    Despite the fact that this conclusion didn't have too much of an impact on me, the art is one thing to recognize. From beginning to end of this story arc, it has been very consistent, especially for the fact that Frank Cho is both the writer and the artist. I'd point out how it is cool to see Wolverine go to hell and back fighting through the savages and see him lose about half of his costume in the process. Read Full Review

    But as I've said in past reviews, as much fun as this arc has been able to offer at times, The Savage Wolverine is still outclassed by even zanier books like Hawkeye and Wolverine and the X-Men. And those books never sacrifice story for visceral thrills either. Hopefully the next arc from Zeb Wells and Joe Mad will be able to reinvigorate this series. Read Full Review

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Sep 6, 2013

    After the marvellous issues that we've seen in this series, the opening story finished on a low, being the worst in the series so far. The Hulk was very badly used, and his presence was far from what I'd hoped it would be. It however wasn't the worst thing about this issue, as the ending was terrible, and made the story feel unfinished, which was disappointing. I would only recommend this to anyone who's been following the series so far, but otherwise I'd recommend leaving it alone, as even with the other amazing issues, it will disappoint.

    In a word, this issue was an anticlimactic ending to a pretty good arc in a pretty good series. Read Full Review

    Savage Wolverine #5 was, sadly, a weak ending to the story Frank Cho has been telling. His art is strong, but that's all there is in this comic. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere May 30, 2013

    Great art cannot save a book from having a rushed and anticlimactic conclusion. As much as the action is good-looking, it serves close to no purpose if it does not add anything to the plot, which Cho seems to have forgotten. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke May 29, 2013

    It's easy to blame Cho for the issues this series has seeing as he's the writer and artist, but maybe it's a case of an editor not doing any editing? When he pitched this somebody should have said, "how about we do this in 3?" But I'm sure the editors thought Cho's art would carry things nicely. Unfortunately they don't. Read Full Review
