    Arcade goes from gleeful to angry in Murderworld: Wolverine. It had to happen eventually. And its easy to invest in the moment. Arcade is the only character thats factored substantially into every issue, and Ive found him more compelling than the point-of-view characters at several points. So when he went from fun to furious it grabbed me. I would never have expected to say this when the Murderworld series began, but the chance of Arcades plan getting upset is a far better cliffhanger than whether a contestant will survive. I cant wait to find out whats going to happen to this attention craving maniac. Read Full Review

    Murderworld emphasizes style over substance, but it provides enough of a rooting interest to keep readers hooked through the overly familiar approach of Arcade. Read Full Review

    The Fandom Post - Chris Beveridge Feb 1, 2023

    It looks like the next issue focuses on Moon Knight but again, it's not really Moon Knight so there's not too much of a draw there because of that. If we were following “name” characters facing off against other versions of heroes it'd be one thing, but here we get mostly nobodies from what we can tell at this point, though the few nods to their past highlight how some villains view the various heroes that they face in interesting ways. The book flows well and hits its stride pretty quickly even without having anyone to really connect with as it leans into a standard survival horror kind of approach. It looks great and has a solid script but it just lacks that connection for me. It may work better if I'd known that there were two issues before this but it still works well enough, as long as you realize it's not a Wolverine story. Read Full Review

    This one was good enough I suppose. You dont really get a sense of why you should care about the main characters in it that much since they wanted to go into the game. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Jan 25, 2023

    Murderworld: Wolverine #1 somehow manages to make this series more violent. Different characters raise the hackles up more than others due to the possibilities of their powers and how they can use them to kill. With Wolverine, there are countless examples of what he can do, and he is terrifying. Read Full Review

    I take it for the promise to see two Laura and gabby. So I begun trusting the voice was a Logan like character. No it’s leap-frog. O.K. ! So I had a hard time and find the start a little bumpy and not reader friendly. It’s because it’s not a 1 at all but a part 3. Now I will have to check for * even in my comics, like in a damn tv commercial ? Seriously ? That said the tension and the voice of leap frog help me advance even if I’m not fan of a sadistic assassination game comics. The wolverines arrive and are stupid … They only said bub. It’s even nit funny. And they let survivor. It’s not clear if the survival rate are just a tab or a control made by arcades’ tech team. The end fell a little like « Deus ex machina » beca more

    Still not bad in and of itself; still not good enough to excuse the crass marketing gimmick.
