    Wrong title for file

    The title, cover and description given for this are for an entirely different book. The book that is loaded when purchsed is actually wolverine: origins (note the "s") and started in 2006 (thank you wikipedia). Figured it should be noted for reference. That being said, I was suprised to find out that it was a different book, yet not entirely disappointed seeing as I've enjoyed that series as well.

    Its alright the story does have potentional

    To be honest I thought the begining of this was a little odd, but as i began to push threw I found that the story did begin to pick up. One thing I should mention though is that it is kind of short.

    Different, but good

    I liked the art and the story. It was good to read and did the character justice. It kept the suspense, and was written differently than a regular comic, which helped for better art. I liked it very much.

    A good begining

    Its what the origins movie was (very, VERY loosely) based off of. But where the movie fell flat, this story is compeling, and much less about blowing things up and getting metal claws, and more about James Howlett, before he became either Wolverine or Logan. Really liked it, even if it got a little slow.

    Mandatory title to the origin of Wolverine

    PRetty fantastic graphic novel. Tells about Wolverine's origin,which has been a great Marvel mystery and other interesting facts as how Wolverine got his name and other interesting facts about the x-man. If you are a big wolverine fan or just want to know where he comes from, and more about him, this book is one you need to read. I loved adding it to my collection.

    Wonderful ***** But...

    Unfortunately now I have more questions about his past then I did before! What is the connection with Wolverine's mother and Thomas Logan? Did his older brother really die? Or was he just sent away? How did Elizabeth get the 3 claw scar? What's up with the interesting resemblance of Thomas Logan and the Wolverine we know now? Stay tuned folks, maybe someone can answer all these and more!

    AWESOME!!!!!

    I have been reading Wolverine since about 1989 or 90. Like many other Wolverine fans out threre the origin question has always lingered in the back of my mind. The art and the story of this comic are absolutely awesome! Truly great job Marvel!

    Excellent Piece of Work

    This was an awsome piece of work. The art was great and the story was superb. An excellent novel that I could not put down at all. It's plot drags you in and keeps your attention until the very end. One of the best!

    The Wait Is Over

    With amazing art by Andy Kubert, and an amazing story by Paul Jenkins. This beautiful peice will pull you into the world it has made. Fans of the X-Men will not want to miss the chance to see the truth of Wolverine. But good luck finding the hardcover.

    Simply Superb!

    This is a must-read comic for all! I read the entire thing immediately after I purchased it (couldn't put it down). It is easily one of the best stories that I have encountered. It was amazing to dive into the mystery of Wolverine's origin! Any X-men fan or anyone curious about his past MUST read this. I absolutely loved this story, and will undoubtedly read it many more times... I cherish this in my collection of books as highly as the classic novels that stand upon my shelves. Wonderful!! Simply superb.
