Perhaps at last Wolverine will understand what or who his truly is--and what it means to be...
I haven't talked about a modern comic book on my blog before, I don't have too much to revel with. I do derive more pleasure from Silver and Bronze Age comic books.
But when Rambo creator David Morrell jumps on board Marvel Comics' Savage Wolverine #23 - I'm there! He can write anything, and now he makes his influential mark on comics! Savage Wolverine features stunning art by Jonathan Marks and a terrific Declan Shalvey cover.
|Pages from Savage Wolverine #23!|
The pace is dead even, tense and thoroughly compelling.
I will buy anything new by author David Morrell, based on his name alone. He is by far (close second, James Patterson & his Alex Cross series) my number one favorite author.
|Also made into a great TV movie with Robert Mitchum!|
|David Morrell's first novel! Wow!|
|Great novel from the heart!|
If you haven't read him before, I highly recommend it. The Brotherhood of the Rose, First Blood (his first novel) & Fireflies are a great place to start. He wrote the Captain America: The Chosen mini-series a few years ago, another superb comic book & Amazing Spider-Man #700.1 & #700.2.
|This one still haunts me!|
The brutal loner character is a great fit for Morell's particular skillset. If you want to really experience that side of his novels, read Blood Oath, Testament and Long Lost. I just cannot say enough of his writing expertise.
|Wolverine #10 Sabretooth appearance!|
