    Wolverine takes on the Flower Cartel, a drug cartel that is stealing Krokoan flowers that are meant for medicines and turning them into street drugs. I like how the Pale Girl messes with Wolverine in this and how he gets past it. Then the Vampire Nation is rising and discovers Wolverine's blood gives them special abilities. This story wasn't as strong but Victor Bogdonavic's art is great. He comes over to Marvel with this book after many years prettying up DC.

    For Wolvie’s first ‘proper’ solo book since he came back from the dead (the time they made a big deal of it, not the time since then that nobody but me seemed to bat an eyelid at) this is pretty much Wolverine-by-numbers. It’s not bad but it’s not great either. There’s nothing here we haven’t seen before apart from the thin veneer of Krakoa-stink that just felt like an editorially mandated link to the new Hickman-verse.

    I reviewed all 4 of these issues (well issue 1 has two stories making it 80+ pages long) and I have to say this is the first time I'm REALLY enjoying a Wolverine story. To sum it up it's basically wolverine trying to take down a baddie again. But this time he tries a new tactic. Maybe having his FRIENDS help him instead of always doing something on his own. This makes for new and exciting ideas. It helps that Percy has Logan's voice down-packed and the art is pretty fantastic.

    A good first volume. Strangely I enjoyed the mini story more then the main story. I actually like the format of collecting all the parts of the mini story then doing the same to the main story. The mini story involves someone is stealing the Mutant Island/homeland/fortress Krakoa's biggest export, and using is to make drugs in the human world. They have also made it personal for Wokverine. How far will Wolverine go for payback? The other bit of payback he get is actually pretty funny. In the man s A good first volume. Strangely I enjoyed the mini story more then the main story.

What could bring Omaga Red to Krakoa begging for sanctuary? Also how does Wolverine fit in their plans? Part of the reason I did not enjoy this story as much is for me here Wolverine seems to have list his edge. He just seems to walk into one trap after another. All in all a good volume. I can't wait to see what happens next to Wolverine and it is pulling me into the other X titles as well.

    Wolverine's solo series as part of Dawn of X is piloted by Benjamin Percy, who also covers Logan's adventures over in X-Force, so at least there's not a lot of push and pull between those two books. That said, this volume is...even, to say the least. The first half of this volume deals with the Flower Cartel, yet another shady organisation targetting the X-Men, this time so that they can steal the Krakoan flowers that have revolutionised the mutants' world.

The first half of this volume deals with the Flower Cartel, yet another shady organisation targetting the X-Men, this time so that they can steal the Krakoan flowers that have revolutionised the mutants' world. It's a decent story, but compared to the other shadowy cabals introduced as part of Dawn of X, this one lacks a bit of punch. The other half pits Wolverine against vampires, which should be a fun time, but Logan feels like he's on the back foot for the entirety of the proceedings, so it's hard for the story to gain any traction. He's almost none the wiser by the time it's over as well, which doesn't help. The artwork's pretty great though. I'm always wary when I see a Kubert on a monthly book because they're all notoriously slow, but Adam Kubert's issues are as solid as I've ever seen them. Viktor Bogdanovic picks up the latter half, and I find his style a bit more impressive to be honest, kind of like a less refined Greg Capullo (I'm sure I've used that comparison in the past). Wolverine has some top talent drawing it, even if the story doesn't always keep up. Dawn Of X doesn't have many duds, but Wolverine's first arc isn't as good as the other books around it. It's not bad, but it doesn't really distinguish itself from any of the other books, and there are certain story elements that could swap in almost any other X-Man and the book would be basically the same. A bit more individuality and a bit more direction is needed for this one to climb to the top of the pack.

    Solid Wolverine stories with a very old-school feel. First tale is grounded in the world of Krakoa, but concerns drug deals and drug dealers, a sick little girl and an uneasy partnership.

Maybe not a bad intro to the character for new readers?

    Better than I expected! Percy makes it clear up front that Logan is unsure about how safe and "good" things are on Krakoa so he's being cautious. Since he's in charge of protecting the island, he decides to take care of a few threats on his own, and in his own "classic" style. It's nice to see a little of the "old" Wolverine again. The best part is Logan's general attitude to everybody which goes back to the "I don't give a @#$!, I'm doing what I want to do." One of which is what he does to Magn Better than I expected!

The stories are bloody when it comes to the battles, not quite rated R but pushing the Teen rating for sure. In the five issues included, there are three stories, at least two are setup for future tales. Percy also examines Wolverine's mental state, not only referring to previous memory issues, but also talks as if something happened recently. Not sure what he's referring to, maybe his death? Adam Kubert's art is still pretty good, although I think someone else is inking it to save him some time. Kubert switches off with someone else who has a similar, yet acceptable style. Looking forward to more.

    This story is essentially an extension of Percy’s X-Force which isn’t a bad thing, I love Percy’s X-Force. The story focuses on Wolverine going after a drug cartel that is taking the Krakoan medicine and selling it on the black market. It’s cool seeing Wolverine find his role within the newly established Krakoa. The art in here is absolutely stunning, Adam Kubert never fails. His art looks especially nice with the coloring used in this series.

    I've enjoyed Wolverine as a character, but never enough to follow him in his own book. With Jonathan Hickman's Dawn of X relaunch, I decided to give it a try, and it's been fairly enjoyable so far.

Neither of these stories is resolved in this volume, and it's a bit strange how both of these seemingly unrelated storylines are being developed at the same time, but then, I suppose that's a bit how life goes as well. One storyline doesn't patiently wait for another to end before starting its course. Of the two, I'm finding the Flower Cartel storyline to be more engaging, as I always thought that Dracula's involvement with the X-Men was somewhat cheesy. Omega Red is a crucial part of the vampire storyline though, and I do really enjoy him as a villain, so as long as he's a part of it I'll probably be on board. Wolverine's inner monologue is pretty much what you'd expect, though I do appreciate that they're trying to move him in more optimistic directions with the advent of the sovereign nation of Krakoa. I particularly enjoyed how one issue in this volume involved a bunch of victims of mutant violence who joined a hate/support group to cope with their trauma, though I wish author Benjamin Percy had explored that idea a little further. Andy Kubert's art on the Flower Cartel storyline is phenomenal as one might expect, especially in the opening pages depicting the aftermath of a violent scene in the Alaskan wilderness. I was unfamiliar with Viktor Bogdanovic's art on the vampire story, but it was very well suited to that dark subject matter. Benjamin Percy has a good grasp on the character and tends to steer clear of his caricaturistic dialog that all too often turns the character into a joke. I don't know how long I'll realistically read a Wolverine solo book, but it's off to a more interesting start than I would have expected, so I'll stick with it for now.

    I say this in every single review, but I'm not really a fan of X-Men and I wasn't invested here. It felt like there was a lot of shock value in place of the story.

Even with his constant presence in both X-Men and X-Force titles, there are some things that are best left to Logan on his own.... Highlights: - It is discovered that the "Flower Cartel" has been making a potent street drug from Krakoan leaves. Wolverine and some of the other members of X-Force head out to investigate and shut down the operation but Logan comes under the spell of the drug, which puts him under the control of the cartel leader, The Pale Girl. She, through mental manipulation, gets Wolverine to kill his other teammates (not the end of the world due to Krakoan resurrection technology). Out from the influence, Logan borrows Magneto's helmet (blocks all psychic attacks and mind control) and grabs most of the Marauders and takes them down for good. - Omega Red shows up through the gates of Krakoa for the first time and has a larger amount of blood on him. Wolverine immediately assumes the worst and follows the path of carnage. Ironically, it leads back to a rise in the Vampire Nation. As Logan begins to hunt them, he teams up first with a holy warrior of sorts, and then with 3 vampires who are tired of the vampiric infection inside them. Turns out that Omega Red was working with them and he's on the run, giving Logan something to persue in the next Volume. Overall, glad to see Logan back in his own title. Feel like this isn't so directly connected to the major plotlines being covered in the other titles. AND... when Logan operates, it's always a little darker and bloodier than most other Marvel titles. Recommend.

    4.5 stars One of the best Dawn of X volumes I’ve read, with incredibly eye-grabbing art and two dueling story threads about a drug cartel and a clan of vampires that are both a lot of fun. I also loved the slight overlap with Marauders and X-Force. The writing overall reminds me a lot of Batman, with Wolverine as the distrustful, emotionally-conflicted loner who’s constantly in his own head or trying to make up for a past sins he’s tormented by.

    Bought and read as single issues, I think I finished up around Oct. Wolverine. He's the best he is at what he does, which is act gruff and a loner and snikt his claws out and get into epic, knock-down, throw-someone-out-the-window fights. And that's what he does here. We've seen this all before. It's fun here, but there's nothing special about it.

    I've seen some comments that the newest VOL of Wolverine doesn't have a strong basis in the Hickman Krakoa universe, and that's crazy: it's all about Krakoa. There are two main stories here, one focusing on the repercussions of the medicines that Krakoa is exporting to the world, the other on its amnesty policy. We also get a nice crossover with X-Force (also by Percy). The stories are generally interesting and brutal. Percy even manages to write a vampire story that doesn't make me wince.

    Na Wolverinovu sólovku čekáme od roku 2014 (a na pořádnou sólovku od dob Jasona Aarona). Docela mě tedy vyděsilo, když jako scénáristu ohlásili Percyho, kterej píše příšernýho Green Arrowa, co vychází česky. A... zázrak se nekoná. Percy píše těžce generický příběh, kde někdo krade mutantům drogy a Wolvie to musí vyřešit. Tisíckrát viděná nuda a stupidní berličky (mutanti jsou nesmrtelní, takže je můžeme vesele zabíjet). Za zmínku stojí akorát vedlejší příběh s upíry z prvního čísla. Mám za sebou Na Wolverinovu sólovku čekáme od roku 2014 (a na pořádnou sólovku od dob Jasona Aarona).

    I know, I know, I was worried three X-Men books would be too much of a good thing and here I am on a fourth but wow, they’re all fun! And the art here from both Adam Kubert and Viktor Bogdanovic is great, with both artists’ styles complimenting each other and providing me unified aesthetic for the book. Hickman is obviously the big boss when it comes to X-Men but between this book and X-Force if Benjamin Percy is on an X-series I’m gonna have to check it out.

    Pairs very well with X-Force. There are two storylines going on here across the five issues. One is about a drug cartel messing with Mutant property and is very interesting. And another is about an old enemy of Logan's coming to Krakoa and vampires. That one is fun. Worth a read if you like Wolverine solo titles as this fits in perfectly with that. What might entice you further is the fantastic art from Adam Kubert and Viktor Bogdanovic. Pairs very well with X-Force. There are two storylines going on here across the five issues.

    This is a pretty dense book, with a lot of story packed into just five issues (at one point, I though I was on issue four and it turned out I had just started issue two!), but neither of the two stories in here has an ending. Both threats introduced/re-introduced in this collection remain at large (without Logan making all that much headway, honestly). Still, it’s good to see Logan back to doing what he does best.

In a lot of ways this is same old same old, but it's Wolverine so it's fine. Got some 30 Days of Night vibe off of some of the vampire story, but I think I liked the CIA Drug stuff better.

    A fairly average tome. Percy has a very good handle on the Wolverine character, and how he would react to the mutant paradise of Krakoa, but the adventures he goes on are pretty rote and quite forgettable.
