First of all, I want to point out the fact that I'm a huge fan of the Loeb/Sale creative team, which is really what drove me to buy this very limited series. That said, this was a huge disappointment.

I'll admit wholeheartedly that I'm really not a Wolverine fan. For me, this should have just starred Gambit (and I'm not even a big fan of him either) and maybe put in some small guest appearances from other X-Men, similar to how Loeb tossed the Fantastic Four into "Daredevil: Yellow" or how a number of Batman's villains pop in "Dark Victory" as mercenaries. Loeb did a great job on everything involving Gambit, and the beginning of the series showed promise because of it. It literally went downhill when Wolverine was introduced into the story.

So the premise here is that five women have been butchered in London by a killer whose style brings back thoughts of Jack the Ripper. Gambit, having known the last victim, flies out to London to investigate, where he discovers that the victims all had traces of bone in their stab wounds. It is not long before he finds Wolverine in a dark alley with blood on his claws... and out of respect for his friend, he is willing to give him the benefit of the doubt - no matter how small it is.

To explain exactly why I hated the story would be spoiling it, even though the pay-off is so so very small and disappointing. But suffice it to say that once Wolverine is introduced, we begin to follow two completely different perspectives, which only serve to interrupt the plot-flow, and maybe try in a halfhearted effort, to justify Wolverine's involvement. Even though we're pretty sure Wolverine isn't the one who's been killing those women, we really aren't given much evidence to explain why he has blood on his claws.

I'm a huge fan of the x-men and Loeb's work, especially when he collaborates with Sale. I like how they come up with some interesting detective-esque stories and focus on characterization instead of mindless action. For that this story is kinda short (only 4 issues) I feel like they did a great job with what they were given. I look forward to seeing them two work on a nother x-men related story.

I love Loeb/Sale together. However, this story seemed extremely bland for the characters that were involved. I guess I was expecting a little more of some type of slug-fest or deeper insight into the characters, but it was something else entirely. The characters seemed out of place for the setting and the coloring job took away from Tim Sale's beautiful ink work.

I still enjoyed reading it, but I just can't bring myself to give it 5 stars.

I remember when I was a teenager saving my lunch money from school, then going to the comic book shop to pick up the issues to this trade Paperback. It brings back a lot of memories, and reminds me of how Marvel USED to have good writers. The storyline reads like a modern "Jack the Ripper" tail, only it features Wolverine as the prime suspect, and Gambit as the man to bring him in. Though the artwork is not as amazing as today's, it was the whole storyline that brought you in, along with the characterizations of Wolverine and Gambit.

This series came out in two previous trade paperbacks, but they were quickly off the market and hard to find. Now, Marvel has put the Wolverine/Gambit Victims series in a lovely hardcover trade paperback, and it's available again! I suggest anyone who's a fan of Wolverine or the "Ragin' Cajun" Gambit to pick up this trade, before Marvel makes it go away, again.
