After the events of KILLABLE, Wolverine has something to prove. Before he can take on Sabretooth again, he'll need to build himself back up, get better and stronger than he's ever been...but it's not as easy as he thought, and he'll soon find himself turning to other means of revenge when the normal channels don't seem to be working fast enough. Can he fight back his demons, or is this the beginning of a Wolverine who's gone to the dark side?

    This series is definitely becoming a must read for me and in terms of story telling it might even rival Waid's recent Daredevil run. The creative team on this book is perfect and I hope they stay together for a strong run or at least until the story they all want to tell is done. Read Full Review

    The fun that Paul Cornell has had with the writing shines through. The artwork feels just as joyously created. This helps keep my interest in an already exhilarating book. I'm definitely looking forward rot the next issue, as you should be. Who knows, vampire Jubilee might start walking in daylight next issue with the newly killable Wolverine. Would you really want to miss that? Read Full Review

    Paul Cornell is delivering a different sort of Wolverine story. We've seen so many over the years and seeing the details unfold over his new alignment is fascinating. It's still a little difficult to accept Logan in this new status quo but that's part of what makes this new series different from past ones. Ryan Stegman's art is a joy to see. He captures the gritty nature of Wolverine's world perfectly and getting to see SUPERIOR Spider-Man felt like a treat. There's no telling where this series will take Wolverine next and that's what makes it so interesting. Read Full Review

    Wolverine fans hoping for a rich plot line will not find it with this issue. This issue follows up well to issue #1 but it falls short an is lacking any real progression. There are no surprise twists and this can leave the reader feeling bored. Overall this issue is just above mediocre. This series feels as if it won't be picking up with the next couple issues.

    Unlike the last issue, there isn't much action going on so expect a lot of dialogue and most of it not as entertaining as it should be. As painful as this is to get to the meat of the story (which I hope is coming in one of the next issues), we at least get Stegman illustrating an absolutely beautiful comic. He's one of those artists I wish they'd clone so he could work on multiple titles for the company. I must say that it's also fitting that he had a chance to draw a Spider-Man crossover issue. Still the issue overall isn't strong enough to carry over the fact that Wolverine is now ‘killable' and hopefully we'll be seeing the action kick up a notch soon. Read Full Review

    And that's what the problem with Wolverine is right now. It's not about making him killable, or losing his healing factor - that's been done before, to greater effect than this. Cornell has a smart idea, with Wolverine casting aside his unshakeable ethical code - but he hasn't earned it yet. He hasn't played true to Wolverine being a tragic hero, but instead made him a weak second banana in his own book. There's a lot of really cool possibilities for Wolverine in his "Killable" state, but with Cornell throwing in spectacle and guest stars rather than cohesive character work, you can't help but wish this book was put out of its misery.

    The first two issues of this series haven't had too much action, which I guess is to be expected now that Wolverine is killable. Of course, that means he's had a few close calls and now wears body armor. These are all things that I should find interesting, but I don't. The direction they are taking Wolverine aside, I did really enjoy this issue with Wolverine catching up to Spider-Man and having a conversation about changing, I thought that was very nicely handled and made me reflect back on myself a bit. The art in this run works better for me that the previous, so definitely keep that up.
