    On Comics Ground - Daniela Mendoza Oct 26, 2017

    A lot is happening in this arc as a whole. It is super violent and kick-ass. Keeps you on your toes and lots of things from the last issue make sense. Cabal did great in this issue, the art is great. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ivan Alio Nov 2, 2017

    Despite being exciting and fast-paced, the story is starting to drag after that explosive story introduction from the last issue. The art is still gorgeous to look at and it was really fun to see Cabal playing around the pacing and flow of the art with the comic panels. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 29, 2017

    All-New Wolverine #26 delivered a strong follow-up on the return of Sarah Kinney and the rise of the Orphans of X organization. Tom Taylor did great job using Sarah's return as a vehicle to further develop Laura Kinney as she tries to figure out how she should deal with her mom's return. At the same time, we get to see how Daken's struggle with the Orphans of X may have a deeper tie to what is going with Laura's life. What that is will be a big driving force for what goes on next, creating a nice mystery around everything that we have seen so far in this new story arc. Read Full Review

    This new Orphans of X story arc is a real return to form for this series and in my opinion the best since issue 7. Who knew Laura, Daken, Gabby, and Old Man Logan could hold up the Wolverine comics line so well while Logan was dead. My only complaint is that it seems like the Orphans of X are just basically the Red Roght Hand with a new name

    Really great issue. The Orphans of X are intense with the torture and the weird family setting. Daken is always welcome. Gabby is funny. The mystery of what exactly is going on its intriguing. Can't wait for next month.

    Like I had said last issue, I was never much of a Daken fan so I was not totally on board with this arc. While the marketing materials make it seem that Daken was in need of Laura to save him, the truth is more that Laura is trying to find him and why he was taken in the first place. Making this a little easier to accept. This issue has the two actually come together after he escapes his captors in a pretty great action scene. Most of the issue involves his escape and incarceration actually, so it was one of the gripes I had for this issue. Laura and Gabby are pretty limited in this chapter. The other is that the Orphans of X do not pose that much of a threat in my eyes yet. Sure they took out Daken and kept him prisoner. Cutting of his arm more

    Daken escapes and we get our first look at Sarah Kinney; something's very hinky with her resurrection, ah-duh. This is a pretty great story, but it's inescapably fictional, a story being built by a storyteller. What do I mean? Laura and Sarah probably had some mighty emotional things to say to each other in between #25 & #26. Those interactions were important to the characters *but didn't fit the story,* so we skipped them. That's a little unsatisfying. Juann Cabal's art, like the script, is undeniably talented but also stalled a step or two below greatness. The Daken action scenes reveal that capturing characters in motion is a struggle for Mr. Cabal. He does use inventive panel layouts to compensate. This is a top-notch popcorn comic, but more

    I really like ANW & what Taylor does. But this time I wasn't in the good mood. And I have trouble to enter in the comics.
    Festival I'm not a fan of Daken, so I didn't care. Secondly it wasn't what I expect ... I expected Laura going for her brother.
    But hey that good too to be surprised. And this book have other surprise. Like how the Orphan keep tabes on Laura. Or that they are more close that we trusted. So that may give some tension in the next book.
    Gabby is perfect as ever.
    Cover - 0/2 ... I'm not a fan of this cover & that's even close to what we read inside.
    Writing - 2/3
    Arts - 2/3 - I'm not a fan of Cabal. To much empty background. And the characters are too static.
    Sentiment - 2/2 I'm a fan of Wo more

    I can't possibly pretend this is intriguing. It's way too obvious where this whole thing is heading. I'm calling this "running out of ideas". And by the way, if you're a writer and you don't know or don't like a character... don't use them at all. That's not a proper Daken. Give him his arm back, to start with. Soule did it, literally everyone hated it, and now Taylor's doing it again? To those people that liked it, could you say what exactly it is you liked about it? The writing is bad, Laura has no depth at this point, and the plot is predictable.

    Ok 1st of all, the cover is a shameless lie; nothing like that happens in the comic. And 2ndly... WHAT IS GOING ON??? I have no idea, and doesn't even look exciting! We get the evil clone thing (srsly?), atrocious plot and using things of the faaaaaaar better story arcs. Taylor is one reeeeeeally bad writer right there. And by the way Laura should be SHOCKED that her mom is alive, and she instead acts like she was away fr like a week! Does this guy have ANY idea what this loss meant for Laura? And loooooool, what is up with the women??? Look, I know they're “related”, but they look like a carbon copy of each other, just in different ages!

    Imagine there was a comic in which Laura was featured in. She’s different than we know her to be; say, she’s cruel, bitchy, and doesn’t care about others at all. Nothing has ever happened to explain this change. She goes down in the second page by some random crew, as if she’s incompetent. One of her legs (where her signature claw is) is chopped and she can’t grow it back. Awful, right? Well, that’s what they’ve been doing to Daken so far, and unless they restore him completely or leave him out of this, I’m not gonna rate more than that. I know it’s unfair to the comic, since it’s not nearly as bad, but well, since the comic is being unfair to me as a fan of a particular character, that’s all I can do.
