    Initial issues of mini series are tough, especially when the series only has three issues left. However, I felt this issue put forth a good story to keep me coming back for more and that's all you can ask for from an opening issue. Truthfully, I couldn't put down the book and I am impatiently waiting for more. What else could you be looking for? Read Full Review

    Marvel Universe vs. Wolverine is disappointingly familiar in many ways, but it also marks significant improvements in both scripting and art quality. The most we can do is hope that Maberry does have a few surprises in store as he delves more deeply into this violent universe. Read Full Review

    Now, Im not entirely sure if this is a companion piece or a retelling. In fact, there are a few minor inconsistencies between the two series that bothered me. For example, there were some characters whose heads appeared as Franks trophies in the original book that were shown to be dispatched by Wolverine here. This might just be a minor mistake or it could be evidence that the two series are separate entities. The conflict is certainly the same, as are the events that lead up to the conflict, but there is no indication that Frank is involved. Where the original series started with Franks war already well in progress, this issue focuses on the development of the crisis, and Wolverines realization that things have changed forever.

    As a comic, this falls squarely into the "okay" territory. It's not bad, but it's not as good as I'd like it to be. If this was the only Wolverine book coming out this month, it would be worth picking up to get your fix. However, you can get a better Wolverine story in his own book and better zombie-like survivor tales elsewhere. Read Full Review
