If you were looking for a comic book to give a tween reader (9-14 years?), you couldnt go wrong with Wolverine: First Class; in fact, youd go all the way right with this title. Writer Fred Van Lente reminds me of Chris Claremont in his ability to write single-issue X-Men stories that offer character interplay and personality right along side a good fight sequence that puts those mutant powers on display. The art is good (although I wish the coloring didnt provide the texture and detail that a good ink job once did); Andrea Di Vito is good storyteller, but its her excellent graphic design skills that really propel this story. Van Lente and De Vito make this a Wolverine comic book series that I want to read all the time. Read Full Review
