    After seeing that Logan was a three issue miniseries, one of my first thoughts was that it would read much better once it got collected. I am happy to report that Brian K. Vaughan's trademark cliffhangers are in full effect here, so the monthly reader won't feel like they got an original graphic novel-sized story that was simply chopped into three pieces so it could get sold an extra time, so while it may read better all in one sitting, it isn't like the monthly reader is getting short changed.

    I know it seems that I'm delving a little too deep into this story, but I honestly found it so entirely refreshing that I can't help but think my convoluted deconstruction is somewhat justified. Obviously, I can't wait to see where BKV takes this story - and looking even further down the road- I truly hope other writers will see what Vaughan has done here and re-examine not only how they portray the character of Wolverine, but the types of stories they choose to tell about him in the first place.

    Comics Bulletin - David Wallace Mar 4, 2008

    This is a book which appears to have some substance to go along with its style, with some disciplined storytelling and a keen eye for historical detail to go along with the more traditional Wolverine elements, and in this way it's perhaps most reminiscent of Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's original Wolverine solo series. That's good company for Vaughan and Risso to be in, and whilst this isn't the most dazzling opening issue I've ever read (there's a strong sense of this being a setup issue, with many elements moved into place in order that more interesting things can happen further down the line), I look forward to seeing whether they can present us with a story which is as memorable and well-crafted as Miller and Claremont's four issues were. The potential certainly seems to be there, and on the strength of this first issue, this may well end up as one of the better Wolverine series of recent years. Read Full Review

    (maybe Must Read. Will depend if Vaughan avoids the Wolverine cliche pitfalls of a Japan flashback) Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Daniel Yanez Mar 7, 2008

    I don't really want to see a romantic story in an action series, and probably this is why they released this comic as "Logan", the man, not the hero or the mutant. I've also seen this story many times; Vaughan must be working hard on Lost and probably didn't put much effort into it. By the end of the story this woman will perish by either Warren or from the fires of war. Boring. But I'm going to keep reading. You can't have all hits. I guess. Read Full Review
