    HUNT FOR WOLVERINE THE CLAWS OF A KILLER #1 has an action packed and gripping story from Mariko Takami, and the art and coloring by Butch Guice and Dan Brown help convey the tone. Though the characterization falls a little flat, it's overall a great start to a story arc. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 17, 2018

    Claws of a Killer #1 is a rough n ready book uniting three of Logans greatest enemies on a quest to make Wolverine dead again. The characters have good and believable chemistry, the premise is sound, and the art of Butch Guice, Cam Smith, and Dan Brown looks fantastic. This one gets a recommendation. Give it a read.

    A winning story, rock-solid characterization, and naturalistic visuals make Claws of a Killer #1 a real delight. While it's not a perfect comic, it's a very strong one both on its own and as part of the bigger Hunt for Wolverine plot. Our recommendation: Buy It for sure. Read Full Review

    Overall this comic fits in with the rest in this series. If your really interested in all the mysteries surrounding Logan's return or if you are a fan of any of these villains then this comic is worth a read. If not then you could easily give it a miss. For myself, there are enough questions raised in this issue and the art is strong enough to raise the comic above being a money grab for Marvel. I'll be looking forward to issue #2 to read if Daken manages to escape the Zombies of Maybelle. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jon-Carlos Evans May 20, 2018

    Overall, the mood of the issue is consistent throughout, sprinkling enough mystery, uncertainty, and emotional vitriol to build a story arc that will hopefully rise beyond its' by the numbers zombie plot reveal. Read Full Review

    The fourth Hunt for Wolverine miniseries is possibly the most perplexing of the bunch. This issue begins with a drag, with neither the art nor the dialogue seeming very interesting. But without realizing, at some point smack in the middle of the book, things magically change. Read Full Review

    The book starts off good with the main cast. It's only the first chapter, but Tamaki already seems to have a better voice for Yuriko & Creed than Pak has in 22 chapters of Weapon X. They sound like themselves, rather than the "hip" frat kids Pak seemed to be going for. Yuriko has called Sabretooth & Daken to discuss Wolverine. Daken is the wild card of the team it appears. He doesn't want to be there, doesn't trust Yuriko, and even releases his pheromones to threaten her on the off chance she's plotting to kill him. When they decide to work together, they drive to a ghost town. Daken insists Wolverine ins't there, because he doesn't smell him. Creed & Yuriko agree to look around since they're already there. Daken wanders off on his own, whi more

    elcome 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.

    So, this was a wee-bit confusing of a start for an issue BUT I think it is intentional. The story opens in a small town in Arizona of about 343 “where everybody knows your name..” but these folks aren’t glad that you came. And, their troubles aren’t all away. We are led to believe that Wolverine is working for some undercover killteam called Soteira.

    It looks like Wolverine broke into an electric company, killed the worker, placed something green ( that kind of looked like an Infinity Gem) in some type of reactor, and set it off killing e more

    Good fun but propably irrelevant. The story is well told with a dash of X Files mystery, great art by Jackson Guice. A good showcase for Sabretooth, Lady Deathstrike and Daken, with zombies.

    This dense introduction to the villainous Logan-hunting party delivers some welcome attention to the Soteira Group, the bigger bads who have possession of Logan right now. While the nasty characterization of the protagonists is refreshing, it clashes with the "dirty-faced angels" treatment they're getting in other titles (Daken in X-Men Blue and Deathstrike and Sabretooth in Weapon X). The darker take shown here isn't deep enough to override the goodguy treatment; this just muddies the waters. This issue also has some visual problems: the marvelously real faces are great in individual panels but the progression from picture to picture is disjointed. This only gets worse as the story moves away from talking and toward fighting.
