dark_noldor's Daken: Dark Wolverine #1 - Empire, Pt. 1 review

A fashion way to start things

The Good - This issue was a good read, ´cause Marjorie and Daniel used concepts that are commom to us, like Daken´s ambiguos sexual behavior (dating women and men, just to achieve his goals), his desire for tasty and quality things, the dillema of killing his father (like in the beggining of the book) and the fact that he is looking for power. This initiative of lurking out of Romulus´and Logan´s shadows, in an attempt to create his own, is a very good premise. It´s also a good read because of the mystery involving the older character who felt betrayed by Daken, what did Daken wanted with the fashion little guy (Donatello) and what are their roles in Logan being sent to Hell: that spice things a little. I guess Camuncoli´s art is at his best in this issue and I credit D´armatta´s colors, it made all the difference; also with this inker from Italy (Onofrio Cattachio) Camuncoli´s art improved a lot, it´s a good combination. The history of Daken in the last pages was pretty good too
The Bad - Although it was an "invitation" from the mysterious character, I think that brawl was unnecessary (the scenes were ok, nice moves and the only action of the book, but it was a little pointless), also I´m not enjoyng Raven´s part in this arc story. 
The Verdict - If you put together the writing and the art you have a solid book, worthy picking up.

    Summary:          The issue opens up with Daken atop a hill, watching Wolverine  through a sniper scope.  Through his inter-monologue, we learn of Daken's aspirations to be a good man.-the kind that people talk about with respect rather than pity.  He appears earnest in his desire to be a good man.  The one obstacle standing in his way, is his father, Wolverine.  Wolverine's mere existence fills Daken with a  fiery hate and fury that drives him insane.  Daken feels it's his destiny to give wolve...

    Daken: Dark Wolverine Issue 1 0

    Well, it's time for a new Dark Wolverine series, not even a month after the last Dark Wolverine series ended. On the bright side though, now I don't have to read all the past Wolverine books to get a sense for Daken and Romulus and everything going on. Instead I get to jump right into Daken: Dark Wolverine! Excitement building!   The issue opens with 50 years ago, Wolverine is stumbling about and falls into a heap of mud as we hear Daken monologuing about how much he hates Wolverine. So much so...
