Another very fun issue of W&XM, but one that adds a hint of darkness to all of the humour. Which is only to be expected with the return of Sabretooth. Aaron subverts our expectations and doesn’t have Sabretooth fight Wolverine for the umpteenth time, but instead has him go up against Beast, which was cool to see, especially as Sabretooth tried to unearth the darkness that is within good old Hank McCoy. Also interesting was the students’ attack on the Casino in an attempt to get the device that could heal Wolverine’s legs (cool imagery to have Logan in a wheelchair). Yes there was the usual hilarity from Quire, Kid Gladiator and Broo, but the friendship between Angel and Evan/Kid Apocalypse is worrying. Those two have a dark history that neither of them are aware of, so it can only be heading somewhere heart-breaking. Having Chris Bachalo back on art duties was jarring at first, I had gotten used to the clean lines of Bradshaw, but by the halfway point of the issue I was back into Bachalo’s madcap groove. I thought his use of colour was very interesting in this issue, some panels are very red, some are very blue, what does it all mean?

I thought Wolverine in the wheel chair was one of the best and funniest images in a while.

I want Bradshaw back already. His art is so far ahead of Bachalo its not even funny. The art was okay for Bachalo but just not for me.
I loved the whole Wolverine in a wheelchair. Theres something hilarious about that.
