    To say much more would be giving too much away, but suffice to say this issue, as well as the entire "Lost Weekend" arc that lead up to the finale are dark yet engaging comics that are a welcome addition to mainstream comics. It's sad to see it ending here. Read Full Review

    So while I'm sad that I won't be reading about Daken one to two times a month anymore, I do think the character needed a bit of a break, and look forward to seeing Daken come back strong sometime soon. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Adam J. Langton Mar 29, 2012

    The inability to invest in the story of "Daken: Dark Wolverine" #23 isn't limited to the emotions of the main character; in true superhero fashion, we are assured that every life being risked by these last destructive, villainous acts are expedited to safety, off-panel. The result is a comic where buildings are destroyed with no real risk or consequence, as the city in the Marvel Universe will be fully rebuilt without a trace of these events by the time we put the comic down. Instead of an emotional outburst or dramatic tension, "Daken: Dark Wolverine" #23 has as much impact as watching a pouting toddler smash his tinker toys. The hope as I approached this issue was even if we could not identify with Daken, we would find the emotional impact of the scenario on his father -- yet Logan remains stalwart throughout. Sadly, this is symbolic of the Daken character itself: the Marvel Universe will be unchanged in the wake of this title, leaving no trace of Daken to be found. Read Full Review

    Daken was not exactly a great character, but that is due to the fact of how he was handled since his inception, when written well he's charismatic, when he is not, he comes off as a pointless jerk.

    A decade has passed and as far as I know, he has a been a shadow in the marvel universe, a shame. A good writer could revitalize him
