The Rundown: Wolverine’s quest for personal peace will bring him into the path of a dangerous old foe.
After his latest mission for Krakoa, Wolverine is looking for some peace. Unable to find it on the island, Wolverine has set up a secret portal to a secluded bar in the pacific northwest where he can go unnoticed among it patrons.
Unfortunately, he’ll find no peace there when a murder points directly to the mutant and the rest of the people in the bar reveal their dark connections to Logan and his past. To make matters worse, the killer reveals himself and tells Logan he has a darker purpose for him.
The Story: Benjamin Percy delivers an intense and brilliantly dark tale for Logan in this issue. Not only does it brim with intensity and mystery, but it builds to a great conclusion that promises more darkness to come. The characters are interesting and the slow build up of the plot serves to make the reveals and overall story more engaging. There is a small logic issue in the story where fans of the character would wonder how Wolverine could be taken so easily, but that doesn’t distract too much from a good story that showcases Logan’s desire for some personal peace in a peaceful world he doesn’t trust.
The Art: Viktor Bogdanovic brings some beautiful, dark and intense imagery to the art in this issue. The hard edge, highly detailed style is perfect for this story and these characters.
