I have been digging this series since its inception. I love Wolverines son Dakken and the continued story of Rommules keeps me going. Definilty a must buy for Marvel and Wolverine fans!
HASH(0xa2ead834) out of 5 stars Never reigns but it pours Nov. 25 2012
By Sam Quixote - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Wolverine and Daken have reached an uneasy peace where the two can get along for a few pages without popping their claws and having at each other but Daken's character is still shady with his true motivations remaining to be seen. The book opens in a made up African nationa where Cyber is hiding out. Wolverine and Daken are looking for Romulus, the lynchpin behind all the horrible things that has happened in this series and seemingly the mastermind behind the Weapon X programme.

If you thought Wolverine's history was convoluted before, Daniel Way adds another layer of bizarreness to it by introducing the strange history of the Hudson family who seem to have a connection to Logan and in turn Daken. I won't spoil it here partly because I don't understand it. Is this now canon or is it like the Ultimates?

Anyway the X-Men make an appearance when Daken predictably turns on his pop and tries to steal the precious carbonadium - the only material that can permanently damage Wolverine and cripple his healing factor - to graft onto him so he can kill Logan. The guy who does this to Daken has remained a mystery to me - this tinkerer character has been nothing but trouble for Wolverine but nothing is done to limit his movements or imprison him and as a consequence the guy keeps showing up inconveniently and making stuff worse for ol' Logan once again.

The book has decent art from Yanick Paquette and Doug Braithwaite who've replaced Steve Dillon - an artist who is unfairly criticised for his drawing style which I cannot understand. He is brilliant and missed on this book. Daniel Way puts in a solid effort in this, perhaps overlong, series introducing Daken to the Marvel Universe but after six volumes I think he should be wrapping this up very soon as the story is beginning to feel a bit stale. "Dark Reign" has some good scenes but it's nothing special.
HASH(0xa2fc2e64) out of 5 stars Cuts like a knife. Dec 8 2013
By THowerton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
Wolverine's got his memories back. He's going after Romulus, a savage mastermind who's engineered him and his son to nefarious ends, and whom both want to knock off. So they team up to go after him. Only Daken, Wolverine's deadly offspring, opts to get his hands on the Muramasa blade to make himself capable of killing not so dear old dad.

What's good about this collection is that it furthers the lore of Wolverine (I won't spoil it for future readers but it has to do with why he was created in the first place) and it keeps a good pace. Can't say I'm a big fan of Daken but turning him into the Avengers' Wolverine in this Dark Reign crossover is a sharp/ smart turn. 3.75 stars.

This was pretty enjoyable. Not really that much to do with the "Dark Reign" event but that doesn't really matter that much.

It did take me a little bit to get into the story as I haven't been following the series that closely.

The story works well and though it was a bit obvious at times it was still quite interesting.

The artwork was pretty good. There were some nice covers as well.

This wasn't exceptional but it was an authentically enjoyable Wolverine story.
