Review: A traumatised Wolverine leaves the superhero world behind to become a farmer and raise a family, calling himself Logan and swearing non-violence for the rest of his life Meanwhile, the grossly outnumbered superheroes who remain are overpowered by a newly organised group collecting all of the supervillains to kill the heroes and divide up America amongst them. 50 years pass and Logan has fallen behind in rent to the Banner clan, Bruce Banner's family who govern their section of America. With the threat of violence against his family, Logan takes a risky courier job with his old friend Hawkeye, driving across America to deliver an unknown shipment to New Babylon. But will he make it back in time - and what happened to him to make him become a pacifist? Mark Millar returns with his frequent collaborator, artist Steve McNiven, to deliver the goods on another fine book. I loved what he'd done, wreaking havoc on the America we know, and the gruesome ways in which the superheroes died. I particularly found the way Bruce Banner had turned evil and become a "greenneck" hillbilly interesting, as well as how the X-Men died, and the different rulers of the divided states of America (Red Skull is great as is Peter Parker's granddaughter). The action is frequent throughout, all building up to the moment when - SNIKT! - the claws come out at last, but the anticipation is part of the fun of this book. The violence is what you'd expect in a Mark Millar book, that is to say it is very grisly and graphic, but that fits in with the character of Wolverine who is allowed to show the violence he is capable of in full view on the page and McNiven does a fine job of showcasing this. Overall, a very fun, alternate take on the Marvel universe, and an excellent read with some fantastic art as always from Steve McNiven. A must-read for fans of superhero comics - Mark Millar does it again!

Review: This is one of the best Marvel stories I've read in a long while. I won't bother giving a description of the story because if you're reading this you probably already know what the story's about. I found this to be an entertaining story all the way through, except for the ending which I thought was a little weak. There are a few minor things with the story that kind of annoy me, though. One of those things is the unanswered questions. I know the story was about Wolverine and not really about what exactly happened to the other heroes, but it would have been more satisfying for the readers if we were given a little bit more detail on this, especially when it came to Thor and Loki's deaths. I mean, Thor and Loki aren't exactly your normal super hero and super villain, so I doubt they would have just died and stayed dead, although for the sake of this story that's probably what had to happen, so we can let that one slide. My only other annoyances with the story are ones like previously mentioned, such as why didn't the villains try and finish Wolverine off instead of just letting him live? Doesn't make sense really. And SPOILER* why on earth would Banner/Hulk think they could kill Wolverine in the way they attempted to? END SPOILER* That didn't make sense either, but it doesn't matter too much I suppose because it was overall a good story and I'm sure most Wolverine fans will love it.
