CBR Review: Wolverine: The Best There Is #3

I recently reviewed Wolverine: The Best There Is #3 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "In theory, an over-the-top Wolverine comic that revels in a little bit of the old ultraviolent sounds like a great idea. Of Marvel’s heroes, Wolverine lends himself to a big, nasty violent comic that’s full of blood and gore and messed up stuff happening on every page. In practice, it’s a dreadful bore. Charlie Huston writes the title almost as if the mandate was 'What would a Garth Ennis Wolverine comic be like?' except without grasping Ennis’ style of writing beyond the most superficial elements. A deformed child? A strange villain? Offbeat bad guys? All there, none of it working to cohere into an entertaining comic."
