I thought Cullen Bunn was taking over Wolverine for awhile, but it’s looking like he’s just doing a four issue stint. Which is too bad. I think Bunn could do good things with Logan but it won’t happen in four issues. I’m a little disappointed in the plot of Bunn’s Wolverine story. There have been too many “Wolverine being mind controled” stories lately. I do like that he’s revisiting Dr. Rot instead of making up a new character for his short stint.

I wish Bunn had more of a run on Wolverine because it seems he’ll need some more time to get Logan right. His Wolverine is too talkative, too reflective in his thinking. It’s not bad, it’s well written, but just doesn’t feel like Logan.

Because it’s only a 4 issue stint, Bunn doesn’t need any of the establishing build-up and can throw us into the middle of the story. He does a good job bringing us up to speed of what led to this pint with minimal pages. It works good, giving the story plot a quick pace and feel except for the reflective narrative which slows the action down.

The brain creatures are creepy and well drawn. Pelletier has grown alot as an artist over the years. I don’t think Meikis is the best inker for Pelletier’s pencils, but it’s not a bad looking issue.
