    The art is pretty wishy washy, forcing us to focus on this terrible inner-monologue even more. Simone Bianchi seems to be trying different styles as the issue goes on. He does pretty well with the gore, and doesn't constantly put the one hot woman in the issue in sexy positions, though her outfit betrays her at every turn. The issue on the whole is mediocre, but it does work as a good first issue for readers, as the story's pretty simple and you get a good idea as to whether or not this is your kind of book.

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 8, 2012

    The script itself doesn't justify the price of admission. This issue heavily focuses on fight scenes between Wolverine, Sabretooth, and the mysterious redhead who appeared at the end of #310. The steady stream of generic and often downright goofy action movie one-liners makes it difficult to take the action seriously or find any emotional investment in the tale. The new female character shows potential, at least, though her climactic revelation is disappointingly predictable. Ultimately, however, this issue is simply sparse and barren. Despite the fact that Sabretooth Reborn is a mere four issues long, the plot still feels stretched thin. The story of Sabretooth's return isn't half as interesting as what shenanigans the villain is currently getting into in the other X-books. Read Full Review

    Wolverine 311 is a pretty disappointing issue with a creative I really like behind it. On the plus side, I really enjoy all the colorists separately, and Simone Bianchi's art is great. I like the idea of Sabretooth being back in comic books, and the lettering on this issue is great. Read Full Review

    "Wolverine" #311 has some snazzy visuals courtesy Bianchi; where else can you get Wolverine in the cockpit of a plane while half a dozen Sabretooth arms crash in through the glass around him? In terms of a story with any real substance, though, you'd best look elsewhere. Read Full Review
