The problem is Wolverine is way too overexposed. Like Batman at an uber-level. Also, honestly, a guy can't write a good WOLVERINE story without tieing it to a major event. I picked up Wolverine after the whole Fatal Attractions event when he lost his adamantium and all but lost interest when he got it back. Then during Civil War he played Nitro-hunter and then went back into dreg stories. Seriously, with a barebones rogues gallery there not much you can do with him...except pit him against Sabretooth for th 1000000th time. Warren Ellis had a good run on the book....but that too was short term.
I love Garney so much. He messed up a couple of details on both Wolverine and Cyclops' costumes, but I don't even care. I think he's one of the only artists who still draws belts around people's waists, too; everyone else seems to have moved down to the hips (including myself whenever I draw costumes, I admit).
Wolverine and Mystique hanging out together is a good idea. I could see a lot of fun interplay in that arrangement.
