The GoodZeb Wells and Paolo Rivera's story was definitely the best. Out of all the "waxing philosophic at a bar" shorts, this was the one that captured Wolverine's character the most genuinely and, surprisingly, the whole "buddy movie" dynamic with Spidey actually yields an applicable message.
The Loeb/ McGuinness short - - which recreated Wolverine's first appearance in the Hulk - - was a fun romp. McGuinness' art is awesome, as always, and Loeb not only captures Wolverine's voice, but he offers a fun explanation as to why the character's been, well, out-of-character at times throughout his career.
The other two "Wolverine in a bar" stories are actually pretty good. I liked the "Worst There Is" more out of the two because Yocum devised a great foil for Wolverine in that precocious little girl looking for her Daddy. It was actually a lot of fun.
The BadThe last story, a silent one, doesn't feel like a comic. It felt like sample pages from an artist's portfolio. Wolverine escapes from Weapon X, protects the Hudsons from wolves and then frightens them with his savagery. You've seen that a thousand times, with words, before.
I know that part of the appeal of these specials is to see characters like Wolverine in unusual scenarios, but "The Curse of the Yellow Claw" was too much of a diversion from the norm. It honestly read like a generic detective story that had been slightly re-worked to be about Wolverine. Scott's depiction of him even looks like Clive Owen with only a slight flourish to his hair. Calmly collecting information and reflecting on it all so academically doesn't strike me as Wolverine's M.O. either.
