    Shoot The Breeze Comics - Jake Putnam May 9, 2018

    This issue will whet or appetite of what we have been wanting for a very long time, and at the same time leave you begging for more. I loved every single minute of reading this comic book. The artwork was wonderful and helped to tell the story well. The dialogue was magnificent and built the characters nicely. If you haven't picked it up yet, run to your LCS and pick it and the second issue up as soon as possible. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Jason Segarra Apr 25, 2018

    Yeah, totally. The artwork is great, and the story is fun. There are some wonky choices here and there, but nobody is perfect. This should do the job of getting you hyped for the Hunt for Wolverine. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Apr 25, 2018

    I'm not sure what I was expecting as far as a story but this definitely wasn't it. There are things in here that actually had me surprised and wanting to get the answers to come. This comic is supposed to do exactly that and in that way it succeeds and then some. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Gustavo S. Lodi Apr 30, 2018

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Apr 26, 2018

    We leave this issue with way more questions than when we came in. The good news is these mysteries are interesting and Logan seems to be in good hands. The bad news is that you'll have to be a little more alert and aware in making sure you don't miss any chapters in this story. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Apr 25, 2018

    So, Hunt for Wolverine #1 was solidly good. It doesnt add much new to the story, but it retells what we already know in an entertaining manner. Charles Soule seems passionate about this. The artistic team do top notch work. Even at a frustrating $5.99 US, I can recommend it. Check it out. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Apr 25, 2018

    The Hunt for Wolverine presents terrific visuals throughout and some genuinely touching moments in the A story. The B story, though, charts out a roadmap for a vast crossover event that's already looking bloated and unsatisfying. By itself, this issue is a decent read and a very pretty one, but the continuation of the story across four different miniseries looks promising for only the most indulgent and well-heeled Wolverine superfans.

    Newsarama - David Pepose Apr 25, 2018

    Thanks to his high concepts and working with artists like Marquez and Siquiera, The Hunt for Wolverine will likely appeal to readers just on sheer execution, even if we're only clawing at the surface how far this concept could truly go. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Johnny "The Machine" Hughes Apr 26, 2018

    If I am honest, I much prefer the idea of a story within a story. For me, Wolvie's return would have been better served by hinting and tipping through his own book. Here, given that we know where we end up,this book isless of a hunt and more of a steps retraced. Read Full Review

    The Lost Lighthouse - thelostlighthouse Apr 26, 2018

    Hunt for Wolverineis worth picking up if you are a big Logan fan and want to know where he has been and what is coming next. The art is great, and the characterisations and dialogue from Soule are good too. At times it reads a lot like an advert for what is coming next, which is pretty typical for comics, but the fact that what is next is 4 separate series, it seems a little far and unfriendly to the wallet. Even so, I think this is a good issue and worth your time. Read Full Review

    Doom Rocket - Don Alsafi Apr 27, 2018

    With a cautiously measured approach, Marvel could have brought Wolverine back to his former heights, and let readers gradually remember why they liked the cantankerous mutant in the first place. Instead, they're immediately launched into a regiment of excess. All Wolverine books, all the time. Read Full Review

    If you're in it for the craft, then the work that was done on "Secrets and Lives" may be worth the inflated cost that comes from being bundled with "Hunter's Pryde." Maybe. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Branden Murray May 7, 2018

    Hunt for Wolverine #1 is ultimately a cash grab that might have been the best issue of X-Men Gold I've read in a long time but far from quenched my appetite for the real Logan, who I'm not sure is even featured in this book at all. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Apr 25, 2018

    Hunt for Wolverine #1 will disappoint anyone hoping for a clear, concise look at Wolverine's return to life. This story is less concerned with providing answers than it is setting up a pointlessly large crossover event. The lead story at least features some strong artwork and a few memorable flashback scenes, but neither is enough to justify the high cover price. Nor does this issue build much enthusiasm for what's to come for the character. Read Full Review

    Would be a fine first issue of a mini, but it's an ad for SEVERAL minis. I enjoyed this, but I'm out.

    It's a good story by Soule and it's got mystery but this isn't what i had in mind. Logan was barely there. The art was nice and complimented the stories.
    Ultimately 6 dollars for a tease is straight gangsta! I'm sad to say i can't buy 12 more issues to follow the story. Love you Logan but i can't afford this.

    I bought this to see whether I'd pick up the mini-series. I didn't really get into it. There just didn't feel like there was much to it. It needed some extra depth or character work or something.

    I'd give it a slightly higher rating if it was normal price, but for an expensive issue, it was disappointing.

    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.

    Well Well Well. The Hunt for Red October; I mean Wolverine. Not too bad at all. I was actually pretty shocked how much I liked it. Not because of the writer or art team because Charlie Soule is killing it on Vader and Daredevil right now, but because these quick tie in books are normally there to drum up extra sales and spark interest in big events to come but normally aren’t too good. Well, you got me again Marvel! And this one was great!

    We open this story with Reavers coming to crack open the adamantium statue of Wolverine, which if you remem more

    This issue dumped a lot of information on us in the most action-packed way possible. Honestly, I didn't need the original Logan back. I was happy with the ending and if anything I would have been fine giving Old Man Logan a revived healing factor and letting him continue as the younger Logan had been. Maybe with a little extra grey, but we are here now and this is how it is.

    Soule keeps the pace well and uses all the players well as well. This issue sets everything up so this is more about communicating where everyone is before the great hunt for Wolverine (Though to be honest I think Laura will always be my Wolverine). There is a new Status Qup coming for the X-Men and something tells me when this is all said and done. There wi more

    Where's Armor? Laura? Amiko? Kurt? They don't get an invite to Logan's "real" funeral, but Doop and Firestar do? And while the series at least explains Jean's nonsensical appearance in Legacy #1, it doesn't change the fact her presence has no impact whatsoever.

    The effort to make this a Marvel-wide thing is done hamfistedly at best. Did Kitty honestly not have someone within the X-sphere who would have been a better investigator than Daredevil?

    All-in-all it's just a $6 ad for the FOUR upcoming miniseries.
