A comic is is dubbed successful if it makes an impact not just in the comic circle, but to the general public. Weapon X does just that. The reader is transported to the time and place in which Wolverine's skeleton is being laced with the most indesctrible metal, adamantium. The horror that goes to make this happen is beyond comprehension. Wolverine is chose because of his incredible healing factor and the fact that he will very much survive this excruciating assault and punishment. The heartless feel of the scientists responsible for this horror of manipulation culminates when after the procedure they start distributing drinks and actually cheer for their success. That scene alone is the most disturbing of all in the TPB. So disturbing, in fact, that it was chosen to depict some of Wolverine's origin in the X-Men smash-movie.
Any story capable of producing such an influx of emotion and loathing is worth a try. This is the story that shapes the making of a man that forever is haunted by memories of abuse and manipulation. I cannot think of anyone but Barry Windsor Smith to best tell this horrific tale.
Story was entertaining and artwork was great.
I'd recommend reading the Wolverine origin book as well if you're going to get this. That one is great as well.
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.
