This Series Is Getting Kind Of Awesome--Daken: Dark Wolverine #11
Rob Williams came on board to a series that was decent and over the course of just a few issues has turned it into something I look forward to more than any other Wolverine-related comic as of late. Now that's a quite a feat!
Perhaps it is how Rob Williams is having Daken actually enact clever plans instead of just telling the readers Daken has a big plan and then not showing us anything. Maybe it is the introduction of FBI agent Donna Kiel who seems almost more interested in catching Daken because she enjoys the challenge of it than having a genuine desire to stop him. Or, speaking of challenges, maybe it is how Williams points out throughout the series everything has been so easy for Daken as he has been written as some sort of super-skilled character, and Williams turns this on its head by having Daken admit he is bored with things being easy. I think it is all of these things, along with the fact that Daken finds a drug called "heat" that beats his healing factor and results in some incredible-looking art to show us readers his "tripping" on the drug. This is just a really entertaining comic!
4.5 out of 5 stars.
