Wolverine #4 Review

Writer: Jason Aaron
Art: Renato Guedes
Cover by: Jae Lee

Wolverine Goes to Hell Part 4 (of 5)

There was certainly no lack of action in this one. It really comes as no surprise since there are a couple of different Wolverine’s right now, so it makes sense that there would be double the fighting. As far as Logan goes, he’s still in Hell doing battle with the Devil. Of course he’s being as stubborn as ever and shows no sign of giving in. Logan takes the upper hand in the battle, getting everyone in Hell all riled up. At the same time, demon Wolverine continues to cause problems on the surface, now with the X-Men.

Well that’s pretty much the whole story right there, not too many slow moments in this one. Pretty much nonstop fighting and action from cover to cover, making this a really quick read. Lots of action isn't always a good thing though. With all of this fighting continuing on, I expect all Hell to break loose next month, literally. Mystique shows up for one great panel here, but what really steals the show is the reveal at the end. We finally see what this plan is with Puck and the mysterious old man, and we learn who’s pulling the strings of this rebellion in Hell and why. I don’t want to ruin it here, so I’ll let you guys see for yourselves.

No complaints about the art and I must add that the cover by Jae Lee was awesome. I'm hoping for a strong ending here that will hopefully wrap up this Wolverine Goes to Hell story. As for this one, it was pretty good, though it really is a perfect example that more action does not always make for a more exciting comic. The final reveal at the end really picked this one up.
