X-POSITION: Phoenix, Upstarts & More Tear Up Bowers & Sims' "X-Men '92"
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we continue a mini theme week (“mini” as in it will take less than a week) that I meant to do the other week when his film came out – cool comic book moments involving Wolverine stabbing people!
Wolverine #57, as a whole, really isn’t that great of a comic book. Artist Marc Silvestri was ostensibly drawing the book alongside writer Larry Hama, but this was not the same Silvestri who had done a very nice job on Uncanny X-Men and had had a strong start as artist on Wolverine. For one, he had three inkers on the issue, suggesting that perhaps he was rushed a bit. For another, it just plain ol’ doesn’t look that good. He left the book soon after this issue (if not this very issue).
However, it does have a nice moment (despite the art) where Wolverine’s love, Mariko, who had to call off her wedding to Wolverine years earlier because of a Yakuza-related thing, has tried to come up with a way that she and Logan can be together.
Sadly, though, it ended up with Mariko suffering a horribly painful death from blowfish poison, leading to this rough scene between Logan and Mariko.
Then a page goes by featuring the other characters, including Jubilee, Gambit and Silver Samurai, and then…
Good moment from Hama, even if he was held back a bit by the art (appropriate as yesterday, the moment was cool BECAUSE of the art and not the writing).
