    This series has really surprised me, and it just keeps getting better and better, with this issue being phenomenal. It's not only interesting, but keeps the mysterious nature of the story flowing smoothly, and the action sequence near the end was epic, and brutal. I would highly recommend both this issue, and the series, and at this rate I'm expecting a phenomenal conclusion. Read Full Review

    There's quite a bit of mayhem and dismemberment, so this probably isn't a comic for kids - but most comics fans will love it. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - Mike Apr 17, 2013

    The fun thing about the series is that it doesn't take itself that seriously. With other writers, it really could have just been another dark, gritty, drama-laden, snikt-snikt-bub-filled Wolverine story. But there's just as much humor as there is slicing off limbs. It's a cool change of pace. Read Full Review

    Who'd have thunk the auteur book of Marvel NOW! would be Savage Wolverine? Idiosyncratic yet stylish, this book is unapologetically all Frank Cho, and if you don't enjoy his cheesecake beauties, his brief bursts of violence and his increasingly random supporting characters, well, this is definitely not the book for you.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Apr 19, 2013

    While there seems to be an uneven division of action and exposition amongst the characters and throughout the book, the action, the concepts themselves and the art more than make up for it, giving us a gorgeous book to look at. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 17, 2013

    That said, Wolverine's presence does lead to a particularly cool action sequence. Cho renders a terrific fight between Wolverine and a ban of gigantic apes. It's brutal, bloody, and entirely unblemished by the usual sort of "I'm the best there is at what I do" monologue blabber that permeates most of Wolverine's battles (until the immediate aftermath, anyway). Cho's decision to include more smaller panels in many of his pages doesn't always suit the dialogue-driven scenes (especially those where the dialogue is shifted over to the gutter), but in these action scenes the approach works very well.

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Apr 18, 2013

    Two books this week come down to fatal decisions that Wolverine has to make and of the two, this one is less successful in the argument it makes and the execution on Wolverine's behalf. Frank Cho's art is nice to look at and his subject matter is the very stuff comics and pulp were built around, but the story itself is thicker than it needs to be. The pages where Cho tucks the narration off to the side and lets the panels tell the story really shine and carry this book. Much as I was enamored with Stout's artwork, but cannot recall a line of text from any of the Stout books I owned, I can see Frank Cho making a similar impression on readers of "Savage Wolverine" #4.
