    This series is seriously becoming really good, and it won't be long before it becomes amazing. This issue itself was very fun, and dramatic, and the storyline itself is very mysterious, having my full curiosity. Also with the addition of Nick Fury Jr. to this story it shows signs of also become a brilliant team-up story. I would highly recommend it, and the previous issue, and am seriously looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - thepuremood Apr 10, 2013

    WOLVERINE is an incredibly bizarre and captivating mystery " a bullet that stays in Logan's arm is a head-scratching Chekhov's gun, and the on-going mystery of the controlling voice is thrilling. But it's not just that Cornell is dipping Logan into genre's he's rarely been in, it's what he's revealing about the character. In a great mission statement in the letters column, Cornell spells out quite literally what he's doing, and he's succeeding. These are sides of this character we've never seen before, and every word from his lips is revealing to his long and sordid history. You may think a character with two on-goings and multiple team books would be running out of stories to tell, but WOLVERINE will prove you wrong. Read Full Review

    Wolverine #2 continues the search for answers, and if the appearance of the Watcher means something — I'm hoping it's the start of something huge. For now, the tracks are laid, and the train's picking up steam. Where it goes, Marvel knows. We'll have to wait and see for issue #3. Read Full Review

    So what exactly am I saying? Not sure. I’ve never read Wolverine Max, this title has Alan Davis, Savage Wolverine has the extremely talented Fran Cho and Wolverine & the X-Men is simply awesome. Let your taste or your wallet be your guide. Read Full Review

    Annoying plot and dialogue aside the art and the appearance of The Watcher may have just saved this issue from being a waste to having become the lead in to something interesting. We'll see next issue! (Damn how they were able to sucker me into another one!) Read Full Review

    Not every element in this series is succeeding so far. But I'm willing to give Cornell some time to experiment and find new ways to spice up such a familiar character. It's not an easy task by any means. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Apr 16, 2013

    Much like the debut issue Wolverine #2 has an interesting idea that hasn't been fully realized yet. Though I enjoy the fact that Paul Cornell is giving Wolverine a story that isn't connected to the Avengers or X-Men things could be made much clearer. The random guest appearance by Nick Fury Jr. felt tacked on and did not add to the story. Once we begin to learn more about whatever Wolverine is fighting things will improve. I trust Cornell enough to know he will turn things around quickly and at least we have the wonderful artwork by Alan Davis to enjoy during this time. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Apr 10, 2013

    The only crowning achievement I can give the writing here is a quick interchange between Fury and Wolverine, as they discuss which Beatle Wolvie would be. It's a nice little pop culture moment and it lends to the waning down of the story. It also allows the big reveal on the final page to have a bit more wollop. That said…the reveal has been done so many times it's going to make you roll your eyes. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Vince Ostrowski Apr 11, 2013

    Paul Cornell and Alan Davis are two names to get excited about when it comes to building a comic book creative team. There is something holding this book back though, and it's happening on both ends. Their comic sensibilities match one another's, but it doesn't feel like they have a handle on what they want to do with this character yet. For Cornell, it's a matter of figuring out what makes Wolverine go out and take on a case like this. For Davis, it's building a distinct-looking world around a character that he has such a nice grasp on. This is a team capable of creating a book worth reading, but “Wolverine” volume 5 isn't quite there yet. Check back when the ‘Hunting Season' arc is over. Read Full Review

    Wolverine #2 is a complete letdown in every sense of the word. Wolverine is such a huge character for Marvel that it is baffling that they would let this kind of story release. That just makes it all the more obvious that Wolverine needs a complete shake up and not just more of the same things we've seen from him over the years. Heck, even other writers like Remender and Aaron write Wolverine better in team books than this. If you find yourself at a loss and need your Wolverine fix from somewhere; go back to Savage Wolverine. The solicits for that series in June look much more promising than the solicits for this series in June, which still shows the same story arc on the cover art of #6. Marvel, listen up: Wolverine won't keep selling just because he's Wolverine if you don't shake things up and give us something interesting, dark and visceral. This boring, sappy and snark-less Logan is unappealing. Sincerely: everyone. Read Full Review
