    This is the kind of mini-series that has you wishing it was ongoing. A perfect merging of writer and artist, character and story, and each strong issue has added up to a wonderful cohesive whole. "Wolverine and Jubilee" is the best mini-series I've read this year. It's also a wonderful promise of Immonen as a true powerhouse in superhero comics, and a the promise of a rehabilitated Jubilee, a character I haven't cared about in a very long time, but am seriously interested in now.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Apr 26, 2011

    As someone with no real investment in the main characters, this issue still comes on strong, with Phil Noto's art telling a strong story, and Immonen making their banter worth reading. The issue raises the question of whether Jubilee, now immortal, might be able to act on the vague sexual tension between herself and the effectively immortal Wolverine, which is a question that I find a little disturbing. I guess it's just the fact that I've always read them as a big brother/fatherly mentor-type thing, not a romantic pairing, but I suppose that a May/December romance between two effective immortals is pretty compelling as a plot hook. (Is she 21 yet?) It doesn't make me want to go out and buy up all the Jim Lee-era X-books and devour their previous adventures, but the story manages to stay pretty self-contained, and at $2.99 is priced about right for the amount of story within. I think that 90′s fans of the teaming will be well-served, and I have to say it's not a bad issue overall Read Full Review
