    Comic Booked - Kelly Cassidy May 10, 2013

    Can you tell this was one of my favorite reads of the week? To engage me, the story needs to draw me in or needs to be fun or needs to be something unique; then the art needs to complement that on top of everything else. That is my personal criteria for an engaging book. And this issue succeeded in that. It also made me not mind the new Nick Fury a little (still not thrilled but I think the correct writer could do something with him – and that seems to have happened here). I recommend giving this newWolverine series a look-see as I think you'll like what you find within its pages. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 8, 2013

    Alan Davis is his usual, reliable self in this issue. While the coloring in this book can be a bit dull and even monochrome at times, Davis' line-work and general storytelling flair are never impacted. Davis delivers a few key action sequences in trademark style, but he also manages to keep the book humming along even in the dialogue-driven sequences. Cornell's slow burn approach demands an artist of Davis' talent and range. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - David Brooke May 8, 2013

    Though I wasn't blown away by the first two issues by any means, I was still compelled to keep reading and I think that's largely because Cornell was doing something new and interesting. This issue reveals his grander scheme, that is if he does get to continue past the next issue, and I'm on board for whatever he has for me. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin May 14, 2013

    While the first two issues of the series weren't bad they never were able to fully connect the dots for an engaging story. Wolverine #3 is where everything comes together for this series. Paul Cornell has done a fine job capturing the veteran superhero voice of Wolverine with a great use of the supporting cast and Nick Fury Jr.'s involvement to highlight this. The story with the mysterious villains plot is also able to pick up and truly gets going in interesting ways. All of this is brought to life by the great artwork from Alan Davis, who brings his usual A-list talent to this series. With how things went down in this issue I believe that Cornell is setting us up for something special on Wolverine. Knowing Cornell's past work that is something no Marvel fan will want to miss out on. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - thepuremood May 9, 2013

    WOLVERINE is a great comic book. It's honestly doing the unthinkable – finding something new to say about Logan, without feeling like a gimmicky plead for attention. On an even simpler level, it's fun! It's one of the most exciting Marvel books out there, and I actually think it hits a wonderful balance between a well-known and very talented and intelligent creators voice with that of a corporate owned superhero's. Some fans may wish the book felt more like Cornell, while others may wish it felt more like Wolverine, but it's the balance between the two that makes the thing so special for me. Read Full Review

    Chuck's Comic Of The Day - Chuck May 13, 2013

    Next issue promises to resolve this storyline, which I'm all for. It seems wrong to complain about death in a Wolverine story, but I generally prefer that if characters die, they should (in some form or another) have it coming. Read Full Review

    Blue Raven Comics - Jack Reid May 10, 2013

    Like I said, this issue was much better than its predecessors and has me intrigued about the series' future. I'd give this issue a 7.5/10 mostly for the improved writing by Cornell. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - kanchilr1 May 13, 2013

    Hopefully Wolverine is going somewhere as new things were just announced for the title. The series artists and writers need to start upping their game in these issues, but they are slowly getting better. This issue was big turning point in terms of quality, let’s keep fingers crossed for these talented creators to find their voice on the title. Read Full Review

    I'm still not sold on there being another Wolverine series but I'm feeling a lot better about this one compared to say Savage Wolverine. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt May 13, 2013

    It's not the worst Wolverine comic you'll ever read by a long stretch, and Cornell's vision seems strong enough that the series as a whole will go somewhere interesting, given the time - but when the character is available in so many other places, it's a pity "Wolverine" #3 didn't elicit stronger feelings.

    Imagination Centre - John McCubbin Sep 5, 2013

    This is probably the worst issue in the series so far, but it did have it's moments, and was fun at times. It was however the attempt at humour that damaged the quality of this issue, and I seriously hope that this doesn't affect the story as a whole, and that it pays of. It did however continue the mystery perfectly, and still shows potential, although Cornell will seriously have to deliver in the next issue to make up for his mistakes in this one. I would recommend this issue to anyone who has already been getting the series, but to new readers I'd recommend waiting, and seeing if the conclusion in the next issue is good before getting this one.
