From Marvel: “Who is the major Marvel villain throwing Spider-Man and Wolverine through time? FIND OUT HERE! The adventure through time takes a strange turn as Wolverine finds himself face to face with a young pre-“With Great Power” revelation Peter Parker and Spider-Man finds himself in the wilds of Canada face-to-face with a savage young James Howlett! And as if that weren’t enough, we also get the lowdown on The Czar and Big Murder. Jason Aaron and Adam Kubert bring the chickens home to roost, only they’re Robotic Were-Chickens with razor-wattles and lasers mounted on their combs.”

On sale December 29, 2010.

Three and a half months since the last issue.

Forgive me, but when I have to wait that long for an issue, the series better be spectacular. Or in this case, astonishing.

Unfortunately, after being yanked through time for this many issues, I found the villains to be rather two-bit (though the last page is a kick in the pants).

That said, Jason Aaron shakes things up with a blast from Wolverine’s past.

VERY deftly done.

One hopes Aaron will return to that sequence before the series is out.

Anyone else?

Whoa Comusiv! How can you hate on Jason Aaron like that? Have you seen his blog? Just look at how huge his freaking beard is! How can you hate someone who has a gigantic beard like that? Just look at it! Seriously!! =O I am kidding with you Comusiv, you know I love reading your detailed opinions on my favorite comic book character. Seriously it is fans like you that are keeping this community alive. =) First off any Wolverine comic penciled by Adam Kubert makes me weak in the knees. I have a big weak spot for Adam Kubert… Read more »
