The feel of the movie is great. Logan is far from the God-like badass he is in the the current gen comics. He's vulnerable, fallible and, for the of a better word, human.
Of course that the Hollywood Gods chose to do a midichlorians twist on the classic story. Why? Who knows. there was no need to stab the original material like that. Oh well, nothing's perfect right.
And this reminded me that I wanted to review this fouth volume of Wolverine and the X-Men.
How is it?
This volume suffers from the same problems as the last one. Its nothing but a compilation of tie-in with the event du jour (at the time it was originally printed). The worst part is that in the middle of these loose tie-in issues stuff happens that will have an impact further on. There are going to be changes to the rooster, and not all are nice ones.

Sadly there isn't much more to it. Loose chapters, little to no story, some changes to the book's status quo.
Art wise its as good as the previous volume. Except for one chapter, where the dreaded fill-in artist came on board and made something completely different (in a bad way). But, overall, if you liked it, then great, if you don't like this cartoony style, then you might not enjoy this very much.
In all honesty I can't recommend it. If I judge this book on its own merits, then it sucks big time. There is no coherent narrative, no story per se, no structure, no point. If, on the other hand, you follow the Marvel Universe closely, then this is a nice enough read, that you might enjoy IF you follow this AVX event.
