5.0 out of 5 stars 5 stars for Daken. 4.5 stars for the collection. Feb. 17 2011
By Ken - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I missed the Dark Reign (and much of Marvel comics for the past ten years) but I remember my confusion about this "new" Wolverine in the oldie but goodie brown costume (my favorite). So I read up on Wolverine's apparently 60 year old son and couldn't help but think, "really Marvel?!" It seemed like shameless milking of the Wolverine cashcow. Daken in a nutshell: a darker, meaner Wolverine with an Assassin's Creed twist ala the middle claw juts from his inner arm (I don't know if its coincidence or if one inspired the other TBH). And the whole Romulus thing.. UGH. I stayed far far away.

Then I took a chance on the relaunched Daken: Dark Wolverine series and was totally drawn in by the writing and the art. This Daken character is one manipulative SOB and I loved it! I wanted to fill in some (keyword) blanks and found this TPB Dark Wolverine Vol. 1.

First off there are only three Dark Wolverine issues in this run 75-77; I should note that the creative team of Way/Liu writing and Camuncoli/Catacchio pencils/inks is the same as the new Daken on-going. The colorist is different but the results are not so different that the casual reader would notice. I love the art team in this book!!

The majority of the story in these issues takes place between the all out action scenes of the Dark Avengers series. If you want big super hero brawls, look elsewhere. In Dark Avengers, Vol. 1: Assemble and Dark Avengers, Vol. 2: Molecule Man, Daken's role is severely diminished, to the point of obscurity. In Dark Wolverine Vol. 1: The Prince its a battle of wills between Osborn, Daken, and the rest of the dark avengers. The action takes place in meeting rooms, bedrooms, parties, Reed Richards' lab, rooftops, weight rooms.. lol. Its behind the scenes, its all about character interaction and its fantastic. If you like it when the characters don't get along, you'll love this book.

After the run there is a "dark Wolverine saga" filler, an 8 page history of Daken with pics.

The final two issues, Wolverine 73-74, are unrelated and tell a stand alone story of Daken's dad, Logan. The art is reminiscent of the David Mazzucchelli/Richmond Lewis team from Batman Year One. Its a decent story but a total departure from the rest of the collection. Kind of a letdown if you buy this just for Daken.

I love the three Dark Wolverine issues (+5.0 stars), the filler is ok (+/-0.0 stars), and the final 2 issues are actually pretty good but they aren't about Daken despite the Dark Wolverine tag on the cover(-0.5 stars). I wanted a collection vs tracking down the singles so overall I knew what I was getting and wasn't disappointed. Verdict: 4.5 stars.

4.0 out of 5 stars Daken Oct. 6 2010
By Kit Kabang!!! - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Ok here's the thing about Daken, he's vicious, he's manipulative and pretty much rotten to the core. Simply put he's a text book bastard but he's also charismatic. I myself am not a huge Wolverine fan by any means, yet i found myself hooked on this book. Dark Wolverine basically shows who Daken is and what he's about. The characterization is that simple but with a character like Daken i feel that simplicity made this book even more readable. The cameos from the Fantastic Four dont do much for Marvel's super family but serve to show the lengths Daken will go to get what he wants. If you don't know much about Daken or just wanna see more of him I'd say give this a looksie. Not an Eisner Award winner necessarily but it might end up a guilty pleasure.
3.0 out of 5 stars not really necessary Sept. 8 2013
By Tom C - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought the Dark Wolverine series because it was listed as completing the previous wolverine run (after Old Man Logan) but it's really not - so it's just ok. Daken is a hard character to like because he's so different from everyone else (not just wolverine). he's written to be indecipherable by the other characters in the books but that translates beyond the story so i dont find any way to identify with him. unless you are a wolverine fanatic (I am) and you want to have all the # for continuity's sake (I do) then I can't really recommend this or My Hero (vol 2)

5.0 out of 5 stars Dark Wolverine vol 1: The Prince Feb. 5 2013

4.0 out of 5 stars Taken a looken at Daken June 2 2012
By Noel - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Norman Osborn has been appointed head of a new taskforce for the US Government, the "Dark Avengers", replacing members of the Avengers with villainous versions of that character. So you've got Venom as Spiderman, Ares as Thor, Norman Osborn as Iron Man/Cap, and Daken as Wolverine. Daken is Wolverine's son born from Wolverine and his Japanese wife's marriage who inherited a number of Wolverine's characteristics including the healing factor and bone claws. As such he's in his 70s but looks 25.

Daken's scheming political nature is gone into in this book, aptly named "The Prince" after Niccolo Machiavelli's famous book on power and politics. He's a double agent, at times doing good, at times doing bad, he's trying to bring down Norman Osborn, he's trying to set up the Fantastic Four - the reader never knows his true nature and he seems to be playing a larger game than anyone else. Unlike Wolverine though he can manipulate peoples' feelings and emotions through the release of pheromones which is interesting (and kinda like Poison Ivy from Batman) and only adds to his mysterious persona - he's like a pan-sexual psychotic ninja with genius level IQ.

The only bad point about this book is it's shortness at three issues. Daniel Way and Marjorie Liu have written an intriguing introduction to this character and I wanted to read more about him. Guiseppe Camuncoli's pencils perfectly compliment the script, giving Daken the look of a model in some scenes, the classic Wolverine look in others, and a perfect face for deceit.

The book is padded out with a two-short story where Wolverine goes all "Sons of Anarchy" which was ok. There's also a lengthy explanation giving the background to Daken for newcomers, and a covers gallery.

Daken becomes a more and more a character I feel is worth exploring further and I'll definitely be looking out for more books with him as the main character in the future. "The Prince" is an excellent place to start for new readers to give you a flavour of what this guy's all about.
