Origin II #1 Review

I was however very surprised by the work that Gillen produced in this issue, as despite it being very different from Paul Jenkin’s style of storytelling, it still managed to intrigue me. What I especially liked about Gillen’s writing in this issue was the symbolism that he added, as while the lack of dialogue made the issue much quicker to lead, the tone of this style added a lot more depth to Wolverine as a character. I also loved the teasers that Gillen would add to the issue, as due to the lack of dialogue this would add the much needed suspense and drama.

The best part about the issue however had to be Adam Kubert’s artwork, with Kubert following in the footsteps of his brother Andy brilliantly. Now anyone who’s seen both Adam and Andy’s artwork in the past will know that they both have very different styles, and that is evident in this issue. The thing I loved most about Kubert’s art had to be the layout, as due to the lack of dialogue it need to be much more impactful than a regular comic book layout. Kubert would also add a lot of emotion, as well as gore to the issue, with his style matching the story’s tone perfectly.

@wolverine08: Yeah I was very sceptical when I first heard about it coming out, especially with Gillen being the writer (as he can either be very good or very bad). I did however really enjoy it and hope it gets better.

I'm not a huge Wolverine fan, and the overuse of Logan by Marvel disinterests me from picking up a new Wolverine-related title. I'm actually glad I check this out.Kieron Gillen uses third-person narration to this first chapter. The writing was very solid. Adam Kubert illustrates some very bloody panels. The art looks phenomenal with the light white and red colours. The co...
