    New readers might find things a bit dense in this first issue. A basic knowledge of the Marvel Universe would probably help immensely, but it could be enjoyed without it. Read Full Review

    Visually, this issue is obviously a downgrade in the absence of Davis. Mirco Pierfederici's art is fine, just not nearly as cinematic or detailed as Davis's work. None of the numerous action scenes really pop with the sort of energy the book used to display. That said, Andres Mossa's colors do their part to lend depth and vibrancy to the pencils.

    WOLVERINE #5 is a bit of a let down after four issues that had me more excited for the characters' solo series than I'd been in years. Cornell continues to experiment in characterization and technique, and he has to be given credit for bringing a stubbornly stagnant character into a new direction. Unfortunately, the artwork just doesn't gel with the story in the way Davis' did, with mediocre staging and poor acting. I'm confident that WOLVERINE will continue to be one of the strongest of the characters many series, but this issue was rather middling. Read Full Review

    This was a step up from the last couple of issues, but still far from the level that the series should be at by now. I did however still enjoy the issue, and there was some very interesting parts about it, leaving with a fabulous cliffhanger. It also had some interesting action, all be it not much, as well as adding more mystery, whilst continuing to be dramatic. It also continues the story that has been building from issue 1, whilst also being a great start to a new story, and I look forward to seeing how it's developed. I would recommend caution when thinking about buying this, as unless you're already collecting the series I'd be wary, as although it'll appeal to some, it may not appeal to you. Read Full Review
