Wolverine #304 (Goodbye Jason Aaron Spoilers)

Postby Punchy » Sat Apr 14, 2012 11:59 am

Jason Aaron wraps up his run on Wolverine in fine style, with an issue that not only serves as a kind of ‘greatest hits’ for his tenure as a whole, but one that also sets up stuff for the Wolverine & The X-Men title for the future and works as a fine action issue in and of itself. The main set-up is that Sabretooth, the newly minted Kingpin of all Asia is having a supervillain party, which Wolverine crashes, leading to violence. This fight was awesome, drawn brilliantly by the master of gore, Steve Dillon, and a great twist on the old ‘Sabretooth tries to kill Wolverine every year on his birthday’ story. In amongst Logan laying waste to a lot of his villains, Aaron brings back a lot of familiar faces, including Maverick, Dr Rot, The Adamantium Men, Kade Kilgore, one of the Buzzard Brothers, Melita Garner and the other ex-girlfriends, Yukio and Amiko, Wolverine’s dead kids, Fat Cobra, Daken and more. It was awesome, and managed to make the zillion different artists work really well, it was great seeing the likes of Garney, Acuna and Guedes back drawing Wolverine again. This was a great issue and a great ending to one of the finest Wolverine runs ever, Cullen Bunn has a lot to live up to, that’s for sure. And that’s not forgetting that Aaron is still writing Wolverine every month in W&XM. So it’s goodbye, but not really. SNIKT!

I really didn't like this issue at all. I think the arc and his run should've ended last issue.

Who is coming on next as writer?

Nice!! A lead into Loeb's Return of Sabretooth no doubt.

Mercifully, Bunn and Paul Pelletier (ugh), are only wasting 3/4 issues, before Loeb comes back. Thank God.

The patchy art on these last few issues has really left a bad taste after an otherwise superb run on Wolverine by Aaron. I found it really hard to settle into the story when it kept switching styles and not always just because the action was changing locations. Bunn should be good for a while, but I'd prefer a better artist and then we get the reverse of the scenario with Bianchi illustrating something most likely better suited to toilet paper.

You realise it was a jam issue, hence all the artists?
