X-23 was created to be a weapon and for a time, that's all she was. But with the help of her mentor, LOGAN-the original WOLVERINE-she escaped that dark past. Tragically, Logan has fallen, but Laura will continue in his footsteps as a hero. Recent events have her doing everything in her power to keep those around her alive, as violent forces are hell-bent on mutual destruction. If anyone can stop them, it's Laura. She is the best there is at what she does. She is THE ALL-NEW WOLVERINE.

    As the intrigue deepens, the story stays focused right where it needs to be, on Laura by telling a classic Wolverine story carefully calibrated to her current circumstances. Read Full Review

    There's a real momentum to this series even so early into its lifespan. Taylor's pacing is quick, but not to the point where he does the characters or conflict a disservice. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Milo Milton Jefferies Nov 29, 2015

    The issue itself is an incredibly solid one and All-New Wolverine so far secures itself as one of the most reliable and entertaining series on stands, with the creative team managing to handle a likeable and interesting protagonist in the form of Laura Kinney very well and give her some great action scenes in her own part of the Marvel Universe. And on top of that, the cliffhanger makes for a superb, unpredictable ending and its going to be very interesting to see just where Taylor takes us next. All-New Wolverine proves that theres life beyond Logan for the role of the Wolverine character, and this series is quickly shaping up to be well worth your time. If for whatever reason youve missed out the first one, go back and catch up as soon as possible, it's great. Read Full Review

    Tom Taylor is taking X-23 to the next level. Laura has come a long way since she was first introduced in 2004. Having her take on the Wolverine mantle is allowing her to step up and you can see her outlook on things changing in a way. There's a great feel in the characterization in the art along with some cool action sequences. You'll love the nice twist and cliffhanger at the end and it'll will make you do a Darth Vader impression ("Nooooooooooooo!") when you discover you have to wait until the next issue to find out what's going to happen. I never thought I'd love X-23 as the Wolverine this much. Things are about to get pretty nuts. Read Full Review

    I still like the action when it happens in this series, but All-New Wolverine has some big shoes to fill in terms of pacing and story. Granted, the last volume of regular Wolverine had a lot of problems, and hopefully this series will find its footing sooner than later. Read Full Review

    ALL-NEW WOLVERINE #2 is well-drawn, does a great job at giving us an idea about the main character's ethics, point of view and where she currently stands in life, and has a lot of potential " let's just hope it didn't waste that potential during its final pages. Read Full Review

    "All-New Wolverine" #2 is fun, pure and simple. X-23 was often characterized by the doom and gloom followed her, so it's nice to see that she can still deal with heady subjects while having a bit of cheer and a spring in her step as Wolverine. The death of Wolverine may have come across as a bit gimmicky, but -- with Laura as the new Wolverine -- it was clearly all worth it. I'll be back for more. Read Full Review

    Henchman-4-Hire - Sean Ian Mills Nov 28, 2015

    The new Wolverine has started off on a very Wolverine-esque adventures. She's got bad guys, some solid supporting players, a good romance angle; I just hope Taylor and his art team can really start pushing this series to greatness. It's a fine read so far, but it could use a bit more spark. Read Full Review

    Considering that I really enjoyed the first issue of All-New Wolverine, I'm hoping that this is just an unfortunately hiccup. There's a lot of potential here, but it's troubling to see Taylor and company committing to a high concept that not only doesn't play to their strengths as artists, but has been mined so thoroughly and so well by such a high-profile group. We're only two issues in, but already this series is in need of some major course correction - we already have Orphan Black, and we don't need another clone of it. What we do need is for this creative team to show us how all-new and all-different this Wolverine can be. Read Full Review
