Wolverine #4 Review

by Ryan.L on August 21, 2020

Writer: Benjamin Percy
Artist: Viktor Bogdanovic
Publisher: Marvel

Things start to slow down for the Wolverine. Consequences for stealing Magneto's helmet among other things as he is judged by the Quiet Council.

I have to say I really enjoyed this issue a lot. I've never been a big fan of Wolverine, but Benjamin Percy has really been delivering such an engaging story. This issue the pace slows down a lot but the excitement and intrigue is still dialled up. Percy is really taking us on a path of discovery, as Wolverine tries to figure out how he fits into this new world. Wolverine has so many demons from years and years of getting blood on his hands and in this issue it comes back to haunt him somewhat. That really is going to take a toll on his already damaged psyche. He really struggles with just letting himself be happy. Though after reading this issue it looks like someone else is going to help him to remain unhappy.

Rather than being a book all about action and what Wolverine does best, Percy succeeds at diving more into the psychology of Wolverine and what he truly wants in life. For that I've found myself warming to the character and looking forward to the following issues is this series.

It also helps that the art in this series is outstanding. This issue especially manages to enhance the subtleties of the story. Since this story has a slower pace and a bit more of a creep factor to it, the art just helps to enhance that story on every level. 

Overall this book continues to deliver an exceptional story. It's so engaging that you really get pulled right in. If you haven't picked it up yet, I highly recommend that you do.
