Editorial Reviews

To many, Wolverine is Marvel’s finest hero: the best there is at what he does. Genetics, environment, divine intervention: what incredible forces created this man, the world’s greatest killing machine with a heart as big as the great outdoors?


Years into the past, we find three friends, brought together through fate, soon to be divided by tragedy. James Howlett, a sickly boy, stuck in a world where the weak are mocked and left behind. Rose, a young orphan girl summoned to work at the wealthy Howlett estate. And Dog, a poor boy abused by his father, with no hope for a better life. Three friends on the verge of having their innocence shattered. Three companions about to be confronted by the most shocking events of their young lives. Welcome to the greatest story never told.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Tragic Story July 8, 2013
Format:DVD
Another excellent motion comic from Marvel Knights. Remember, this is not a "regular" cartoon but a motion comic. It's not the same. The original artwork is intact with rudimentary movement added. The voice acting is very good. I did not realize how tragic Wolverine's early life was. Watch this to find out. Still, my favorite motion comic is "Spider-Woman" which, I think, was the first one and the mouths did not move. Each motion comic that Marvel releases has it's own unique artwork. I hope this form of art continues.

Before you make your purchase, please beware that this story is truly about the origins of the boy who would become the man that would turn into who we know as Wolverine. Before Professor Xavier, before Alpha Flight, before the X-Men, the battles with his nemesis Sabretooth(although he is definitely foreshadowed), James Howlett's early beginnings bear no resemblance to what his life would later become. The ferocity and strength he would later develop would not allow one to guess that as a young boy he was very sheltered, very weak and came from wealth. This is a history that I had never considered but Marvel has done well with choosing this for a motion comic. As the first review mentions, the voice acting is superb, and while I have to concur with the thought that Spider~Woman, Agent of S.W.O.R.D. is done better, this is not by any means not worth the purchase. I do not say this to merely suggest I am comparing one motion comic to another, but once you are smitten with one, your expectations start to rise even if you are not necessarily aware of it. Listening to the creators and understanding the process to produce the original artwork is a treat within itself, and for myself, I think Marvel would do well to re-release the original comics in their pencil form by Andy Kubert: it looks that good. Even the colorist Richard Isanove's approach to complimenting Kubert's works are fascinating, as well, so indeed, this gets a hard earned 4 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars its a motion comic December 23, 2013
By Ryan G.
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Didnt realize this when I bought it. It took me by surprise at first, but really enjoyed one of my favorite Wolverine stories come to life. If you enjoyed the book, and like motion comics its aneasy choice to buy. Wish they would have included that it was a motion comic in the description though.

5.0 out of 5 stars Logan's story is finally told... November 25, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I've never been a fan of Wolverine, but I like the character nonetheless. I'm a comic book reader who feels his origin should have remained untold as doing so added the mystique to him. However, this story did exactly the opposite of what I thought would happen if Wolverine's origin was ever told: it enhanced his mystique. This story is one of the capstones of Joe Quesada's tenure as Marvel Comics' Editor-In-Chief.

I enjoy the Marvel Knights animation series as I believe it exposes people like me who haven't read many of the Marvel Knights titles to some great stories that might be worth checking out via trade paperbacks. I'm always fascinated with how the animators use stop motion techniques to maintain the integrity of the original comics in both story and art. I believe this piece to be one of their best projects yet. I salute Marvel for this effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting take on how Wolverine began September 1, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I enjoyed this story, but it is not my favorite story of how Wolverine became to be. It is to the producers credit to try to tie up loose ends and entertain fans at the same time. Recommended.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Great Story! September 2, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
If you know this story, you know how important it is for Wolverine fans and how well crafted it is. This is an animated comic and if you enjoy the story and the animation style then this a no brainer. But if you don't meet both of those criteria then you might want to give it some thought. My wife will watch most animated shows with me but she will not watch these because of what she calls "that still frame animation."

5.0 out of 5 stars An Origin you won't expect August 19, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
What most of us have learned to expect is a current day Origin story and you'd be wrong to expect that given James Howlett's life span. This story takes place in the beginning of the industrial revolution during the character's youth and we witness his ability to labor, to heal from injuries, his learning of the existence of Samurai, and many other facets of what become his character. A must have for any fan of Wolverine and in some ways better than the theatrical film version.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad for a comic book movie
Not bad, but it's a moving comic book, not exactly a animated movie. But the story was pretty good. Showing where Logan came from and how he became who he is now.
