    X-Men fans rejoice! HUNT FOR WOLVERINE: MYSTERY IN MADRIPOOR #1 is the perfect testament to the mutant team and their connection to Wolverine. Zub, Silas, and Sobreiro are a creative dream-team that can easily make MYSTERY IN MADRIPOOR the best HUNT FOR WOLVERINE miniseries on the shelves. Read Full Review

    A good opening salvo with a killer Logan vs. Psylocke scene to open it up. Read Full Review

    The hunt is on and it will be interesting to see where Zub and the team take it next. I am looking forward to seeing more glimpses into the past and previously unseen moments between the lead characters and Logan as well as more of the Femme Fatales. Bring on issue #2! Read Full Review

    Of all the Hunt for Wolverine mini-series this one is good, not great. I like seeing the ladiestogether and I think once you get to the actual story it starts to pick up. And the art is great. I can recommend this issue and I look forward to the next one. Read Full Review

    This isn't quite the noir story that Marvel advertised it would be, but it's still a fun start to what should be a grittier X-Men adventure. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison May 26, 2018

    Hunt for Wolverine: Mystery in Madripoor #1 is a decent read. Its focus on character and motivation makes the story feel more important, even if the main plot is just a random digression into past X-Men villains. This is likely the weakest of the Hunt for Wolverine #1s, but I can still recommend it, though its not required reading. Feel free to check it out though. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Jim Werner May 28, 2018

    The nostalgia and the fact that we have an all-female cast are the main selling points for this series going forward. That may not be enough though for customers already jaded by this series or those expecting more Wolverine. Read Full Review

    Lazy LookalikesWhen the X-Men are ambushed by Viper and her hired telepath, they are assailed by an all-female unit of mercenaries. For some reason, the two of the members of Viper's team are dead ringers for Storm and Domino.Is that the super villain thing now"to hire henchmen that look exactly like your foes in the hopes they get confused and psi-blast themselves? Without any narrative rhyme or reason for the Domino and Storm clones yet to to be realized (if there is any), the restaurant sequence feels clichd and rushed. Read Full Review

    "Hunt For Wolverine Mystery In Madripoor" #1 is a slightly enjoyable but inconsequential next chapter in the "Hunt for Wolverine" event storyline. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin May 23, 2018

    While the creators of Mystery In Madripoor resisted the temptation to turn this all-female book into a T&A delivery vehicle, the dull plot, bland characterization, and poor art they deliver instead are questionably-valuable alternatives. This series might hit some interesting points in the future, but that's not the way we're betting after this introduction. Our recommendation for Mystery In Madripoor #1: An emphatic 'Skip It.'
