Wolverine is still struggling with the fact he has become mortal and lost his healing powers. Nonetheless, he is seeking council with the grim reaper himself, which is supposed to set him on his way again, at least if he ever walks out alive. Nonetheless, whatever the outcome may be, Logan is determined to go and rescue Pinch and her daughter, and he might just realize, for the first time in his life, that going in solo might not be a great plan, and that friends are forgiving, if you open up to them.

Wolverine #008 Banner

While Wolverine is consulting the grim reaper, things are taking a turn for the worse now the Sabretooth is in possession of the mysterious looking orb. After a short while it becomes clear he tends to use it as a weapon, and he is convinced that the item alone can reshape the entire world, making it a paradise for the strong and killing off the weak. Nonetheless, Wolverine is slowly learning that he’ll need the help of his friends if he wishes to come out on top of this rather dramatic situation, as he has been in too many fights on his own, and has lost all of them as of late. This time losing would mean that Pinch, and her daughter would lose their lives, which is simply a risk he cannot, and will not take.

Paul Cornell takes things up a notch or two, as it’s clear the mysterious device is a weapon that might just damage the entire world. You still won’t get a lot of information, and the short arc about the grim reaper is probably more confusing than it is clear, you’ll still enjoy the absurdity of this part of the story.

The illustrations follow the same style as they did in the previous omnibus, with the first part of this one having more rounded features and being overall very slick, while the second portion of this bundle resorted to a grittier and more rugged style with thicker lines and somewhat harsher facial features. The coloring relies a lot on the shading, and looks quite crisp.


Wolverine #008 is getting closer to the tilting point of this story arc, and we loved every page of it. While the information is still spread scarcely, you’ll slowly be able to put together the pieces of the broken down puzzle that is Logan, otherwise known as Wolverine. This issue will slowly drive you to the edge of your seat with the action that is unfolding, we just hope you haven’t fallen off before you reach the ending.
