    That's actually two consecutive issues that were really good. I definitely enjoyed this issue. Once again, we have a nice little adventure with Wolverine as the star. There is a good set-up that leads into a nice plot buildup. Read Full Review

    Wolverine seems like the kind of title that is tough to get into. The character is all over the place in the Marvel Universe but Aaron seems to really keep him contained in his own little world really well without ignoring all the other appearances he makes. This book actually is a good jumping on point as far as I can tell. You might not find Kung-Fu to be your thing but there are still enough Wolverine moments in here to keep the hardcore Wolverine fans pleased I would think. I definitely recommend picking this book up. Read Full Review

    Overall, this is a fun issue and a really great start to Wolverine's new adventures. The story is very fluid with solid pacing, and the art is absolutely gorgeous. Both Wolverine fans as well as new readers will appreciate this title; and if you aren't yet reading Wolverine, this may be a good place for you to start. Read Full Review

    This is exactly the sort of story this series needed after the way the series has played out over the summer. And with the addition of another kung fu legend in issue #18, this arc only promises to get better. Read Full Review
