    I recommend buying it. It's not blazing new frontiers, but like last issue it's another classic kind of Wolverine tale, and sadly they don't tell them like they used to, except here. Also like last issue, I find this format a much better way to delve into Wolverine's past than trying to scientifically catalogue, categorize and chronologize his whole life from birth to now.

    Wolverine is the best there is at what he does. One of those is being able to appear in several different comics. In this new story arc, Richard Isanove takes us back to 1933 with a pre-Adamantium Logan. Under the All-New Marvel Now! banner, you can easily jump right into this issue and not have to worry about anything else. Isanove's art is spectacular and makes this a very good looking comic. If you're looking for a different sort of Wolverine story in a different environment, you should check this out. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - James Connolly Jan 10, 2014

    To sum it up, Savage Wolverine #14.Now Wrath #1 isn't a ground breaking new story, however it is a good start to an interesting story that stands alone from the piles and piles of X-books that Marvel puts out every week. The writing here is good, but the painted style of the art steal the show and are definitely worth the price of admission. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - David Henderson Jan 10, 2014

    Ultimately, even though there was nothing here we hadn't seen before plot-wise, Isanvoe still proves that he can write and draw a fun Wolverine story. The dialogue is spot-on and creates an atmosphere that engrosses the reader in the noir stylines of the writing. Combining that with atmospheric art that serves to engross the reader in the time period of the story and you have a story that definitely focuses on atmosphere and it pays off. Just because it doesn't bring anything all that new to the table doesn't mean that this issue wasn't a blast to read and I can only hope Isanvoe develops the story to new and interesting places.

    I’m glad Savage Wolverine is around. It’s a superb playground that allows talented creators to give their ideas on the enigma that is Wolverine. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Jan 8, 2014

    For a first time writer, Isanove has a sense of what works in a Wolverine story but that's only because it's worked a hundred times before. At the very least, Isanove's art is a great fit for both the tone of the story and the character. Hopefully, as his arc continues, we'll get to see a bit more reasoning behind Isanove's storytelling choices. Why is this setting an important moment to Logan? What will this story reveal about him? He's a character that, despite the many stories about his past, is still cloaked in mystery. There's a lot of room to grow. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Sam Roche Jan 9, 2014

    Eh, not really. It's so predictable and such a throwaway story that I can't excuse the poor writing. I will say that the art is beautiful and gives the story most of the emotion that was lacking from the unfortunate writing. I appreciate creators trying to branch out, but I really think this creator was brought into this world to draw, not to write. Read Full Review

    Regardless, the glimmer of the original premise still shines brightly. Here's hoping that, with his set-up out of the way, Isanove can make good his promises of greatness next month. Read Full Review

    I'm usually a pretty big fan of the prohibition era and with this story having Wolverine there, I'm on board. A family using bootlegging to make a living in tough times isn't something I've seen utilized in stories, but I thought it made complete sense. For a wolverine comic, this one is focused more on the story than action, which is perfectly fine for me. I like most of the art in the book, but there is something about how faces look that holds me back from loving it. The cover to this one is pretty cool with the yellow costume shadow and the blood in the snow.
