The Best There Is at What He Does
And what he does best isn't very nice. It's been seventeen years since Hugh Jackman first played Wolverine in 2000's X-Men. We're celebrating his (final?) portrayal of the character in Logan, which hits theatres March 3rd. No need to fly into a berserker rage when it's over, just check out these titles, bub. SNIKT.
All-New Wolverine, Vol. 1: The Four Sisters by Tom Taylor, David Lopez, and David Navarrot
Created to be a weapon, Laura fights for redemption in a world that hates and fears her-- sound familiar? If you're interested in learning more about X-23 after the movie, this series is packed full of action, clones, and intrigue.
Old Man Logan, Vol. 1: Berzerker by Jeff Lemire
This sci-fi take on a beaten-down future version of Wolverine is haunting and gritty. It's the perfect tone for a story about a cranky old man with claws. If you appreciate the weird and melancholy aspects of this story, be sure to check out Lemire's other comic book work.
Spider-Man/Deadpool, Vol. 1: Isn't It Bromantic? by Joe Kelly and Ed McGuinness
Pairing Wolverine with Deadpool has become Marvel's favorite thing lately. Here's another unlikely pair that works: the webslinger and the merc with a mouth. Kelly and McGuinness are a classic team that have worked on Deadpool comics since way back in the 1900s.
Even though Patrick Stewart isn't in this one, it's still arguably the best Professor X movie. Watch the beginning of the professor's story to see how far he's come.
