Collecting issues #6-10 from the long-ago time of 2009 (yeah, my Flashback Friday's sometimes are more recent than other stuff, I'm weird) this was a great four-issue story arc about Wolverine in a twisted psychiatric facility and an extra issue about his past with women. It's utterly insane and zany and I loved it the first time I read it.
Issue #6 opens an unclear amount of time after the end of the first action-movie-styled arc and seems to be the kind of crazy stories Aaron loves to write. The interesting thing is, Logan is locked up in a creepy asylum where things definetely aren't right--but he is completely passive about the whole thing. We hear him talk about how he remember going to space and having friends who can teleport, and how it all just sounds so...crazy. Its humorous to think about how someone who has lived such a strange live as Wolverine's could possibly exist, and if they thought they had gone through his experiences wouldn't they sound deranged? I probably love these early issues the most because you keep wondering when Wolverine is finally going to crack and the crazy action is going to go down.

4.5 out of 5 stars.
Wolverine: Weapon X, Vol. 2: Insane in the Brain for some wild fun.
