Wolverine: The Origin by Bill Jemas, Joe Quesada and Paul Jenkins, illustrated by Andy Kubert and Richard Isanove

Wolverine: The Origin Who is Wolverine? Literally the greatest mysteries in comics, Wolverine’s origins have always been shrouded in secrecy. But Marvel finally decided to reveal where the wolfish man with the heart of gold came from, under great controversy and consternation. The result is beautifully digitally painted graphic novel about a little boy who lost his parents under horrifically violent circumstances. Traveling under a different name with his beloved childhood nanny, young Wolverine begins to feel the effects of his superhuman strength as he tries to make his way at a mining camp in the frozen Yukon Territory. But his past will catch up with him in a way he couldn’t even be able to imagine, and this time, Logan won’t be able to keep his claws from coming out. A compilation of the material originally published as a serial, Origin is a gorgeous GN, full of rich art and gory conflict. Wolverine is a fascinating character to try to understand and unravel, and this volume helps immensely in trying to understand his complex motives. A real reading pleasure.
