    Jason Aaron is kicking off a brand new story arc on all cylinders and he plans on holding nothing back. We are getting so much going on in this issue that I'm afraid to take a breath for fear of missing some of the action. And action is the word of the day. Lots of awesome Wolverine vs ninja action. Lots of Wolverine vs Sabretooth action. Lots of Ninja vs Yakuza action. Read Full Review

    To be honest, sometimes pacing in comics can be too frenetic, with the ideas being tossed at such a manic rate that none of them get a chance to develop. Yet Wolverine #300 is a comic that is both light and satisfying, a fight book that embraces the lunacy inherent in a 180-year-old clawed mutant who happens to fight shapeshifters and be a Japanese culture enthusiast. As far as celebrations go, you're going to be hard-pressed to find something more fun than this. Read Full Review

    This is the beginning of the end of Jason Aaron's run on Wolverine. He has over 40 issues under his belt and he will still be writing Wolverine stories to a certain extent with Wolverine and the X-Men title, but he will be missed on this book in particular. Yes, the book cost $4.99 but is it worth it? Oh hell yeah!!! Read Full Review

    I'm not a regular reader of "Wolverine." I have limited income and there are way too many other books out there. Wolverine's literally been there, done that and claimed more than a few t-shirts in the process. I've always been of the notion that I can be selective with how I consume Wolverine appearances as there are literally hundreds to choose from (hence the "300" on the cover). With each issue of Aaron's stint on this title, however, my resolve to keep this book at arm's length continues to dissolve. This one may have been the last straw. Read Full Review

    So my final point it that, after 300 issues, Wolverine hasn't changed a bit - he's still a fierce fighter with an attitude. If you like that kind of thing, here it is. Read Full Review

    Whether or not you buy into the renumbered nonsense, this issue is actually a very good anniversary issue. It's the beginning of an arc and it has plenty of action and moves around a wide array of characters to keep the issue lively. The book is a solid read for your money and if you have even a passing interest in Wolverine I recommend checking out this issue. You may be surprised at how much you enjoy it. Read Full Review

    Jason Aaron is leaving after this arc and I for one was saddened to hear this news. His work on Wolverine has really revitalized the character. This issue definitely indicates that hell be going out in epic proportion. So far it has all the makings of a classic adventure. Read Full Review

    All and all I am finally back to reading one of my favorites characters and I am digging Aaron's story line involving the Kingpin's The Red Hand sect and Yakuza war. Can't hardly wait for Wolverine 301. Read Full Review

    So this was an entertaining diversion. It's comfort food, but much more like a burger from Five Guys than McDonalds (certainly as pricey, which may deter the casual reader). It has macabre humor, solid characterization, dynamic art, and a fast pace and drive towards a perceivable goal. There's nice nods to continuity (Wolverine mentions being an Avenger, and Sabretooth cracks on Wolverine for being a headmaster now) without dragging the narrative down, and even the illusion of change: Yukio is crippled, Amiko is older, there's a new Silver Samurai, etc. Aaron does a good job of keeping the ball rolling, and while this isn't necessary at this point it's at least classic Wolverine done right.

    I had a lot of fun with this issue because of the loyalty to the overarching Wolverine history that's present. If you'd like to take a classic Wolverine story involving Japan, this issue feels like it - that's a very good thing. Read Full Review

    X-Man's Comic Blog - x-man75 Jan 14, 2012

    Eh, this was a good comic and all, but it was ANOTHER “Wolverine goes to Japan and fights Ninjas/the Hand/the Yakuza” story. I've said it before, but it bears repeating... I've NEVER been a fan of Wolvie's Japanese exploits. I hate Amiko, don't particularly care for Yukio, and could care less that the Silver Samurai is dead. I mean yeah, the Wolverine/Sabretooth throwdown was fun, as were all of Sabretooth's scene's actually, and the story was pretty straightforward, but still, it was a Wolvie in Japan storyline... Eh, so far it's probably the best Wolvie in Japan story I've read, but that's not exactly saying much, now is it? Read Full Review

    IGN - Poet Mase Jan 11, 2012

    If there's a character that fits Quentin Tarantino's character, Beatrix Kiddo, it's probably Wolverine, and, for the most part, I enjoyed Jason Aaron's ability to walk the line between camp and impactful moments of seriousness. I wasn't terribly impressed with the introduction of Silver Samurai's successor, but there were plenty of other bells and whistles here for me to come away a happy reader. Read Full Review

    While not the travesty that The Incredible Hulk is, Wolverine #300 isn’t really a fitting anniversary issue for the iconic character. Read Full Review
