NVGR - Review: Astonishing Spider-Man & Wolverine

This one goes out to Max Scoville because he is right, we should also talk about comics.

For the life of me I don't understand why no one has recommended this to me before. Astonishing Spider-Man and Wolverine is in all likelihood is my favorite comic of all time. It takes two of my favorite Marvel heroes Spider-Man and Wolverine, mixes time travel and an epic adventure all in one perfect sized graphic novel. Really I'm surprised they were able to fit it all in.

I like having this and Deadpool Vol. 2 Dark Reign because I've come to call them the "Meat Suit collection". Also, both are fun and are my top choices whenever I recommend a comic.

There is a robbery taking place and somehow it attracts Wolverine and Spider-Man in a way that just flows together. Before they know it the both of them are stranded in a place and time embarking on a journey that will stay with them forever. All they have is each other in acknowledging where they both came from. There will be some serious soul searching as well as humorous happenstances that will leave you chuckling like you're reading some good Deadpool. Neither of them knows really what is happening, but it will be a crazy ride finding out. So how long can the broody "snikt" and the whip smart "web head" last together?

It is taking a lot of restraint to hold back my fanboyism on this one. Mainly because I feel it has everything you need in a comic. And the fact that it is not super bulky like a text book makes me love it even more. If you love having range in your comic plots, a steady flow of content mixed perfectly with great art then you'll want in on this as soon as possible.

SCORE 9.5/10
The only reason I don't give it a perfect score is because I wish there were a bit more info on the villains. Otherwise it is perfect.

Also recommended:
Deadpool Vol. 2 Dark Reign
& Dark Reign Deadpool/Thunderbolts (it basically goes in the middle of Vol.2)

Conan Vol. 1-7 (nice stories and depiction of world, for original stuff Complete Chronicles of Conan is a nice long read)
Madame Mirage
Deadpool Vs. the Marvel Universe (Also, Merc with a Mouth, Daniel Way's run of Deadpool (he gets a little lazy with the humor, but I still prefer his over Joe Kelly's run, Deadpool Corps was okay for me and recently started reading Priest and others)
The Path: Crisis of Faith
