    As you may or may not be aware, I also write the weekly “DC Rebirth Recap and Review” where we look at how easy it is for new readers to pick up the week's issue with very little backstory, so it should come as no surprise to you that I'm a big proponent of the recap page. Although there was a recap page here, it wasn't overly necessary to enjoy the comic itself – yes it helped establish why Laura and Gabby were doing what they were doing at the outset of the comic, but the following issues are set up more with the appearance of Ironheart than any previous events, which makes this ideal for new – or returning – readers.

    All that really matters is that the new status quo allows both Laura and her younger sister Gabby to serve as superhero partners. Their relationship continues to be the driving force of the series and the main reason All-New Wolverine is one of Marvel's most purely enjoyable superhero comics. Read Full Review

    Shiny new ResurrXion threads are just one part of an entertaining new storyline in All-New Wolverine. Still a great comic with a fun cast. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Jean-Luc Botbyl Apr 5, 2017

    After reading this issue, Im kind of game for more of this book. Im not convinced that I really love it, but its good enough to warrant checking out a few more times. Even if its not some great masterpiece, I really enjoyed the time I spent reading this issue. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Dan Mayhoff Apr 10, 2017

    This is a brand new jumping on point for readers and this is the perfect introduction to this series. We get an amazing and action packed issue that gives us plenty of story in this one issue while setting up the path we are going to be taking in the next few issues to come. The art is really special, with exception to a couple of close up panels but the story was incredibly satisfying and seeing the two different storylines come together in more than one place was amazing.

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 10, 2017

    All-New Wolverine #19 does a good job kicking off the new "Immune" arc. Tom Taylor's ability to create a sense of scale continues to be a big positive for this series. Taylor is also able to push Laura Kinney forward as Wolverine and create an interesting direction for her and Gabby now that the latter is getting directly involved in the action. Read Full Review

    A few nitpicks on an otherwise average story. Nothing to write home about. Read Full Review
