2.0 out of 5 stars Artistic but unsatisfying. May 25 2014
By K. Ketz
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
While the artwork is quite good, I found the story sub-par. We are barely introduced to Logan, the apparent nomad, when he is kidnapped and subject to weaponisation and experimentation. There are a number of action sequences that lead to absolutely nowhere in the story. Then the second-last sequence, which would have been a good ending itself, is a pointless twist with no purpose. I found the overall story repetitive and I was disappointed that the story didn't answer any questions. Who/What/Where/Why? Who are these people behind the weapon X project, why are they doing what they're doing, what is adimantium even? We are not given any motivation for the characters or any clue as to where the story is going. It is just a number of violent scenes that focuses on the pain and brutality Logan goes through. I suppose that in itself is important to the development of Wolverine's character in other stories, but if you are looking for a better understanding of why Wolverine became the mutant with an adimantium skeleton, don't expect to get that here.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent and haunting... March 9 1999
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
This is the graphic novel that tells what happened to Logan when he received his adimantium. Mind games... physical changes... training... everything. The artwork is first rate and the writing is even better than the art work. It is one of the few trade paperbacks that are on the same level as DC's Kingdom Come and Dark Knight Returns

5.0 out of 5 stars Great book for all Wolverine fans! June 29 2009
Format:Paperback
Straight up wolverine. this is just a great book. One of the best wolverine story to date. it would be great if it was hardcover instead of a paperback. it is a great addition to your collection if you don't already own it.

5.0 out of 5 stars a must have March 15 2004
Format:Paperback
The Weapon X story is a classic. It is one of the greatest Marvel stories told. And it is all collected here in one inexpensive volume. If you like the X-Men, if you like Wolverine, or if you just like comic books, you should have this.

5.0 out of 5 stars A horrifying adult read Oct. 14 2003
By A Customer
Format:Paperback
First of all, I want to disagree with the reviewer who stated this was not the Wolverine story. He is mixing this book up with a new series of the same title, which by the way, is also excellent. Second, this is a slow-paced story. However, the slow pace intensifies the utter horror of what was done to this character, and the inhuman indifference of the scientists who are experimenting on and torturing a living, feeling,being. This is a book which needs a second and third reading; after each pass, I found additional elements that I hadn't noticed the first time through. This isn't for kids or fans of slam-bam action by one dimensional heroes in colorful spandex. However, if you want a dark, intense read, this book is for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars violent violent violent June 12 2003
Format:Paperback
Okay, so everyone who wrote a review of this book was actually speaking of the old wolverine book. this one's a bit different. first if you are a Wolverine fan this is not for you. If you are into some of the older underdog xmen characters like Marrow, Sauron, and Sabertooth than you may like this.
Basically it's about the Weapon X program re starting with new draftees. I won't let out any major plot points but just know that if you have kids, don't let them read this. It is not you average X book.
