Mo’ Comics, Mo’ Moments. Here are some of our favorite moments of the week. What were some of your own?
By Jonathan Hickman and Jerome Opena
When comic runs go south we tend to remember the changes to the characters ala The Clone Saga or One Moment in Time (poor Spiderman) We tend to blame the changes as bad idea’s when in fact I think it’s more on the failure of the creative team then anything else which brings us to Wolverine #1. I already heard people at the LCS complaining about Wolvie not having the healing factor but I don’t think thats the issue here. Paul Cornell’s run on Wolverine has been a decent take on the title that never really went anywhere although decent is like the bare minimum you should do on a title when you have one of the greatest living artist of all time drawing your work as Alan Davis was. But Davis is gone and as good as Stegman was on titles like Scarlet Spider or Superior Spiderman he isn’t good enough to make this issue work and what you end up with is a flat lifeless comic that’s trying to be exciting with it’s premise without having the foundation in the plot or characters to make this work. Say what you will about Superior Spiderman (lord knows I have) but you can’t deny that when that title switched up the chessboard on it’s premise he had something to say about it from issue one going forward. Here it’s Wolverine and a bunch of other dudes doing morally ambiguous activity but theres nothing to connect the reader. Cornell’s script and dialogue is just blah. It doesn’t suck it’s just there. Stegman just isn’t bringing anything to the table here either in spite of his best efforts. It’s essentially idea’s without anything interesting to engage them to the story. It’s one thing to be bad but it’s a whole other thing to be boring which is what this is. That’s just a waste of time and with all the strong material out there I don’t have any more to give this.
