DON'T MISS THIS! It's a prelude to the biggest Wolverine arc in years. War is brewing between the ninja assassins of the Hand and the gun-toting gangsters of the Yakuza, and it leads Wolverine to come face to face with Wilson Fisk, the infamous Kingpin of crime. What mysterious former love interests have come along for the ride? And just who is behind this war anyway? Do you like surprises? If so, then don't miss this issue's last page, as it offers up a doozy.

    Aaron, more than any other comic writer today produces the perfect blend of action, suspense, drama, romance and comedy. Some writers will focus too much on one aspect and not enough on everything else. Aaron never has that problem, which is too his credit, and maybe to the discredit to the series after the next four issues. This was a great starting point to a new story arc that will no doubt bring us on an adventure to the land of the Rising Sun. Read Full Review

    It's action-heavy and not particularly revelatory, groundbreaking, or emotionally evocative, but I cannot deny that this was a really fun comic that sees Jason Aaron clearly operating within his comfort zone. Read Full Review

    Well here we are folks. The end of another era. If I am not mistaken, this issue marks the beginning of the end of Jason Aaron's run on Wolverine. I'm not sure I will miss him, since his run, to me, has been the worst run ever on any Wolverine book that I can remember. Read Full Review

    It's fun to watch Jason Aaron work. It's nice to see more weight to his plot, but I'm extremely happy that he's still including a strong dose of insanity. The transition from issue #19 to issue #21 doesn't go quite as smoothly for the artwork as it does for the scriptwork. However, this book is a solid, entertaining tale when all is said and done.

    Comic Vine - Matt Demers Dec 21, 2011

    It seems like a bit of a waste to have Wolverine's solo book be so detached from the Regenesis storyline when Logan is such a central character in that crossover. Like the many team books he's in, you can't help but wonder where the heck the guy finds the time. Read Full Review

    Bigger than the story, the art is the main problem with Wolverine #20. The work Renato Guedes does here sucks. The Kingpin looks like a giant deformed baby half the time, the other he looks like George "The Animal" Steele. Every single solitary face in every panel has some kind of dumb expression. It’s as if he can’t draw a face unless it’s doing something dumb. I also hate his line work. The drawings look sloppy and rushed. The art kept me thinking it was going slide off the page at any moment. For an issue that’s supposed to launch the biggest arc in Wolverine history, issue #20 doesn’t do much but remind us why this series needs some new blood. Read Full Review
