All-New Wolverine Annual #1 - A Review

Being a superhero makes one accustom to all kinds of weirdness. Yet nothing can prepare you for waking up in a body that isn't your own in a parallel dimension! Such is the fate that has befallen the Gwen Stacy of Earth-65 (aka Spider-Woman) and Laura Kinney of Earth 616 (aka Wolverine). And unless they can figure out the cause of the switch quickly, they'll be sent back to their respective realities without any kind of body at all!

Body-swapping comedies tend towards the cliche, yet Tom Taylor manages to twist the classic trope enough to make it amusingly fresh. The artwork by Marcio Takara is lively, flowing smoothly with the action of Taylor's story. And Mat Lopes' colors are vibrant and well-chosen. This is a fine-one shot story, sure to please fans of both the former X-23 and Spider-Gwen.
