Review by

This volume contains the four-issue Wolverine mini-series by Claremont and Miller and issues 172 and 173 of the Uncanny X-Men, which are a direct continuation of the mini-series. Overall, pretty good stuff. Claremont's writing style is verbose, as usual, and while his love of international cultures shines through in this as in many of his tales, the odd and/or incorrect romanizations of some Japanese words were distracting (such as "Hei" instead of "Hai"). Miller's art is okay, not at the level of Dark Knight Returns or Sin City, but on par with his early Daredevil run. Paul Smith's art in the X-Men issues is interesting at times (Wolverine in uniform looks very angular and cool) and rushed and poor at others (Storm sometimes looks like a humanoid panther, with large nose and lips that are almost a characterization of an African American). All in all, this is a classic piece of Wolverine's much re-worked history and is essential for anyone who wants to understand the character.

This one was interesting. I'm pretty sure the new Wolverine movie (The Wolverine) which is set in Japan is based off of these chapters but I could be wrong because it didn't follow the story basically at all. I'm unclear on where this fits chronologically but oh well. I'm also not used to colored graphic novels so it threw me off just a little, but if I get past that I can see that the artwork is really good. The blatant and badly colored panels just distract me from it.
