S for someone!!! In this issue, Wolverine and Sabretooth go down memory lane together as they beat the crap out each other. Reminds me of Friday night.

I thought the issue was a lot of comme ci, comme ca and left it only at okay on the Global Alert System. Also, these two have fought “to the death” so many times, they probably plan these things out (”Okay, Mr. Sabretooth, I will fight you to the death once again this afternoon but only after we have some scones and tea”). Also, I got the black and white variant because I’m bitchin’ like that.  What do you think, Agent D?

Tony Mourlot: I thought the story was okay. It was nothing spectacular and definitely had a familiar feeling. And that familiarity was something that kept this book from being great for me. As a reader I’ve seen Wolverine and Sabretooth fight many times. There was nothing here that set this fight apart from any of the other times they’ve tangled. Granted, this time Sabretooth is an X-Man but even that was done somewhat before. Loeb takes us on a trip down memory lane with a flashback of a previous encounter of when Sabretooth murdered Silver Fox. With all of Logan’s memories restored, Loeb has an opportunity to dive into the dynamic of this brutal relationship between old foes. I’m hoping he can do something to make this encounter stand out among so many previous battles. What did you think of the art Special Agent JL?

John Lewis: Silver Fox is hot. That is all.

Tony Mourlot: Yeah, she was hot. I liked the art a lot in this issue. I’m very impressed by Simone Bianchi’s work. I enjoyed the stuff I saw him do at DC and was very excited for his run on this title. I love the look his characters have. I just wonder if he’ll be able to keep up with a monthly schedule considering his style. Anything else to add Special Agent MH?

John Lewis: I hope he can, Agent TT.
