    Too many cliches, continuity messing ret-con and an awful "wtf???" ending, but Garney's artworks saved the day.

    English (but not so good) / ItalianoDespite the premise the story disappointed me, too fast and superficial for two characters like these. Nice shot instead with "The Man in the Pit".ItalianoNonostante le premesse la storia mi ha deluso, troppo frenetica e superficiale per due personaggi come questi. Bel colpo invece con “L’uomo nel pozzo”.

    Even though this is an epilogue to the X-Men series "Messiah CompleX", the book works well as a stand-alone book where Wolverine is hunting down Mystique. We get the backstory between the two characters, going back to the 1920s when the two meet for the first time and decide to work together, to the present day where Logan is playing cat to Mystique's mouse in the middle east. Mystique's always been one of the most lethal mutants out there and writer Jason Aaron does a fine job showing just how deadly she can be with her abilities. Logan's character is something Aaron has perfected and is a joy to read, while artist Ron Garney does a fine job drawing the carnage the two wreak on themselves and their surroundings. Altogether, "Get Mystique" is a good chase thriller story between two fascinating characters that's an excellent, if short, read and a great ending to "Messiah CompleX". Definitely worth a look if you're a Wolverine fan.

    Since I really enjoyed Jason Aaron's work on Weapon X, I decided to go back and hunt down his one piece of earlier Wolverine work. While thin (and less expensive), Get Mystique is a fun action story that explores the two characters' relationship. After seeing X-Men: First Class, Mystique is character I really like and am much more interested in than in the earlier movies. While I wouldn't say she has tons of depth in this story, she is a great foil for Wolverine and I thought it was really fitting how they meet. The multiple plots and timelines make great use of these characters' long lives too. While this isn't required reading for fans of Wolverine, it is fun reading and I'm glad I picked this trade up.

    Cute. Good story, lots of great backstory to fill in the Wolvie/Mystie mythology. The inevitable "your favourite character is about to die!" foolishness is getting tired, but I guess the storytellers have to escalate to that level sooner or later in the comics.Good art - not mind-blowing, but Garney executes the story very well, clear sense of action and character.I'm giving it four stars because Aaron does a damn fine job of channelling Wolverine's moral badass, but the story seems like stuff I could've read from anyone.

    Se non fosse stato per "L'Uomo nel pozzo" questo volume si sarebbe meritato a malapena due stellette, nonostante vi figurino due personaggi che amo da impazzire: Logan e Mystica.Se dalla breve shot che chiude il volume capisco bene perché Jason Aaron si è guadagnato la sua fama, la lunga storia di "Trova Mystica!" è un condensato di violenza gratuita, scene veloci, passaggi confusi dal passato al presente che non aggiungono niente ai personaggi e rendono questa storia particolarmente vacua, soprattutto per un finale che dovrebbe essere moraleggiante ma non dice nulla, non è nemmeno un finale e non si giustifica nella prospettiva di ciò che Mystica e Logan hanno dimostrato di volere fortemente per tutto il tempo della storia."L'uomo nel pozzo" invece, è una shot sorprendentemente bella e introspettiva, nella sua brevità, che svela quel lato di Logan, troppo spesso dimenticato, conoscitore dei lati più oscuri e sporchi dell'animo umano anche in virtù della sua lunga vita, di tutte le persone che ha incontrato e di tutte le sofferenze che ha patito. Queste sono le storie che voglio leggere e, francamente, mi avrebbe fatto più piacere leggere di duelli all'ultimo sangue fra Logan e Mystica se ci fosse stata una caratterizzazione vera e se tutto non fosse stato ridotto a un'inutile iper-sessualizzazione di quest'ultima e del suo scontro con l'artigliato, in una vaga metafora dello scontro fisico come incontro sessuale "rude" che non aggiunge niente a una narrazione che di spunti ne ha già troppi e non riesce a realizzarne compiutamente neanche uno.

    Continuing the great x-read of 2018...Cliché, but somehow still pretty enjoyable tale between Wolverine and Mystique. My main issue is that this seems like a completely different Mystique than the character that recently starred in her own limited series. A couple of odd retcons, too. Deep down, it was a pretty fun read though and had some really good art, so I am willing to be a bit more forgiving with it.

    Not bad!The at in this is pretty good. The overall story want amazing, but it provided an interesting read for somebody not up to date on the comic world.

    Gratuitous, though it never seems to betray the characters. I mean, outside the weird retcon that Wolverine and Mystique have known each other for a lot longer than previously mentioned.

    I haven't read Messiah Complex yet, but this story can be enjoyed without needing much background information. Jason Aaron writes a great Wolverine.

    Even though it is supposed to be an epilogue of sorts to Messiah ComlpleX, you don't need to read that story to get enjoyment out of this.

    I must have read a different collection than the one most of the people below are describing. What I read is not a standalone story in the sense that the components from Messiah Complex weigh too much on the forward momentum of the story, as well as relying too heavily on "previously unseen exploits" as relayed in this collection. The pacing of the collection is thrown off by these surface-skimming reflections to the 1920s sequences with Wolvering & Mystique in Mexico and Kansas, as well as bizarrely unnecessary flashbacks to Cyclops ordering Wolverine to find and kill Mystique. There is nothing wrong with linearity, nor should linearity be tossed aside for a "cool," sequenceless story. When people tell a non-linear story, it is usually with purpose. This is not one of those instances. I am also baffled by the rationale for leaving Mystique alive at the end. Wolvering guts a human on no less than 2 occassions here to find Mystique and yet, when he finds her, he doesn't cut her head off or something/ anything to ensure that she is absolutely, unequivocably dead? I'm not a bloodbath kind of reader, but geez. I'm reading two different Wolverines here and I only understand the murder-squad-X-Force-leading one. The end is totally ruined by this lack of consistency.I love Aaron's WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN. This is decidedly not WOLVERINE & THE X-MEN, as GET MYSTIQUE lacks that book's charm and originality.

    I am baffled as to why this is getting so many good reviews from people, as I found this to be one of the worst TPBs, and one of the worst comics full stop, I have ever read.In this dull and extremely predictable story, set after the events of Messiah Complex, Wolverine hunts down Mystique to enact vengeance on her. Interspersed with this pretty clichéd chase story are flashbacks to a boring and clichéd history between the two as accomplices and lovers, taking place in a clichéd version of historical America. You'll notice I used the word clichéd a lot in the last sentence. That's because nothing in this story feels fresh or new: there's no original ideas. Even the apparent big reveal that Wolverine and Mystique have some long, unseen history fails to shed any light on either character. I'm not quite sure why anyone felt the need to connect them in this way. Perhaps because they're both long-lived characters with dangerous pasts, Jason Aaron felt they just HAD to have some history with each other. But it doesn't work.And then, after all that build-up and all those overly drawn-out scenes of Logan slaughtering whole villages full of racially stereotyped mercenaries so that he could finally kill Mystique... he doesn't kill her after all. And I slowly realise I just wasted five quid and half an hour of my life.Don't make the same mistake I did.

    Brilliant art by Garney highlights this volume, as he is an underrated artist, in my opinion. The story is a short read, but Aaron captures Wolverine's tone and dialogue well. This is a solid story typical of the X-Man's adventures, with a lot of the elements his fans like (healing factor, shady past, personal examination). Wolverine seems to have hundreds of years of back stories (a flashback sequence in this one takes place in the '20's), but if the story is good, I have little problem with yet another tale from Wolverine's past. The present day story takes place after the X-Men crossover event Messiah CompleX. I enjoy Marvel's continuity threading when done right (it seems to be here), and a good story can be told by drawing on past stories. An interesting bit of sliding continuity is seen here, as Wolverine's mercenary work is dated to the '80's, helping a present day terrorist when he was a "freedom fighter" against the Russians in the Cold War. This is pretty common for Marvel, and even makes sense, as Reed Richards and Ben Grimm were once World War 2 vets, a distinction that would put them in their old age now.

    This is one of those stories that I immensely enjoyed despite it's flaws. And what was the biggest flaw? I'll come right out and say it: the very end. Wolverine goes through quite a bit and then doesn't finish the job. I felt... I don't know, a lot of things. they way he left her to die slowly was cruel and the opposite of what he had been promising the whole book (a quick death). It seemed out of character that he wouldn't just gut her. It seemed obvious from a readers perspective that they were just leaving her to live. I've accepted that people that "die" in comics will be back, and have even started to enjoy how creative future writers have to get in HOW they come back. This kind of felt like a cop out.Any ways, that little rant over, it really was a good read. There was a lot of good new back story between these characters. It was pretty interesting seeing how two people who are so very close in their ruthlessness can get along so badly just because of those small difference, especially seeing how they are exacerbated because of these characters immensely long lives.

    This was not that great for me. The art was good (although having Mystique fight naked at the end seemed like unnecessary fan service). I hadn't read the story that preceded this, but I didn't think it was really necessary. The X-Men, for some inexplicable reason, trusted Mystique and she betrayed them. Not really a shock. Now they want Wolverine to kill her. Okay, Wolverine kills people, that's kind of his thing, so that made sense. So he spends all this time tracking her down, and we see some scenes of them knowing each other in the past. (Was I the only one whose reaction to seeing them 'together' together was grossed out? Maybe I just have an inherent distaste for good guy/bad guy sexual happenings. Especially when the bad guy is so obviously a bad guy and it's clearly not a serious relationship involving love.) Anyway, it was moderately entertaining, but when the entire story is about Wolverine tracking her down to kill her, I kind of want to see him do it by the end. Which we don't. So, what's the point of the story? Why did I just spend all that time reading it? It left me unsatisfied and a little annoyed.

    There's not much story, even with added on flashbacks. Yet again we see 2 characters having interaction in the past and having this whole history, it also seemed a little predictable. In the present Wolverine is so close to getting Mystique, but she continues to elude him. And that's about it.But yet it's no boring story. In the end you feel the same bloodlust wolverine feels, and the past sequences, even if predictable cement that fact Wolverine will not quit till he gets her and this is the end for Mystique. Which is no easy task, since she's one of the most lethal mutants and has a great strategic Mind, and shows it. The ending was not what I expected. But it was disappointing yet.. Still great.When Ron Garney did some X-men work after many great artists, some years back, it just looked too plain. Now the art fantastic. A lot looks like Kubert (any of em) inspired.

    I would probably rate this more along the lines of 3.5.The art is standard Marvel art. I like their style but wish they did something to stand out every once in a while.The story arch was ok. I liked pitting Wolverine against Mystique. He is the only one who can hunt her and it allowed her to demonstrate how crafty she is. The ups and downs were fun, but the ending was lame. I just get bored with Marvel’s inability to resolve things…completely.The one thing that stood out in this story is Wolverine’s inner monologue. He talked a lot about his healing factor. People think he doesn’t feel pain because he heals so fast, but it hurts a lot to heal. He also aches from his skeleton. Very rich monologue.Overall, it was pretty standard with a few pieces that stuck out.

    A pretty standard chase-centric action fare, kept afloat by some possibly-controversial dialog and portrayal of middle-eastern peoples. This book seems like a repeat of Wolverine: Civil War, when the X-Man with the hardest reputation takes it upon himself to hunt down the person guiltiest for the preceding crossover's villainy. In Civil War's case, Nitro had clearly earned his hunt. Mystique? Maybe not so much. I'm also not sure why Mystique is nude for the final 25% of this book, in her final confrontation with Wolverine. It's possible they're just trying to emulate her movie appearance, but there's no in-story reason for this and it seems forced.

    After slogging through the whole series so far, and a bad run of Loeb, hohum Guggenheim, this Jason Aaron work...works!There's humour without stupid jokes, a writer who,respects the characters, gives an added depth of history and has a plot that makes sense, as well as an ending that shows he thinks his readers aren't total morons. I liked it, and it's supposedly the ending of Messiah Complex...haven't read that for a while...Solid stuff, art is OK, but not my fave, then again, it could be Humbert Ramos again...lol.Solid and a relief after all the crap in this title.

    Wolverine: Get Mystique me gustó bastante porque explora la relación entre Logan y Raven; wolverine llega a límites físicos que no sabía que podía llegar y Mystique tiene todo un background muy interesante. La historia está llena de acción y me encantó la forma en que está contada, intercalando presente y pasado justo en la medida correcta para hacerla entendible. Pero… ¿sacar un arma de un bolsillo que se crea en la piel de la shapeshifter? Seriously?

    I'm reading this as part of the new Marvel collection so I don't have any context to rely on with what came before or after. It was a really interesting story though, I really enjoyed learning more about Wolverine's psyche and past. Really nice artwork as well. Of the few Marvel stories I've read so far this is the one that I'd most likely consider picking up in trade

    Being a huge Wolverine fan, In the recent years some of the Wolverine comic arcs (Daken) have been less then stellar and it leaves me wanting more and I kept buying more hoping to find one that I enjoyed as much as Mark Millar's Wolverine stories. Get Mystique is a great action comic..one any Wolverine fan can enjoy.

    Aaron's writing is, as usual, sharp, but this comic is ultimately plague by two problems. First, it's too decompressed, as we watch a 4-issue chase. Second, Aaron can't actually offer any resolution to the plot arc.

  • J.

    I really like what Aaron's going for here. He takes Wolverine's history seriously; he makes Mystique an interesting, devious character; and he paces the whole thing out nicely. But none of that could quite make me all that interested in the storyline, and I don't even know why. What can I say?

  • Steve

    Kind of a decent action story, but the storytelling wasn't very clear in places. It took me a reread to figure out that Wolverine didn't kill an innocent woman in the beginning, but that Mystique was posing as Wolverine.The art didn't make it as clear as it could've.

  • Matt

    A fun enough story. Garney's really good here (he isn't, usually), and I love Aaron's constant spurning of the current decompression trend in comics. He writes big, meaty, dense stories, and it's great.
