Review: Wolverine #4

Wolverine's soul battles the lord of Hell, while Wolverine's body, inhabited by a demon, fights Colossus on Earth. 
 

The Good

This storyline has been a lot of fun. It's had great writing and great artwork throughout, and it's definitely something you’ll want to read in trade, if you can get a hold of the first three issues of the storyline. All-in-all, it’s fun and there’s a huge reveal at the end of the issue that will change Wolverine’s life, at least for the next couple of years. The fight scenes in this book are great, and they keep a great pace going through the entire issue. I’m incredibly interested to see who is going to become the new lord of Hell and if anyone will end up coming back from Hell with Wolverine. 
 

The Bad

Essentially, this issue is just a bunch of fight scenes strung together. They looked great, but the issue doesn’t offer too much more than that. It’s not a bad issue, but it does feel like it’s just stringing us a long for the last issue of this storyline. The back-up story in this issue wasn’t a Silver Samurai story, so I was a bit disappointed.
 

The Verdict 3.5/5 - Recommended

Bad Jumping-On Point  

It’s a solid fun book that sets up the last issue of the storyline. The art is fantastic, and Jason Aaron has done a wonderful job writing the series so far, but other than that, this was probably the weakest issue of the series so far. It’s good is you’ve been reading all along, but if you haven’t, wait for the trade.

I'm not much of a Wolverine fan, but I like Jason Aaron. This series has me really curious. I may pick up the trade as suggested. I wish Aaron and Dillion would get crackin' on the rest of the Bullseye arc for PunisherMAX.

Great review.  I have been meaning to read this, but I will wait for trade definitely.

    Sins of the Father...and the Son 0

    What started as a good story, now presents itself victim of it´s own dellusion of grandeur and excess of mystery. Putting so many antagonists and unusual players into a plot, which details are scarce at least, meaning Jason Aaron isn´t spilling any beans here, doesn´t interest if for lack of good answers to give or just pure and plain sadism, resulted in this weak, quite untolerable issue. This issue only matters because of the previous three and for the beautiful, yet in reason of the weak narr...

    Wolverine is still in Hell, and a seriously hard to ignore flaw in the story gets exposed in this issue that makes it hard to enjoy the many good parts.  In a time when Wolverine is serving as an Avenger and feels more domesticated that ever, it's really nice to have a writer like Jason Aaron, who seems to be embracing the premise that Logan is not that great of a good guy. Both the main and back-up features of this book are telling stories based on the idea that Wolverine has done many unforgiv...
