    I’m a sucker for a good Wolvie story, and these Uncanny X-Men spinoffs are just an extra level of fun. More than thirty years after this original comic came out this spinoff story seems more relevant than ever. If you loved Disney Plus’ X-Men 97, then I can’t recommend this comic enough. Chris Claremont is doing a fantastic job of keeping the Uncanny X-Men consistent, while having fun dusting off some of these stories. Any and all X-Men fans need to add this one to their pull list.

    Overall, Wolverine: Deep Cut #1 is a satisfying return to form for Wolverine, with a dark mystery and brutal action sequences. Pick it up if you’re a Wolverine fan and excited to learn more about his past. If you’re new to Wolverine, this might not be the best jumping-on point. Consider reading some classic Wolverine stories first.

    Wolverine: Deep Cut is Chris Claremont’s latest X-Men throwback issue, this time set in the late 80s during one of Wolverine’s annual birthday brawls with Sabretooth. Roughly 95% of the story centers around the fight, which artist Edgar Salazar brings to life in beautiful, gory detail. It’s definitely a step up from the Madripoor Knights miniseries that just wrapped, though if you were keeping up with Benjamin Percy’s Wolverine you might still be burnt out on Wolverine vs. Sabretooth after the 10-issue “Sabretooth War” event. That being said, Claremont always knew how to capture the voices of characters like Wolverine, and he hasn’t lost a step here.

    Wolverine: Deep Cut #1 offers an awesome Wolverine vs. Sabretooth fight scene as the story slowly builds towards a direction. Is it something we’ve seen many times before? Sure, but Salazar knocks it out of the park.

    Chris Claremont’s mastery of Wolverine’s voice and X-Men continuity make Wolverine: Deep Cut #1 a successful start to another continuity insert miniseries, even if the immediate plot of the issue grows repetitive.
