Overall I recommend this one-shot for any Wolverine fan looking for a quick fix. The stories are all solid, the different art styles keep things fresh, and David Lapham shows that he has a nice grasp on both Wolverine and the effect he has on people. Read Full Review
While this isn't quite the waste of time that Giant Size Hulk was, the stories don't justify the extra attention. Again, we're talking about something above and beyond the normal Wolverine series, so it ought to be something really worth the time and money. I realize it's just $4, but when I go to the shop each week and run up a total that's over $100... those books add up. Ultimately the bizarre writing and poor art really made this one a letdown. Check out Aaron's work with Wolverine and Mystique or just wait until Whedon's Giant Size Astonishing hits. I promise that will be worth the money, and I'm certain it will have the proper dosage of our clawed friend. Read Full Review
