Welcome back, sorry that I have missed a few, but we are back to reviewing comics every day! Today, Seppin is going to be reviewing Hunt for Wolverine-Dead Ends #1 written by Charles Soule and art by Ramon Rosanas.
I have already expressed my feelings towards the Hunt for Wolverine series, but in case you are new, I will elaborate. I don’t like the book. Although I like the characters and having them all come together for Logan is a great concept and premise. I don’t think that it actually works well on the page. Every story feels a little forced because Marvel is trying to fix all of its mistakes when they rebooted, but this is just sad. The stories aren’t great either and I feel terrible criticizing Charles Soule because I really do like his work. It’s just that this event has lasted too long and every Wolverine that we have met are false leads or dead ends…
This brings me to this new story that connects all of the books together. It has some cool moments and I am interested in Wolverine’s new villain. I am excited to see his new mutant power manifesting. However, I am still burdened to wait for this. It’s become really boring and uninteresting. Oh, let’s blow up Avengers Mansion. That happens at least five times a year, think of something new. I had wished that maybe the Madripoor story had stayed because that had a larger connection with Logan and probably had been way more interesting than this.
Overall, I can’t wait to see Logan reappear, but until then I am not going to be enjoying this book.
(How good is the story? Does it stand up to others?)
(Does it tell the story? Does it work well with the character?)
(Does this story need to be told? Is it helping the Character?)
(Is the character represented well? Does the writer understand the character?)
Total: 10 / 20
