    This issue largely functions for clarification of the narrative, but its very much enjoyable. Between the art, Anitas wry narration and development as a character, and the banter between the characters, the story doesn't feel like it's at a standstill in Wolf #6. It is certainly heading in a new direction, and though its only slowly becoming clearer what that direction is, Wolf will surely keep readers guessing. Read Full Review

    Similarly, Lee Loughridge begins broadening the palette on colors, opening with brightly contrasting oranges and blues for the flashback to Anita trying to drive across the desert as a werewolf. It tapers of for much of the scenes in the present, but he brings those contrasts back out to communicate the time lapses in the flashback stories, closing out the issue as the gang drives off in search of Antoine with a complete inversion of the blues and oranges that it opened with.

    We The Nerdy - Chad Waller Feb 24, 2016

    But the big promise in Issue 7 could have realistically started in this issue, I think. Instead, we have to wait another month. Read Full Review

    Hopefully the next issue can return the series to prominence and this can be chalked up to a bad day at the office. There has simply been too much brilliance in the Wolf saga to completely dismiss it, and its warranted itself a few more chances before I give up on it completely. Unfortunately, this issue just wasnt for me, and Ive been nothing but admiring of Wolf up until now. Take that for what its worth. Read Full Review

    I thought this was one of the strongest issues of the series so far. I have rated other issues far worse. I am not sure why this one is being rated poorly.

    Seems to serve more as a recap or one that clarifies the events of the series thus far than anything else. On one hand, this series has desperately needed it since Ales Kot has been unusually more obtuse than usual with his plotting for this series, especially compared to the first 3/4 of Zero or Secret Avengers, but this comes with scarcely any plot progression in this issue. The series is very oddly paced, and considering that Kot pitched the series as his take on Hellblazer, this has been pretty underwhelming thus far. On the bright side, the art team delivers some consistently strong work, with Ricardo Ortiz' pencils and inks and Lee Loughridge's coloring delivering some strongly evocative work.
