    Im not a fan of the artists work as their storytelling is not good. Theyd rather put dismembered panels all over the place instead of concentrating on telling the story clearly. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Dec 1, 2009

    Indeed, it's hard to say whether it's a problem with the art or writing, but the one thing about the issue that can be truly said to fail is the ending. A lot of discussion already centers on whether it's supposed to be ambiguous -- whether Emmy killed herself or not "- but if people can't figure out if it's intentionally ambiguous or not, then the storytelling hasn't done its job somewhere. Beyond that, there's nothing huge to complain about, but it's a weak conclusion to a weak arc in a book that has a weak premise to begin with. I don't know where this series is going or what it's supposed to be doing, and as a reader, I can't help but feel that Dark Wolverine needs some direction -" fast. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Paul Steven Brown Nov 25, 2009

    The following three-issue arc has been a mess. It started off decently enough; Daken's public image wasn't doing any P.R. favors for Norman Osborn's Avengers, so the former Green Goblin concocted an elaborate damage control plan. While Daken's questionable machinations made the first arc fun, this time around there seems to be too much ambiguity. By the conclusion of this issue I was left confused as to any hint of Daken's motives. Also, the badly sequenced final pages complete demolish any chance of understanding of what actually happens upon the story's conclusion, that the entire arc is further diminished. I don't care how many times you tumble through the air, if you can't stick the landing; you're going to get a low score from the judges. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony Rakittke Nov 27, 2009

    I'd like to offer Dark Wolverine #80 as The Worst Comic of the Year. I'm done buying this title and strongly advise anyone else currently reading it to do the same. We deserve much, much better than this. Read Full Review
