    It was wonderful seeing these two characters share the page once more, and better yet done in a way that didn't relegate Laura to the passenger seat. If you read one Generations book, make it this one. Read Full Review

    The moment in time explored in this issue was a big one for Logan and with Laura's help, while she may have not changed his fate, she did change a major part in his life. With Laura's help this one single time of doing something different will hopefully impact Amiko Kobayashi's life in a positive way. I doubt this event will make any impact in the ongoing All-New Wolverine series, but I hope that what Laura did for Amiko changes history in some way that is shown in the Marvel Universe in an upcoming story.

    Comicosity - Doug Zawisza Aug 16, 2017

    Generations has done a fine job entertaining me to this point, and Generations: Wolverine & All-New Wolverine #1 continues that trend. Yeah, it has a steep pricepoint, but if you dig either Wolverine, you really do owe it to yourself to pick this up and enjoy a comic book that was created simply for readers' joy. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Aug 17, 2017

    More than anything else, Generations: Wolverine and All-New Wolverine #1 establishes that the legacy of Wolverine isn't just measured by mountains of dead ninjas. It's part of a legacy. Logan establishes that legacy. Laura carries it on. Being Wolverine is basically a family affair, albeit with a lot more stabbing and ninja attacks, and it's a family that Wolverine fans of every generation can root for. Read Full Review

    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Ivan Alino Aug 22, 2017

    Tom Taylor wrote one of the best Wolverine team up for Marvels Generations Line-Up, despite some minor inconsistencies. Youll definitely enjoy the fast paced, action packed team-up between Logan & Laura. The bonus is that he was still able to deliver heartwarming father and daughter moments in the story. Add in the art by Rosanas & color from Woodard, the book delivers a visually stunning and satisfying story. Read Full Review

    Not a perfect comic, but seeing Laura and Logan fight alongside one another was very satisfying. Solid writing and artwork makes this a worthwhile buy . Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 16, 2017

    This is a very solid read. It has action, blood, and heart. People are butchered, reunions are had, and they show themselves to be the best there is at what they do, even if its not pretty at all. Grab this one. You wont regret it. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Aug 16, 2017

    It's clear by now that each Generations one-shot is going to follow a very specific formula, which could start to work against the series as that formula grows more and more played out. But it's one that works well in this Wolverine crossover. This issue makes the most of the Wolverine/X-23 dynamic and celebrates the legacy of a fallen X-Man. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Aug 16, 2017

    Everything about this issue was wonderful from the emotional stakes to the relationship quickly established between the two characters. Going forward Generations must live up to the strong level of quality established by this installment. Knowing the next chapter in the story is centered my favorite ongoing in the Marvel Universe makes me all the more excited. Read Full Review

    Of all the Generation issues this one has been my favorite so far. This comic really makes me miss "Ol' Canucklehead" even more and appreciate the New Wolverine a bit more. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Leroy Douresseaux Aug 18, 2017

    I could have done without the mushy stuff at the end. Part of me wants Marvel to let Wolverine be Wolverine. That would be the stone cold killer of the early new X-Men of the mid-1970s, and not the Logan softened from being part of the X-Men family and by the tragedy of Jean Grey/The Phoenix. That said, I like this action-packed, violent fight comic and its surprising guest appearance. Read Full Review

    This issue of Generations was the one team-up I was looking forward too. Tom Taylor has delivered yet again for the Generations event, and Rosanas and Woodard gives us good clean work. Generations: All New Wolverine & Wolverine #1 is a perfect balance of action and heart that's part of the Wolverine charm.

    Was really disappointed in this issue. Had been looking towards the reunion of Laura and Logan, but this was just lazy writing. No explanation of how Laura traveled to the past. She also showed no emotion for being reunited with someone who's recent death highly affected her. Generations seems to be nothing but classic characters propping up replacement characters. Laura and Logan both deserve better.

    Action packed, funny, emotional, beautiful. I must say I'm impressed with the Generations. what I believed would be throwaway stories to set up an throwaway reboot are getting better and better each time. This one hits home run on the tone, the visual and the self-contained story that leaves you breathless with the ending. The small nods to the Logan movie are nice too. This gives me hope for Legacy coming up

    Of the three Generations titles I read so far this had the most emotional weight to the story. There is still plenty of action like you would expect when two Wolverines are facing the Hand. The unfortunate part is that the story feels a little rushed in order to fit both action and drama. Much like Banner and Cho this is a pairing that existed before so we are just seeing it in a new way and it is very satisfying. Logan's awe at Laura's abilities as well as Laura's joy at seeing Logan again are explored. This also includes a nice throwback to Logan's past. Again we are left with little answers as to why Laura is in this moment of Logan's past. Like the others at a certain point after interacting with the legacy character the new generational character fades out. After reading three issues of Generations you get the idea that the characters are perhaps learning something from or changing moments from the past, but you would not get any explanation of that after reading this single issue. This creates a problem where the story does not really feel self contained so I have to give it a lower score due to that. The art was terrific in my opinion. Both fun and creating atmosphere when needed. Character designs looked great even when trying to work with old costumes. This is an enjoyable read, just lacking something to make it great.

    This ish was so much better than the previous 2 installments comibined! This book would have easily gotten higher rate but I HATED it that much just for it's lackadaisy connection to Laura's Present Day stich all for the sake of a pointless gimmick themed mini series.

    Probably the best generations book so far. Art was really good and the story flowed nicely.

    This was heartfelt and fun. This continues the theme of the Generations books appropriately with each incarnation of Wolverine proving they are the best at what they do. The only downside is that it's still frustrating to not know what caused these characters to meet; hopefully we get the answer soon and make these stories more enjoyable.

    Cover - Why do I'm dumb enough to take the variant. For once the usual is Better 1/2 Writing - So ... Why, How, Laura can appear in this story ... We (And Laura) will never know. That's a good way to piss me off. And I tell that while I love Taylor run on All-Now Wolverine. But for the good part I like Taylor choose Japan. The best story I ever read in the 90's on Wolverine ongoing was in Japan. And he make some fun joke (Like the dress part ^^). But I'm stuck with one problem. Why the mysterious bad guy being Akiko kidnapping never try to take revenge on Laura when she appear in the Marvel U. Not a single time. So ok now he is a Good guy. Or not really a bad one. But before that, I'm astonished he never try to take some revenge. 1/3 Arts - I like the art. I think Rosanas' Style is close to Lopez one. A good match. 3/3 Feelings - Well I didn't see what the point of the story. I'm even more concern by the fact I find Logan a little to ok with this kind of situation. But after Taylor is smart enough to make us understand why he go with it. But That will bring nothing to nether of them. And if that was to make some base for the Legacy, it's a complet failure. 0/2
