    If there's a tinge of the negative in Wolverine #62, it's only that Jason Aaron isn't the new regular writer for the book. He displays a fundamental understanding of the characters and really tells a great opening part to his arc. Read Full Review

    All in all, this issue provides a glimpse into the twisted and self-centered world that Raven has been in for the past century or more. She performs acts of terrorism and mass murder; She commits out-right personal murder, and she weaves a web of deceit boxing Wolverine into a corner hell have to fight his way out of. Wolverine is going to have a very tough time getting Mystique, especially in nine hours Read Full Review

    Add Jason Aaron to the list of X-writers returning these characters to what they do best as individuals and ensembles. Garney's artwork serves the story well depicting world hopping action and stark violence in clean story-telling style. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Feb 13, 2008

    I'm not sold on this yet. I don't see them killing Mystique, but I don't see a point to this story if Logan doesn't, so I'm torn on that aspect of whether this story will accomplish anything. The flashbacks, while, again, neat backstory for him andMystique, serve little purpose, at this point, and only distracted me. However, I'd call this a wait and see type of story. It could be good or it could end up terrible. We'll know after three more issues. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Feb 15, 2008

    Wolverine #62 was a pedestrian read. If you are a fan of Wolverine and enjoy the direction that Marvel has taken his character over the past several years then you will definitely enjoy this issue. If you dig action themed comic books as a form of mindless entertainment then you will also probably like this issue. However, if you expect a bit more from your comic books and require quality character work and dialogue then I don't think Wolverine is the title for you. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - J. Montes Feb 16, 2008

    Garney's art does not disappoint. But as good as it is, it lacks the refinement that Bill Reinhold gave it when they were together on Amazing Spider-Man. His Wolverine and Mystique, however, are excellent. Jason Aaron brings his trademark “natives speaking in languages we don't understand” routine. He does this a lot in Scalped and he does it here, too. We get the gist of what the Mexicans and Afghanis are saying, but it's never fully translated. As I said, his script is lazy and there are logic problems, but I have hopes that he'll find his footing and turn things around. Read Full Review
