    Jason Aaron really gets Wolverine. This was a really solid read, even if the story of one man versus an evil rich company doesn't sound like the most inspiring choice — Aaron makes it work either way. The book is really violent and filled with awesomely crafted action sequences, the writing is crisp and straight to the point, the book reads really quickly and it ends on an intriguing cliffhanger. Jason Aaron rarely disappoints — I am definitely digging Wolverine: Weapon X.

There's also a massacre in South America, someone brandishing very similar claws... Personally, I found the intro on the Subway rather humourous, but not in such a way that it takes away from the seriousness of the character, in fact, it makes him easier to relate to in my mind. A great start to what is probably a great first Volume according to the reliable views of Sam and Mike, who both agree on this one. Well worth checking out for newbies and seasoned veterans both!

    Aaron's got a helluvan ear for Wolverine dialogue, and a talent for writing stories with no heroes and lots of twists & turns. What's showing that Aaron isn't just a one-trick amateur is that he can also write good supporting characters here. Maverick is solid, the HAMMER agent is sharp. It's like a well-rounded story or something. I really look forward to more of Aaron's work in the Marvel U. Too bad the art isn't better than "serviceable" - but it might have more to do with the inker than the pe Aaron's got a helluvan ear for Wolverine dialogue, and a talent for writing stories with no heroes and lots of twists & turns.

Pretty good with the kinetics and the faces though, which are where most bad artists fall down. The expressions are expressive, and the characters are hard to confuse.

    Well that was boring. I'm definitely not a fan of Aaron's Wolverine, who's like Jack Kerouac here.

    A new line of super soldiers made with the same specs as Wolverine has appeared with a few new additions, mainly lightsaber-like claws, and seem intent on replacing the current US army and waging unrelenting war on the rest of the world. The only one to stop them is of course everyone's favourite hairy Canuck, Wolverine himself. Snikt. Jason Aaron brings his blend of brutal action and fast paced storytelling to this character and captures his essence completely and perfectly.

Jason Aaron brings his blend of brutal action and fast paced storytelling to this character and captures his essence completely and perfectly. Thankfully there's no backstory so those who are familiar with the character, like me, can enjoy a new story straight from the word go. Aaron takes Wolverine into the jungles of South America and we get a sort of Predator-esque story as Logan hunts down these new super soldiers one by one. The first book ends on a pretty good cliffhanger as the reader finds out who's behind releasing the specs for Weapon X to a new organisation and sets the stage for Vol 2 nicely. There's also a two-shot short included which addresses Wolverine's large amount of appearances in several comics recently called "A Mile in My Moccasins" which was very funny, done in a style with a panel a day and a long conversation with Spidey in a bar. Ron Garney's art is rough and sketchlike as his artwork always is but suits the rough-hewn character well. It's enjoyable to read because Wolverine's in the hands of a capable writer who understands the character. All in all, a promising first volume in what's sure to be an excellent series. Looking forward to Volume 2!

    Because he started to be a rising star when I was cutting down my Marvel addiction, I haven't read many of Jason Aaron's works at The House of Ideas, mistake which I plan to solve thanks to Marvel Unlimited. With solid, sometimes superb, art by Ron Garney, one of my favorite artists, this is a cool, action packed Wolverine book, with a story that goes beyond the usual chores in superhero comics. I look forward to continue reading Aaron's run @Marvel.

    This was the first Wolverine comic I've ever read. It was very interesting. I learned a lot about Wolverine's past and the details that make his story so rich.

    After hearing so much about Jason Aaron, reading his blogs, and so forth, I realized I had not read anything by him. This was an ebay score and boy was it disappointing. What followed in these pages was a terrible rehash of just about every wolverine cliche. I understand these "new" series and reboots are built for new readers, (SPOILER ALERT....but not really if you have ever read any Wolverine) ...but all we got was Wolverine taking down a huge corp that has recently bought the Weapon X secret After hearing so much about Jason Aaron, reading his blogs, and so forth, I realized I had not read anything by him.

I understand these "new" series and reboots are built for new readers, (SPOILER ALERT....but not really if you have ever read any Wolverine) ...but all we got was Wolverine taking down a huge corp that has recently bought the Weapon X secrets and has created a bio-engineered army of "Weapon Xs" with laser claws and nanite healers in their blood. But wolvie takes em all down. The end. No character development on any front, no new twist in this overly worn and haggard story. Aaron throws in his staple vomits, crude gestures, and insinuated violence. END SPOILER In the end, I see why the Weapon X series got canceled. I haven't lost hope in Aaron as a writer. But I might steer clear of his corporate work for hire and see what his creator owned works are like (SCALPED, THE OTHER SIDE).

    A Mile in My Moccasins (Wv2 #73-74). Impressively, this great story is one part humor, mocking how Wolverine appears everywhere, and one part serious, looking into the psychology of why he might do that. Another of Aaron's best. [5/5]. Adamantium Men (WX #1-5). It's great to see Melita Garner introduced, as she's been a crucial character in most of Wolverine's stories from here to his "Death".

    With Logan's son Daken taking over the Wolverine title (now called "Dark Wolverine"), Marvel started a new series featuring Logan called "Wolverine: Weapon X." This volume collects the first five issues of that series and the last two issues of "Wolverine" before Daken took the reins. In terms of storytelling, the Wolverine series meandered over the course of the past couple of years. Some of the stories were solid, some weren't.

    I needed something like this: mature action with a great lead character and beautiful artwork. You can't really expect too much depth from an action comic, but what it provides is a good story with plenty of fighting, cool characters, some planning and gallons of blood. Maverick brings Wolverine proof that Blackguard, a private military contractor, has aquired the documentation from the Weapon X program that created Wolverine. The latter intends to shut them down single-handedly. (view spoiler)[U I needed something like this: mature action with a great lead character and beautiful artwork.

It’s hardly essential reading or groundbreaking comic book-ing, but it is accessible and fun superhero entertainment, and if one wants to read a comic book about Wolverine, this trade seems like as good a place to start as any, and a lot better a place to start than most. Despite the familiar sub-title, Aaron moves forward rather than looking back, and takes a stab at relevance by having one of Marvel’s evil corporations buy the plans for making Weapon X-es to use in their security firm. He takes an even bigger stab at over the top action that makes the recent Wolvie film seem restrained. These new Weapon X-es have laser claws and guns that shoot bullets that give you cancer, and Wolverine’s plans for taking on the bad guys involve such subtleties and crashing his motorcycle headfirst into a limo and cutting people with his claws as he flies through the windshield and out the back window and bringing an attack helicopter to a claw fight. For his part, Garney does the work of his career, seemingly having made such progress in his work since the last time I encountered it at any great length that I hardly recognized it as his work. There’s an even better story following the initial arc, although it’s more poorly communicated through the art (Adam Kubert illustrates it, and his layouts are choppy and hard to read, with overly showy, over-designed captions calling to much attention to themselves). Aaron goes a bit meta, showing a few weeks in the life of Wolverine, who had two Marvel Universe ongoings, is a member of various X-teams and the New Avengers, and can be relied on to show up in a few random one-shots and make around a dozen guest-appearances every month. It’s funny to see what a few days in the poor guy’s life are like but, in the second half, Aaron finds an in-story reason for Wolverine’s business, and ties it into recent events in the hero’s fictional life in a way that make it almost seem to matter. It’d be a stretch to call it poignant, but it is clever as hell.

    I've always liked Wolverine as a character and I also really enjoy Aaron's work on Scalped so when I saw this for a low price I thought it would be fun to give it a shot. I don't read many superhero comics because continuity is intimidating and I've only found a few characters I really enjoyed reading about (Hellboy and Daredevil for example). Thankfully, Weapon X is perfect for people who haven't read a Wolverine comic before. I was able to pick it up and jump right in.

The story is like any good action movie except Wolverine is cooler than Stallone or Schwarzenegger. There are some great lines of dialogue sprinkled throughout and my favorite part was Wolverine's musings on life and death. He's someone whose had a hard life and it is difficult not to respect that. There were a few characters that seemed to be cliches and were very flat, but I can look past that because this is essentially a self-contained comic with limited space. I won't be rushing out to buy more Wolverine, but I would like to read the rest of the Weapon X series and maybe even beyond that.

    Jason Aaron does something very interesting with Wolverine, he makes a series that is for the most part, stand alone. The book doesn't rely on an overarching story arc nor is it building to some sort of finish, instead it's just telling different Wolverine stories to people. More intriguing is the fact that each trade feels like a movie or series of short stories about the same character, but that's all it shares, no plot points bleed over into the next story.

The other concept I found interesting is Aaron's use of panels, I was fascinated by the way he used his panels to make some point or portray action or what have you. All in all the book itself is really well done and I want use what Jason Aaron does here in my own work.

While Ron Garney's art is beautiful and Jason Aaron's dialogue is fantastic, the overall story doesn't seem fresh at all.

    A fine wolverine story, however I expected a little more. James discovers someone has started weapon x back up and he isn't to happy. Wolverine laser clones are born and the fight is on. The more I think about the story the more I think its too simple. Sometimes simple works great but I wanted more twists with this story it was just very straight forward.

    I was recommended this, even though they knew I didn't really want Marvel/DC Superhero recommendations. I'm definitely glad they did, and having Jason Aaron, writer of Scalped, was a factor in my decision for sure. It's made me want to go back and read other Wolverine comics, but I might just end up disappointed. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone slightly interested in Wolverine, and once you read it I'm sure you'll be picking up the others like I did.

    Not quite on par with Scalped but better than his Ghost Rider stuff. It's Wolverine, and JA did a great job with it. I'm interested in seeing where he takes this.

    This was a very good story, but the art leaves something to be desired (it particularly bothers me how Wolverine seems to lack eyes in so many pictures). Despite that, this is a very tight espionage story, with a dark and gritty tone, rather what you would hope for with a story focusing on the Weapon X program.

    An enjoyable Wolverine romp. I didn't care for the bad guys though, I always thought making wolverine what he was only possible because of his healing factor, and making a bunch of Adamantium men didn't work for me.

    A fun romp of a book. Aaron really gets the character in a very different way from any previous writers, and he's great to read. Garney's art is so-so, but he does know how to do some great action sequences. Good stuff.
