    Joe Madureira’s are is phenomenal. The pencils are grotesque at some points, at others merely creepy. There’s a certain air to Savage Wolverine, a vibe of violence and decay, something surreal and disturbing. Madureira nails that perfectly. The Arbitrators are vicious but somehow regal, Elektra is severe and yet still feminine, and when the berserker rage hits, it’s some of the best Wolverine art in recent memory. I can only hope that Wells and Madureira are in it for the long haul. Read Full Review

    This series has singlehandedly restored my faith in the higher-ups at Marvel. It may not have been the best seller on the stands. And it may not have been as long as the hardcore Joe Mad fans wanted it to be, but it successfully brought this lapsed reader back to the House of Ideas. Now the trick is to keep me here. Ill follow Madureira to the pages of Inhumans and Im currently enjoying Charles Soules Thunderbolts, but Im going to be giving Savage Wolverine a rest after seeing the previews for the next few issues. Heres to hoping that we get more creators like these two writing books that appeal to each and every comic fan out there. I know Ill be picking up whatever they put out from this point forward.

    Look, the reason I slapped my hard earned dollars down on the (metaphorical) counter for these issues was Joe freaking Madureira. Without a doubt, Savage Wolverine has been some of his best work ever. It's stunning. This issue is the weakest of the three, relying heavily on silhouettes and smokey environments, but it still looks amazing. Not as amazing as the two issues that came before, but amazing nonetheless. The panel where Wolverine finally loses it and gives into his animal side alone is worth the price of admission. Madureira delivers the goods in Savage Wolverine and I, for one, couldn't be happier.

    While Wolverine's story takes a very familiar path and Elektra doesn't get all that much focus, it's still a thoroughly entertaining finale and puts a surprisingly emotional spotlight on the Kingpin. The visuals may not be quite as crisp as the last issue, but Joe Madureira and Peter Steigerwald still create some astonishing visuals that are loaded with ferocity and make the read a real treat for your eyes. Complaints aside, this was still very satisfying and definitely an arc worth checking out if you're looking for a solid Wolverine or Kingpin story. Read Full Review

    Ultimately, if you're in this for the visuals, you won't be disappointed, but what you see is pretty much all you get. Read Full Review
