For this #TBT, I went with a book I’ve heard a lot from recommendations. Wolverine is written by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller (1982) and follows fan-favorite Logan, aka Wolverine, as he returns to Japan in an effort to win back the heart of his love, Mariko. Things don't go so well once in Japan and he learns that not only is Mariko married to an abusive husband, but that her father is attempting to seize control of the criminal underworld.
Logan ends up in a bitter struggle to free Mariko from her situation, win back her heart and also eliminate Mariko's father. Only thing standing in his way is the fearsome Hand, a group of ninja assassin's who push Wolverine to his breaking point.
I had this comic recommended to me by the Commonman Vince Ciotoli and Ken M. and after reading it I thought it was good. This movie served as the source material for the 2013 movie with High Jackman and overall I enjoyed it. The story is good with plenty of action but I felt some of the dialogue got a little repetitive, such as wolverine mentioning in his inner monologue how certain attacks would have crippled him if not for his adamantium skeleton and it's somewhat annoying when you know the character pretty well. But again, it's a good comic.
I'm giving Wolverine a B.
Thanks always for reading and I hope you are enjoying my #tbt reviews. Until next time, Signal Out!
