    This series is off to a decent start, but it would benefit greatly if Peck, Boschi, and Brown were able to transform some of the text into imagery in the next installment. Read Full Review

    Once again, the event itself is being used as a backdrop for an entirely unrelated story. There's arguably a thematic link, in that the lead characters are terrorists (who operate by inspiring fear) but that's a tenuous link to the most tenuous element of "Fear Itself."

Fear Itself: Wolverine #1 is designed to get the hardcore fans of the character while remaining accessible to the casual buyer, and it's good enough to get the job done, earning 2.5 out of 5 stars overall.

    The art wasn't that bad but it wasn't spectacular either. Nothing really stood out to me. The cover wasn't half bad but the rest was forgettable. Read Full Review
