Look out here comes' Sabre-teeth. They've travelled here all the way from Hayward Heath. Logan wished this wasn't so. He'd rather do his impression of Mogo. You know the Green Lantern planet that eats a lot of beef. Hey! These people eat beef too. Writer: Jeph Loeb; Artist: Simone Bianchi; and Publisher: Marvel Comics in September 2012. Except for the vegans of course.

So what’s the STORY morning glory?
If you stuck yourself in a washing machine for a whole day and then allowed a porn star to grope your gonads, you'd have a pretty good idea what Wolverine feels like in this second part of 'Sabertooth Reborn'. Confused -- yet rather aroused.

  • Well, could you imagine what it would be like in Old Logan's shoes at the moment?
  • He's just found out that his once dead bad-ass 'brother', Sabertooth, is like Justin Bieber's musical career -- plentiful -- plus he can't get away from the sod either.
  • Still, as luck would have it, a very shapely red-head with a nice butt comes to his -- BOOOOM -- rescue. Plus she is also someone that has surprisingly strong ties to the main villain behind this adventure as well.
  • Romulus.  Ohhhhh!!!!!!!

To be continued after a pose is stuck and a name declared.

What is the most memorable SENTENCE OR CONVERSATION spoken in this issue?
I loved reading Wolverines opening monologue, especially the part where he says...

'Ever had one of those recurring nightmares? Some people dream about being in a plane crash. Or drowning. Or getting buried alive. One thing they all have in common -- you always wake-up before you die. Now imagine that very same nightmare. Only now you are awake'.

Sounds very ominous, doesn't it? And I thought that it worked very well in conjunction with his battle with the Sabre-teeth also.

What was the BEST thing about this issue?
I have to say that I did like two things in this issue. (1) The surprise revelation at the end of the book really did surprise me. (2) Although the overall vibe of this tale was more action than plot, that's not to say that writer extraordinaire, Jeph Loeb, didn't put some meat onto its collective bones.

What was the WORST thing about this issue?
I am afraid to say that this yarn was a very quick read. One minute I was going through the opening monologue. Then the girl with the nice ass showed up. And POW! Finit-o la' music-a. So to speak. 

What was the most CREATIVE thing about this issue?
STORY: Creatively there wasn't that much innovation in this issue really. Well, apart from the ending I suppose. Plus the one thing I've never seen before was the mass Sabre-teeth on Logan fight.

ART: I did appreciate quite a few of Simone Bianchi artistic touches in this tale. Like the way the red-head's body dissolved into the panel in silhouetted form for example. And I have to say that the huddled battle scene was as explosive as the explosion that came afterwards.  

If you had to CAST TWO CHARACTERS in this comic book, who would they be and why?
SABERTOOTH: I'm going to go all sixties / eighties with this casting call. As I'd bet my bottom dollar that a more youthful Jeff Bridges would be a perfect match for this scraggy sod...

WOLVERINE: ... where as the erstwhile yet roguish British Actor, Stanley Baker, could pull off a Canadian accent just as good as he could stick a spear in the film 'Zulu'.

If this issue had a MOVIE TAG LINE, what would it be?
Round One Ended On A Right Blast. Where As Round Two Ended On A Shot Of A Nice Ass.

If this issue were a MOVIE, an OBJECT, or a piece of MUSIC, what would that be and why? 
Now I know that this might sound somewhat strange, but with all that fur-ball fighting going on in this book, I can not help but compare it to kittens fighting in a basket -- or somewhere else confining.


FINAL thoughts...
Although this wasn't the best story I've read by writer, Jeph Loeb, that's not to say that it wasn't a step up from last issue or a very enjoyable either. Honestly, it was a good action packed adventure with a nice and a pithy pace that sustained from the very beginning to the very end.

Oh! Maybe that's why it was a quick read, right? Too much enjoyment equals too quick a read? If so... errr... ooops! Can't win them all. As Logan surely knows, ha!
