    Yay...another book with Wolverine :rolleyes: 

    On the bright side, at least he's back in the good brown and yellow costume.

    So, then what will the other Wolverine book be about.Don't get me wrong, I'm a fan of 'ol Wolvie, but even this has me scratching my head as to why can't the normal Wolverine book be going into his origins.

    it has me scratching my head wondering how in the hell one character can be in so many books at the same time?

    i know he's one of marvel's top characters, but the suspension of disbelief is really rather thin on this - he's a regular in his own series, numerous x-men series, new avengers, guest-starring in mulitple other series, and now yet /another/ solo series? - personally i'd rather see this just done in the regular series and leave it at that

    I really don't see how this is going to relate to Wolverine finding out his origins at all... at least, not in a way that's not retarded.

    What I'm more interested in is what the significance of the brown suit is? I mean, they're all like "Wolverine's got his memories back! Brown costume ho!" but what is the deal with it?


    I think they mean for this to take place after the origins and endings story arc but before the next one. They've gotten a lot better with the "Wolverine all over the place" thing too. He hasn't been in Uncanny in months, and in New Avengers he's not there a lot of the time either.

    Well then, seems like they want to pull back on how much Wolverine shows up. Cool.

    Excellent. I'm a self confessed Wolverine junkie but I'm glad they're pulling back on how much he shows up for the sake of everyone else's enjoyment.

    I might give this a chance. I like the use of the brown costume. That Quesada cover rules all!

    I like Michael Turner. He's really talented. I loved the Supergirl arc from Superman & Batman that he illustrated (except for Kara's creepy huge eyes). All in all, he's a good artist.

    But that cover looks like ass. :puke2:

    I'll second this. I love Turner's art. I was drooling over it at last year's comic con. So much so that I think I'll buy a page this year with my tax return. (and I don't mean part of it) But that cover is pretty bad.
