    Overall this is an extremely solid set up issue with lots of first-rate storytelling going on both visually and written. Taylor does a fabulous job of setting the stage for something super big to happen. I cannot wait for the second issue of this one and that is not something I was expecting to be saying. 4/5 Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin May 9, 2018

    While this issue doesn't make any cutting-edge Wolverine revelations, it does an excellent job of opening up new mysteries in its retrospective look at Logan's New Avengers days. Formidable art and a dense script that focuses on the "Why are these heroes hunting Wolverine?" question foremost in readers' minds turns this into a winner. Our recommendation for Adamantium Agenda #1: Buy it. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 10, 2018

    Adamantium Agenda #1 is an interesting and fun read. It has some fat that could be trimmed, and it doesnt seem to be well connected to the mainline Hunt for Wolverine story. That said, its positives far outweigh the negatives, and I can easily recommend it. Check it out. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Russ Dobler May 9, 2018

    It's not bad, but the narrative would have greatly benefited from a shorter set-up, and the art is a mixed bag. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton May 9, 2018

    Adamantium Agenda#1 has one hell of a cast of characters, and Tom Taylor wastes no time having them go on an epic mission with action, jokes, and the occasional heartfelt moment. The final page takes the miniseries in a completely new direction, but Jesus Aburtov's muddy colors and R.B Silva and Adriano Benedetto's less than expressive, half-assed superhero house art visuals keep this from being a surefire summer blockbuster hit.

    Black Nerd Problems - Jon-Carlos Evans May 12, 2018

    The final reveal of the issue raises the emotional stakes to the storyline, salvaging an otherwise basic "gather the troops. We gotta mission!" introduction. Still, based on the first installment, fans of this incarnation of the Avengers should be in for a fun ride with the cast going bar for bar. Read Full Review

    The chemistry is odd, the story is fairly bland, and it's all around an uninteresting book. Read Full Review

    Marvel might be bringing out all its best guest stars to hunt for Logan, but right now, readers still have very little reason to pick up The Adamantium Agenda. Read Full Review

    Maybe it’s because I miss the early days of Bendis’ New Avengers, but I enjoyed this one. Not much happens, overall, but the dialogue was witty and fun, and I like Tom Taylor’s writing a lot, so... 8.5

    There's not much progression on finding Wolverine in this issue, but I think it was a fun read and I really liked the twist at the end.

    Welcome to the Oblivion Bar where the first round is on me and the pretzels are free! Be warned: like the pickled eggs at the bar, this issue is going to get SPOILED rotten.

    We open better than last week’s issue of Weapons Lost with Daredevil because Taylor makes an effort to explain to the readers why this crew would hunt for Wolverine in the first place. It turns out a couple years ago, Wolverine saved NYC by being the one to hit the switch on a bomb since someone had to do it.... and his healing factor kinda helps too. He saved millions doing that and literally took one for the team, which at the time was Iron Man, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, Spider-Man, and of course Wolverine. We don’t see what happened to him but it’s more

    I am starting to feel that Tom Taylor just really agrees with me. He writes in a tone I like and he is just really at home writing in the Marvel universe. I love his run on All New Wolverine. There is a great twist at the end of this book. One that quickly got my attention and will likely keep me on board till the end. However, I still don't know if I am onboard for the multiple minis to explore the return of one major character. This first issue is about putting the band together and launching them into the story and the story is good. You a get a little action and some good set up for a better issue 2. I will be keeping this in my pull list. So this ends my formal review, but I have some other thoughts on this type of writing from Marvel more

    This issue does a good job identifying the reader's key question - why THIS lineup of Wolverine's Avenger buddies? - and building the answer into a compelling flashback mystery. The script delivers a team dynamic that's strongly reminiscent of Brian Michael Bendis (in a good way), and the visuals are suitably cinematic for a globe-trotting James-Bond-esque thriller. The question of how integral this story is to Logan's return is still open, but the creators have done a good job of making it interesting in its own right.
