    This was a nice first issue for new writer Cullen Bunn. He really takes the reigns from Jason Aaron quite nicely. Read Full Review

    I had my doubts about the future of the series however Bunn's writing has alleviated any concerns I had about a post Jason Aaron Wolverine…for now. Read Full Review

    I haven't been excited about a solo Wolverine book since -- well, ever. I've enjoyed issues here and there and read runs intermittently as driven by the creative teams. This run certainly has all the makings of being another one of the runs I stick with due to talent on the title. "Wolverine" #305 is a tidy point for entering the mythology of Marvel's most famous mutant and it appears as though Bunn and Pelletier are set to make the experience memorable. Personally, I'm hoping this title becomes one of the titles Marvel ships out more than once a month, that is how much I'm looking forward to it. Read Full Review

    With such big shoes to fill, Cullen Bunn starts his run off on the right foot. Look for this book to only get better (until Jeph Loeb takes over for a few months with #310) Read Full Review

    It's a shame Bunn won't have time to build anything larger with this series, but at least he seems off to a capable start with this arc. Read Full Review

    Paul Pelletier's art is the star of issue #305. I love how he draws Wolverine, I also love his hybrid of modern and '70s-style comic book art. His work has a dirty feel to it, like a dark, violent horror story. Pelletier has a great handle on what makes action leap off a page and his detail work is extraordinary. I'm hoping as the issues wear on that Bunn's writing will catch up to Pelletier's pencils. For now, I'm just happy Jason Aaron is gone. Read Full Review

    Maybe Im just going through "Aaron on Wolverine no more" withdrawal, and am not in enough of a recovered state to objectively assess Bunns first issue as series writer, but if any writer has the potential to follow such a great run, Bunn does. Ill give the series time to breath, and Bunn time to find his voice on the book, but so farlets just say the jury is out. Read Full Review

    This comic never really grabbed me. It was an okay read and all, and a fine way to kill a few minutes, but it just didn't pull me in. So Rot is somehow manipulating Wolvie, making him blackout and kill people... All of a sudden... Seeing as that Wolvie is on like EVERY hero team there is, and as such is teaming with pretty much every hero there is, you'd think he'd say to... oh, I don't know, Iron Man, or Rachel Grey, or Hank Pym, or somebody, “Hey bub, I've been blacking out and killing people. Can you fix that for me?” Instead, Wolvie goes off on his own, has NO idea how to find Rot, and tells nobody where he'd gone... Very dumb, Wolvie... Very dumb. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Mat 'Inferiorego' Elfring Apr 25, 2012

    The first issue of this new story line is a pretty big miss, unless you're a fan of Dr Rot during Jason Aaron's Weapon X run. On the up side of things, we got to see Doop hanging out for a panel, and this issue is filled with some great action and violence. Read Full Review

    While I haven't been a big Cullen Bunn fan lately (Captain America, Venom), I did really enjoy this issue very much. Solid writing, violence, and good storytelling with excellent art by Pelletier sold me. I'll definitely be getting the next issue.
