    The build up of this story line so far I think will finally come to a few great moments next issue. Honestly the work they've done with Quinten in this issue alone is making him a character I'm enjoying following for one of the first times. This is a complete flip on how I thought I'd feel about this title with where it's currently at. Read Full Review

    Ramon Perez has made himself at home in Wolverine and the X-Men in the last couple of months. It is a title that definitely suits his flamboyant style. Add in the vibrant colours of Laura Martin and Matt Mill and you have yourself a comic book filled with crazy visuals. But for all of the stunning action-packed panels, there is a slight cost to the static scenes. The occasional facial expression is missed or body dimensions seem off kilter, but ultimately these are relatively few and far between. The errors are forgivable considering how exciting the rest of the visuals are. Read Full Review

    Despite that, it remains a consistent and overall enjoyable read. Few writers could get away with what Aaron does in this book, but that's part of what gives "Wolverine and the X-Men" its fiercely individualistic charm. Issue #27 isn't a classic on its own terms (and in fairness, the middle parts of any story will struggle to be) but in the end, it is a good indication of everything that makes the book what it is.

    With one issue left of this arc, I've got my fingers crossed for a strong conclusion. Aaron's stories tend to lose their way in the middle whilst starting and ending very well, so previous experience would suggest that my prediction will be correct; in the meantime, we're treated to a penultimate issue that gets back to the core of the series and shows what happens when Aaron, his characters, and his artistic collaborators are all on the same page " excellent stuff.

    IGN - Poet Mase Mar 27, 2013

    I'm not going to act like I totally understood Aaron's reasons for assembling this particular cast at the beginning of this arc, nor am I prepared to say that I'm 100% behind the setup at this point. I will, however, say that I am enjoying the current storyline and that I'm excited to read more of what this series has to offer. The superficial aspects of this book are much less impressive than the deeper themes, so, if you can get past the basic facts of the story to see its timeless truths, you're likely to like this issue a lot more.

    However, I think there's enough X-books out there for all sorts of moods to come and play, and if you're looking for a wild adventure story with plenty of out-there moments and fantastic art work, this book will always be there for you. But I can't help but hope it strives to achieve a little more, and finds a way to balance the fun action with more interesting characterizations, like Aaron's intriguing work on Dog Logan.

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Mar 30, 2013

    Like I said, the issue is weird. And instead of focusing on Dog, Aaron is now also juggling all of the X-students, as well as a bunch of time-flung extras. There's a little too much time is spent on Metal Head for my liking. He's a neat idea, but he's a little too distracting from the characters who actually matter. And Dog's overall plan is a little weird. All of this is to prove he can be a better teacher than Wolverine? That just sounds like a stretch. But like I said, the issue was entertaining, especially the scenes focusing on the students. Aaron wrote a few flashback scenes of Wolverine counseling Kid Apocalypse, Shark-Girl and the new Sprite, and each of those scenes is pretty great, and go a long way to developing their characters. So at least there's that. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Mar 30, 2013

    This is a very rushed issue that has some good stuff, but too many flaws in the execution of its concepts and with its pacing. Even with the help of a good artistic team, this book is just not what it used to be and this issue proves it. Read Full Review
