    The Beat - Joe Grunenwald Aug 29, 2018

    This is a solid entry point, nicely tying up the threads from the stories that came before it and kicking off the proper return of Wolverine in an interesting way. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Charles Martin Aug 29, 2018

    Although the sheer volume of recap material slows this comic down, it's an admirably complete snapshot of the diverse points the Hunt for Wolverine has already hit. It sets the stage for the full-on Return by adding a promising antagonist to the mix, and it's a generally fun read. We give it a strong "Buy It" recommendation - especially if you skipped the miniserieses and need to catch up. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Aug 29, 2018

    And that's where the comic really succeeds. What on paper feels like a cash-in has moments that really stand out. There's some awe inspiring moments that remind you how amazing the X-Men can be. There's also plenty of humor between the trio of Tony, Kitty, and Matt Murdock that wants to see these worlds come together more often. The introduction of a new villain too feels ominous and something that's actually important. By comics' end, my jaded self going into it felt like a kid again reading the X-Men for the first time.

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Aug 29, 2018

    Like a great detective story, this issue brings together all of the competing storylines from the Hunt for Wolverine series and not only gives them all context in a bigger story, but introduces a new threat that seems really formidable. Read Full Review

    While it's a slow burn, 'Dead End' quickly picks up the pace and delivers some answers while adding a new layer of intrigue. How it all comes together is what makes me want to pick up the next issue. Read Full Review

    Black Nerd Problems - Jon-Carlos Evans Sep 2, 2018

    Since returning in last November's Marvel Legacyone-shot, Logan has been seen in various "Where is Wolverine?" bookends and even travelling with an Infinity Stone. At this point, X-fans are hoping from a dignified return and reunion with his mutant brethren, but thus far it feels anticlimactic. The seemingly endless build-up and the great stories being told with X-23, Gabby, and Old Man Logan almost make the return of OG Wolverine more laborious than joyous. Read Full Review

    Bleeding Cool - Joshua Davison Aug 29, 2018

    Hunt for Wolverine: Dead Ends #1 doesnt exactly supply any significant revelations, but it is an enjoyable book in its own right. The $4.99 price tag gives me some reticence towards enthusiastically recommending it, but, if youre already enthralled in the Hunt for Wolverine narrative, I can recommend it well enough. If you sat out the previous four miniseries, well, funnily enough this one issue sums up what they can tell you about Logans whereabouts quite succinctly, and its not a bad place to hop on before Return of Wolverine this September.

  • 6.0 - Charlie Ridgely Aug 29, 2018

    Hunt for Wolverine: Dead Ends is a surprisingly enjoyable comic, given the disappointment of 3 of the 4 mini-series leading into it. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Matthew Sibley Aug 30, 2018

    Dead Ends' vagueness about what's to come is an ineffective story hook, as the build-up and teasing seems never-ending. Read Full Review
