    Analog Addiction - Jideobi Odunze Jul 10, 2013

    For a Wolverine book, this is actually one I can say I want to follow. You can't say that for many books focused on him, but Jason Aaron managed to make this one more than just action. It's story driven and it pushes Wolverine into situations where he's out of his comfort zone. Who knows what the end to this issue will lead to, but just knowing that he will become Japan's most wanted can't be good for him. This is a great book to break into Marvel Infinite and makes you hopeful for whatever else they produce. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Jul 9, 2013

    What this ultimately boils down to is whether or not this issue is worth $2.99. Despite the solid effort at switching up the reading experience and making it way more cinematic, this is still a relatively quick read. I'd say if you're a huge James Howlett fan or if you're really craving a sharp looking action tale, then yes, shell out the $2.99 and hopefully you'll dig it and find yourself wanting more when all is said and done. For everyone else, I can't recommend it being worth what they're asking for, especially when BATMAN '66 -- a comic which has a similar length and unique reading experience -- is a mere $0.99. I'd love to give this a 3.5/5, but since I can't give half stars, I'll round up because of the really impressive artwork. Seeing as I'm a total sucker for great visuals and action, I'll definitely be reviewing this again next Tuesday. Read Full Review

    Hopefully next week there is a bit more story to balance out the onslaught of the action. Even still, this new series feels very much like a big action movie and is a lot of fun to experience. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Jul 10, 2013

    As a monthly proposition $2.99 isn't too great an outlay, but remember that this is a 13-part weekly comic. It's going to cost almost $40 for the whole story. It's too expensive for what it is. Perhaps there's a good reason why the economics don't work at $0.99 per issue. Maybe Marvel plans a price drop further down the line. But at $2.99, they'll only sell one issue to me, where at 99c, they'd have sold 13. "Wolverine: Japan's Most Wanted" proves that Marvel has the stories and creators to bring in a new, digital audience, but given the choice between one issue of this and three issues of similar-quality material from their competitors -- even for a Marvel devotee, it's not a difficult choice.

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Jul 12, 2013

    While “Wolverine: Japan's Most Wanted” is a noble effort to advance the medium, there are clearly some problems that need to be ironed out. It's an extremely young medium, so the storytelling choices and logical approaches to the technology will get better and better. The technical complaints are, to be sure, very minor. Still, this digital comic does suffer from a story that feels redundant. If the intent was to focus more on this being a presentation of the technology, then they've succeeded. As a compelling story that will get you to click the “Buy” button next time? Wolverine comes up a little shorter than usual. Read Full Review
