Wolverine and Jubilee #4

Wolverine and Jubilee #4 - 365 Days of Comics
Thor looks so tiny compared to Jubilee.
As Wolverine and Jubilee comes to an end, I find that I the series didn't really have an effect on the characters or myself. Don't take that to mean that the book isn't entertaining...it does have moments I enjoyed (which I will get into in a moment), but like most non-event mini-series, it had no effect on the X-Men or Wolverine and Jubilee's future.

Passing on this comic of the day (or the trade when it comes out) is recommended, but if you are a hard-core Wolverine or Jubilee fan here are a few things to look forward to in Wolverine and Jubilee #4.
  • Wolverine and Jubilee continue to have very unique and playful banter. Jubilee makes fun of Wolverine constantly and talks back to him as if he is the push over father that allows daddy's girl to get away with anything. On the other side of the same token, Wolverine talks to Jubilee in a blunt style which comes across as a funny way to talk to a kid-like person. At one point Wolverine tells Jubilee he cut a zombie accountant's "fucking head off" and it just comes across as funny. Jubilee: what happened to that dude? Wolvie: fucking murdered him.
  • A giant dragon get's punched in the face.
  • Wolverine owns Emma Frost...verbally. I enjoy any interaction where someone talks back to Emma and gets under her skin. In Wolverine and Jubilee #4, Emma makes a brief appearance where she basically wants to lock Jubilee back up for tests. Wolverine knows what that experience is like, so he tells Emma nothing in regards to Jubilee's whereabouts and mocks her in the process. When will Jean come back and kick Emma out of the X-Men? Mind-cat fight!

Thought the first two issues were pretty good but it kind of lost its way with issues 3 and 4. Look for my review on Wednesday.
