Wolverine and Jubilee 2 (Marvel Comics)

Wow, yeah, this is more like it. I didn't like the first issue of this series much at all, but took a chance on the second. I'm glad I did, as while it's still very low key and a little slow, the character interplay between Wolverine and Jubilee is back to its best. The story is still leaving me kinda cold, but it's awesome to see Jubes back in the costume we know her best for (the yellow coat and pink sunglasses are back!) and her banter with Logan continues to hold the attention.

Towards the end of the issue, stuff finally starts happening, and we get a deeper look at the nature of Jubilee's new vampire status. I'm still all vamp'd out, but the quality of the writing in the two-handed Wolvie and Jubilee scenes is delightful. Phil Noto's artwork is expressive and perfectly suits the tale, and it looks like I'll certainly be picking up the rest of the series thanks to this chapter.
