Oct. 26 2011 Marvel Omnibus
He's the best there is at what he does - and Wolverine's not so bad, either. Now, writer Jason Aaron's (PUNISHERMAX, Scalped) entire character-defining run leading to "Wolverine Goes to Hell" is collected in one massive, bone-shattering volume. Joined by some of comics' top artists, Aaron pits Wolverine against a platoon of Adamantium-enhanced mercenaries, super-powered kung-fu gangsters, time-traveling reanimated killers and - in a brutal, no-holds-barred battle that may destroy them both - Mystique. Collecting WOLVERINE (2003) #56 and #62-65; WOLVERINE: MANIFEST DESTINY #1-4; WOLVERINE: WEAPON X #1-16; DARK REIGN: THE LIST - WOLVERINE; and material from WOLVERINE (2003) #73-74, DARK X-MEN: THE BEGINNING #3 and WOLVERINE (1988) #175.

5.0 out of 5 stars Worth the money Nov. 6 2011
By Scott Flower TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
This book has it all. Tons of action, clever humor, past and new loves, and plenty of snikt. The contents are entire story arcs and a couple one shots so there's no confusion about whats going on and everything you do need to know is explained in a recap every new story. Most of the stories are top notch while one or two you just want to end quickly. Great art through out the whole book. This is one of those books where its fun to have a different artist every new story arc. Since Jason Aaron's run is not a consecutive one its easy to understand why there are so many different artists. So if you have the money and are even considering buying this book in the slightest I'm telling you its absolutely worth it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Best of What He's Done, but What He Does is Still Fun May 21 2012
By BK - Published on Amazon.com
Yes, we all know Wolverine is overexposed and overrated, but there's a reason why he gets so much attention: because he and his stories tend to be so much fun.

And that's exactly what this Omnibus is, pure fun.

Jason Aaron takes Logan and drags him through almost every genre and emotion possible: there's love, action, vengeance, humor, gore, floating-brains, time-travel, and more! Regardless of your interest level in the actual story content, Aaron's amazing writing ability cannot be denied as apparent in his current ongoing Wolverine title. His Wolverine feels natural and true to the character, UNLIKE the countless forced interpretations Logan has endured.

I found myself disfavoring the majority of the art. Either the lines are too loose and lack detail or the inks are too flat. There are a handful of gorgeous-looking issues but "generic" would best define the overall impression from the art.

What Aaron's Wolverine Omnibus lacks in depth, is made up for in the form of a wild journey only Wolverine is suited for. This book will not sway the minds of those who are already tired of the Canadian's hack-and-slash methods, but can certainly provide quality entertainment for the current Wolverine fan.

5.0 out of 5 stars High Concept Stories for a High Concept Character Dec 10 2011
By zemantic. - Published on Amazon.com
High Concept is something we talk about a lot in comics. It is often the target of some ridicule because writing high concept that furthers an ongoing plot and contributes to character development is a difficult task to master. Especially when the character you are writing is high concept in and of himself. Wolverine is a man with bone claws and the ability to heal from any wound. His skeleton was bonded with Adamantium making him unbreakable. And, oh yeah, he's been alive for well of 100 years and shows no signs of stopping any time soon. Wolverine is the definition of High Concept in character design. Jason Aaron brings something new to Wolverine. He throws the idea of putting this wil character in a realistic world to the wind and gives Wolverine stories that try to one up the level of insanity in each story, continuing from this omnibus into the next trade paperback; "Wolverine Goes to Hell." In one story after another Jason Aaron manages to create wildly unique concepts that naturally progress the character and show sides of Wolverine we've never seen before.

With Stories like Manifest Destiny, The Adamantium Men, Insane in The Brain and Tomorrow Dies Today this omnibus is well worth the Amazon price. "The Ademantium Men" specifically stands out as a highlight for me. The concept for the five issue arc is essentially "What if someone started Weapon X back up?" A Corporate Entity gets their hands on The old Weapon X files and starts up layering soldier's bones with Ademantium again. Wolverine takes this personally and sets out to get to the bottom of it. imagine his surprise when he finds out these corporate mercenaries have also emulated his claws in their new Living Weapons. But with Lasers!

As a whole Jason Aaron's work on Wolverine is phenomenal. He is definitely a writer to keep your eyes on, and I have recently placed him in a short list of creators whose products I will purchase unconditionally. I hope others will take the chance with this as it is truly a fantastic read and hopefully people stick with it into the next omnibus (yet to be printed) because it only gets better when Wolverine goes to hell.

If you got this book to read the complete Wolverine Weapon X series, well it sort of is not complete. For the arc - Tomorrow Dies Today #11-13, are complete, while #14-15, are NOT COMPLETE; the pages are somehow mixed up. This is the only problem I had, when buying this book.

I really enjoyed every issue in this. It arrived quickly and my wife opened it while I was at work. She texted me to let me know my "wolverine bible" had come, and she wasn't kidding. This thing is huge! Filled with beautiful artwork and entertaining story arcs. All the wolverine you'll ever need in one giant brick of a book. Plus, it's a steal... Bub.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantasticly Absurdly Awesome Wolverine Stories April 11 2012
By R. Moore - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
Readers shouldn't go into this expecting some big revelations on the character and his past. This is Jason Aaron as a writer telling five different stories that just highlight the craziness and violent nature that is the mutant called Wolverine.
There's a bout with Mystique, a battle with magical kung-fu fighters in Chinatown, a melee with a group of "Adamantium Men", a mindbending trip to an asylum, and a Terminator homage that brings Dethlok back to light.
All five of these stories display various aspects of what makes Wolverine a great character, putting him through everything and anything that could tear him apart limb from limb, and then sending him even further. Padded out by several single issue stories, this collection is perfect for any fan of the furry Canadian or of Jason Aaron.
The $60 asking price is well worth this intro into Jason Aaron's insane take on Wolverine. From here readers can head forth into his tenure on the characters main ongoing series beginning with "Wolverine Goes to Hell", which is exactly what it says it is.
