    There are also some great character moments between Kitty Pride and the students of the Jean Grey School who have a fun guest appearance in this issue that helps break up the seriousness that ensues on Wolverine's “hunt” for the poachers. Things toward the end of the issue set the tone of something bigger at play and make for an interesting first issue on the forthcoming story. Overall Savage Wolverine continues to be a great place for a good, fun story without the monotony of the current Marvel continuity. Just as Avenging Spider-Man carved out a space in the Marvel Universe for one of it's most popular heroes Savage Wolverine does so for another. In my opinion is one of the best places to read event free, tie in free stories in short bursts that remind us that not all comics have to be heavy and overlapping with deep, high stakes.

    As a fan of the Heroes for Hope concept, I'd love to see that same effort pushed in other directions, get a little press and some publicity in other media prior to orders and make a difference. Let Wolverine be the best at what he does and let's make what he does make a difference. Give comics like this a chance to reach beyond the tight-knit comic reading community. Until that happens, comic books like "Savage Wolverine" #12 will continue to offer equal parts entertainment and frustration. At least with Phil Jimenez on the creative chores, comic books like this favor the entertainment factor. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Gregg Katzman Nov 27, 2013

    Wolverine's new adventure isn't as thrilling as the one with Elektra or as visually stunning as Jock's, but it's attempting a more heartfelt approach to the book. It's always great to see a more humanizing take on James and the motivation here is certainly a great one, but despite that, it hasn't done too much to reel us in a good deal. However, there's enough established here to make me curious about how the next chapter will play out. Read Full Review
