    The cynic in me rolled his eyes when I first heard this series announced when I was at the X-Panel at New York City Comic Con in February this year, but as I’m becoming more and more drawn into the Dark Reign storyline I see the need for this story and Daniel Way and Marjorie Liu have surprised me with the quality of the storytelling and the interesting examination of one of the freshmen of the Marvel cast of characters. Don’t be put off by it being another Wolverine book! Buy it! Read Full Review

    There was a lot to like about this comic, but in particular, I was glad Daniel began to expand on Daken's "other" power. His phenomenal abilities. Since Daken's debut, the phenomenal abilities were always there, but they were kind of under-defined. This issue went a long way in establishing the extent of those abilities. Read Full Review

    Camuncoli has been a better artist. When he drew the Intimates for Wildstorm hes characters looked more compelling. The only difference is that he had a more competent inker " Sandra Hope that was capable of improving his work. Here, Catacchio only enhance Camuncolis weaknesses like the wider than normal mouths and the goofy expressions of the character. The way this is drawn is not bad, but would be a better fit in a Vertigo series, than one featuring a Wolverine. Read Full Review

    "Dark Wolverine" #75 does what it needs to do to make Daken a character who isn't a total waste of space. It's not a story I'm particularly interested in, but I'm certainly curious to see how this unique Dark Avenger plays this twisted game of his. Read Full Review

    IGN - Daniel Crown Jun 24, 2009

    Maybe it's just because this story arc follows Mark Millar's Old Man Wolverine — a tale built upon and exploiting an original idea — but this sort of recirculation serves as an unintentional and sobering reminder of the general direction of modern superhero comics. Dark Wolverine relies entirely upon the "ain't this cool" dynamic, hoping that one overextended premise is enough to satiate readers rather than appeasing them by providing a much more gratifying set of diverse and original ideas.
