Logan: A perfect end to Wolverine on screen

I finally got to see Logan last night, after a couple of false starts over the weekend. And I can say without hesitation, it was worth the wait. This was the Wolverine film that we needed to see when X-Men Origins: Wolverine was released and definitely beats the pants off 2013's The Wolverine. Logan was ...

London Super ComiCon 2014

Had a fantastic morning out at the superb London SuperComicon today. As always (this was my third), the cosplayers were out in force and were really happy to be snapped. The snarling chap above came as Wolverine in his X-Force uniform and was really up for posing with anyone who came his way. A definite ‘A for ...

A new “killable” Logan?

Marvel’s new Wolverine series launches shortly and features a Logan who’s been stripped of his mutant healing factor. Despite what a lot of Wolvie fanboys are screaming, I think this is an excellent plot development and one that gives writers a chance to move the character in new and interesting directions. Over the last few years, Wolverine ...

More X-Men excitement

This was not the trailer I was expecting, but I like it. I like it a lot. Much better than an unending series of Michael-Bay-esque explosions and giant robots (which we all know are going to feature at some point. Sentinels, duh!). Interesting cameos from various characters...I spotted Bishop and Blink, while the Guardian reports ...

It’s like they know I’m coming…

Seriously. I was joking about seeing Japan like Wolverine, but someone out there is way ahead of me. According to the Japan National Tourist Organisation (and they should know, right?), I can "experience Japan like Wolverine". I was just doing some research in preparation for our trip to Tokyo in October and I stumbled across ...

Review: The Wolverine

I went to see "The Wolverine" this afternoon, the sequel to "X-Men Origins: Wolverine". If you want the really quick review, I'd say it was an improvement over "Origins", is pretty slick but a little long and over-complicated. It has several things going for it: We get to see more of Wolverine's past, this time ...

Review: Uncanny Avengers 9

In the recent reshuffling of Marvel's headline titles, Uncanny Avengers was the title that had the best start. The Red Skull using a piece of the dead Prof. Xavier's brain to turn the general public into hate-filled Nazis? Rogue and the Scarlet Witch on the same team and threatening to knock six bells out of ...

It’s got Wolverine! And dinosaurs!

What's not to like? I am *loving* Frank Cho's new Savage Wolverine series. Now on issue two, it just gets better and better. The art is amazing, the story fast-paced. Every page features some image or other which just had me lingering. And did I mention the dinosaurs? Wolverine is in the Savage Land, which ...
