    Brilliant art and strong characterization make this an issue worth picking up. Read Full Review

    Can the art carry the book? In this case, it's a toss up.The story itself seems to be a lacking of any progression. We still don't know much and there is only one chapter left in the arc. The lack of dialogue doesn't help move the story along and the the narration that is there is just a vague as the story. With one chapter left, I get the feeling that the final act could be rushed and crowed with an explanation, but I have no doubt the book will be just as stunning as the first two chapters.

    The narrative isn't doing much to impress at the moment, but ultimately, Jock's artwork is what makes this issue shine and is so good that it easily warrants a bump to 4-stars. The weight of answering all of our questions is on the next issue's shoulders, so here's hoping it's delivered at a good pace instead of just dumping all of the details at once. Also, it wouldn't really be SAVAGE WOLVERINE without some kick-ass Wolverine action, so let's hope it delivers more on that end, too! Read Full Review

    IGN - Benjamin Bailey Oct 23, 2013

    Unfortunately, the great art is dragged down by a sparse, clunky story. Things move at a snails pace most of the time, which means we get things like a 10 second countdown that takes up five page. The dialogue is empty and shallow, certainly not carrying enough weight for how little there is. At this price point, the only reason to buy this book is if you absolutely adore Jock's art. The story isn't worth the price of admission, that's for sure. I love Jock, so I bought it, but I was definitely hoping for more. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Oct 25, 2013

    If anything “Savage Wolverine” is an experiment that fails as much as it succeeds, but when it succeeds, it reminds us why we love artists like Jock. There is a strong visual sensibility here that proves that artists have just as much to do with the storytelling process as writers do. It also shows us that you still do need a snappy or, at minimum, an interesting script to make a fully compelling read. Jock doesn't show the ability to deliver that yet, but does turn in a visually magnificent book that any fan of his should check out. In a comics landscape where Marvel seems more than willing to take risks with storytelling, “Savage Wolverine” is a better message of goodwill and a recognition of great artistic talent than it is a great book.
