Wolverine #316 - Covenant, Part 3 Review

Wolverine #316 Review


Wolverine and Elsa Bloodstone discover the Floating Castle!

With the Covenant hot on their trail, can Wolverine keep the Deaming Maiden alive? Or will Elsa betray him?

Meanwhile, Melita makes a discovery that will change Wolverine – and her – forever!

Cover/Solicit - 3/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the solicit/cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the solicit/cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 3/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 4/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 4/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 3/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?

Verdict - 3.3

- If I wasn't already reading Wolverine this cover wouldn't really entice me to me want to pick it up.  While the cover is nice I don't care for it that much. The art in this book goes from one extreme to another, while a lot of it looks perfectly fine, I can't get over Wolverine drawn with a huge face and nose. It almost looks like they drew him like a neanderthal. The Wolverine comics have been on an odd run lately, the stories are convoluted and out there. I enjoy a non-super book and for example Hawkeye #4 - The Tape, 1 of 2 was great, and I have even enjoyed some of Wolverines' other solo stories, so far this one has just been so-so. We continue the story from last issue of the Dreaming Maiden and Logan trying to find her. We also have Melita Garner teaming up with the Angels (a group of Wolverine's exes) to help rescue him. The issue has it's moments but overall it was just OK. This arc is almost over and hopefully we will get something better in Marvel NOW!
