    Comicosity - Emma Houxbois Sep 1, 2016

    All New Wolverines first annual is a much needed diversion in the the midst of what may very well be Marvels darkest and cruelest company wide event, but it also marks an important milestone for its marquee female lead and serves as a reminder that its creative team are the best at what the do, and what they do is, in fact, very pretty.

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Aug 31, 2016

    If you haven’t been following All-New Wolverine that’s ok, this is a great jumping on point. The annual is so much fun and stands on it’s own really well without needing much back story. This is a must read issue and a must read series. We are going to be heading into Enemy of the State II and it’s sure to be a wild ride so hop on now and hold on for dear life! Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner Sep 5, 2016

    Tom Taylor uses this Annual to give fans a fun, body switching story and if you are a sucker for that like myself, you will love it.  Everything here, from the characters to the art, pushes the wacky story forward and when it ended, I wanted so much more.  Please have this happen some more!

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Aug 31, 2016

    All-New Wolverine Annual #1 is my favorite book this week. We get a delightful meeting between Wolverine and Spider-Gwen. Taylor, Takara, and Lopes are on point with the story. The crux of the plot passes by a little quickly, and the resolution to tie up the self-contained story feels a little convenient. Regardless, it's an enjoyable issue. Even if you're unfamiliar with the characters, you can easily dive into the story. Do yourself a favor and buy the issue. Maybe you should even buy two issues to had off to a friend to try to convert them into reading comics. Read Full Review

    The GCRN - Dan Clark Sep 6, 2016

    All-New Wolverine Annual #1 is the type of comic tale we do not get often enough. One that is willing to take an out of the box concept without having it over stay its welcome. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 31, 2016

    If all you want from this issue is a fun, goofy team-up between two of Marvel's most prominent heroines, you won't leave disappointed. This comic looks great and delivers a steady stream of body-swap comedy. But given how well the main series has managed to blend humor and emotional drama, it's disappointing that the annual feels so light and inconsequential by comparison. There's too much missed potential with this crossover. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Sep 2, 2016

    The story still lacks in some key components, but it still has all the overplayed features we would expect of a body-swapping story. Two characters swap bodies, they fumble around hilariously, and they come together to fix this mess. It's a simple formula and All-New Wolverine Annual #1 sticks to it for the most part. It doesn't try to overachieve beyond its worth. It doesn't lower the bar either. Overall, this issue acts as another step in X-23's evolution as the new Wolverine. So long as she can avoid Clone Sagas and avoid falling in love with redheads, it's safe to say she's on the right track. Read Full Review

    Nerdophiles - Jackson Adams Sep 7, 2016

    All New Wolverine Annual #1 is little more than a superheroic take on Freaky Friday but it's a good one, charming, funny and cute in equal measure. It's a hard comic to justify paying $4.99 for with so little plot and character work but for those who can't get enough of Spider-Gwen and Laura Kinney's take on Wolverine but it's not going to be what many readers are looking for.
