‘Wolverine’ #37 is a nice tour of Logan hotspots

Can Wolverine kill his remaining three clones? With Hulk by his side, how could they lose?

It’s the Fall of X, but if you’re reading Wolverine #37 this week, it’s more about wrapping up loose ends. In the case of Logan, there are three of them, and they’re all clones that were leaked into the world after Beast made many. It’s up to Wolverine to track them down in this week’s issue, and along for the ride is a green friend. Or is he a foe?

The answer to that question is a common one for Hulk and Wolverine: It’s complicated. And Wolverine’s life is more complicated than ever thanks to Orchis, which writer Benjamin Percy outlines well in the opening scenes. Threats are aplenty, but sometimes you have to take out the trash even when the world is on fire. Throw in Hulk, and you can expect violence, twists and turns, and some nervous friendliness between the two.

This issue does a lot from cover to cover. That includes three location changes, some surprise appearances, and the tracking down of all three clones. Frankly, I’m surprised Percy didn’t stretch out the tracking down and killing of the clones into more issues. That’s a good thing for readers, as this issue isn’t decompressed in the slightest.

Cleverly, Percy uses each clone to send Wolverine to locations important to his life. Makes sense since the clones are shells of Logan and probably want to find some comfort. Somewhat conveniently, Hulk pops in, but since Hulk’s off-killing monsters in his own series, why not tag along to kill a few more? Essentially, this issue reads like a road trip through Wolverine’s most important locations, which makes it kind of fun to figure out the last one after seeing where he goes in to find the first two.

Data pages from Jeff Bannister help make the search for clones a lot easier to understand. It’s earned how he finds them and how quickly at that.

It’s possible this issue tries to do too much, however. Little things like how Hulk is wrapped up at the end or what happens to the sword Wolverine grabs aren’t explained. The heroes take out clones like it’s easy, while Hulk seems to keep the monster at bay and switch back with some ease (though he does complain about it). The captioning and the inclusion of a key villain in the end add some long-term value to the narrative, but it’s mostly an action book wrapping up loose ends.

Juan Jose Ryp draws the heck out of this issue with big epic splash pages and plenty of blood. Colors by Frank D’Armata add nice skin tones and hues to scenes, making the world a bit more lived in. Hulk is huge and looks accurate to how Nic Klein is drawing him.

Wolverine #37 does a lot in a single issue, wrapping up a loose end so Orchis can take center stage. There’s plenty here for action fans to sink their teeth into, which is pretty much a guarantee with Benjamin Percy’s entire run.

Packs a lot into one issue with three location changes and three clones as targets
Nice Hulk and Wolverine team up
A surprise villain adds some value in the end
Some convenience blips are shooed away due to lack of space
Mostly a nice tour of Wolverine hot spots
