    A timeless story featuring Wolverine that isn't just another of the numerous one-shots we've seen over the years. With Nick Fury as the only other character we know, there aren't any other relationships or storylines that you need to worry about. The story dealing with Wolverine trying to repay a debt captures the essence of who he is. As we all know, he will go to any means to hold true to it. The art and colors enhance the feel of the story, truly making it fit in the 70s era in which it takes place while also keeping it a timeless story that can be enjoyed at anytime. The only complaint is that this is a one-shot. It would be great to see more from this creative team. This is what one-shots should be about. An entertaining story with amazing art and colors. This may not change anything in Wolverine's mythos but sometimes you just have to treat yourself to an enjoyable comic. Read Full Review

    "Wolverine: Debt of Death" is an extremely well put together tale that operates across smooth stylistic pages. There should be more pulp one shots of Wolverine and Nick Fury in jackets and suits working hard against a world that won't ever get any better. This is the sort of issue you'll definitely find yourself reading again in a year, and thoroughly enjoying, if you haven't already lost it amongst your friends by that stage. Support this endeavor of Marvel doing a little something different, and of David Aja getting to drop more sequentials on us. Both are always good things. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Sep 7, 2011

    The art is really the driving force in this book. Aja makes full use of the setting and the trappings of the story. The book feels very much like an homage to the classic S.H.I.E.L.D. comics of the '60s and '70s, with plenty of bold, Steranko-esque imagery and engaging page construction. Even the quieter scenes are full of striking design elements. The book reaffirms the notion that Aja absolutely needs to be doing more work for Marvel again. Read Full Review
