2.0 out of 5 stars A Fun, Quick, and Ultimately Forgettable Read Nov. 16 2011
By Joseph Born - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover
Marvel Universe vs. Wolverine is a four issue limited series written by Jonathan Maberry that serves as a prequel to Marvel Universe vs. The Punisher. It is a story about Wolverine frantically attempting to stop all the characters of Marvel from turning into cannibalistic zombies, slaughtering many of them in the process. The art by Laurence Campbell is extremely gritty. Many other readers felt this added to the "feel" of the story, I felt it did not. Nearly ever panel looks like it is out of focus or over pixilated. At some points in the story, characters were even unrecognizable.
As for the story, this is as simple as it gets. Wolverine needs to find a cure for a virus that's turning people into zombies, and he has to kill a lot of people trying to find it. Maberry nails Logan's character. The dialogue, both internal and external, are spot on. The plot moves at a fast pace, with simplistic story telling. Wolverine discovers a clue about the cure, zombies try to stop him, he kills them. Repeat.
Ultimately this a forgettable read. Sure, there is some gruesome killing scenes involving our favorite clawed Canadian, readers looking for a deeper story will be left unsatisfied. If you're looking for an easy to read action-oriented story, this is for you. For those looking for a deeper read, check out Wolverine: Enemy of the State or Wolverine: Old Man Logan.

4.0 out of 5 stars Scary, Tense, Impossible Odds Jan. 21 2014
By Zalmorion the Fantastic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
In a world in which everyone can turn into a mad cannibal, a genetically perfected hunter, only the strongest of will and body survive. This story has Wolverine leading the crusade against this strange disease. Up against impossible odds, the situation for Wolverine and his few companions/allies gets worse by the hour. Heroes die. Villains step up to the plate. The world changes in a horrific way.

The story is too short. Yes. But most of the writing is good, most of the dialogue is natural, and most of the confrontations are portrayed in such a way that you can imagine the parts they leave out. It just should have been drawn out (pun intended) in every way. There were a lot of scenes to explore that just ended abruptly.

I will say that three superheroes who stand against this tide of evil make an excellent team. They pretty much hate each other, want to be on their own, yet make the most likely team to survive this horrific world. I wish there had been more of a storyline involving these three questing together. You'll see when reading it. I won't ruin anything. Suffice it to say that one is a maniac, one is a perfect hunter, and one is the best humanity has to offer.

You will enjoy this story. It puts Marvel characters in situations they really cannot overcome. Great book, if short. The art varies by page. It's not excellent, but good enough to get the story across.

Buy it. If you have a Kindle, be aware that many of the frames are hard to read on the 7" Fire HD.
