5.5 stars Brief history Ever since I heard so much about Wolverine s past in the Weapon X program and how much that played a huge role in the character he has become, I wanted to try and read on his back story of being apart of Weapon X To be honest, Wolverine Weapon X was the first story I have read that details the horrors that Wolverine has to go through when he was apart of the Weapon X program and I must say that I really enjoyed this book much than I expected What is the story Basically, [...]

A creature of such power shaken by his own shadow Driven by fear of himself YES Part Wolverine s diary, part medical procedural, part horror and psychological thriller If you ve ever wondered what happened to Wolverine at Weapon X, this is the book There are obvious ties to Mary Shelley s Frankenstein and themes of human versus monster and dehumanization This is as much a soulful biography as prototypical Wolverine slasher In addition to his fantastic and fast paced writing, Barry Windsor Smith [...]

The original telling of how Wolverine got his adamantium skeleton, first serialized in Marvel Comics Presents 72 84 Very confusing, nonlinear storyline, chaotic art panel arrangments, dialogue mostly medical technobabble from the doctors nurses operating on Wolverine or inarticulate grunts, yells and roars from Wolverine For most of the story, Wolverine is either anesthetized or freaking out and going into berserk rages, so there s not a lot of focus on his character Instead, the narrative focus [...]

This book explains how Wolverine came to have adamantium claws skeleton That s it He s abducted, taken to a lab where the entire book takes place , he s mostly unconscious speaking very little, the adamantium bonds with his bones and his healing factor prevents him from dying, the scientist tries to control him, fails, Wolverine s memory is wiped in the process, Wolverine kills everyone and escapes into the wilderness If you ve read a load of Wolverine books or even seen the first 2 X Men movies [...]

My friend is the biggest Wolverine fan in the Milky Way solar system He loaned me his Weapon X comics to read and to share the Wolverine love It was very good I admit that Wolverine isn t my favorite X Men that s Gambit , but he s a very intriguing character with a dark side that I find appealing mixed with this desire for justice What can I say I love my antiheroes The man has had his share of tragedy, and seeing how he gained the adamantium helped me to see him in a deeper light.Thanks, Mike, [...]

Barry Windsor Smith remains one of my all time favorite comic artists Completely unique Smith s writing on the other hand is often poor and this collection is no exception A weak build up jumpy narrative The scientists and security are all doofuses Enjoy the art, skip the story.

One of those books that I think is a classic for a reason It s unsettling as hell and pretty creative in the way it tells the story of where all that adamantium came from After a brief look at Logan before he s captured for the Weapon X program, Windsor Smith builds the narrative around the scientists and security keeping Logan under lock and key For them, Logan s an animal to be controlled and tested, not a person their dry observations contrast sharply with the pain he s clearly suffering in t [...]

they don t write em like they used to bloody dehumanizing horror fit for a jim thompson cyberpunk novel than the pages of marvel comics presents a childhood favorite of mine, it stands the test of time i guess my dad knew BWS from his conan days, which is why he would buy possibly the bloodiest comic i ve ever seen worse than JTHM possibly for his eager grade school aged son it s not all exposed ribs and bloody snrkt s, it s got a surreal cronenberg like i said cyberpunkness to it anyone know a [...]

Very good book So this is the story of how wolverine gets his animatum claws not X Men origins wolverine, don t even mention it I was surprised this book doesn t have any dialogue from Wolverine himself, its basically the scientists and them installing and testing Wolverines claws till the bloody confrontation at the end In the end not bad

Before reading Weapon X, I didn t have a fear of being jammed with cables and needles and wires and mechanical horrors from beyond the imagination of even the folks who made anime like Akira or Ghost in the Shell or Neon Genesis Evangelion I I really wasn t anticipating that Weapon X could be horrifying Maybe it s because I know who doesn t the story of Wolverine in the Weapon X program It s simple Wolverine is taken into a secret underground research complex, he has Adamantium bonded to his ske [...]

I m not sure I like the false ending thing It went along and I thought things were really happening, and then it turned out Logan had been set up or something I m still not sure so then he had to go back and do it for real I don t really know what it added I suppose good for Logan for seeing through it If it wasn t for that I would have rated it higher It was gruesome and awful, as it should have been.

This is a masterpiece This story delves into Wolverine s past, and how he went from being Logan to becoming The Wolverine It s not pretty It s not humane It s brutal It s violent It s dehumanizing It is glorious Barry Windsor Smith is a master at his craft, and we are delving into the depths of human depravity, where we believe others are less than we are, and we brutally set them to tasks as if they were not human It is gritty It is gory When a couple of critics said that Barry Windsor Smith dr [...]

Durante muchos a os se evit desvelar el origen de Lobezno, Logan era un personaje con un halo de misterio que le daba un gran atractivo a ojos de los lectores, pero evidentemente estos quer an saber m s de uno de sus personajes favoritos, y tuvo que ser un autor relativamente ajeno a las colecciones de mutantes el que se atreviera a contar lo que hasta entonces era un gran misterio, la forma en que lobezno consigui sus garras, uno de los episodios de su vida anterior a los x men que m s curiosid [...]

1993, that was the time that Wolverine was still an interesting and enigmatic character for me A time when he still wasn t making guest appearances in every second marvel comic A time where, sure he was a force to be reckoned with, but still wasn t as indestructible as he d later be showned to be.There was still alot of mystery to the character back then Just how old was he What exactly was the Weapon X thing Why would he even want to join a team like the X Men being such a loner Is he really Ca [...]

Es curioso lo que me ocurre con Barry Windsor Smith Su gran obra en Marvel, Conan, no me atrae lo que deber a quiz s porque estoy completamente buscemizado , pero sus peque as aportaciones en las colecciones de superh roes, grapas sueltas, me parecen maravillosas Los dibujos de aquel Iron Man de Armor Wars, o ese n mero de la Patrulla X en el que Tormenta luce como nunca, o aquel de Los 4 fant sticos, me fascinan Y sobre todos ellos, por supuesto, este Arma X en el que el artista act a como fact [...]

Windsor Smith s depiction of Logan s transformation into Wolverine still works This origin story is a magnificent piece of narrative illustration that truely exemplifies the potential of what graphic novels, or accurately the drawn novel, can and should aspire to be Windsor Smith melds words and pictures into a single form in which the letters on the page and where they are placed are as meaningful to the entire narrative as what they are saying This unification of all the elements of the mediu [...]

What a gruesome story What terrible things were done to Logan My favorite part of the book is when Logan is hanging over the professor and the professor says to Logan You are an animal to which Logan responds I am Logan Logan I am a man And you are the animal That says it al This story shows who the real animal is Not Logan, but the people in the Weapon X program Wolverine is my favorite Marvel character, always has been It was heartwrenching how these people or should I say animals, dehumanize [...]

It made me care Like care care for Wolverine That s rare So far, my two feelings toward the character were indiference in the comics and absolute hate in the movies So that says a lot about my enjoyment of this book I even considered giving it 5 stars.I must say, the structure it s weird, but if you persist you ll be rewarded Plus, it s one of those stories where you don t need any background info to understand it I really recommend it.

The second book Egmont put out because of the Wolverine movie and this is a really quality re pring of a comic published in Finland in the 90s Why Egmont bothers to put our reprints of comics that are very easily available in the second hand book shop, but they, so here it is.At least this reprint has very good paper quality and printing quality.But the story has too much dream sequenses for my taste.And the art is truly magnificent as one might expect from Barry Windsor Smith.Timo

Well, if I have to be unable to sleep in on a Saturday, at least I get to read cool stuff like this I wasn t a huge fan of the art, and I found the first few pages quite confusing, but then I was in and I was hooked I really felt for Logan in this one A lot of the comics I ve read lately have been OK, but not very emotionally affecting, but this one really worked for me With so much great material out there for Logan, it s really hard not to read and about him.

Pretty weak attempt to tell the story of Wolverine being created by the secret government Weapon X project is made interesting by some mind blowingly impressive Barry Windsor Smith art.Lots of good action scenes, but the cast is pretty flat the story tends to wander too much Can t tell if Smith is trying too hard to be clever or he s just not as good a writer as he is an artist.

Note the rhythmic intercutting between disparate images in the thirteen page prologue alone Note the thematic development, repetition and resolution The lighting is a good example Note the acting between the panels the broken hotel window panes that I didn t notice until my third reading.

The ultimate Wolverine comic In the movie they devoted like 2 seconds to the making of weapon x The comic book shows the extensive process that took days and all the ways the military tempered with his brains.
