Review: ALL-NEW WOLVERINE VOL. 1: THE FOUR SISTERS by Tom Taylor

wolverine-1To be fair, I haven’t read any of the original Wolverine graphic novels, so I didn’t really know what I was getting into with a female version of the iconic Marvel character. As played by Hugh Jackman, Wolverine has consistently been my favorite part of the X-Men on screen. So I had high hopes for this new incarnation of the superhero.

In the end, I’m not really sure what I got. A female, next-generation Wolverine to be sure. But also potentially four more of them? While all of the characters were differentiated beautifully, their backstory was never explained to my satisfaction. Therefore, the emotional impact of the relationship between all of the women was lacking.

I’m still intrigued enough by the premise to desperately hope that the young girl in the upcoming film Logan is the cinematic version of X-23. While I probably won’t be picking up the next volume in this series, I will definitely be at the movie theater opening weekend.

Rating: 3 (out of 5) stars. Cross-posted to Amazon and Goodreads.
