    Some of the greatest Wolverine and the X-Men issues have been buoyed by the details, and the latest issue is a prime example. Whether they're in-your-face details like the effect of Quentin's speech on his teammates, barely-there gems like Joe Caramagna's effects and lettering, or entirely invisible like Aaron's script work, this book is teeming with quality entertainment. Even the tongue-in-cheek jabs at Cyclops' open letter and roster schematics are pure gold. Palpable teen angst and danger have returned to the pages of Wolverine and the X-Men in an adventure that everyone needs to experience. Read Full Review

    What can I say? After 25 issues, this is still a very worthy comic that’s #1 on my monthly pull list. Read Full Review

    This series is still fantastic and I would suggest any new readers to start picking up old issues. You do not necessarily have to do this, but the stuff you will have missed has just been outstanding. It is worth reading as much material on this run as you possibly can. The best thing is, it is still knocking out quality issue after quality issue. Read Full Review

    Den Of Geek! - Marc Buxton Feb 14, 2013

    Sadly, the art, while serviceable, doesn't have the same energy or dynamism as Aaron's story. Ramon Perez draws great faces and he has a good sense of comedic timing, but his action scenes are cluttered, and everything looks a bit TOO cartoony. Still, this the best X-book on the market.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 15, 2013

    Perez is a nice change in terms of the art, with an expressive, cartoony style that still feels very different than the rest of the Marvel stable. That said, the subplot featuring Wolverine's lost brother Dog doesn't quite enthrall yet, sapping this issue of some of its strength. Read Full Review

    It looks like Wolverine and the X-Men is going to stay on track as the excellent book that it has proven to be, time and time again, if this issue is any indication. Aaron's deft character work weaves plotlines and intimate development together effortlessly, whilst Perez's artwork captures the insanity of the Savage Land and the quieter character moments with equal aplomb.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Feb 17, 2013

    This series is crawling back slowly to its ancient known quality with an issue showing what made people like it in the first place: good characters, humor and the usual quality art. If Aaron can keep this up, we may have a return to glory for this series. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Feb 18, 2013

    With all the drama that has been surrounding the X-Men lately it is nice to have an issue like Wolverine and the X-Men #25 that focuses on telling a fun X-Men story. Jason Aaron continuously finds new ways to make Wolverine and the X-Men a different type of comic from the regular Marvel comics, and it shows. A lot of what goes on in the Savage Lands feels fresh thanks to the Jean Grey Academy students' distinct voices during the trip. The addition of characters from Wolverine's past helps elevate what will happen in this arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Feb 18, 2013

    If anything's a problem with "Wolverine and the X-Men," it's that the sheer pace and number of storylines and characters leaves it feeling cluttered and often unsatisfying in a single-issue chunk. It's interesting to see Wolverine's brother turn up, but there are plots from last issue, from two issues ago, from probably ten issues ago that it'd be nice to see acknowledged, if not necessarily resolved. Yes, the concentration of material is part of the book's charm, but it's also what limits the amount of enjoyment you can get from any one issue. It looks great and it's an entertaining read, but after yet another hyper-dense issue of new plots springing up every three pages, it's hard not to feel as though a breather every now and again might be a good idea -- and once again, this is anything but.

    The weird treatment of characters and the poor art makes me hesitant to recommend this issue, but here's hoping next time is better! Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Kevin Mak Feb 17, 2013

    Jason Aaron and Ramon Perez make a very good team to tackle Wolverine and his young team's misadventures in the Savage Land. Dog Logan as the main antagonist in the arc seems odd considering the characters involved in this series, but after the first issue, it is difficult to tell how it will work out in the end. Overall a good start to what could be an interesting story arc. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Feb 13, 2013

    What happened in this issue? Why are we here, in the Savage Land? Why isn't the dialogue better? How come this story in this issue doesn't mesh well with the overall scop of the series in general? Those are the types of questions I asked myself while reading the latest issue of WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN. This issue feels just so completely out of place, that I wondered whilst reading it why Jason Aaron decided to do this now. It feels like a filler issue and seems totally out of place when we look at everything else that has been happening to the school lately. In addition to the fact that I really don't understand why things happened the way that they did in this issue, I am at a complete loss when it comes to the reason. Read Full Review
