REVIEW BY MERISSA - Wolverine's Daughter (Wolverine's Daughter #1) by Doranna Durgin
Wolverine's Daughter - Doranna Durgin
This is a fantasy of old style story telling and classic witchcraft and wizardry. Although it was a slow starter, I stuck with it and thoroughly enjoyed it.

Kelyn is a wonderful mixture of boldness, sass, with a strong sense of right and wrong. There is a comment made in the book that although she never goes looking for trouble, trouble always seems to find her! She sets off from home on a journey of discovery, both to find her father and to find herself. With mishaps, battles, friendships and sorrow along the way.

This is a wonderful book that follows along the lines of sword and sorcery and an epic storyline.

Reading progress update: I've read 3 out of 200 pages.
Wolverine: Meltdown (X-Men) - Walter Simonson

gonna re-read one of my favorite Wolverine stories! a long time ago, this was originally released as Havok & Wolverine. but there was no way that was going to happen with reprints like this. like there was any chance Wolverine was not gonna become the first name. in fact--let's take a look now--I don't even see Havok's name on the cover. dropped. not there, no reason to put it there. and I feel guilty; I'm not part of the solution, I'm part of the problem. I come here saying this is a Wolverine story, one of my favorite Wolverine stories...

 

go, WOLVERINE! Cry Rampage, and let slip the Dogs of War!

All-New Wolverine Vol. 1: The Four Sisters
All-New Wolverine Vol. 1: The Four Sisters - Tom Taylor,David López

Laura Kinney (X-23) taking on the mantle of Wolverine after Logan’s death is a premise I feel conflicted about. On one hand, who better to be Wolverine than his clone? On the other hand, it feels like a step back for her because she is his clone. Part of Laura’s journey has been establishing herself as her own person separate from her creators’ intended purpose of her being Wolverine’s replacement. Which is why Laura taking on the mantle of Wolverine feels like a step back on being her own person.

 

That being said, this was a fun book for Laura and I loved seeing her being a hero. Laura gets to deal with some clones of her own. Her dynamic with them was excellent. One of the clones, Gabby, was particularly adorable. I can’t wait to see more of Laura and Gabby together.

 

Laura’s new story is a great showing for her overall, even if I am a bit worried about her losing her own identity by taking on the mantle of the man she was cloned from. I definitely plan on enjoying her time as the Wolverine, but I’ll also be waiting for her to step back out of Logan’s shadow and claim her own identity. She deserves that.

Nice addition this week.
All-New Wolverine (2015-) #13 - Tom Taylor,Nicole Virella,David Lopez

Along with the codes for the digital issues, we get one free comic a week.  I suspect I'll have some, but not others.   (I'm also hoping I might end up getting some of the codes that I didn't get earlier during the 'no codes' months now.  Maybe in a while?)

 

That being said, this was fun.   Laura might seem paranoid when she gets her trigger scent - which is explained in this comic - sent to her house, but for those aware of her history?   She doesn't really seem that paranoid at all.   Afraid, she piles her sister. their dog, and their statue of a pelican into the car.   (Because Gabby won't leave without the statue, even if it's intimate.   And I love that Laura understands Gabby enough to know she'll need this. and instead of putting up a fight, just gives in and agrees that no man, even an intimate pelican man, gets left behind.)

 

When the cabin in the woods - the start of a horror movie with a zombie apocalypse. Gabby points out - that Logan owned and has apparently left to Laura loses power, Laura goes into town to see if she can get candles if the power is out there. too.   It is.   Phones, even cell phones, aren't working either.   What's a girl to do when the power is out and the pumps won't give you gas - and your trigger scent is rained down on you?

 

Guess she'll just have to have a blackout berserker rage that puts Logan's to shame after her physical and mental conditioning.   

 

I'm not one hundred percent she did the things everyone thinks at the end of this, just because it seems obvious. and whoever's setting this up has power and money.   And all the knowledge about her.   I'm wondering if someone else will be found at fault. and I'm almost tempted to buy the next issue.   I think I'll wait for a sale, though, since Marvel is still dicking me around.
