    So let's talk opinions. A really strong issue. Better, more cleaner art than last issue. Less shadowy and more colorful. Also, it was great to see Mystique get some face time. She is such a great character with so many ties to everyone and everything that I fell that she needs to be used a lot more. The exchanges between her and Daken are priceless. I was a little curious as to why she thought Nightcrawler had shown up at the restaurant. I'm pretty sure she knows her son is dead. I guess it was an instinctual reaction to the brimstone. Her shape change into the dress was also pretty cool. I keep forgetting at times that she has that ability as well. I hope next issue Daken throws Demon Wolvie a good beating. That's my opinion folks. Take it or leave it. Read Full Review

    Even Giuseppe Camuncoli shines brighter on this series. While we don't get to see Daken's new duds in action, Camuncoli does provide a great deal of eye-catching imagery, from a battle with a flame-spewing Wolverine to a sexually charged rendezvous with Mystique. Daken's adventures have never looked better. The Mystique/Daken pairing is an interesting one, and hopefully one that will continue to be explored beyond the confines of this arc. And even if the series remains a little too preoccupied with Daken's monologues and manipulations, it's still a very enjoyable read. Wolverine might not be having much fun in Hell these days, but his readers have plenty of reasons to celebrate. Read Full Review

    Daken is more than just a Wolverine Jr. Marjorie Liu has done some amazing things with him and I love his manipulative nature. It's a shame he isn't portrayed this way in his other appearances, but it makes for compelling reads with moments like his interaction with Mystique in this issue. Little leary about the possessed Wolverine story, but otherwise enjoying this new series. Read Full Review
