All-New Wolverine #35

By: Tom Taylor, Ramon Rosanas
Released: May 16, 2018

• The world has been saved. Its people, never happier. The Wolverine should be retired, enjoying her time ruling Madripoor and living life with her sister.
•  But instead Laura is in the last bastion of cruelty: Latveria. She has one more mission: One person to save, one person to kill.
•  It all comes down to this.

I never cared about Venom that much to pick up the main book. I've tried the Remender's and Bunn's runs in TPBs after they were done, I've tried the Costa's run to no avail , as it was awful at times. But seeing that this time it's going to be run by Cates and Stegman, it was a no brainer to try at least the first couple issues, as these two are some of my favourites in the industry.

It's a good story by Soule and it's got mystery but this isn't what i had in mind. Logan was barely there. The art was nice and complimented the stories.
Ultimately 6 dollars for a tease is straight gangsta! I'm sad to say i can't buy 12 more issues to follow the story. Love you Logan but i can't afford this.

Kalaoui - May 4, 2018

Yes you're right they will be 3.99 but my pull list is at max capacity around 30 a month and that gets expensive real quick if i decide to follow 4 more series to catch the story. I wish they had one series twice a month. On top of that i'm following Infinity coutdown and Champions and those will have extra tie ins........at some point my wallet says enough is enough lol

Fun book!! Serious when it needs to be and plenty ridiculous in a Horn of Doom kinda of way!! Duggan makes it all mostly work from PymTron's encounter with Warlock and the Silver Surfer to the GOTG's fight with the Warbringer. The art is fantastic! While both Kuder and Hawthorne are great artists, the mix of the two is just mildly off. Still loving this mini ride and can't wait for the next one.

I really enjoyed this fresh start. First and foremost the art looks really great in this book. It looks and feels just like the premiere book of marvel. If you only read one book to follow the entire Marvel universe then you should be reading this book (Except that there is no mutant on this team). The stakes are high and the threat feels worthy of an Avengers book. The book balances well between more

The conflict has ended and this issue plants the seeds for where the many heroes will go going forward. This is done while also looking back on the past of the Avengers. It gives you the idea that there are many cool things in store for the title (or titles). I have to give the story credit on celebrating the Avengers by using their history. The art looks really good and does a nice job. Again it more
