Review: Wolverine #4

Story 
 
Wolverine is still fighting the sins of his past while clinging to the hope that he will eventually be free from his punishment and seek those who put him there in the first and also going against the Red Dragon. Also the Demonic Wolverine is still killing the people Wolverine loves, but this time it is against the X-men. 
  
Good 
  
The art as usual is very good and detailed. Jaime McKelvie's art is very dynamic yet very gritty. He is good at showing movement and facial expressions which makes the story easier for the readers. The action in this issue is very good especially the fight between Colossus and Hellverine. Another thing I liked is Wolverine inner monologue. He is still a complex man even today after so many years and that's thanks to Jason Aaron's writing. He knows how to bring the Humanity back in James Howlett.
 
Bad 
 
The problem in this issue is that The Devil himself is not that great of a villain compared to Hellverine. He just talks spitting insults at Logan saying he is the worst evil in all of Hell and so on...but he does not feel menacing at all. Also another thing about the Devil is that we is surprisingly weak demon I mean come on!!!!!!!!!!! He is being held by Wolverine's broken bone claws...really!?!?!?!?!?!? 
 
Verdict 
 
Overall, a good read with good writing and art and action. However, the demon who calls himself the Devil is a weak character both physically and  figuratively. But Wolverine's cause makes up for that!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I give it a 3.5/10!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    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'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 s...
