Going Home


This series has been very inconsistent since it started, and although Killable has shown some promise, it has yet to pay off on that promise. I do however still have hope in the series, but unless the series gets a lot better soon I may start to loose some of that hope.

Plot

Wolverine and Kitty take a trip to the Howlett estate in Canada.

Review

This was a good issue, but if I'm being honest I was rather disappointed, as after the small improvements the series has been making, it is sad to see it take a backwards step. Paul Cornell is really trying my patients with this story, as although I have all the respect for his writing skills, he has been very inconsistent with this series. Cornell did however do a great job of getting into Wolverine's state of mind, adding fantastic tone and mood to the issue, as well as setting up his next encounter brilliantly. In saying that I personally would still have rather seen more action and excitement in this issue, and if not something that was really shocking, which we didn't get.

The artwork in this issue was however phenomenal, and Alan Davis' art has easily been the best thing about this storyline so far. The detail in Davis' art is simply amazing, as although there are very minor imperfections, he makes up for that throughout the rest of the issue. The issue also had some fantastic layouts from Davis, with it adding a lot of depth and tone to the issue. I especially loved one panel in particular, that showed Wolverine's silhouette with just the whites of his eyes and teeth showing through. Davis also did a fabulous job of showing the characters expressions throughout this issue, as it added a lot of depth, and helped to liven it up during the slower sequences.
