    Wolverine recruits his son, Daken, the Dark Wolverine so they can team up to take down Romulus, the man who trained Daken. But Daken is his own man and betrays his father. But can Daken really trick his own father or is there a greater plot at work? I like that Wolverine is no longer treated as an idiot next to Daken. I like that Daken has been taken down one peg and that his sexuality is his downfall. Hes not that smart, just a psychopath. What I didnt like was the clear cut break from the last storyline where no explanation about where Daken ended up after the Siege were given. The last issue of Siege is next week and I know this series is not meant to spoil that, but some better transition is warranted. I felt like I had missed an issue. Im not a fan of Segovia. He seems to me like another of those Leinil Francis Yu clone artist. Maybe with an inker that did not reinforce Yus style it would have worked better. On the other hand if you like Yus work, this comic book is for you. Read Full Review

    Certainly, Dark Wolverine has survived better on its own than many expected, but the true test of its mettle will presumably come at the end of this story, when it becomes time for the book to strike out alone. As it is, this arc is effectively the finale to the current era of Wolverine and Daken's relationship, and the book sets that particular ball rolling reasonably well. Read Full Review

    One issue in, and "Reckoning" isn't terribly concerned with moving things along. I hope this isn't a sign that the crossover is a simple matter of claws versus claws. Romulus is a character who has tortured and manipulated Wolverine's family for generations. As poorly executed a villain as Romulus has been so far, I'd like to think Way and Liu can find a way to bring the conflict to a proper and epic finish. Read Full Review

    This is an example of good writers and a good artist whose talents are dulled by padding. This storyline is supposed to be four issues long, but if the pacing continues like this, I think it's only going to be about an issue and half of plot. It could be enjoyable if the decompression were used to show some breathtaking "money" splashes, but instead we get double spreads of... Wolverine talking at a table. And I'll say again how silly Romulus is. Read Full Review
