Years after the events of issue four, Wolfe and Anita do their best to pick up the broken pieces.

A brand-new timeline means a brand-new artist-RICARDO LOPEZ ORTIZ (ZERO)-on board!

    This issue was paced well and there was a lot of development in the series as the creative team helps us slowly immerse ourselves into the story. I'm looking forward to what will happen next and discovering what surprises are in store. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Patrick Hellen Jan 20, 2016

    The one downside I do have is that the mystery plot underpinning the whole series feels almost inscrutable at times. Like some of the worst parts of The X-Files when you just could not see how far this crazy went, this book is very short on details. That might be a good thing, with a grand ending like the first arc, but I find myself wishing there was a little more meat on its bones. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Jan 21, 2016

    Issue 5 of Wolf is the best issue this comic has had to date. I think this arc will pull ahead of the last one, which is really cool. Read Full Review

    Wolf does have lighthearted moments (enough to balance out the seriousness) but it is a comic better understood on a second reading. Kot is well-practiced in holding back on the reveal, and again, Wolf is no exception. Readers know enough to understand the story, but will likely get the sense that more of the little details will click into place as the story progresses. Wolf #5 is a compelling start to the new plot line. Read Full Review

    This is the Wolf in an unexpected progression for the series, but its heading places I want to go with it. Read Full Review

    Wolf remains a mystery both in terms of story and whether this series will begin to gel as a cohesive tale. I hope for the latter but with each issue my doubts grow. Read Full Review

    Comic Bastards - Asa Giannini Jan 20, 2016

    To put all this simply, Wolf is a messy concoction of half-baked ideas, mismatched tones, and odd plot-devices. I might be inclined to say that Wolf would improve as it got underway, but as a fifth issue, I can't help but see this as an indication that the series isn't improving and won't anytime soon.
