    Kieronn Gille is killing it! Origin II #2 is a must buy. This is going to be one of those books that's going to be talked about for the next ten years. Even if you aren't a Wolverine fan (like me) do yourself a favor and pick up Origin II #2! Read Full Review

    ORIGIN II #2 moves the story along, and while it really doesn't have the same impact as the first issue did, it's still an enjoyable issue. Essex and Creed are a large part of this issue and story, and while the final reveal was a bit much for me, the overall story still has me on board. Kubert and Martin really drive this book home with some fantastic art and great page set-ups. Hopefully, this story continues to be a bit of fun. Overall, I recommend this issue. Read Full Review

    Origin II has some brilliant development points in this issue, and it's future does look very promising, but as for this issue itself it was slightly lacking in certain parts, and if it wasn't for the intensity added by Sabretooth and Mr. Sinister I doubt it's be as good as it is. I still however recommend giving it a read, especially if you read the first issue. Read Full Review

    I'd be lying if I said it I wasn't curious where they were taking this, especially in regards to this new character Clara, but honestly I'm bored. Wolverine is my favorite character, but he hasn't spoken an actual word in Origin II yet. This whole issue was about the villains anyway, and while I like Sinister and Sabretooth, I kind of envy anyone who has the patience to wait for the trade or the will power to skip the series altogether.

    With any luck, this issue was just a slight misstep and will return to form in Book 3. Its nice to see simple Wolverine stories set in the past, before he became perhaps the most overexposed character in all of comics. Read Full Review

    Considering Marvel's recent rededication to OGNs, I'm somewhat surprised they didn't go that route with Origin II. This issue sets up the rest of the series without telling us anything new about the character. It doesn't have the same wow factor that issue one did with the fight between Wolverine and the polar bear. It's not that this is a bad comic but in the course of a five-issue miniseries, this might be the one you mostly forget. Read Full Review

    So far, Origin II isn't saying anything new or interesting about Wolverine or his early years, so what's the point? Read Full Review
