    Dog Logan is not a character I ever care to read about again. Woof! This was such a disappointment in what has been an otherwise fun title, that I wish it could just be magically wiped from my memory.sighThe main story is that Logan takes a group of the students on a trip to the Savage Land to learn teamwork...Wolverine Style!Instead of it turning into one of those corporate Trust Retreats, Wolverine's time-traveling half brother Dog shows up to 'Learn Them Kids a Lesson', and prove that he's the better brother.*vomits, wipes mouth, gets back up*Lots of ridiculous dialogue and a few flashbacks later, they load up and go home, after learning the most important lesson of all.Friendship = Family*vomits again, lies beside toilet for a few minutes*Plus, it's always fun to see what a pussy Logan was before his mutant powers manifested!The last issue is some weird Peek Into the Future, where Logan learns that just because you have access to time machines, doesn't mean you should use them. There were a couple of (almost) interesting developments with Idie and the Hellfire Club that make this one useful, but the vast majority of this volume is garbage.Get this review and more at:

    Um. Was anyone clamoring to see Dog Logan, Wolverine's 100+ year old half-brother in a modern story? Really? I sure as hell wasn't.I mean, this isn't bad per se. The core of the Savage Land stuff was pretty good, and it was nice to see some of the students, in particular Eyeboy, start to come into their own. The glimpse into a possible future (now negated by the highly-publicized Death of Wolverine? Nah, he'll be back) was actually really cool. And the onwards march to whatever the Hellfire Club has up their sleeves is interesting.But the whole thing would have been a hell of a lot better if Wolverine's 100+ year old time-traveling half-brother had stayed at home.

    Good, but didn't wow me or tickle me while reading it. Maybe I just wasn't in the mood for what Aaron & Perez brought, or maybe they were off for a little while.Savage Land? Yawn. *Another* family member of Logan? Stretches credulity, but I'll allow it. Flashbacks? Ugh, I give. Logan's rival show him up, then gets taken back down almost at the last second? What. The. Hell.I did enjoy Wolverine messing with the kids' heads. And the glimpse of future Academy people and their dim memories.

    This teeters on 2.5 stars for me...Another backstory adjustment for Logan/Wolverine/James Howlett? Umm...OK? Oh wait, you're going to do it à-la Jeph Loeb? Wispy drawings in different hues and trying to appear mysterious? NO. C'mon J.A, you are way better than that.I thought part of it was familiar...then I realized, Dog Logan shows up in Jason Aaron's Astonishing Spidey & Wolvie that had them stuck going back and forth through time...this explains everything. Other than why they decided to throw him back into this story...It was going well enough with Wolverine taking the dangerous/loose cannon kids into the Savage Land to prove themselves. I did like him getting in their heads to mess with them a bit and then seeing what would happen. QQ again shines, Idie, meh, Broo, kinda funny to see him now as a mindless Brood and not our favourite intellectual cutiepie killer alien. Eye Boy, Shark Girl, each have some moments, and Genesis does as well.What we see near the end, is that the rival school (and I don't mean Cyclops') is stealing students from Wolverine and co...this is going to be interesting, but they wasted far too much ink on Dog Logan here.

    The story starts off pretty cool but a twist mid-way ruins it, so this one is also skippable. The cool killer wielding all manner of futuristic weapons turns out to have serious daddy issues! Laughable! And why does Wolverine sound like such a pussy all of a sudden? There are plenty of flashbacks from the past which are drawn in a different style. This makes them stand out, but they add little to the story.Nobody worries much about Groo and the Hellfire Club when Wolverine takes the kids to the deadly Savage Land and leaves them on their own. It's not going very well with the kids doing their best to not work together and it gets worse when Wolverine's brother Dog pops out of nowhere.(view spoiler)[Dog was sent to the future by time diamonds and has gathered an arsenal of deadly weapons that overpower even Wolverine. After knocking him around for a while Dog reveals his intention of giving Wolverine's students an even greater challenge to prove he is the better teacher. He transports robots, cowboys and cavemen into the Savage Land - all pretty dushy even after they band together. After calling three groups of enemies for the most puerile reason - to satisfy his insecurities - Dog actually has the nerve to have his ass handed to him by men with clubs, men with fire weapons and robots with lasers. The last one would be ok, kinda. Still I think he has no excuse. He has to go berserk to finally defeat them off-screen - Van Damme wannabe - then he turns on the kids. Wolverine pops out of nowhere and allows Dog to spend some energy beating him up. Then Dog teleports away, admiting defeat, only to be beaten up by his future self. How pathetic is that? Wolverine takes the kids back, all but the Blob who chooses to follow Sauron to the Hellfire academy. (hide spoiler)]

    Continues to be an entertaining series. I like what is going on in All New and Uncanny, but the overly serious tone of those comics can be off-putting. I enjoy the humor and hilarious character interaction Jason Aaron seems to have a knack for.The interesting part of this series seems to be the growth of the characters. We get to see Wolverine struggling with his duty as Head Master. We see Quentin fighting against the future he was shown. It's all great stuff. Even though the part with the Savage Land was entertaining, it was the small glimpse into the future I liked the best. The real problem with when they show a future event is that it seems to be completely forgotten once the writer who revealed that future leaves the book. I know that Jason Aaron is no longer working on the X-Books, and it takes away from the revealed future, knowing must of it will just be written away. Perez's art was good. I liked his cartoony style. Though sometimes Wolverine's eyes did look awfully far apart. If your someone who wants to get into the X-Men and read a fun story, I would say Wolverine and the X-Men is a good choice.

    O how I love thee, WatXM. I love your stupid jokes, your tiny little panels, your ridiculous mutant highschoolers with their ridiculous powers. I love that you teach me about X-continuity that I never knew existed. I love your moments of brazen, comicbooky badassery and your embarrassing gooey sentiment. I love your dinosaurs and your android cowboys, your lasers and your bigger lasers. I love that every issue feels like The Magic School Bus with explosions. I love your style, your aesthetic. I love that your school feels like a school. I love Bamf! jokes and Doop jokes and Krakoa jokes. I love that every character feels unique. I love your densely-written pages, your overall don't-give-a-fuck-ness. I love Glob Herman, and I don't love you getting rid of him. I don't love that you're like the most expensive comic paperbacks in print. But fucking A, bro. You can't have everything.

    This series continues to be enjoyable. We find Wolverine taking the "misfits" of his class to the Savage Land for a field trip, only to be ambushed by his brother, Dog, who hasn't been seen since the ORIGIN series. A little campy in spots, but really not bad. Also, the Hellfire Club storyline continues to simmer (and comes to a head in the next volume.) There's some time travel tossed in to keep things interesting too.Overall a little better than recent X-Men comics, at least to me.

    This one was kind of sad, Wolverine's half brother Dog Logan showed up, Broo is healed from his head shot wound, but doesn't remember who he is and acting like feral animal, and Idie has joined the Hellfire Club :( hoping everything works out in the next volume.

    Another crossover, but thankfully it was short. The Dog storyline promises to be at least fairly interesting, and I do like how the kids are starting to work together a little bit.Unfortunately, the volume just wasn't funny in the way the other ones were. As a counter-balance, it was only passing serious.Sure, there were some pretty good visuals that told lots of interesting, if undeveloped, tales, and the implications are fairly long-ranging. If anything, this volume teases out some new and possibly epic timeline snafus, because, of course, we're talking about time travel.We're not in an X-Men, or a Fantastic Four, or a Guardians of the Galaxy without time travel.It makes me wonder with rabid-eyed fascination just who really has the Time Gem in the MCU. Namor? Howard the Duck? What the hell do I need to do to get some spoilers here? Google it? Alas, even that is going to make my head spin like a GRRM fan with his head so far up a usenet feed trying to outguess an author who reads his fans speculations just so he can thwart them.I'm talking to you, MCU.Okay. Enough ranting. On to more reading.

    A great arc story :) The Savage Land with Prof. Wolverine :) it is awesome seeing the kids fighting Dinosaurs, cavemen, old Westerns and Robots from the future :) :) :) On top of that a bit of Sibling rivalry between the Logans :) I didn't think that they had a proper fight though not like the one from the movie that was awesome!!! we didn't get one here maybe it was out of its place as we was supposed to watch the kids doing there thing :) but still a good fight between them could have been a plus :) At the end, 25 years into the future, how the world change, the school changed and Wolverine is older was awesome :) but I don't think they will stick with that future :) something will disturb the peace always will but the many stories that waiting for us are very very interesting... also liked the idea of the Hellfire academy that we saw its beginnings in the last volume An enjoyable read :) and its one of my favorites titles :) Covers

    This is where there were some serious changes in the creative team. The arist in this volume just couldn't compare to the last couple. There's some talent and great line work and details, but I can't stand these character designs. As for the story, it's decent. You get a bit more of Wolverine's origin and a new villain in the mix. The action is decent, and again some great moments of Logan and the students. Unfortunately some of the new students have real attitudes that are getting under my skin (I'm looking at you, Shark-Girl). On the flip side, Eye-Boy is becoming one of my favorite characters. Just. Awesome. There's some inconsistencies and plenty of convenient outs, but overall I still really enjoyed this. I didn't like the villain (too similar to Sabertooth for my liking) and the art was a serious step down. I do like where it's going. And the last issue here gave some awesome hints at what's next. Personally, I can't wait. And I can't wait for some more of the co-series to be out in paperback form. Keep on board with this folks.

    Another enjoyable volume of WatXM. The Savage Land arc is amusing mainly because it's a fun, light action-adventure. The coolest part is the fact that it ties into Wolverine's Origin in a way that nothing else has except for Whedon's Astonishing X-Men. The result does a great job of bringing Logan's character full circle ... and sets up interesting plots for the future.The final issue is the star of the volume though, with its focus on characterization and change -- the things that Aaron excels at.

    The whole series has been leading up to this.. The Hellfire Saga! And what is it? More fun, more silliness, and a zero in the threat scale. These pesky villains and their crazy plots! Its a fun read.

    Much like Volume 5, the arc's premise doesn't do much for me, but the progression of this series' characters is still quite enjoyable.

    This review originally appeared on my blog,Shared Universe Reviews. The fifth volume of Wolverine and the X-men is a transitional volume. It’s not breaking new ground but it’s not retreading any of the previous stories. Since the very first issue Jason Aaron has shown an interest in doing things differently as far as X-men comics of the last ten years go. Because of that, the series has had some tonal shifts. The first two volumes set the tone. The tone of the third and fourth volumes was different due to the influence of a story outside of the title. Volume five seems to be establishing a new, revised, tone of the series.Now that Jason Aaron and his rotating group of artists are done telling their obligatory Avengers vs. X-men crossover tie-on issues and the focus is back on the Jean Grey School. A new (but also old) teacher comes to the school and a few new students are introduced. Aaron is setting up his pieces on the board and is preparing for his next big storyline. It’s a big of a shame that all the momentum he and artists Chris Bachalo and Nick Bradshaw in the first ten or so issues has nearly all been wiped out by Avengers vs. X-men which was a pretty lame crossover. Aaron now has the opportunity to steer the book in ad different direction but that also means he has to rebuild some of the momentum he lost. That’s why this volume feels like he’s introducing characters and plot lines to be explored further in the issues yet to come.It’s somewhat unfortunate that Aaron is focusing so much on what’s still to come. He’s not really paying attention to what came before. The new Hellfire Club is barely present and for the few scenes they do show up they’re also in a transitional phase. They’re planning and scheming how they’ll bring destruction and ruin to the Jean Grey School. The bulk of this volume is comprised of a three part story that, sadly, feels like a bad B-movie. The purpose of the story isn’t to be a good story on its own, instead it’s to place the characters in the right emotional setting for a story that is still on the way. I didn’t expect to find such a bland story on this title. I’m pretty disappointed that the quality in the stories didn’t improve after the distractions that were the Avengers vs. X-men stories. The first and last stories collected in the volume were a cut above the three part circus story but I’m hoping this will be the only disappointing volume in the series.This title needs less grease paint . . .The sixth volume is a distinct improvement on the fifth. It’s just a tad less enjoyable than the first two volumes. The issues in this volume are part of the new beginning for the title that the fifth volume was preparing for. The catch is that we’re not quite. This is a new beginning, that’s certain and Aaron’s writing seems more confident than it was in the last few issues. The new characters introduced in the previous stories get a chance to shine. Aaron’s taking the time to get to know the new characters and how they interact and what makes them tick. Even though the series has been filled with new characters, Aaron hasn’t taken the chance to focus on them completely and it’s nice to see him do that with this volume.and more beards.The story consists of Wolverine taking some of his more troublesome students as well as three new students to the Savage Land to teach them about survival. Of course, once they get there the whole things turns into a mess and despite Wolverine’s feelings of ineptitude, the students actually learn something. In the midst of all the chaotic superhero action, Aaron finds the time to continue planting seeds for his next big story. I thought for sure volume 6 was going to be the story he’s preparing for but it turns out it’s not. It’s still set up but man, it’s much more enjoyable set up than that weird circus story.The last issue collected in this volume is pure teaser but it makes for an excellent single issue story. That’s what makes it work, actually. It’s a teaser in narrative form with some time travel mixed it. Very good stuff and it also contributes to the advancement of one of Aaron’s goals a writer for Marvel: giving every male character in the Marvel universe a beard. Wolverine and several Bamfs get a beard in this last story and Wolverine’s beard is full and white like he’s getting ready to move to the North Pole. I loved it.Ramon Pérez did all of the pencil art for the sixth volume. His style is more cartoonish than previous artists who have worked on Wolverine and the X-men, even more so than Nick Bradshaw. Bradshaw’s art is cartoony but it has a slight stiffness to it. Pérez art is very fluid and expressive. I’d rather have read a comic with more art by Chris Bachalo or Nick Bradshaw but Pérez does a good job filling in. His style was well suited to the energetic action sequences of the Savage Land.The best thing about volume 6 is that it got me excited about the next volume. Aaron is planning a big story, with issue #29 he’s telling the reader flat out that he’s planning a big story, but he’s not quite ready yet. In the meantime though, enjoy these good X-men stories. I’m sure he’s sorry about the circus story but it did serve its purpose (it help Aaron and Bradshaw pay the bills) and it really could have been worse. Thankfully, Aaron replaced clowns with dinosaurs for the follow up story. Hopefully the next storyline bring the focus back to the Jean Grey School because that’s where all the real crazy stuff happens. I’m looking forward to it.

    I'm relatively new to the Marvel comic books, but I'm starting to feel like every single conflict and confrontation in this world is based on fighting! Aren't loads of characters sold as geniuses? Aren't the Hellfire Club a bunch of business men and tech people? Where are the political machinations and intelligent plans that you'd expect from people like that? Surely if you want to fight the X-Men and win you'd need to challenge them where they're weakest, not where they're strongest.

    Wolverine takes his troublesome students on a team building exercise to the Savage Land. Only problem is that Dog Logan turns up. This is a fun book with a lot of flashbacks to Logan as a child. The students, as always are entertaining. The lure of the Hellfire school becomes more present as well. A very good read.

    *2.5*Worst! Field Trip! Ever!The storyline in this reminded me of a storyline in the old Naruto TV series where the school sends all the kids to survive in a forest to prepare for an exam (and you thought studying for your tests/exams/finals were hard lol) and this storyline could've been fun and interesting if Wolverine's half-brother didn't show up! (And it's not Sabretooth! Did I miss something or are the X-Men movies to blame?) and mostly, the storyline was just okay, but the last issue was pretty good because it involved a flash-forward!Overall, It was kinda boring to say the least and the artwork was a bit meh.

    Nice modern X-men tale. Wolverine sees that some of his students are at risk of straying from the school, so he takes them to the Savage Land for a survival exercise to bring the group together. In true teen fashion, the kids squabble their way through dinosaur attacks and old drama. But things turn more serious when Wolverine's time-traveling half brother shows up, incapacitating the hero with the goal of basically showing the kids that their headsman is a jerk.Toward that end, he transports cavemen, cattle rustlers and robots to the Savage Land, reckoning that a good scrap will show the group the light--and paint him in a better light than his brother. Things go wrong, of course, and writer Jason Aaron revels in the absurdity of the situation, while still treating the core conflict as an occasion for character growth.It's not an arc for the ages, but I enjoyed the dialogue and the disparate personalities coming together. Wolverine's brother was a new character for me, and I wasn't too drawn to his insecurities, but the continuity isn't too intrusive. Overall, the story is light, with plenty of humor and some consequences, particularly for one student who needed a new direction. A nice read for X-men fans (and thankfully unconnected to any other event).Read digital issues.

    Wait...WTF just happened here? At the end of the last trade Broo woke up as a snarling mess and started to attack them! Now he's on a leash and they're in the Savage Land? What did we miss?Dog Logan? Wolverines half brother? WTF?This must be the WTF issue cause I got a lot of those!As for these X-Men/X-Students....they're such hard characters to enjoy... There's a dude with eyeballs, a pink blobby skeleton guy, a were-shark girl, an emo kid with a pale complexion and long arms and legs, a rocky faerie girl, and that jerk Quire the anarchist telepath with a telepathic shotgun! This stuff is just weird! I love seeing Wolvie and some of the other OG X-Men as X-teachers but the writers are trying so hard to make this team likable or even edgy that it just goes over the top! This particular trade is very cluttered and confusing and I don't understand why they keep drawing Beast differently! The last story with old man Wolvie was just a waste!

    This is a stronger volume than those that precede it, and perhaps I'm setting Aaron aside too soon. The threads begin to gather nicely here, as Wolverine leads the students the book has primarily focused on to the Savage Land for a survival course. I haven't read Origin--the miniseries or the later ongoing series either--so I don't know if Dog Logan is introduced here or just brought back. He could prove interesting, although the only part of his beating on Wolverine that I believed at all was when Wolverine was allowing himself to be beaten on towards the end of the book. Still, the showdown with the Hellfire Club (at least for the moment) that is building and that occurs in the next volume is well set-up and plainly in the open here which strengthens this volume for me. I guess I just wish there was a bit stronger, more obvious throughline for me to enjoy as I go instead of only noticing/appreciating it in retrospect.

    one word...FAMILY. Aaron's writing is a home run on this book, after 5 volumes of a new jean grey school Wolverine gets his new x-men team and it was worth it. Wolverine dumps his new team of kids into the savage land for a make or break lesson. At first we think trial by fire, nothing out of the ordinary for Logan, but no its more than that. The young team needs to work together and Wolverine knows that and plans accordingly hand picking the whole team for different reasons. Aaron bounces back and forth beautifully in the story and we see why he is getting a lot of good work, its subtle but is firm writing with intend and no side garbage. We also get a GREAT wolverine (origin continuation) mini story wrapped up in this story and a and its a winner as well. overall great art, great story, great writing. easy 5 stars. Eye boy (man) is growing on me !

    This has been one of my favorite Marvel titles since it started almost two years ago. It was one of those things where I thought, "This could never work, could it?" and I was so happy to be proven wrong. The issues in this title are nearly always a breath of fresh air, and I love that Aaron is avoiding for the most part getting sucked into Bendis' stuff with his X-books--not that I mind Bendis' X-stuff, but I just really love how separate a thing Wolverine and the X-men seems to be. All this being said, I really didn't dig the stuff with Dog or the savage land as much as everyone else, but I'm still giving this book five stars for three things: 1) an interesting set-up for what comes next, 2) the fact that Aaron took a character named 'Eye-boy' and actually made him flippin' cool, and 3) issue 29, which was absolutely brilliant.

  • Christian Zamora-Dahmen

    I knew the book was left in an odd place after so many issues devoted to the AvX crossover event. The art for this entire story was subpar, same with the writing. More and more it becomes evident that Wolverine as a headmaster is just a weird idea that makes little sense and it only makes him look so out of character.The Savage Land storyline lasted for too long, and this Dog character's motivation was silly in a very unfunny way.The flashbacks did have their moments of beauty, but the rest was just off.And then we got Wolverine giving these loooooong speech about school, family and responsibilities... This is just no Wolverine.

  • Justyn Rampa

    Again, I have subtracted one star for the absence of Chris Bacchalo;-(That being said, this story featured Dog (Wolverine's half-brother whom I was not familiar with) and that took a little getting used to. The class went to the Savage Land which was also a little wacky, but as always Jason Aaron really nailed with his excellent ability to write characters.I suppose ultimately that's why I've stuck with this title even though the art is less than awesome. Well, that and I'm completely obsessed with Idie and Broo:-!

    Interesting story line. Don't love Dog, so I guess I didn't really like the plot of this one so much. I did really like how the field trip really gave our students (old and new) some growth opportunity and bits of much needed character development.The last issue of the volume (#29) was really great. We get to see emotional, rambling Professor Logan give a speech to his student body, and then old Logan and adult Eye-Boy (using his mutant abilities!) reminisce. Ended on a high note.

  • Silas

    I liked that this volume had a bit more Wolverine in it than previous ones did, and even a tie-in to Wolverine: Origin, albeit a rather weird one. The story itself was rather interesting, with Wolverine taking an active role as a teacher at the school. I liked that this book showed that this was not easy for him, and the last issue that showed the future where some of the kids were grown up and actually effective adults was quite interesting, as well.

    These guys make it a little difficult by having all the X-books constantly crossing over. They have to let you read just one book once in a while, right?I think the central conceit of this particular issue -- Wolverine's self-doubt -- is undermined by the fact that everything he's doing is working very well. Also confusing . . . . that they are really interested in extending the deus ex machina from the Wolverine & Spider-Man miniseries. OK.A fine book. But nothing to remember.
