    One thought on “Wolverine: Arma X”

    1. 5.5 stars!Brief history:Ever since I heard so much about Wolverine’s past in the Weapon X program and how much that played a huge role in the character he has become, I wanted to try and read more on his back story of being apart of Weapon X. To be honest, “Wolverine: Weapon X” was the first story I have read that details the horrors that Wolverine has to go through when he was apart of the Weapon X program and I must say that I really enjoyed this book much more than I expected!What is th [...]

    2. "A creature of such power--shaken by his own shadow! Driven by fear--of himself!"YES. Part Wolverine's diary, part medical procedural, part horror and psychological thriller. If you've ever wondered what happened to Wolverine at Weapon X, this is the book. There are obvious ties to Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and themes of human versus monster and dehumanization. This is as much a soulful biography as prototypical Wolverine slasher. In addition to his fantastic and fast paced writing, Barry Wind [...]

    3. 3.5 stars. This is an excellent Wolverine story that was originally published in Marvel Comics Presents #72 through #84. Introduced Cyber, one of my favorite Wolverine villains.

    4. The original telling of how Wolverine got his adamantium skeleton, first serialized in Marvel Comics Presents #72-84. Very confusing, nonlinear storyline, chaotic art/panel arrangments, dialogue mostly medical technobabble (from the doctors/nurses operating on Wolverine) or inarticulate grunts, yells and roars (from Wolverine). For most of the story, Wolverine is either anesthetized or freaking out and going into berserk rages, so there's not a lot of focus on his character. Instead, the narrati [...]

    5. This book explains how Wolverine came to have adamantium claws/skeleton. That’s it. He’s abducted, taken to a lab (where the entire book takes place), he’s mostly unconscious speaking very little, the adamantium bonds with his bones and his healing factor prevents him from dying, the scientist tries to control him, fails, Wolverine’s memory is wiped in the process, Wolverine kills everyone and escapes into the wilderness. If you’ve read a load of Wolverine books or even seen the first [...]

    6. My friend is the biggest Wolverine fan in the Milky Way solar system. He loaned me his Weapon X comics to read and to share the 'Wolverine' love. It was very good. I admit that Wolverine isn't my favorite X-Men (that's Gambit), but he's a very intriguing character with a dark side that I find appealing mixed with this desire for justice. What can I say? I love my antiheroes. The man has had his share of tragedy, and seeing how he gained the adamantium helped me to see him in a deeper light.Thank [...]

    7. Barry Windsor-Smith remains one of my all-time favorite comic artists. Completely unique. Smith's writing on the other hand is often poor and this collection is no exception. A weak build-up; jumpy narrative. The "scientists" and security are all doofuses. Enjoy the art, skip the story.

    8. One of those books that I think is a classic for a reason. It's unsettling as hell and pretty creative in the way it tells the story of where all that adamantium came from. After a brief look at Logan before he's captured for the Weapon X program, Windsor-Smith builds the narrative around the scientists and security keeping Logan under lock and key. For them, Logan's an animal to be controlled and tested, not a person; their dry observations contrast sharply with the pain he's clearly suffering [...]

    9. they don't write 'em like they used to. bloody dehumanizing horror more fit for a jim thompson cyberpunk novel than the pages of marvel comics presents. a childhood favorite of mine, it stands the test of time. i guess my dad knew BWS from his conan days, which is why he would buy possibly the bloodiest comic i've ever seen (worse than JTHM? possibly!) for his eager grade school-aged son. it's not all exposed ribs and bloody snrkt's, it's got a surreal cronenberg like i said cyberpunkness to it. [...]

    10. Very good book! So this is the story of how wolverine gets his animatum claws (not X-Men origins wolverine, don't even mention it!) I was surprised this book doesn't have any dialogue from Wolverine himself, its basically the scientists and them installing and testing Wolverines claws till the bloody confrontation at the end! In the end not bad!

    11. Before reading Weapon X, I didn't have a fear of being jammed with cables and needles and wires and mechanical horrors from beyond the imagination of even the folks who made anime like Akira or Ghost in the Shell or Neon Genesis Evangelion. I I really wasn't anticipating that Weapon X could be horrifying? Maybe it's because I know (who doesn't?) the story of Wolverine in the Weapon X program. It's simple! Wolverine is taken into a secret underground research complex, he has Adamantium bonded to [...]

    12. Mükemmel Çizimler, Renkler, Konusu, Anlatımı muazzam bir çizgi roman. Herkese tavsiye ediyorum. Piyasada bulmak biraz zor ama bulursanız kesinlikle kaçırmayın derim. Logan namı değer Wolverine karakterimizin geçmişini anlatıyor. Bir insanın nasıl hayvan olarak hayatına devam etmesini çok güzel anlatmış. Bende tam not aldı. Güzel okumalar.

    13. I'm not sure I like the false ending thing. It went along and I thought things were really happening, and then it turned out Logan had been set up or something (I'm still not sure) so then he had to go back and do it for real. I don't really know what it added. I suppose good for Logan for seeing through it? If it wasn't for that I would have rated it higher. It was gruesome and awful, as it should have been.

    14. When I first saw the illustrations I thought that they were "too much"But after reading it, I think that they were perfect! Very powerful and strong!The story is heartbreakingNo more words can describe Logan's story

    15. Taas kerran "origins"-tarina, mutta hyvää klassisempaa tyyliä vuodelta 1991. Ei vielä tietokoneella värjättyä kuvaa vaan sarjakuvamaisempaa. Muuten olisi 3*, mutta neljäs koska Wolverine!

    16. This is a masterpiece. This story delves into Wolverine's past, and how he went from being Logan to becoming The Wolverine. It's not pretty. It's not humane. It's brutal. It's violent. It's dehumanizing. It is glorious. Barry Windsor-Smith is a master at his craft, and we are delving into the depths of human depravity, where we believe others are less than we are, and we brutally set them to tasks as if they were not human. It is gritty. It is gory. When a couple of critics said that Barry Winds [...]

    17. Durante muchos años se evitó desvelar el origen de Lobezno, Logan era un personaje con un halo de misterio que le daba un gran atractivo a ojos de los lectores, pero evidentemente estos querían saber más de uno de sus personajes favoritos, y tuvo que ser un autor relativamente ajeno a las colecciones de mutantes el que se atreviera a contar lo que hasta entonces era un gran misterio, la forma en que lobezno consiguió sus garras, uno de los episodios de su vida anterior a los x-men que más [...]

    18. Dentro de los personajes del mundillo Marvel, y en la patrulla X en particular, Lobezno ha sido siempre uno de los personajes más carismáticos. Hosco, de instintos casi primarios, y un pasado misterioso hacen de él una de las figuras de las que siempre hemos querido saber más. En este cómic, Barry Windsor Smith consiguió el permiso de la Casa de las Ideas para plantear, en solitario, una posible respuesta a este enigma. Veamos cuál ha sido el resultado.Hay dos cosas que llaman la atenció [...]

    19. 1993, that was the time that Wolverine was still an interesting and enigmatic character for me. A time when he still wasn't making guest appearances in every second marvel comic. A time where, sure he was a force to be reckoned with, but still wasn't as indestructible as he'd later be showned to be.There was still alot of mystery to the character back then. Just how old was he? What exactly was the Weapon X thing? Why would he even want to join a team like the X-Men being such a loner? Is he rea [...]

    20. Es curioso lo que me ocurre con Barry Windsor Smith. Su gran obra en Marvel, Conan, no me atrae lo que debería (quizás porque estoy completamente buscemizado), pero sus pequeñas aportaciones en las colecciones de superhéroes, grapas sueltas, me parecen maravillosas. Los dibujos de aquel Iron Man de Armor Wars, o ese número de la Patrulla X en el que Tormenta luce como nunca, o aquel de Los 4 fantásticos, me fascinan. Y sobre todos ellos, por supuesto, este Arma-X en el que el artista actú [...]

    21. Windsor-Smith's depiction of Logan's transformation into Wolverine still works. This 'origin story' is a magnificent piece of narrative illustration that truely exemplifies the potential of what graphic novels, or more accurately the drawn novel, can and should aspire to be. Windsor-Smith melds words and pictures into a single form in which the letters on the page and where they are placed are as meaningful to the entire narrative as what they are saying. This unification of all the elements of [...]

    22. What a gruesome story. What terrible things were done to Logan. My favorite part of the book is when Logan is hanging over the professor and the professor says to Logan: "You are an animal!" to which Logan responds: "I am Logan! Logan! I am a man! And you are the animal!" That says it al. This story shows who the real animal is. Not Logan, but the people in the Weapon X program. Wolverine is my favorite Marvel character, always has been. It was heartwrenching how these "people" or should I say a [...]

    23. It made me care. Like care-care for Wolverine. That's rare. So far, my two feelings toward the character were: indiference (in the comics) and absolute hate (in the movies). So that says a lot about my enjoyment of this book (I even considered giving it 5 stars).I must say, the structure it's weird, but if you persist you'll be rewarded. Plus, it's one of those stories where you don't need any background info to understand it. I really recommend it.

    24. The second book Egmont put out because of the Wolverine movie and this is a really quality re-pring of a comic published in Finland in the 90s. Why Egmont bothers to put our reprints of comics that are very easily available in the second hand book shop, but they, so here it is.At least this reprint has very good paper quality and printing quality.But the story has too much dream sequenses for my taste.And the art is truly magnificent as one might expect from Barry Windsor-Smith.Timo

    25. Well, if I have to be unable to sleep in on a Saturday, at least I get to read cool stuff like this. I wasn't a huge fan of the art, and I found the first few pages quite confusing, but then I was in and I was hooked. I really felt for Logan in this one. A lot of the comics I've read lately have been OK, but not very emotionally affecting, but this one really worked for me. With so much great material out there for Logan, it's really hard not to read more and more about him.

    26. Pretty weak attempt to tell the story of Wolverine being 'created' by the secret government 'Weapon X' project is made interesting by some mind-blowingly impressive Barry Windsor-Smith art.Lots of good action scenes, but the cast is pretty flat the story tends to wander too much. Can't tell if Smith is trying too hard to be clever or he's just not as good a writer as he is an artist.

    27. Increíbles los dibujos contenidos en este comic, acompañados de un guión violento y oscuro. Los colores son característicos de la época, pero eso no le resta puntos.Mis aplausos al arte, que podría tener guión "silencioso" e igual sería una obra maestra.

    28. "Note the rhythmic intercutting between disparate images in the thirteen page prologue alone. Note the thematic development, repetition and resolution. The lighting is a good example. Note the acting 'between the panels' -- the broken hotel window panes that I didn't notice until my third reading."

    29. The ultimate Wolverine comic. In the movie they devoted like 2 seconds to the making of weapon x. The comic book shows the extensive process that took days and all the ways the military tempered with his brains.
