Wolverine: Wendigo! Review

Writer: Frank Tieri
Penciler: Paul Gulacy (Wolverine: Wendigo!)
Paco Diaz (Wolverine vs. Thor)
Cover By: Ben Oliver

This review is going to be short and (not so) sweet. I’m getting it out early just in case you haven’t hit up your LCS yet this week. If you had any plans on picking up “Wolverine: Wendigo!” then I strongly urge you to reconsider. If you enjoy Marvel taking your money to read about a bunch of people talking, then go ahead and buy this book. Wolverine is only on a couple pages and only talks once. The story itself is not THAT terrible (actually, that may be a little too nice), but it is in no way a Wolverine book. That’s just a way for Marvel to make more sales. Now, more Wolverine is good, but it becomes overkill when the stories are crappy one-shots just to get the name out there.

Well, the second part to this was “Wolverine vs. Thor,” which was a very weak story as well. It really has no point, and does not go anywhere. Wolverine thinks that Thor is Sabretooth. They fight until Logan figures out that he’s delusional, and the story abruptly ends. Basically Loki, Thor’s brother fooled with him by giving him some weird drink. Maybe I was just so upset about the Wendigo story that I didn’t give this one a chance, but I don’t think that’s the case. The one positive is that the art is great in both stories, but do yourself a favor and buy yourself a cheeseburger or whatever else you want with that $3.99.

I give this book 1/5
