    Steve McNivens art is gorgeous. He perfectly captures the gritty, bold style and tone of this issue and takes the art to some truly dramatic and beautiful places. Read Full Review

    This issue looks great and offers answers which allow for a satisfying enough conclusion even if they are sour answers that are hard to swallow. Possibly the most enjoyable element of this issue is the fact that it's finally over and we can move on. Read Full Review

    Alls well that ends...Finally. This last issue is a beautifully rendered comic that ultimately fails to impress in the story department which netted us what we always knew we were going to get... a reincarnated Wolverine in the 616. I just am not convinced we needed 5 issues to do it. Read Full Review

    A fine finish to a series that had big ambitions but just didn't get there in the end. The moments where the creative team shine leaves the reader wondering why that wasn't the standard from jump. It has action. It has turns. It hits certain notes. But ultimately it leaves the reader feeling like Marvel must have better plans for what used to be one of its franchise players. Wolverine is the best there is at what he does. Unfortunately, in this issue, what he does just isn't that impressive. Read Full Review

    Overall, I sound like I'm bagging on this issue a lot, but it's not bad at its attempts to wrap up what are a bunch of ideas thrown at a wall, that just didn't stick or resonate with anyone. The art is a huge step up from what we've previously gotten, but the series is a disappointment as a whole, especially for a return of one of Marvel's bigger characters. Hopefully this series becomes just a minor footnote in the history of the character, with hot claws in the rear mirror never to be mentioned again. Read Full Review

    The series offers nothing new to say about Wolverine and no evolution, with Wolverine triumphantly exclaiming that he is the exact same character that he was before this overlong story started. Which leaves readers to wonder why they bothered. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 20, 2019

    Return Of Wolverine #5 brings this mini series to a close and it ends the way it began- disappointing. Read Full Review

    Whether it's a failure of planning or a failure of imagination, Return of Wolverine feels like the most artificial method possible to get the desired result, and as a result feels like one of the more disappointing events Marvel has released in some time. The Ol' Canucklehead might be back in fighting form, but he sure has killed plenty of readers' wallets to get there. Read Full Review
