Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

Well Well Well. The Hunt for Red October; I mean Wolverine. Not too bad at all. I was actually pretty shocked how much I liked it. Not because of the writer or art team because Charlie Soule is killing it on Vader and Daredevil right now, but because these quick tie-in books are normally there to drum up extra sales and spark interest in big events to come but normally aren’t too good. Well, you got me again Marvel! And this one was great!

We open this story with Reavers coming to crack open the adamantium statue of Wolverine, which if you remember has Wolverine burned alive inside without his healing ability.... cause he’s dead.... remember? Geez, it’s been so long since that story now. Anyway, the Reavers head out to this shack in the Canadian wilderness to cut that bad boy open and take the dead corpse of Wolverine for some serious bank... ya know what I mean?

Things haven’t been going well for the Reavers lately. So, they really need this score. But Colossus, Nightcrawler, Kitty Pride, Firestar ( from the 70’s Spidey Cartoon), and Storm came and put the smack down on those Reavers. One of the Reavers cracks that puppy open to find out that Wolverine isn’t even in there. So, they got beat down for nothing!

Turns out; Kitty phased Logan out of the statue and they buried him instead. But when Kitty goes back to Logan’s grave, she has this feeling that he’s not buried there anymore. So, she gets the crew to dig him up and sure enough, she was right! So, where in the world is Carmine Sandiego.... I mean Wolverine?

Kitty first talks to Daredevil for help, which I thought was weird but I’m not a huge Daredevil or Wolverine guy so maybe it works...Next up, Kitty gets help from Iron Man and he assembles his Avengers team of Luke Cage, Jessica Jones, and Spider-Man to go track their old teammate down. However, we find out that the Reaver that got away informs Lady Deathstrike of the situation and she to is going to hunt him down. And of course, the X-men team led by Kitty Pride will be tracking him down too. This story was a pretty dang good story and if I learned anything from this experience it should be that I should trust the writers I like. I saw Charlie was on the book and I shouldn’t have questioned it. Pick it up guys and gals.

Bits and Pieces:

It’s fun, action-packed, and loaded more than a baked potato with tons of the classic characters we love without all the nasty sour cream on top!
