We are continuing our celebration of Women’s History Month by celebrating all the great female figures in comic books today, tomorrow, and yesteryear. This time, we are moving back to Marvel for a unique adventure back into a universe we should all be aware of by now considering that it was released two days ago. In this Universe, Logan is dead and his daughter who was created as a clone of his DNA Laura Kinney is now in the Wolverine costume taking over where he left off. We fast forward to present day where Laura is in France for a rescue mission of sorts because an assassin is trying to kill someone very important in Paris. After being shot in the head, she has a flashback dream sequence where Logan is talking to her about how she is different than him and that is a good thing and then she wakes up. She wakes up to make a chilling discovery as to who the assassins could be. To read more about the issue and what happens next, you can do so by clicking here to go to Marvel’s website.
One thing that I wanted to start off the article with is the fact that artwork was a little disappointing to me. Don’t get me wrong not all of it is bad, but it just seems at times that they got a little lazy with some of the characters in the panels. They were not main characters, but still I am stickler for the overall picture. The panels are easy to read and follow along to so you shouldn’t have too much trouble with that. As far as the story is concerned, I loved the fact that they inserted the flashback because I feel it adds to the story. She is still trying to deal with the death of her father while trying to be the best she can be ro at least what he would have wanted her to be. When you see what happens in the issue, I guarantee you are going to want to know more because I sure as heck do. I definitely recommend the comic to any one who loves the X-Men or Wolverine universe. Check out my grades below!
