    The artwork is good in places but weaker in other ones. Still it captured the ambiguity of the character well. I actually like seeing Daken without his super villain costume more than. The character feels more genuine and his conflicting personality can shine better. The colours were particularly good this issue. Read Full Review

    This series desperately needs to find a strong, coherent direction, and fast. Hopefully the impending relaunch will bring with it a new purpose for this wayward mutant. Rarely has a character this well-written simultaneously been so boring. Read Full Review

    This is probably an issue to skip if you are looking to try the book out for the first time - far better to wait until the crossover begins. For longtime readers, this is a definite filler issue, and not an especially good one. Passable - but they could have done a little better. But then, most comic writers don't seem to be able to tell a good single issue story these days... Read Full Review

    This is usually a great book, but this fill-in issue is not. Skip is and wait for the Frankencastle storyline. Other than my enjoyment of Pierfederici's art, and more so the lighting and shading, there was not much here I did enjoy. I will say once again, I really enjoy this book, but sometimes you get a not-so-great fill-in issue in between story lines. Read Full Review

    "Dark Wolverine" is at its best when Daken and the story have a purpose. When it languishes in these pointless interludes and one-off stories, it descends into pseudo-poetic storytelling that never amounts to anything entertaining or meaningful. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Joe Lopez Jun 17, 2010

    Dark Wolverine was the sleeper title of 2009 for me. It was ten times better than it had any right to be, and I looked forward to every new issue. Alas, the last three issues have been highly disappointing and the three before that? Middling, at best. Sometimes, you just have to pull the plug. Bye-bye, Daken. It was fun while it lasted.
