    Ah, anthology titles! There's something that usually average out to be fairly mediocre. It's inevitable, really; several short stories all by different creators... some are going to be good, others less so. Still, I decided to rate all twelve stories collected here individually (well, I rated each story twice, actually; once for the story and once for the artwork) and divided the result by twenty four (see the last parenthesis) to get an overall score. The result: 3.77 stars, rounded up to 4. So, Ah, anthology titles! There's something that usually average out to be fairly mediocre.

I'm not the world's biggest Logan fan by any stretch of the imagination and even I thought it had some really good moments and some really nice artwork. A couple of stinkers, too, but what ya gonna do? Oh, I should probably mention; the gimmick here, in case you can't work it out from the title, is that these stories are presented in black and white with red highlights. The lesson here is that some artists' work looks great in black and white (and red) and some artists' work really needs to be in colour. (Some 'artists' need to be chained in the cellar with a sketchpad and pencil and not let out until they learn to draw without lightboxing but enough of my eternal gripe against Greg Land.) My next book: Songs of Experience

    A bloody good time. These are multiple stories from multiple artist/writers. Mostly around 8 pages, sometimes up to 10 pages long, that show Logan off. With so many stories in here, there's no long big storyline going on, but so many stories keeps it fresh incase you didn't like it too much. From Logan dealing with Sabertooth, to fighting Juggy in a bar, to saving a kid, to having to deal with leaving his kid behind in the past. Most of the stories range from good to great. None really stuck out A bloody good time. These are multiple stories from multiple artist/writers. Mostly around 8 pages, sometimes up to 10 pages long, that show Logan off.

None really stuck out as bad. There was a few that try to connect to older stories that felt a bit disjointed. But overall, most were a lot of fun, some fun and over the top to really dark and brooding wolverine. I like both so both worked for me. The art is the selling point, and though I know people hate Land's artwork, I personally liked a lot of it here among other artist. I have to say I was a little sad we didn't get a single story with Laura as Wolverine. It wasn't like her arc was 6 issues, she ran 30+ issues as wolverine. I don't see why we couldn't get one single short story with her as Wolverine. Anyway, was a solid collection. The oversized Library format really helped the art shine. A 4 out of 5.

    A good collection of Wolverine stories. This TPB collects four issues of this mini series. Each issue contains three short stories. These are all at different point of Wolverine's life, and different roles. Whatever he calls himself this book is all about blood, guts and violence. The books does a great job of showing the different sides of Wolverine's character. The honourable warrior, the hero, the vigilante, the brawler, the martial artist, the team player, the lone wolf, tactical, angry, red A good collection of Wolverine stories.

The artwork of having the book in black and white with red really adds to the violence. One problem I did have is this is a adult book, with an adult character, full of brutality why cut out the cursing? Eg "*$#@ you"? Why not just add it all in? A great book for any Wolverine fan. A great trip around his many incarnation and against most of his too villains. Short to the point action packed stories. I really liked the A4 format of the book too. Bigger pages, bigger panels all action.

    This was a cool experiment. It's an anthology series done in black, white and red only. We get to see Wolverine stories set in several periods of his life including some that will appeal to long time X-Men fans. The stories vary as they always do in anthology comics, but this has some good and really nothing is bad, some are just better than others. I found this to be a treat for Wolverine fans, so if you think you'll enjoy this you probably will. This was a cool experiment. It's an anthology series done in black, white and red only.

    Хороша та кривава збірка історій про Лоґана, що охоплює різні етапи його життя. Здебільшого, мабуть, такі речі на один раз, але мені сподобався екшн. Я досить негативно та прискіпливо малюнок Бачало, який дуже важко зрозуміти з трьома кольорами, але загалом приємні відчуття після прочитання. Шкода, що так швидко і доволі мало, але є на що подивитись та з чого вибрати, адже кожна історія та різанина намагається відрізнятись одна від одної.

    Комікс-антологія про деякі уривки з життя Росомахи. Усі антологія виконана у чорно-білих кольорах з вкрапленнями червоного у деяких моментах. І як ви зрозуміли усі моменти з кров'ю та кишками виконанні у червоному. Виглядає дуже класно. Хіба що це антологія, різні автори та ілюстратори, тому від розділу до розділу якість малюнку змінюється. Комікс-антологія про деякі уривки з життя Росомахи.

    Wolverine: Black, White, and Blood was an interesting concept that payed off half of the time. This was a series that took the Sin City concept and applied it to 4 issues that consisted of 3-4 short stories each by different creative teams; half of the time this worked for me, and half the time it didn’t. If the art was good, the story was only ok, and if the story was good, the art was abysmal. I feel this would have been more beneficial had it been one full story by one creative team.

I get the idea of multiple creative teams tackling different points of Wolverine’s life in this style, but story wise it left a lot to be desired. I read this in single issues but understand that this review is for the treasury edition, which are really great for displaying art. While some of the art in this miniseries was downright bad, there was a bit of really good art that could be enjoyed in this format. At the end of the day, if you’re a diehard Wolverine fan and love giant comic art pieces, this is a must-have for your collection. For casual Logan fans like me, this is a mixed bag that you wouldn’t lose any sleep over for missing.

    In the mid-nineties, DC Comics published Batman Black and White, which consisted of eight-page black and white Batman stories, written and drawn by numerous creators, and has been a series that has been revived again and again over the years. Now that DC has decided to take this approach with some of the iconic characters such as Superman and Wonder Woman, each with their own unique twist, Marvel has decided to follow their rival and what creations of theirs can be given the treatment. With Wolve In the mid-nineties, DC Comics published Batman Black and White, which consisted of eight-page black and white Batman stories, written and drawn by numerous creators, and has been a series that has been revived again and again over the years. Now that DC has decided to take this approach with some of the iconic characters such as Superman and Wonder Woman, each with their own unique twist, Marvel has decided to follow their rival and what creations of theirs can be given the treatment. With Wolverine: Black, White & Blood, originally published as four single issues, there are twelve short stories about the history of arguably the most popular X-Men character (except for Kitty Pryde, of course), as told by numerous writers and artists. I don’t want to delve too deeply into the stories themselves, which is really more of a technical exercise for artists to show off their work in black and white, but there are some definite highlights. Opening the book is “The Beast Within Him” by Gerry Duggan and Adam Kubert, where we see Wolverine during his Weapon X period, where he is tested to fight off various enemies including one giant beast. I’m usually not a fan of Kubert’s art, which can look rough, but the way he crafts the action here, particularly with an astonishing double page spread, Kubert is at his peak. With much of the storytelling that is built upon action set-pieces, which primarily uses the red colouring for the blood-splattering, there is only a small handful of stories that applies some characterisation, such as the Chris Claremont/Salvador Larroca story “Do We Die Today?”, on Wolverine gets to interact with Kitty Pryde. Hands down the best story goes to “32 Warriors and a Broken Heart” by John Ridley and Jorge Fornés, a Japan-centric narrative in which Wolverine goes a family revelation whilst fighting an array of enemies. From Ridley’s touching characterisation to Fornés’ Mazzuchelli-esque illustrations, it makes you wish for a Wolverine series by these two creators. With a diverse range of art-styles, the quality can differ, from the grittiness of Declan Shalvey, to the blandness of Greg Land and then the busyness of Chris Bachalo. However, as one of the few Marvel titles to be published in the Treasury Edition, I couldn’t think of a better way to read this mostly successful compilation of stories showcasing the violent side of the eponymous X-Man.

    This was a refreshing break from the current crop of X-books, which are enjoyable but convoluted. I’ve always liked Wolverine as a solo character more than the other X-folk, and I was pleased to see the creators pull from many of his past eras for their stories. I don’t remember the titles of the stories, but my favorites were: -The Silver Samurai story by John Ridley and Jorge Fornes (definitely my favorite in the whole book) -The other Japan-set story by Kelly Thompson and Khary Rudolph -The Arca This was a refreshing break from the current crop of X-books, which are enjoyable but convoluted.
