OK, so I already hit up the comic shop for this week. (Purchases: Hellblazer trade, Young Liars and Unknown Soldier #1, which I should’ve read months ago. Unforgivable. Also, if you didn’t buy The Unwritten and the new League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, we aren’t friends anymore.)
But. In the wake of a thoroughly mediocre Wolverine movie that I enjoyed far more than I should’ve, I find myself with a strange desire to read Wolverine comics. I’m a Jason Aaron fangirl, so I’ve been tempted before this to check out his take on the character, but I have this problem where I want to go back to the beginning with everything–it keeps me out of the superhero section quite often. I want to know EVERYTHING, which is impossible with these characters with this epic history.
So, I figured I’d ask you. Recommend me a trade that I can pick up and devour in one sitting. The more foulmouthed and gory, the better.
(No, the picture wasn’t entirely necessary. But I like it.)
