The Bowery, 1937. Jim Logan, the fiercest knife expert in New York, runs a seedy detective agency called "LOGAN & LOGAN"...along with his useless, halfwit brother, Dog. They're the best they are at what they do. But when a swanky dame named Mariko Yashida struts into the office, she opens up a world of hurt for Logan, forcing him to revisit his painful, bloody past. The latest in the Marvel Noir series, WOLVERINE NOIR reunites the acclaimed WOLVERINE team of Stuart Moore (IRON MAN) and C.P. Smith (The Programme). Parental Advisory …$3.99

    All-in-all, it's a fun read but I dont think it'll be the best in the Marvel Noir line. I'd recommend checking out Wolverine: Noir if you've been following the new Noir line. And if you haven't, it's still a solid read. Read Full Review

    Judging by the obvious, redundant and uninspired way Marvel's most recent Noir miniseries have played out, I half expect them to roll out miniseries with names like Thor: Sword and Sorcery, Nick Fury: Spy Thriller, and Iron Fist: Kung Fu. Read Full Review

    Stuart Moore and C.P. Smith both try to raise "Wolverine Noir" above the absurd exercise in combining two genres for no reason other than 'just because.' Fans of Wolverine won't get anything here that they can't get elsewhere -" and the same goes for fans of noir. "Wolverine Noir" is a case where the end product is less than the sum of its parts. Do yourself a favor and just go read "The Maltese Falcon" since this pale imitation with elements of "Origin" thrown in isn't worth it. Read Full Review

    Cover - 6.0 Story - 7.5 Art - 7.0 Color - 6.5 Lettering - 7.0 A shocking Noir story with Wolverine as a a down on his luck loser detective. Moore has given a legit Noir Narrative and i enjoyed it. C p Smith Art is really dark and dirty prefect for this story ..
