CM Podcast 269 – The Wolverine (1982 miniseries and 2013 movie review) Part 2 of 2

I know it was hard to wait a week for our review but thanks for coming back! We continue with our examination of the Wolverine miniseries written by Chris Claremont and drawn by Frank Miller. It was published by Marvel in 1982. We also compare the miniseries to the 2013 The Wolverine movie and show you how much they used from the miniseries in the movie.

Some things you can expect to hear in this podcast:

  • We continue to spoil a comic that came out almost 40 years ago and has been recapped in issues of Uncanny X-Men, X-Men and The Wolverine regular series so it’s not much of a spoiler.
  • I call Yukio the wrong name for half the podcast and Jon does not pick up on it until I correct myself.
  • We know our 80s American Asian cinema – we go off on a 10 minute tangent to talk about how Asian culture influenced media during the 1980s.
  • Jon and I try to piece together why Storm has her “punk rocker” look on the final 2 pages of issue #173 of Uncanny X-Men.

All this and more hilarity with this podcast. Thanks for listening.

Jim
