Wolverine: Manifest Destiny # 2 of 4

Writer: Jason Aaron
Artist: Stephen Segovia
Publisher: Marvel
Published: December 2008

Here we have part 2 of the Manifest Destiny Wolvie series. This issue picks up with Wolvies old girlfriend ordering his death by the Black Dragon Death Squad. Now they aren't called Death Squad without a reason, and they sure put one helluva beating on Wolverine. One of them punches him in the soul! Thanks to this act we now have conclusive evidence that humans have souls. The issue ends with what is setting up to be an awesome training montage, a la Rocky style.

As usual the artwork is fantastic, and Jason Aaron definitely has a handle on old martial arts dialogue and even manages to throw in THE Chinatown quote. Can't wait for the next one.

I wish I could have made that my high school yearbook quote.
