    A fairly enjoyable pairing of two of Marvel's biggest stars, that is somewhat undone by the writing's failure to fully explain why these two are even working together. In other words this story hasn't done the leg work it needed to, as in order for Spider-Man to form a partnership with Wolverine that story first has to explain why Peter would turn a blind eye to Logan's little murder spree, and also detail why he would decide to join Logan on this little adventure. The story also fails to address the idea that Logan's not exactly big on having partners, with little to no experience at fighting dirty when the situation calls for it, so the book also needed to take some time to explain why Logan viewed Spider-Man's presence as something he wanted to have around. Now I like the flashback element of the storytelling structure, and there's a couple solid moments of interaction to be found but the underlying problems are a bit difficult to turn a blind eye to.
