more with the story than simply showing off fight scenes, which is an improvement on previous issues. Wolverine: Black, White & Blood#3 is a instant buy if you dig clever storytelling packaged with lots of Wolverine, blood, and fight comics goodness.

    The Super Powered Fancast

    32 Warriors and A Broken Heart – A beautifully told tale filled with love, honor and regret. Fornes’ art is sublime as the journey is perfectly captured in black and white.

    Burn – The story is fun and filled with great action. The tone is perfect for the characters and Bachalo kills it with the art.

    Red Planet Blues – A great short story that showcases how much more than a brawler Wolverine is. The art from Jesus Saiz is beautifully detailed.

    Wolverine: Black White and Blood #3 is full of good stories. “32 Warriors And A Broken Heart” written by John Ridley is easily an all-time best Wolverine story and Jorge Fornes’ art is a perfect complement. And both Donny Cates’ “Burn” and Jed MacKay’s “Red Planet Blues” are solid entries as well, but both lose something with their art. “Burn” features art by Chris Bachalo and while it suits the story, it’s visually messy and difficult in this red/black/white format. It’s an example of just how critical color can be. Jesus Saiz’s work in “Red Planet Blues” is just stylistically jarring—again, not bad, but also just odd. The real issue at play here, given that the stories are well-written and each with their own interest and version of Wolverine, is how effective this whole format is three issues in. Even with its trio of good stories, Wolverine: Black White and Blood #3 is starting to feel repetitive in a way that does none of those stories nor the character any favors.

    You Don't Read Comics

    The first story is the strongest of the bunch, touching on Wolverine’s past in Japan and telling a story that touches on his life’s weariness and the things he sacrifices for being a hero. The third is a lot of fun and shows readers that Wolverine is as smart as he is tough. The second story is a huge disappointment on all counts. It barely belongs in this book, and Bachalo’s art just doesn’t translate well to black and white.
