The Wolverine / Prisoners

Hugh times two.


Action

Rod Lott
The Wolverine is the X-Men spin-off we should have received four years ago with X-Men Origins: Wolverine. Like the franchise's characters, the first mutation is not necessarily the best; whereas the 2009 version sought to be a comic book, the 2013 error-correcting reboot aims higher: comic book art.

In light of recent events at the state Capitol, Satan has been getting lots of pub around here lately.

It all goes down (way down) 6:30 p.m. Thursday at Full Circle Bookstore, 1900 Northwest Expressway. Admission is free. Call 842-2900 or visit fullcirclebooks.com.
