    I just started reading Hugh Matthews Wolverine: Lifeblood. It’s funny, but the book has Wolverine in Ottawa and I was in Ottawa yesterday (I also had the book with me yesterday) so it was interesting to be reading it in Ottawa. Not to many books get set in Ottawa. I find the books are usually set in Toronto or Vancouver or elsewhere in Canada, but hardly in Ottawa. Considering that Ottawa is Canada’s capital you would think it would be attacked in fiction set in Canada about as much as Washington, D.C. or London, England.

    Also I see Hughes Matthews or Matthew Hughes is a Canadian, so it’s interesting to have a Canadian writing about the Canadian Wolverine.

    I’m a fan of Matthew Hughes, and one of his non-tie-ins, The Other, published around the same time, had a lot of resonances with the Wolverine book.

    I think Hughes doesn’t like chapters. So far they are MIA!

    Okay, he really doesn’t like chapters. It’s just “Ottawa, Canada, Present Day” or “Berlin, Germany, 1943”.

    Also I’m 100 pages in and I’m still trying to figure out what “Lifeblood”’s plot is. It seems to be more a Wolverine trying to recover his memories story and meets the people of the memory in the present!

    Also the book seems to be set in the 2000’s (for the present, as there are references to the Afghan War of the 2000’s) and back in World War II. But Wolverine seems to be in a pre-X-Men story as he has no memories of the X-Men (at least so far).
