The Death of Wolverine: Deadpool and Captain America #1 Review

The Death of Wolverine: Deadpool and Captain America #1  | Writer: Gerry Duggan  | Artist: Scott Kolins  | Colorist: Veronica Gandini  | Publisher: Marvel  | Price: $4.99 | From my column at Forces of Geek.com

In the wake of Wolverine’s passing, Captain America and Deadpool take on the task of eliminating their compatriot’s DNA so no razor-clawed clones can be created.  

Deadpool writer Gerry Duggan was the perfect choice to helm this story.  His team-up issues are pure fun, not only because of his expertise with the loud mouth mutant, but also because of his understanding of other characters and how they interact with such an…interesting personality.

Peer pressure can be a wonderful thing sometimes. Especially when the nice lady at the comic book store plops this issue down in front of me with a look on her face that clearly indicated that my freedom of choice has been taken away from me. Continue reading “Death of Wolverine #1 Review”

My Digital Illumination

While Wednesday is just the middle of the week for most, It is new comic book day for those of us who live vicariously through 32 pages of color, action, and adventure. Yours truly lived in a galaxy far away at the local comic book shop when the average kid dreamed of being the next Babe Ruth at Little League. Hell, I still live in a galaxy far, far away while most spend their time being responsible adults. The Comic Book Shop is more than just its namesake. It’s a gathering for those who crave to escape from the everyday grind and socialize with others in the same boat. However, that may be coming to an end due to the rise of digital comic book sales.

Wolverine #19 Review

Wolverine #19 | Writer: Jason Aaron |Art: Ron Garney | Color: Jason Keith | Publisher: Marvel Comics | Price: $3.99

I almost can’t put into words how good this issue was and how much I enjoyed reading it. I’m not going to say too much because you should just take my word for it and buy this book.

It was just one big adventure that has everything a comic book fan loves. Wolverine, Fat Cobra, and Gorilla-Man are hiding inside the stomach of three dragons, using them as a disguise to break into Jade Claw’s secret hideout.

If that doesn’t hook you, then I don’t know what will. The art and colors are wonderful, and one of the panels on the last page is a bar scene where one of the dragons poke their head in the window and takes a sip of Fat Cobra’s 24-ounce beer mug.

The conclusion shows an unknown group of people looking at various targets, and they get the word they have to take out our adamantium-clawed Canadian. These last few pages really put over how much of a badass Wolverine is.  I’m done typing, please; just buy it right away. It is the must-read Wolverine book of the year!
