    Yes, the thought of Wolverine going to Hell and slicing and dicing everyone there is a little lame if you think about it, but Jason Aaron made this issue a lot of fun and set up a bunch of great side-stories that will keep this run going strong, at least for the first storyline. And again, this is one of the few times you'll find a back-up story almost as strong as the main one. I highly recommend picking this book up. This is the best place to start if you're into Wolverine. Yes, I gave a Wolverine book a perfect score... Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Sep 2, 2010

    This is a really, really solid debut issue for this new series. Jason Aaron clearly has a fantastic take on the complexity of Wolverine and is using that to his advantage in a really trippy way with this story. It is extremely predictable, though, despite the craziness of the concept, which is a bit grating. This is definitely the best issue I've seen from Renato Guedes, though there a lot of small issues with the art that start to add up in retrospect. Allinall, though, it's a fantastic issue that definitely has me pumped about the future of this title. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Sep 5, 2010

    Wolverine #1 was a blast to read especially when you add in the fantastic Silver Samurai back-up. Aaron showed he has a great handle on Wolverines character and does a great job setting up the story. And along with his artists, Guedes for the main story and Latour for the back-up, this is a great looking issue. If you are a Wolverine fan I recommend picking this issue up even with the one problem it had. This story has all the makings of being a crazy fun time and with Aaron on writing duties I have faith that is what he is going to deliver. Read Full Review

    IGN - Dan Phillips Sep 1, 2010

    Simply put, the brilliant back-up aside, I expected more from Aaron's first issue on this new series. I look for any new issue to grab my attention and demand I take notice right off the bat. Wolverine #1 failed to do that for the most part. The good news is its clear the story is just getting going; once it does, I have faith in Aaron's ability to reel me in hook, line and sinker.

    Comic Vine - Zack Freeman Sep 1, 2010

    I'm of two minds about this storyline. On the one hand, it's sizing up to be an interesting companion piece to Wolverine Origins; putting Logan face-to-face with all the ghosts from his past in a very real way. On the other hand, I can't help thinking that Wolverine's going back into Marvel's hell after the X-Men Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Colin Andersen Sep 2, 2010

    There are definitely some areas of Wolverine Goes to Hell that need improvement, but I have faith in Jason Aaron and his storytelling skills that he will improve greatly upon them. It make lack some originality, but Wolverine makes up for it in fun. It isnt the most accessible Wolverine story ever and the art in the main story isnt the most appealing, but I think anyone can appreciate this new series and want to give this Wolverine series a chance.

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Tony Rakittke Sep 4, 2010

    A strangely subdued issue, but one full of potential that promises to deliver one of the most surreal adventures of Wolverine's career. This would be a good time to get on board, as Aaron's ready to take new and loyal readers on one hell of a ride. Read Full Review

    cxPulp - Walt Kneeland Sep 2, 2010

    If you're a die-hard Wolverine fan, or otherwise willing to jump in with a likely investment of a dozen or more issues by the time all's said and done, this probably won't be a bad point to jump in. For the casual fan, not quite so bright an outlook. I bought this to give it a try--it's a fresh start, right? New number-one? Though I'm actually kinda interested in where this story is going, I don't see coming back for the next issue. Read Full Review
