    Overall, I wasn't expecting much from this book and wasn't excited for it, but after reading it, I was pleasantly surprised. ULTIMATE COMICS WOLVERINE #1 is a great start to a new mini-series featuring what seems to be a great, stand-alone story. If you've been reading ULTIMATE COMICS X-MEN, then you really should pick this book up. If you haven't been reading that book, then ULT WOLVERINE may be a tougher sell, since so much has happened in X-MEN in the past year.Overall, I recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    One Quest - Chris Cobb Mar 15, 2013

    Not a lot of explained in this issue, but it's got a kind of feeling and scope to it that promises to give both old fans and new fans of the Ultimate comics something to get excited for, and just wait for the final reveal at the end! Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Mar 13, 2013

    David Messina makes his Ultimate debut alongside Bunn with this series. For whatever reason, Messina's work is much stronger in the present-day scenes. His figures and facial expressions are a bit stiff in the flashbacks, and the overall look of the series is much more smooth and detailed in the other scenes. Hopefully those scenes are more indicative of what readers can expect going forward. Read Full Review

    We'll see where we go from here. I'm interested in seeing, but it's not a must read like it's other universe's comics. Read Full Review

    Entertainment Fuse - Kat West AKA Comic Uno Mar 15, 2013

    Even though the Wolverine part of the story felt out of place I still enjoyed Jimmys story enough to recommend this issue. It seems like a fun mini series that explores past stories that could have been easily forgotten. This will be especially interesting for old Ultimate comics fans. Pick this up! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Nat Webb Mar 18, 2013

    With all that said, there are certainly things to like about "Ultimate Comics Wolverine" #1. Even if they're only flashbacks, it's nice to see Wolverine back in action, especially in the role Bunn has given him: professional badass in charge of a team up against a mysterious enemy. Watching him give orders is always a blast. The mystery driving the book is plenty intriguing, and it'll be fun to watch it unravel simultaneously in the past with Wolverine and the present with Jimmy Hudson. The question for "Ultimate Comics Wolverine" #1 is whether it will be able to achieve the Marvel gold standard of action and character drama, or if Bunn and Messina will settle for bronze.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Matt Sargeson Mar 19, 2013

    Cullen Bunn does a fair enough job, though it's one he'd be hard pressed to mess up. He's working with one character who's long dead and one who few care about; the stakes are pretty low. It's a fairly inauspicious start to the series, one where themes of family secrets and shadowy government conspiracies are as likely to cause eye-rolling in its audience as much as they do excitement. At $3.99 an issue can I recommend you pick it up? Not really. Collected as a trade? Let's wait and see. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Matthew Meylikhov Mar 15, 2013

    “Ultimate Comics Wolverine” is a decent start to a mini, but it's one of those things where if you're not an Ultimate fan, there's not much to see here. That's pretty much the general state of the Ultimate universe, actually — what was once created to be infinitely accessible has now warped its way into becoming so insular that, in order to (assumedly) get the end of a story started three years ago, we're given a spin-off mini written by a different author. That's not inherently bad, especially if you're an Ultimate fan already, but if you're coming for Bunn, Messina or just Wolverine in general, you're better off looking at their work elsewhere.
