I once knew that kid, Amadeus Cho. I've got to admit; it was quite some time ago. He had long hair. He looked very debonair. Plus he was listening to the rock-band, 'Status Quo'. Well, it was either them, or something sung by the multi-talented Writer / Artist: Frank Cho; and Publisher: Marvel Comics, in April 2013. Groovy, baby!

Using GENERAL terms, answer the following 4 questions about this SECOND PART of 'Savage'.
  • WHAT'S THE MAIN THRUST OF THIS TALE: Avid breast watcher, Amadeus Cho, has to gauge from 'the Chief' the origins of the Forbidden Island he's currently perusing, plus the whereabouts of Wolverine and Shanna too. 
  • ARE THE MAIN OBJECTIVES ACHIEVED: Yeah. In part. Not that it does anybody any good.
  • ANYTHING ELSE HAPPEN: Shanna gets turned into a kebab, whilst Wolverine turns into mouthwash.
  • HOW DOES THIS STORY END: With Wolverine ready to kick ass and take names. Spit!

All in all, what is the most memorable SENTENCE OR CONVERSATION spoken in this issue?
On both a verbal and visceral level the 'Cho and Chief' scene was a right hoot for me to read. And I particularly got a kick out of that bit where...

THE CHEIF: Who's this 'Calvin', this invisible person, you keep talking to?
CHO: Calvin? Oh! Calvin is the artificial intelligence in my suit. This three-piece suit is made with Hyper-Dyne fibres similar to the Vindicator suit from Alpha Flight. Unlike that suit, it's powered by Quantum Folds, Isometric Solar Threads, and Bio-Electric Feedback. The cochlear implant allows me to communicate...
THE CHEIF: [Has a Blank Expression Etched Upon His Face]
CHO: 'Calvin' is my 'spirit guide'.
THE CHEIF: Ah. Of course. My spirit guide is a beaver that sometimes appears in my dreams.

Ha! Now what's not to like about that?

What are the BEST bits about this issue?
(+) As I've alluded to in my previous answer, I laughed my ass off for most of the introductory sequences between the Chief and Amadeus Cho; especially that part where Amadeus kept on looking at that woman's breasts. Heck, they were so chock full of character and humor, it more than made up for the lack of overall plot.
(+) I also enjoyed the scenes between Wolverine and Shanna too. From now on in whenever I hear the word 'Mississippi', I won't forget Wolverine's face looking up at her ass.
(+) The last third of this tale really 'amped it up' in the 'dread department', huh? I just hope that Shanna can walk away from this adventure unscathed. She's a great character, with a great... ahem... pair of assets.
(+) Frank Cho, you are a God. Say no more.

What are the WORST bits about this issue?
(-) At a push, I'd say that the 'origin recap' was a mite yawn-some to follow compared to the rest of this fun loving book. Not greatly. Agreed. But tonally it felt a bit too long-winded and sterile in execution. Flat even. 

Choose TWO CHARACTERS out of this comic book, and then compare them to two REAL LIFE PEOPLE.
CHEIF DAN GEORGE AS THE CHEIF: Just take a good long look at George, because even his 'Outlaw Josey Wales' co-star, Clint Eastwood, would tell you that he's the spit of all Shamans everywhere!

WOLFGANG AMADEUS MOZART AS AMADEUS CHO: Well, they both have the same name, so that must mean something, right?

What QUOTE would be appropriate to sum-up this story?
'Scientists now believe that the primary biological function of breasts is to make males stupid' -- Dave Barry

What SONG, THEME-TUNE, or MELODY, would complement this tale, as well as add and extra dimension to it by default?
'TOUCH ME' BY SAMANTHA FOX: Mainly because of the amount of tits in this tale, a small part of me feels compelled to compare it to this song sung by a very well-endowed... ahem... singer.

Overall this was another fantastic installment of 'Savage Wolverine'. The art was very clean and evolving. The humor was very tongue and cheek. Plus the story showed a lot of character, but was let down by its flaccid 'origin' section.

Still, never mind, huh? All in all I'm really rocking and rolling with this new title, and I hope that all you Logan lovers out there will spread the word that this book is the best of the bunch. Snitt-Snitt!

GIVE IT, IT'S DUES: If This Comic Book Was Unit of Currency, It Would be a Denomination That Doesn't Take Any Sh*t From Any Funny Money.
