Comic Review: Wolverine Goes To Hell

Wolverine Goes To Hell

Wolverine Goes To Hell

Has his past transgressions  finally caught up with Logan or are there devilish forces at work. A Marvel story written by Jason Aaron (Scalped, Punisher MAX) and illustrated Renato Guedes (Constantine, OMAC), has someone finally done the impossible and killed Wolverine.

Wolverine is falling into the pits of hell and he’s not exactly sure how this happened. Landing firmly on the ground he is greeted by the king of hell. His only goal is to break Wolverine’s will, which he starts by sending his demons to fight him. Wolverine quickly finds out that even though he can’t die, he can’t heal either. While in hell, his body still survives upon the earth under the control of demon’s. It may be a long time before we see the real Wolverine again.

Great concept, sending him to hell but, the story starts quite abruptly. You need to go with the story for awhile before you get an idea of how this all came together. Really enjoyed the demon’s and guy running hell, you never really get a sense of who he is. Give it a try and find out what happens to Wolverine.

Comic Review: The Incredible Hulk Volume 1

The Incredible Hulk Volume 1

The Incredible Hulk Volume 1

Bruce Banner and the Hulk square off with The Island of Doctor Moreau type monster’s. This last Hulk series before Marvel Now reboot is written by Jason Aaron (Wolverine Weapon X, Ghost Rider) and illustrated by Marc Silvestri (The Darkness, Cyber Force) for the first 3 and Whilce Portacio (Wetworks, Alpha Flight) for the last 4.

The Hulk, sick of Bruce Banner, finds away to separate them into their own bodies. Leaving Banner, Hulk goes to live inside the earth with a race of mole people. Eventually his peace is disrupted by a government agency needing his help. It’s Banner, he is living on a deserted island trying to create Hulk creatures. Reluctantly the Hulk accepts and set’s about to bring Banner down.

This is a great series, hulk fan or not, the Doctor Moreau animals are frigin awesome. Both of the illustrators do a great job of bringing forth the craziness of what Banner is doing and the animal/monsters. If you enjoyed this volume check out the next one, story line gets even better.

Comic Review: Punisher MAX Volume 1 Kingpin

Punisher MAX Volume 1 Kingpin

Punisher MAX Volume 1 Kingpin

This is a reboot of the Punisher MAX series with a new continuous storyline. In this volume Jason Aaron (The Other Side, Scalped) and artist Steve Dillon (Skreemer, Preacher) tell the re-imagined origin story of Kingpin.

The Punisher is doing what he usually does–killing bad guys. As he moves through the streets he starts to hear whispers about a boss of bosses coming to town. His name is The Kingpin but The Punisher has never seen or heard of him before. With the streets preparing for his arrival can The Punisher find him. Or will The Kingpin be standing over his dead body–if he even exists that is.

As always the MAX series is known for its gore and violence. It definitely does not disappoint. The new origin of Kingpin is a brutal story that is very satisfying. I liked the previous MAX series but what’s really enjoyable about this series is the continuation. Each volume leads into the next following the ending of the previous issue.
