WOLVERINE: VIOLENT TENDENCIES- a worthy sequel to the best Wolverine novel out there.

Posted: February 2, 2013 in Uncategorized

A while ago, I reviewed a novel by Mr. Marc Cerasini, called WOLVERINE: WEAPON X, a prose adaptation of Barry Windsor Smith’s graphic novel. That book simply blew me away.

Now I’m going to review its equally mindblowing sequel, WOLVERINE: VIOLENT TENDENCIES.

Picking up where WEAPON X left off, the novel follows Logan on his quest for freedom, initiated after a brutal killing spree unleashed on his tormentors. A fugitive in the Canadian wilderness, Logan comes across Native-American chief Thomas Swimming Horse, when he reaches an isolated community. But, as the old saying goes, there’s no rest for the weary. The Director of the group that experimented on him wants him back, and will stop at nothing to achieve his goal, sending some fierce opponents to track down and subdue or annihilate Weapon X. As Logan has never been the type of guy who’s easily subdued, annihilation is the only option that the Director sees fit.

The book simply kicks major butt, the action scenes are intense and visceral, Logan’s opponents are scary as all hell, and the characterization is awesome. From Logan, whose conflict with his own savage instinct continues, to Megan Vigil, the blind woman with bionic implants courtesy of the Director, to Thomas Swimming Horse, the down-on-his luck chief, all the characters are very easy to relate to. Like the book before it, this gets 10 stars outta 5
