Secret casual Ulm
Anywho, I picked this book out of the throng for literally no other reason then it was the first one I saw and it directly ties in to the new movie. They’re from 1979, and, I would assume, onward and they’re taken from the weekly Hulk Comic that was created around the time the live action series was gaining popularity.
It’s a collection of stories that tell Logan’s origins with the Weapon X project, shed some light on his Japanese love interest and her evil father, (why can’t they just have a well adjusted home for once? There’s some big names involved, including Dave Gibbons and Steve Dillon, and it should be interesting to see what a British take on the Hulk is like. And apparently it’s popular because they keep putting them out.
Without further ado, (I got it right on the first try this time, Gorby! MARVEL WOLVERINE: FIRST CUTS There are 11 different Wolverine books scheduled to come out this month. and the Amazing Spider-Man, who, I’m assuming, won’t be in the new movie.
Which means almost half of what Marvel is putting out into the world of trade paperbacks feature the adamantium clawed, cigar chomping, beer swilling, indestructible mutant, Logan. Most of the hardcores will all ready have this, but if you’re one of the five people who don’t know anything about Wolverine then I guess go buy this book!
Like I said, I don’t think this is canon by any means, but it could be fun and we all need a little fun sometimes. I mentioned last month how I liked the idea of releasing two volumes simultaneously and I stand by that. 1: Born To Kill hits stands the same day in paperback format. 6: WILD GAME For some reason I thought Sweet Tooth was done after Vol. On paper it sounds kind of ho-hum: post-apocalyptic world, boy who kind of looks like a deer so I started thinking like Road Warrior meets A Boy And His Dog, but it’s really much better then that. The guys really good at getting genuine emotion, humor and a decent helping of action and making all of it feel totally right. 18: WHAT COMES AFTER Oh Negan, what have you gotten yourself in to…?
Of course the X-Men help him get revenge and apparently some space pirates as well (again WTF? If you can get past some of those oddities this might be a wild and original ride for fans of the Wolverine! He gets branded a terrorist and has to fight his foster daughter, Hope.
And they have to track down Colossus and figure out why his powers are on the fritz. I swore I wouldn’t do this again this month, but, I have to give a firm and resounding ‘WTF? I’ll admit I’m not very up to date on my Marvel Universe and maybe I’m missing something, but how is this a good idea? Oh well, maybe somebody’s into it – issue 12 hits the news stand soon.
I really don’t have a whole lot to say this month to kick off the new edition of Lee’s Pull List. It’s my birthday in a couple weeks so I’m hoping for some new trades. That and Star Trek, but that’s neither here nor there. All titles are paperback unless otherwise noted and the suggested retail price is just that: suggested.
