The first half (Wolverine under control) was not too strong. There was no real sense of urgency or trepidation on the part of SHIELD as Wolverine tears an apparant bloody swath through the Marvel Universe. The reader gets some idea from statistics reported by agents, but only a few actual fights with mainstream heroes are shown. Some superflous sub-plots invovling the power struggles among the villains of the piece that didn't seem to account for much of an impact other than to add a few pages to fill out an issue.
The second half is a bit more cohesive story-wise as Wolverine tracks down the Hydra/Hand leadership and bases of operation to disrupt their plans and exact his revenge for the part he was forced to play and some of those he was forced to kill along the way.
Great art by John Romita, JR, that is worth the price.
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.
Though a high cost was paid, Wolverine was finally captured. Shield managed to return him to himself, and Logan swore revenge of Hydra, the Hand, and the Dawn of the White Light. Never before has Wolverine been quite so frightening as in this graphic and it's processor. Seeing him wade into an ocean of ninjas and obliterate them is a beautiful sight to behold.
Guest stars include Elektra, Nick Fury, Northstar, Kitty Pryde, Sentinels, and an ocean of villains.
Mike Millar is easily one of the best writer in comics today. His stories are unrelenting, brutal, intricate, and exquisite. John Romita Junior has been drawing Wolverine for more than two decades and Elektra for over ten years. His expertise with these characters lends power to the brutal beauty of his line work.
While Wolverine Enemy of the State vol. 2 is better having first enjoyed volume one, it can be read alone. It also can be enjoyed by newcomers and seasoned fans alike.
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.
