duo_forbidden's Daken: Dark Wolverine #8 - Collision, Pt. 2 review

Avatar image for duo_forbidden

Will Daken and Laura team up, or will he end up betraying her?

Synopsis: What is Daken's goal?

What's Good?

I'm not going to lie, I hate crossovers between a book I read and another book I don't read, and Daken: Dark Wolverine is that book. I'm not really a huge fan of Daken even though he's the Wolverine Logan should be. After the first part in X-23, I didn't know what to expect with this book plot wise. Luckily, the second part of this crossover shines. Daniel Way shows readers what kind of person Daken is and what effect he has in the city of Madipoor. He controls the city. Being manipulative is his way along with being ruthless. Way is also joined by Marjorie Liu, and while this is Daken's book, I think Liu adds some old and new characterization with both Laura and Gambit.

Personally, I prefer Marco Checchetto's artwork over Ryan Stegman from X-23 #8. The opening pages looked wonderful like a real brutal battle took place between Laura and Daken. Considering the kind of person Daken is, the dark atmosphere around him and in Madipoor is perfect. Besides Daken, Gambit also stands out thanks to his powers. Things get even more graphic as the issue continues.

What's Bad?

I don't really have any complaints. The plot moved along quite nicely.

Overall: Daken: Dark Wolverine #8 was very impressive. I'm hoping Marjorie Liu can follow up in X-23 #9.

    Beautiful! 0

    Cover: Not much going on here, and very misleading.  Can't say I like it very much, though the DNA touches are pretty cool (though wrong...) The Good: There is so much good going on in this issue.  The art is some of the best I've seen yet in this run, and it is some of the best I have seen in Marvel comics, period.  We also have to give credit to the writers; they set up a very nice pace and a couple of very cool confrontations.  This is mostly a fight packed issue, and that works very well...

    Issue #8 of Daken: Dark Wolverine.   The Story: Daken and Laura talked.Then Daken talked to Colcord.Laura finds him and starts to tortue him but he sedates her.Daken knocks out Gambit.   The Good: The conversation between Daken and Colcord was very interesting and it naturally has to do with what is happening in the ongoing.Laura torturing Colcord was quite satisfactory since obviously this guy is a pure dick.Also Checchetto art is simply GORGEOUS,this is the guy taht is going to do the art for ...
