Insane in the Brain WX This is a fairly bizarre Wolverine story, as the grotesquerie of Dr. Rot's asylum would fit right into the darkest Batman stories. Still, it's a nice extension of the Weapon X story that doesn't just continue straight on. Instead, we're seeing different ripples in the pond, in the form of a modern-day program to create weapons and a hidden secret of Weapon X. A bit too much of this story descends again into mindless violence, but the horrific asylum is so evocati Insane in the Brain WX Melita WX This is Aaron at his best, offering a beautifully non-linear, character-focused story of Wolverine's newest girlfriend, Melita.
So the insane asylum with Wolverine was both strange, horrific and somewhat confusing. The story of his love life was an odd touch at the end. Maybe I just need to read the other issues and then go from there. Interesting look at his life if you're a fan. Oct 26, Sarah added it. Great art, interesting story This coming had an interesting story line.
Not for the weather of heart!
At times it was a bit hard to follow, but still enjoyable. Jan 19, Frans Karlsson rated it liked it. Wolverine faces dr Rot in his asylum and his relationship with Miranda deepens. Aug 28, Sam Quixote rated it really liked it. Jason Aaron returns for a second volume of the highly brilliant series that is "Wolverine: Weapon X", this time with a different artist to regular collaborator Ron Garney, Yanick Paquette.
The book does continue the story set out in "Adamantium Men" though not literally as it starts in the middle then introduces the beginning about halfway through. This might be disconcerting for some but stick with it as the story is awesome. Wolverine meanwhile is incapacitated as one of Rot's patients, unable to remember who he is or how he came to be there as Rot lobotomises the other patients and creates some deranged machine to turn people crazy. I thought the mad house and the character of Dr Rot were excellently creepy, very "Se7en" and dark with lots of twisted goings on.
Aaron does a great job introducing new characters and making them as interesting as existing ones and brings the story to an admirably unexpected end. Paquetta's art is fantastic throughout. Very detailed, very clear, with a strong focus on characters' expressions that few comics artists today can match. It reminded me of Andy Kubert's work with some of Tony Harris', great artists all. An excellent read and original story though a lot less Wolverine than in the first book, this is a great continuation in this series from the increasingly more interesting Jason Aaron.
Sep 25, Colby Pryor rated it liked it. While I found the story in the second volume of Wolverine to be told well. The characters are well fleshed out, the story is a quaint little horror story, and the art, well the art isn't anything home about. However, from a writers point of view, nothing here really gripped me as something I would want to do or what I wouldn't want to do in my own writings.

The plot elements of a main character in an insane asylum is a interesting one that I would do, however, the way it's handled here isn't what I would want to do with it.
The plot element of a main character not remembering who they are is not something I find all that interesting and want to explore. It's just one of those tropes that I don't like, personally, it's the same with body switching and time travel plots, don't necessary find them interesting or enticing story plots.
It doesn't hinder the story told here because it's done differently but it's still not what I want to do. It's the same with what works with this story, is also not what I want do, nothing that was done here made me want to do it in my own work. Okay, the main story in this comic was really creepy. It was the story of Logan being kept in an asylum without any memories of who he is, while a crazy sadistic doctor performs experiments on him and the other patients.
Once again, it seems, someone is looking to build the perfect killing machine. Store home. Buy New View Book. Other offers may also be available. Learn More - opens in a new window or tab Any international shipping is paid in part to Pitney Bowes Inc. This was a read story. Shipping and handling.
Most of the time the story reminded me of splatter horror movies with all the blood, missing limbs and cut-out brains. The last story was much shorter but more interesting, for it tells how Logan suddenly finds himself in a relationship with the reporter Melita Garner and everyone Okay, the main story in this comic was really creepy. The last story was much shorter but more interesting, for it tells how Logan suddenly finds himself in a relationship with the reporter Melita Garner and everyone gives him advice on how to handle this situation, from Black Widow to Jubilee.
I especially liked the scene where he holds Luke's and Jessica's baby.
Quote Jessica: "He asked to hold the baby. He's never asked to hold the baby. Maybe I should take her back. I mean, he's got those claws and --" If all of his Wolverine books were as well-written as these Weapon X books, I could cut out the hate part of our relationship. Aaron takes wolverine in exact opposite directions from the first 5 issues to these 5 issues. In this, he's caught up in a storyline he'd most likely never be featured in without the other X-Men.
And that's what made this book great. Wolverine meets the first 20 minutes of House on Haunted Hill. Pitch perfect artwork. Boy, that Jason Aaron is one sick puppy. After reading his work in Scalped I should have seen this coming. Him, working on a Wolverine book is bloody genius, emphasis on bloody. The introduction of Dr. Rot is really good. He's sadistic and is a great foil for Logan. My only quibble would be the somewhat forced relationship with Melita. I think I like her character but as with most the women in Wolverine's life, her meaningfulness is amped too high, too quickly.
The art by Yanick Paquette is really good. He draws the creepy viscera involved very well. Overall, a very good book. May 23, Anthony Pinder rated it did not like it. Since reading Daniel Way's run on Wolverine, I've been expecting a lot more from his books. It was nice to see that he finally knows who he is and what he wants in life. Jason Aaron, as the current writer on the series, has just gone and gotten rid of all that.
It's an un-original plot with nothing new to offer for the Wolverine saga. Aug 19, Craig rated it liked it. Pretty creepy story arc, but, um, how did Wolverine land in a psychiatric hospital? Did I miss something? There doesn't seem to be any link from vol. Also, the whole patient running the loony bin is a plot we've all seen a thousand times. Jason Aaron's writing on Scalped is a whole lot better than what I've seen of his Wolverine so far.
Starts out very promising, but fails to live in its own circumstances. Instead of having Wolverine deal with his problem himself, a rather abrupt deus ex machina is used to "fix" the main conflict. Also, the cliffhanger ending is a little too indefinite, with no sense that it will matter much in the future. Nov 03, Cameron rated it it was amazing. One of the creepiest comic stories ever in my opinion.
I was genuinely kept on the edge of my seat after every issue waiting until the next one came out. This is Aaron's best arc of the "Weapon X" series. Mar 10, Matt rated it really liked it Shelves: wolverine. It's not nearly so strong as the first arc, but Aaron definitely has fun with this arc. Rot, especially, is an entertaining and twisted character that acts very much as a Joker-type character for Wolverine.
Some crazy guy named Rotwell convinces Logan he is insane. Can't remember anything and. Issues 6 through 9: 1. Aug 27, Pavel rated it it was amazing Shelves: comics. Probably the creepiest, the most violent and the most nerve-wracking story with Wolverine. I'm still feeling queasy from the panels.
Dec 03, Scott rated it it was ok Shelves: own , marvel , graphic-novels. This was a read story. It gives you no context going in, just "Wolverine's in a looney bin and we'll reveal why later Oct 30, Darcy Littlefield rated it liked it.

Jason Aaron grew up in a small town in Alabama.
His cousin, Gustav Hasford, who wrote the semi-autobiographical novel The Short-Timers, on which the feature film Full Metal Jacket was based, was a large influence on Aaron.

Aaron decided he wanted to write comics as a child, and though his father was skeptical when Aaron informed him of this aspiration, his mother took Aaron to drug stores, where he would purchase books from spinner racks, some of which he still owns today. Aaron's career in comics began in when he won a Marvel Comics talent search contest with an eight-page Wolverine back-up story script.
The story, which was published in Wolverine June , gave him the opportunity to pitch subsequent ideas to editors. His continued work on Black Panther also included a tie-in to the company-wide crossover storyline along with a "Secret Invasion" with David Lapham in In January , he signed an exclusive contract with Marvel, though it would not affect his work on Scalped. After a 4-issue stint on Wolverine in , Aaron returned to the character with the ongoing series Wolverine: Weapon X, launched to coincide with the feature film X-Men Origins: Wolverine.
Aaron commented, "With Wolverine: Weapon X we'll be trying to mix things up like that from arc to arc, so the first arc is a typical sort of black ops story but the second arc will jump right into the middle of a completely different genre," In , the series was relaunched once again as simply Wolverine.
