Review of the Week: Death of Wolverine #2

If you haven't already, check out my review of part one. Last issue Wolverine finds out that Madam Viper is the one who put the contract on his head, so this issue he decides to pay her a visit. When he finally confronts her she sicks her newest pet Sabertooth on him. Before Sabertooth can make short work of the de-powered Logan, Lady Deathstrike shows up to help him. Sabertooth and Viper both flee but Deathstrike informs Logan that someone has put prices on the heads of her, Logan, Sabertooth, and others "like us". When she seems Logan no longer has his healing she decides to take collect the bounty on his head in order to undo the one one hers, only to be stopped by Kitty Pryde.

It looks like this story is going to try and include as many important Wolverine related characters as it can, which is only fitting if it intends to be a major Wolverine epic. As with last issue, it's a little slow pace wise, but the fantastic art and solid characterization make up for it. Also like I said it is good to finally see the lose of Wolverine's healing treated like the major crippling thing it is, even if he is still probably too much of a bad ass given the circumstances. All and all this is a solid story so far and I'm looking forward to part three.
