    Ending with a gripping epilogue set at least a century in the future, the mysteries keep piling on in the NOW! volume of the most popular X-man. WOLVERINE, to me, is everything that line-wide relaunches like The New 52 or Marvel NOW! promise – something completely new and different, a take on a decades old character we actually haven't seen countless times before. It's rare the companies find the courage to not just return to the well, but ‘Hunting Season' really was a thrillingly original Wolverine story, that still stay true to the characters' mythos. Davis may not be returning to the next arc, but with Cornell telling one of the freshest stories currently being published by the Big Two, I await it with breathless anticipation. Read Full Review

    But with plenty of satisfying action and a slate of consistently eye-popping Alan Davis pages to cap off this story, that anticlimax is a small concern. This series only looks to become more engrossing in the months ahead. Read Full Review

    Although a step above last issue, this issue was still slightly poor, and the lack of an ending, along with slight confusion was the key reason for that. There was however some brilliant action, and some amazing dialogue, with even a more lightheated sequence to open the issue, which was nice. The series does however still show potential, as although this issue, as well as last issue were far from the level expected, the series still has some life to it. I would only recommend this issue to anyone that's been following so far, as otherwise I'd recommend waiting till next issue, and seeing if the next story's any better. Read Full Review

    Some foreshadowing is done in the background here as the Drowning Wolverine arc is teased. It is a shame that the plot did not progress slightly faster in this issue, but hopefully this next arc will prove more interesting. Decompressed storytelling seems to be plaguing many of Marvel's current books. A look into what exactly is going on inthe editorial facet of the medium would prove more than interesting with a title like this. The theme of mortality is also introduced here and it seems it willplay big into this troubled book going forward. Read Full Review
