    From beginning to end Jason Aaron delivers a reading experience that is layered with great character interactions that enrich what has occurred in the Hellfire Saga up to this point. Each character involved in the story is given something to important to do in this issue. Whether its Iceman making a giant Ice Voltron, a comedic scene between Modok and Dopp or the drama surrounding Toad and Husk this issue had something for every comic book fan. The addition of Nick Bradshaws animated art style helps elevate everything going in the story to the next level. Wolverine and the X-Men #34 is a fun, engaging, and action packed comic book that no fan should miss out on. Read Full Review

    I think it would be a classic moment if the next book ends with Kade actually getting away with a plan we're unaware of instead of them just escaping (possibly through the Siege Perilous) to torment the X-Men another day. I mean, don't get me wrong. I'd love to see this annoying group of kids finally get what is coming to them. However, they were introduced with such promise (killing their parents for power) and even though their plans have come to fruition since then, none of them have matched that level of menace to make them worthwhile.

    While the action is absolutely amazing, a couple scenes get dragged out in order to make room for all of it. Kade spends the entire issue trying to convince his cohorts that they haven't yet lost the fight, but it goes on a few pages too long to be believable. Also, Toad was being choked by Husk during last issue, and he's still being choked through the end of this one. That means when you pick up the next issue, he'll have been choked for three chapters.

    If nothing else this issue is great for action, half the X-Men roll up riding Krakoa and Bobby is piloting what I can only call a giant ice Gundam Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - James Johnston Aug 16, 2013

    Even though most of The X-Men titles continue to deal with Rebel Cyclops and The First Class Kids, "Wolverine and the X-Men" continues to be arguably the stand-out title of the family with its mix of Claremont eccentricies and modern sensibilities. Read Full Review

    If the art weren't so effervescent, the story would be darkly depressing. Jason Aaron and Nick Bradshaw certainly make a solid creative backbone for "Wolverine & the X-Men" #34. The comic book is filled with little cliffhanger scenes, which means there is still a lot to be resolved in the final chapter of "The Hellfire Saga." From what I can tell in this issue, Aaron has set everything up for a whirlwind of conclusions next issue. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Aug 17, 2013

    Could this be the end of the Hellfire Brats? I sure hope so. We're only one issue away from the big finale of the Hellfire Academy story, and I hope it means we never have to hear from Kade Kilgore again. At least Jason Aaron is letting them go out in big, bombastic style! The gloves are off for this issue, my friends, with pretty much everything thrown into the fray! Read Full Review

    With only one issue left of the Hellfire Saga, the stage is set for everything to come to fruition. Of course, there's not going to be a lot of time to breathe as Battle of the Atom is just around the corner, but as Jason Aaron has shown in the past, a lot can happen in one issue so we're almost certainly in for a pulse-pounding conclusion.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Noah Sharma Aug 17, 2013

    Anchored by Kilgore's meltdown,Wolverine and the X-Men #34crawls to the peak ofThe Hellfire Saga, promising big things for next issue. This story is clearly written for trade, but I'm inclined to be forgiving in light of how much improved it's been since it began. Strong art and a bunch of cute character moments make this a fun issue, but it's probably the least necessary part of the arc. Read Full Review
