It’s the conclusion of the field-trip to the Savage Land, and what an enjoyable arc this has been. The artwork from Ramon Perez has been excellent, and it allowed Aaron to focus on a smaller grouping of his insanely large cast and give each of them a lot more character development. Hell, you could even say that Wolverine himself has grown because of this story, which is rare for him.
I think my favourite moment in this issue was the unexpected bad-ass that is Eye Boy. He’s a mutant with a power that could be considered incredibly lame, but Aaron is looking at it differently from most, and you get to see how it may actually be useful to have eyes all over yourself, not only would you have awesome aim, but you’d be able to see things others wouldn’t, like picking up on little tics like Sherlock Holmes or something. Eye Boy, the baddest man in comics, ladies and gentlemen.
Also interesting was the hint that there’s still some of Old Broo inside the mind of his current savage self, and that Quentin Quire had a moment of heroism! It’s also cool that Glob Herman has now formally defected to the Hellfire Club, and that Sauron is involved with them! That’s pretty damn exciting. What else… hmm.. oh yeah, Dog! He’s a surprisingly effective villain, because he’s not really a villain, I actually felt sorry for him in this issue, I wonder what’s next for him? It looks like next issue is set in the future, more time-travel shenanigans, which should be good, will he, or his future self, be involved?
