    The Comic Addiction - Antony Ellis Jul 20, 2009

    Of all the Dark Reign storylines at the moment, Dark Wolverine is the one I am enjoying the most, and I feel you get more panel time with the Dark Avengers than you get even in their own title. The main focus on Daken, Norman and Bullseye with smaller glances at the rest of the team is a good idea and shows a careful and controlled writing style and the book seems to be thriving in this partnership. As I said last issue – Dark Wolverine is awesome – pick it up and don’t be put off by the admittedly worrying fact that it is the story of Wolverine’s son. Dark Wolverine (and Daniel/Marjorie) have so much more to offer than angst and daddy issues! Read Full Review

    This is such a good comic! I love what Daniel and Marjorie are doing here. Daken with a few simple words and actions is managing to turn everybody against one another. Read Full Review

    Since Daken is still relatively unknown to readers and characters, Way and Liu use that to their advantage, keeping both groups off balance here, no one quite sure what Daken is really up to. However, he is turning out to be a far more interesting character that the title "Dark Wolverine" would lead you to believe. Read Full Review

    I've never read any of Daken's early appearances in the pages of Wolverine: Origins and I'll keep it that way because I suspect the less I know about him the more I'll like him. Like just about everything else under the "Dark Reign" banner right now, Dark Wolverine is a one trick pony that cannot possibly last. Having just said that, I think Daken is nonetheless an intriguing character and if the creative team can step up their game and do something more with him, I think there is potential to be found here.

    IGN - Kevin Fuller Jul 22, 2009

    Dark Wolverine isn't a lost cause. There's enough subterfuge and intrigue build something unique and interesting, but at the moment, there's not a solid foundation holding everything together. Way and Liu need to make sure there's an internal logic thread leading the action, since this looks like it'll get more complex as time goes on. This isn't Deadpool, where things don't necessarily have to make sense. Unfortunately, these are the same complaints I had with the Romulus storyline in Origins, and we all know how that is turning out, so you can see my lack of optimism with Dark Wolverine… Read Full Review
