Format: Hardcover
The last Wolverine graphic novel that was this seminal, this important to read was Barry Windsor Smith's Weapon X. Origins and Endings is the rare graphic that provides both a perfect start for new readers unfamiliar with the character and a devishly delicious plot filled with small details the long time fan will drool over.

At the end of House of M, Wolverine regained his memory. His ENTIRE memory. Though I thought I wouldn't like this turn of events, Daniel Way handles it in such a way that just enough is revealed to answer almost none of the reader's questions, but to provide even more intrigue than before.

The art by Saltares and Texira is fabulous, and just moody enough to be perfect. There's even small details the artists have incorporated to make the long time X-Fan say " I can't believe they threw that in!"

This really is the best X-Men graphic in years. I'm frustrated I can't rate it higher. Please, get yourself a copy and then get a copy for your friend. You won't want to lend yours out, you'll be too busy re-reading it again and again!

Highest recommendations to new fans and seasoned fans alike!

What you need to know: Marvel's "House of M" series was about Scarlet Witch using her powers to grant the wish of everyone. Wolverine's wish was to regain his memories (among other things - including his secret desire to BE Nick Fury!). After the "House of M", many things were returned back to normal but some things were changed (see "Decimation" books for more details). However, for long-term Marvel fans, one of the most important change was that Wolverine now has all his memories. And having lived for a century or more, the memories/information he had to sift through is really quite enormous. This story is the beginning of Wolverine's quest to piece all the jumbled mess of a century's worth of memory/information together again.

Wolverine's character had been defined for years as the man that we really know nothing about. But that's ok for fans since we get to know the man intimately in his tales of triumphs and tragedies. Over the years, we cheered when he proposed to Mariko, we wept when he was rejected, we were shocked when his adamantium was forcefully yanked out of him, we smiled at his beer-drinking with Nightcrawler, we cringed when he went berserk during the "Weapon-X" experiment, etc. He becomes more than a comic character. He becomes an inspiration, a friend. And like our friends, we don't have to know everything about them to know them well. At the same time, because we know and cherish Wolverine, it piques our curiosity to discover more about him. Writers from Chris Claremont to Barry Windsor-Smith and Larry Hama have teased us with bits of information over the years - yet always making us hunger for more. Earlier in this decade, Marvel decided to spill the beans on Wolverine's early life in the Paul Jenkins penned series called "Origin".

I Love Daniel Way's Origin arc. It is a good move forward in the characters story, A needed push in character development, and I'm truly sad that it is contradicted by later stories. The first volume is a good start, it sets the pace and tone for what is a fun and action packed adventure.

Long pauses of mostly silent art are used to varying effect in this collection. We find a couple of surprises here, especially regarding Bucky Barnes' Winter Soldier mission that involved killing some of Wolverine's loved ones. He goes animal quite a bit in this collection, regarding himself as something other than human. But he's on a mission tracking those who have used and abused him, and those who still have answers that will lead to even more questions to the questions he already has. It's a quick read.

Pretty boring and not worth the $12. The art wasn't bad, but it felt like the book was lacking substance. See if you can read this at your public library. If you're really into the whole pre-wolverine/weapon-x era, get the $14 hardcover comic by Windsor-Smith. The art is raw and the story is dark.

some people think this is a horrible book. its not super great, but its not horrible either. alot of these stories put a new twist and perspective on old wolverine stories. (fyi: wolverine and captain america had history together BEFORE the winter soldier, duh!) and, no main characters were killed off in this story, so dont let other reviews fool you. its a little hard to follow, it took me a 2nd read to make sense of it, and i've been reading wolverine stories on and off since the late 80s.

Well, this is a very interesting saga of our favourite mutant. For those who are reading only ORIGINS and want to know some details about how that title began, this is a MUST-HAVE TPB.
