9.21: Wolverine #32

Wow.

Now THIS is what Wolverine has been missing lately. What is "this"? I'm not sure exactly but Wolvering #32 has it.

Milar really got me w/ this one - this is a great, great, uber-cool stand-alone story (sometimes i just love a good one-issue arc). I saw there was a B&W version and a color-ized version on the stands today and opted for the color-ized (trust me though it's still dark; the most recongizable "color" is blood-red).

Milar sets this issue back in Nazi Germany (this guy loves to write Nazi's no?), inside one of the most evil places in recent memory: a concentration camp. This particular camp is somewhat haunted though - by a prisoner who cannot be killed (and subsequently drives each commandant/warden after the next completely insane.

I can't really describe this issue to you (ackkkk!) - but you MUST read it if you're a Wolverine or Milar fan. A++.

PS - I love this new guy Andrews pencils... is he the new reg artist for Wolverine or just for this issue? Boy he captures the mood in this one. I truly hope #32 is a sign of things to come for this title which has been good but a bit "meh" since i've been back (8 months or so?).

He's mainly a cover artist. He had a big stint on Incredible Hulk's covers during Bruce Jones run. He's been around for a good while and worked on Manga Spider-man.

Zilla is not my real name.

I'm from Tejas living in VA. I'm married w/ 2 dogs. I'm an IT security consultant cranking the wheel for a big consulting firm in "real" life.

I watch the History Channel, Nat'l Geo, TLC, Mil Channel, ESPN and NFL Network, CourtTV (forensic files, etc.) and the Cartoon Network (love Genndy T's Samurai Jack and Clone Wars Adventures). My taste in movies: Gladiator, Last Samurai, Braveheart, Godfather, Tarantino (whatever), Kung-Fu (whatever), Westerns, Top Gun, Big Lebowski.

I love the outdoors and bs'ing around w/ my dogs.

In addition to being a comics junkie, i'm also a sports junkie especially when it comes to the Texas Longhorns and the Dallas Cowboys.
