    Death of Wolverine: The Weapon X Program #1 surely stands out as its own thing despite spinning out of the events following immediately after Death of Wolverine. There are characters worth following, plenty to explore about them and what they can do. Not only this but anticipate what Weapon X might do to get them back or where they fit into this world now.

    The death of Wolverine is having a big impact in the Marvel Universe. We're seeing a lot of books tie into it but this one actually takes back to the 'scene of the crime.' Taking place moments after the death, there's almost an eerie feeling as we see other victims to Dr. Cornelius' Weapon X plans. Charles Soule introduces us to some new characters and also brings back one character that will make you scratch your head as you try to figure out what he's doing. If that wasn't a mystery enough, not knowing what's next for these characters is intriguing. Don't let this book get lost in the mix of other "Death of Wolverine" tie ins. There's definitely something peculiar and fascinating going on here. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Nov 7, 2014

    There is not much to take away from "Death of Wolverine: The Weapon X Program" #1, as this comic is essentially a quick introduction that kicks a longer story off. There is, however, enough promise in Soule being able to forge something interesting with this ragtag bunch in a firefight that bonds them together. At least for now. After all, there are at least two characters readers still have to meet by name. That and a killer cliffhanger final page seem like more than enough to bring readers back for future installments as Soule investigates the legacy left behind by the Weapon X Program.

    After Wolverine's death, the failed experiments of Weapon X have risen. Now they each are on the run. They seek to find answers as to what they are and who made them. I like the direction of story. I feel it's the next step into an inevitable return of Logan. Read Full Review

    This comic runs side by side with the Death of Wolverine story. I like the idea of a parallel track, such as this, and the plot threads could have some interesting results down the line. The characters are also nice additions to this event fallout. The comic could have used some work making this book a tighter read, but overall this is a good start. I recommend checking this out.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Nov 6, 2014

    The main point of interest in this first issue is the protagonist, Sharp. Soule makes a point of shrouding the character and his past in mystery, to the point where we don't even see his face. Depending what direction this series heads in, Sharp could develop into a compelling protagonist. There's potential with The Weapon X Program, but little of its is being realized so far.

    Are any of the survivors one or all of the three that Wolverine shot with the artificial healing factor vials as he was dying? What will happen to Wolverine's body now? Will we get answers to these questions soon, or will the mind of Charles Soule lead us on for years to come? So. Many. Questions! Read Full Review

    Writer Charles Soule and artist Salvador Larocca team up to focus on the new experiments of the Weapon X project, but the characters all feel so disposable it's hard to get invested. Read Full Review

    Really confusing, yet the last page kind of promised that the next issues will offer something better.
