Review of the Week: Death of Wolverine #1
And that's about it really plot wise. I have to admit, when Wolverine lost his healing factor a few months ago I thought it was one of the dumbest things I've read in comics in a long time. I mean, I get that it's super hero comics, and I gotta suspend my disbelief, but you gotta meet me half way on that. A Wolverine with no healing factor should be dead in a week. Hell, just popping the claws would leave him needing stitches. And he was still an active Avenger and X-man after losing his healing? Bullshit. Just plain old bullshit. But this issue no longer just glosses over it and deals with what a dead man Logan is without his healing. The art and writing are both solid, and I really liked the very stoic way Logan is accepting his death sentence. I can't say I care for the speculator-bait feel to this story line, especially since we know he'll be back somehow in like 3 months time tops, but it was still a decent read and worth checking out.
