Probably the best Wolverine story that I've read in a long long time. This is basically a four hour action movie, as many reviewers have said, of Wolverine vs. the Marvel Universe. It's nothing deep or compelling, but it is exciting and a lot of fun to read. Mark Millar captures Wolverine's sarcastic voice and attitude perfectly well, and John Romita Jr's always available art is a pleasure to look at it. The coloring is absolutely gorgeous as well. A perfect weekend's worth of entertainment. A+

As far as Wolverine stories go, this one is right up there with being one of the best.

As a character, Wolverine is overused. He's also underwritten. Most writers have a hard time bringing out the qualities in the character that make him interesting. Mark Millar has no such problems here as he presents a character most know as a hero in the role of a villain.

You can read the plot in the item description, but know that it merely scratches the surface of this tale (which would make a great movie, by the way). When Wolverine goes rogue, some of Marvel's finest are out to take him down. It's a task that is a daunting as it is messy, and the various outcomes will leave your head spinning.

This is great stuff from Millar and artist John Romita, Jr.. If you are a Wolverine fan and haven't read this yet, you can't waste another minute.

Four stars only because I started reading wolverine origins(Jenkins, kubert, and isanove origins). The artwork and story spoiled me so stepping into this story and not seeing the crisp and amazing detail to attention almost detoured me not gonna lie... but, yes there is always a but I pushed forward and realized the story and the depth as well as awesome battles make up for my fine taste in art haha. It's a very fun read and would recommend to any fan of wolverine.

It is mostly a action book. A lot of killing and people dying and coming back from the dead. Art is good and story is alright. It is Wolverine against everyone. The X-Men, Shield Fansatic 4 and the Hand. He is brainwashed again and Shield is out to get him. One of the better Wolverine titles out there.

Yup. I've never really been into Logan. Looked the character within the X-Men books but was never interested in picking up his solo stuff.

However... the first thing that grabbed my attention was John Romita Jr. One of my all-time favorite artist, if not my favorite. He is just masterful with his design and had such a beautiful style to his craft. Next was Mark Millar, who did a fantastic job giving voices to the characters that felt deep and fleshed out. His collaboration with John makes for a entertaining and fun story.

This book collects the 13 issue run Mark Millar did with John Romita Jnr on Wolverine a few years ago. Wolverine is captured and brainwashed by a terrorist organisation, part ninja, part Nazi, called Hydra led by an undying evil witch and a terrifying assassin called the Gorgon. With Wolverine on their side, they begin picking off heroes and villains to turn them to their cause of complete destruction of the world. It's not a spoiler to say Wolvey overcomes the brainwashing eventually and becomes a good guy once again and the second book has him squaring off against Hydra, the Gorgon, and a powerful hero turned evil.

The series is fast paced and exciting with Wolverine hunting down heroes, breaking into SHIELD HQ the Triskelion, and creating havoc wherever he goes. The Gorgon is a fantastically spooky villain. He looks manga-esque and is Japanese in origin though you don't find out exactly how he came to be until the second book. He's truly scary though and his final battle with Wolverine is very Greek mythology-like.

I like John Romita Jnr's artwork sometimes, here it's adequate but nothing that you're going to go crazy over. At times he makes the heroes look a bit too cartoonish which is a bit off-putting.

Millar's storytelling and hyper-violence are the stars of the show here. His writing makes reading the book that much better and interesting than the average comic book writer could manage.

The 13th issue, a standalone one-shot comic, has Wolverine as a POW in a WW2 concentration camp, driving Nazi officers to insanity with his healing factor. He has no dialogue but this was still a haunting issue that closes out a fantastic volume memorably.

I loved reading this book, both as a fan of Wolverine and as a fan of Mark Millar, and thought Millar and co. did a great job rendering a brilliant character in an epic story. Wonderful read, highly recommended to all fans of superhero comics.

This book gets glowing reviews, and a weird intro from Garth Ennis, but I didn't find it as good as Old Man Logan, also a Mark Millar story about our favorite Canadian killing machine. It even shares a parallel - Wolverine is brainwashed! But it's nowhere near as good, and just shows our guy killing, killing, killing, killing. There's a clever attack on the SHIELD helicarrier, and a clever "deep undercover" moment. Some interesting "messing with Marvel properties" stuff going on, although it's not nearly as much as he got away with in the amazing Old Man Logan (which was my reason for wanting to read this tale, which is inferior to Old Man Logan). The art by John Romita Jr is pretty good, although at times it suffers from ickiness. The plot is decent, although you have to wonder why the Fantastic Four only appears in a few scenes at the beginning when Mr Fantastic's stolen data forms such a key part of the tale.

Tacked onto the end is an interesting Twilight Zone-ish tale from a Nazi concentration camp that has absolutely nothing to do with the Enemy Of The State storyline, although in some ways it's a better story...
