Wolverine Wednesday: Weapon X

by Matthew Price Modified: April 22, 2013 at 2:25 pm •  Published: April 29, 2009

The “Weapon X” storyline was serialized in “Marvel Comics Presents” in eight-page installments that were written and drawn by Barry Windsor-Smith, who became a comics superstar with another barbarian, Conan.
Windsor-Smith is a favorite of mine, and his “Weapon X,” now available as a premiere hardcover from Marvel, is another of the great Wolverine stories.

This series explains how Logan, who would later become Wolverine, ended up with the unbreakable metal adamantium bound to his bones.  It’s more than that, as well, it examines the difference between man and animals and a soldier and a weapon.  Beautiful art, incredibly violent.
