Es una historia increíble y desarrolla muy bien a Laura. Honey Badger es un gran personaje. Tal vez los últimos 6 números dejan algo que desear. El arte varía mucho, pero nunca desentona. Las portadas son muy buenas.
Tom Taylor no defrauda e incluso se atreve a burlarse de los fans tóxicos en el mismo Cómic.
Like I said in my World War Hulk II review, All-New, All-Different Marvel promised to bring new and exciting changes to the Marvel Universe as it was at the time but few of the series lived up to that hype. As with Totally Awesome Hulk mentioned before, All-New Wolverine was one of those few. Now thanks to this omnibus I've been able to read through the entire series again, and I think I appreciate it even more this time through. Writer Tom Taylor really knows Laura Kinney's history as a character, something I only delved into after reading the series the first time through the X-23 Complete Collections, and he uses it to bring her into her own as a different kind of Wolverine. The series is about both honoring the legacy of the first Wolverine but also forging one's own path as the new version and it's an all around well done effort. Taylor's dialogue is snappy and very fluid to read. He introduces many new and exciting concepts to the Marvel Universe including, in my opinion, one of the best new characters of the last few years. You'll see what I mean. There are a lot of great artists who worked on the series but of them all my favorite is Jaunn Cabal. His style is so incredibly detailed. There is also a cover gallery at the back of the collection but fair warning mine ended up with a printing error which created a crease across two of those pages. I can't speak as to how well remembered this series is even for a few years ago but it was a really creative and exciting book and one I'm happy to own. 5/5
This oversized hardcover contains X-23's freshman series under her new code name, Wolverine. This anthology is unabridged, containing each issue of All-New Wolverine, plus a couple other appearances such as her issue of Generations, and an encounter with Spider-Gwen.
For fans of the character, this is a must-have addition to the collection as it's the only omnibus that is focused on her, but for those who like her early years in the New X-Men/X-Force, the changes to her character design and the the evolution of her personality may not fit your expectations. I recommend reading a few issues of the individual comics before committing the sort of money that an Omnibus asks for.
As for the book itself, it holds up to Marvel's higher expectations of durability. The binding meets the standards of their other titles, allows for the pages to be opened far enough to read everything without compromising the spine, and the plastic wrapping prevents scuffing and other surface damage to the dust jacket in transit. Mine was delivered undamaged, but some people have mentioned their hardcovers have corners damaged during transit.
All in all, it's a great price for the content it contains, showcases the art in a larger format, and is well-constructed. It was delivered quickly and prominently features a character that's generally overlooked in Omnibus editions.
5/5, here's hoping that Laura gets more Omnibus editions.
I cannot say enough how much I have enjoyed this book; finished reading in just one sitting because I couldn't put it down. The writing is so good and no loose-ends at the end of the book. My only issue is the poor packing that resulted to damages on the cover, creased edges throughout the whole entire book, and the dust jacket. The next book would be returned in this condition as we pay with several belt-tightening weeks by forgoing dinners just buy these books. A little extra padding won't hurt.
