The last Wolverine graphic novel that was this seminal, this important to read was Barry Windsor Smith's Weapon X. Origins and Endings is the rare graphic that provides both a perfect start for new readers unfamiliar with the character and a devishly delicious plot filled with small details the long time fan will drool over.
At the end of House of M, Wolverine regained his memory. His ENTIRE memory. Though I thought I wouldn't like this turn of events, Daniel Way handles it in such a way that just enough is revealed to answer almost none of the reader's questions, but to provide even more intrigue than before.
The art by Saltares and Texira is fabulous, and just moody enough to be perfect. There's even small details the artists have incorporated to make the long time X-Fan say " I can't believe they threw that in!"
This really is the best X-Men graphic in years. I'm frustrated I can't rate it higher. Please, get yourself a copy and then get a copy for your friend. You won't want to lend yours out, you'll be too busy re-reading it again and again!
Highest recommendations to new fans and seasoned fans alike!
