    Newsarama - George Marston May 30, 2012

    It's rare that a tie-in book to a major event feels as vital to the story as this one does without taking away from the core book, but Aaron and Bradshaw masterfully strike that balance, and deliver a generally great Wolverine comic, to boot. Read Full Review

    Now, if you were like me and felt the most recent issue of AvX was lacking, this issue of Wolverine and the X-Men more than makes for what's been missing. With a fantastic ensemble cast and sharp witty dialogue, as painful as it is for me to say it I've thoroughly enjoyed a book that features Wolverine. The only thing that would make this read better is if Broo graced a page or two. Read Full Review

    Okay so in summary, the book is tight. It's got dramatic/ angsty moments care of Wolverine and Hope plus lots of superhero battles. It also delivered its promise of showing us a fight between Red Hulk and Iceman and teases something in the next issue that I'm hoping would be the shining moments for the mutant kids at the JGSHL.

    And yet, even the jokes here are pretty good - particularly Aunt Petunia's Favorite Nephew Benjamin J. Grimm aka The Ever-Lovin' Blue-Eyed Thing fighting Sunspot and not knowing who he is, then asking "you still got the guy with the giant maggots around?" That's just fun. So why is Aaron's Hulk so bad? I couldn't tell you. Just be glad that Wolverine and the X-Men is good right now. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long May 31, 2012

    This is by far and wide the strongest tie-in book of the entire Avengers Vs. X-Men event and, along with New Avengers, definitely worthwhile to pick up and see deeper into the event. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima May 30, 2012

    Although there have been better books in this series, this one was still a solid read. Sure it wasn't as great as the last issue, but it did have some redeeming qualities. I liked seeing Kid Gladiator in this issue; I felt that he really showed his true colors. Does he really hate the school, or deep down does he love his school and the kids he met there? It was really sweet. Jason Aaron also dealt with whethor or not it's in character for Wolverine to be the one to eliminate Hope if it called for it, and that was definitely interesting. Once again, beautiful art by Nick Bradshaw, Norman Lee and some very vibrant and beautiful colors by Justin Ponsor. Another great issue of WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Jun 4, 2012

    Technically, it's an excellent comic with top quality art and scripting with a clear set of ideas to deliver. The only way it could have been improved is with a narrower focus, but that's not a mistake on Aaron's part, just the way he's choosing to execute. Still, all things considered this is probably the best tie-in yet and definitely worth a look. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 30, 2012

    Wolverine and the X-Men is doing some necessary building, but the series would do well to maintain a greater focus on its own characters and conflicts. Read Full Review

    Population Go - Population Go Staff Jun 4, 2012

    This issue of Wolverine and the X-Men fumbles the ball a little by reducing a potentially interesting plotline into nothing more than page dressing, but redeems itself with some truly wonderful storytelling later on in the issue. Aaron knows what he's doing with this book, even if the Avengers Vs. X-Men crossover might not be letting him do all he wants with it just yet. One misstep in eleven issues is hardly anything to complain about. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Alex Evans May 31, 2012

    Honestly, this issue is a showcase of all the downsides of "the event tie-in issue." On the plus side, it has that sweet, sweet Nick Bradshaw artwork. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Jun 2, 2012

    Dont get my wrong, I love this series, its the best x-title out there. But these AVX tie-ins are useless and a waste of time & money. Now I do appreciate Nick Bradshaws cartoony style, but I think Ill skip the tie-ins from now on and just read the AVX series. Yes Ill have gaps in my collections, but who cares? Written by Jason Aaron (Scalped). From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review
