    It's a good comic. It drives fantards nuts so I love it even more. Read Full Review

    Much like the issue in the original "Enemy of the State" that focused on S.H.I.E.L.D.'s efforts to de-program Wolverine, this issue hinges on the attempt to break Laura's weakness to her control scent. The difference being that Taylor frames the ordeal as an introspective, even intimate battle that hinges on the sisterly bond between Laura and Gabby. It's a firm reminder that, for all the mistakes this series can make at times, Tom Taylor really knows how to write Laura Kinney. Read Full Review

    All in all, this is a book with ambitions, and even if it doesn't always work in execution, this is worth a look. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Feb 9, 2017

    All-New Wolverine continues to be one of the best X-books on the shelves. This issue had some problems, but its still a good read. There is something to be said for the way Tom Taylor has developed Laura Kinney as a character. Its easy to let someone be a wild berserk killing machine, but Taylor has given her a heart.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 14, 2017

    All-New Wolverine #17 slows things down to resolve Laura Kinney's acceptance with her past and overcome the hold Trigger Scent has on her. In doing so Tom Taylor is able to take the time to further develop the relationships Laura has with Gabby and the X-Men. Unfortunately that character development for Laura did not help move the overarching conflict with Kimura, whose presence was almost non-existent in this issue. The lack of Kimura severely impacted this chapter of Enemy of the State II. Hopefully with all of Laura's struggles with Trigger Scent out of the way Enemy of the State II can kick it into the next gear as we get closer to its conclusion. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Paul Manzato Feb 8, 2017

    Overall, I have to say I am disappointed in where this title has gone. When it was launched, we had Laura out as Wolverine, starting a new life and carving a new future for herself. And seventeen issues in and we're back to the same old story of Laura being under the control of Kimura. Like throwing in the Phoenix Force, or mutants being killed off or time travel, this is a tired, stale plotline that I wish would just end. Sure, the Weapon X program always reared it's ugly head towards Logan every now and then, but it was always in new ways; it wasn't the same single guy always showing up to capture him. All-New Wolverine started off being fresh and full of potential, but now this book needs a real improvement to make it feel ‘all new' again. Read Full Review
