Still not a big fan of the art in this series. You'd be hard pressed to find a panel where someone doesn't have their mouth open. In one panel Logan and Sabertooth are in a helicopter. The next they're on the ground with no evidence that time has passed. There's another instance where everyone is eating inside Logan's cabin (There's literally a panel of Victor Creed eating a big sandwhich. That actually happens) and then Logan gets mad and suddenly they're outside, yards away from the house. Later,Magneto throws a tire at Wolverine, but unless there was some kind of metal in that tire it makes no sense at all. Just like this whole series. Read Full Review
