Like a Bub out of Hell Oct. 9 2011
By Sam Quixote - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Wolverine is trapped in some satanic ritual and his soul is sent to Hell while his body becomes possessed by demons and sets out to kill everyone he loves. Meanwhile his soul battles everyone he's ever killed while he tries to escape and get back to Earth to stop the carnage.

The religious storylines that Marvel put some of their best characters through are in my opinion some of the worst books they put out. It's why I was turned off of Ghost Rider when his storyline became all about Hell and damnation or when Punisher got mixed in with angels in the late 90s or in this instance when Wolverine gets sent to Hell. It's strangely dull.

Logan is in Hell for the entire book and so he's constantly fighting throughout the book which gets tiresome after a while. Sure he fights Satan in the end but it's just another fight and after so many fights you think, meh. As for possessed Wolverine, we've all seen that before a few times so again it's another feeling of blasé reading this book.

It's not a terrible book as the writing's not bad, the story is ok, and the artwork is terrific, but it's kind of a weak storyline to have Logan possessed again and fighting demons - it's just not enough to have surface texture, you need depth to make a great comic book.

It's also probably not the best book for new comics readers to start with as there are a few questions reading through it that aren't answered, for example who the Red Right Hand are, or some of the more obscure characters like Puck and Son of Satan. It's not a bad book though not a must read - for fans of Logan only.

This story shows why Wolverine is the best at what he does. March 16 2011
By HUR MEE - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
With all the Wolverine stories out there today, how do you create a new story arc that reminds us why Wolverine is so awesome? You get Jason Aaron to write it and send Wolvie to Hell! The book starts out with Wolverine falling and trying to clench onto the cliff next to him. There are some great twisted surprises as he descends into Hell and many more to follow once he is there.

I have not read all of Wolverines stories as I try to stick to the ones that seem the most important to his story arc and that are not plagued by unnecessary cameos.
I read Wolverine Goes To Hell in one sitting and then reread it again 2 days later. This story is well paced and has a ton of dark themes, great action, and well written dialogue. It really is my favorite Wolverine story arc so far. And it leaves you wanting to read the next story arc, Wolverine vs. the X-men!

To me, this collection of the story arc Wolverine Goes To Hell is a no brainer. Pick it up Bub!

Excellent Buy April 14 2011
By Charlie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I haven't read a comic book in ages... After walking pass a comic store I noticed a poster displaying the cover of this book Wolverine goes to hell. Curious, I searched for this book online and found it on amazon for a good price so I decided to purchase it. I have to say I do not regret buying it. Excellent read and it even got me back into comic books and looking forward to purchasing the whole wolverine origin collection.

A Hell of a Storyline! March 12 2011
By Joseph Born - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Wolverine Goes to Hell is the first volume in Jason Aaron's (Writer of Punisher MAX) latest run on Wolverine. This hardcover collects the Road to Hell Prologue, Wolverine 1-5, two short stories related to the storyline, and some extras.
To start, my Wolverine reading has been limited to Wolverine Omnibus, Vol. 1 and Wolverine: Enemy of the State . Beyond that, I've never read any of his solo series. I've also never read any of Jason Aaron's other work, so this was my first time reading him.
The book starts off with Wolverine "falling" into Hell. We don't know how it happened or why, it just has. The first issue begins with Logan visiting Wraith, his old Weapon X friend, who is a pastor now. Suddenly, Wolverine's body is inhabited by a demon while the Devil tortures Logan's soul in Hell. Meanwhile, his latest girlfriend is attacked but rescued by Mystique. Now if this sounds like a horrible B-movie, hang in there. Because this actually makes for a stellar idea, which is executed brilliantly by Aarons.
Logan is forced to face his inner demons... literally. Omega Red, Sabretooth, The X-Men, the Ghost Riders, Mariko, Puck, Silver Samurai, and many others make appearances by the end of the third issue in this series. We get to see Logan at his weakest and strongest moments in this series. For example, the Devil makes Mariko beat Logan, making him cry. Or when Logan stands up to Beezlebub himself, all Hell watching. And while all this is happening, the demon inhabiting Wolverine is causing Hell on Earth. From severely hurting Colossus to killing his former lovers, it's all here. And the person who arranged for Logan's soul to be taken to Hell was someone I NEVER expected to see.
The story wraps itself up quickly and left me extremely satisfied. Although it does tease Aaron's next volume, "Wolverine vs The X-Men." Also, if you want to see how the demon in Logan's body confronts his children, pick up Daken: Dark Wolverine Empire and X-23, Vol. 1 .
The artwork is great, especially the covers. Guedes manages to make evocative covers that convey a lot about what Logan's going through. The dialogue is great, especially between Mystique and Logan's girlfriend. Overall, this book is a perfect 5/5. The only thing that could have made it better was if it was oversized.

Jason Aaron has a hell of an imagination for Wolverine stories May 18 2011
By Joseph Laboca - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Missing out on the issues as they come out kinds sucks but I'm glad I get to get the collector books. Without giving anything away, as usual, Logan kicks some butt and in hell. I've read Jason Aaron's Weapon X run and his Ghost Rider run. If you have read any of those I'm sure you will appreciate this read. The art is pretty cool and so far it's a good story. I'm still away from the US and can't wait until the Wolverin vs the X-Men book comes out.
