    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Feb 22, 2012

    It's another winning issue for Jason Aaron. Since this title's launch, each issue has been consistently great, funny and full of action. The story takes place in three different places and switches between each with ease that creates perfect pacing. For too long, the X-Men titles have been packed with dark times and deadly threats. Now we still have deadly threats but Jason Aaron manages to cram in a slew of humor as well without it feeling artificial. We have a lot of X-Men titles right now and many of them are fun to read but WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN simply stands out. You always know what you're going to to get. It's a great read and you'll be happy you picked the issue up. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Victor Kutsenok Feb 29, 2012

    So many different characters and they were all drawn distinctive and clear. I love the casino. Nice aliens. The action was also very well laid out. A perfect job overall. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - lucstclair Feb 23, 2012

    The Brood are back in a big way, under control & on a leash with a very big and menacing alien holding on that leash as their master. Watching Wolverine & Quentin Quire wearing tuxedos, making a killing at the casino is a hilarious sight, not sure if headmaster Logan teaches cheating at gambling back in the classroom, but I suppose its for the greater good of the school. The fights with The Brood inside Kittys body reminds me a little bit of that movie Innerspace, priceless. Jason Aarons writing is what makes this title one of Marvels best series and Nick Bradshaws Arthur Adams like illustrations dont hurt either. A title like this is the reason I love comics. From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    Comicosity - Aaron Long Feb 27, 2012

    On art detail Nick Bradshaw brings some of the best art I have ever seen by his hand. There are times when his style is not my favourite, but everything clicks in issue #6 and he draws an extremely diverse crowd in bizarre locales flawlessly. The layouts are interesting, the pencils are precise and the diversity of characters he draws well in this issue astounds me. This is one of the best penciled issues I have read this month, hands down. Read Full Review

    Of all the numerous new books I've read in the last six months, this is one of the few I continue to be most excited about. Every month Aaron delivers a smart, fun, surprising book while Bradshaw has turned in amazing visuals complementing everything this book is about. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Feb 28, 2012

    Jason Aaron has been able to knock it out of the park so far with every issue of and Wolverine and the X-Men #6 is no different. Aaron has delivers great dialogue from beginning to end. The story has a strong pacing between Wolverine and Quentin Quires adventure on Planet Sin and the X-Men at the Jean Grey School fighting of the Brood. If you are a fan of the X-Men than Wolverine and the X-Men is definitely a series you should be picking up. It is the best X-Men book on the market. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Feb 22, 2012

    If all schools were like the Jean Grey School, I think kids would be spending a lot more time on their studies. There are so many different angles that this premise can take, and it's really refreshing to see Aaron and Bradshaw's ambition for this series. While it's not always the most focused series in the world, it goes places that many other books would never think to tread. And this issue is no different. Read Full Review

    I wonder how things would be if Brian Wood was writing the main ongoing seriously and Jason Aaron was writing a fun and silly companion miniseries. Hmm" Read Full Review
