•  Looks like Sabretooth is ready for his final showdown with Logan and he sure picked a meaningful venue.
•  Didn't we just see a fight in a shopping mall that seriously scarred Logan?
•  Oh, right. That whole "messing with Wolverine" thing.

    This is the very last issue of WOLVERINE. Through all the ups and downs of the series, it is a sad day for fans of his everywhere. Once the DEATH OF WOLVERINE mini series is over, it will be very sad to go to my pull list month after month, with no Wolverine title in it. Read Full Review

    Wolverine #12 suffers from many of the same flaws this series has from the beginning. But it delivers in the areas that count most, offering readers one last, satisfying clash between Wolverine and Sabretooth before The Death of Wolverine. But with no apparent ties to that forthcoming mini-series, casual readers can just as easily skip this storyline. Read Full Review

    WOLVERINE #12 is an okay issue. It doesn't bring any new material to the dynamic between Wolverine and Sabretooth and, as you can see above, I have a lot of gripes with it, but it still delivers an alright insight into James Howlett, an amusing course of events, and the visual ride isn't bad. It's a bummer the back-up stories don't add any significant substance to the events in this conclusion and it'll by no means go down as one of the best Wolverine/Sabretooth stories, but I think relatively new readers will appreciate the character beats and find themselves interested enough to see what comes next. Here's hoping DEATH OF WOLVERINE is more compelling! Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Joel Raivid Aug 28, 2014

    After the fight sequence I wasnt a fan of how the issue finished, it seemed very safe and very happy. I dont know if this is because I was expecting there to be mayhem leading up to the Death of Wolverine storyline, but either way I felt very underwhelmed. Read Full Review

    Unleash The Fanboy - John McCubbin Aug 29, 2014

    Paul Cornell's Wolverine run ends in an very disappointing manor, feeling rushed, and overlooked to accommodate the upcoming Death of Wolverine series. Cause of this I can't recommend this, though if you've been following the series this far it'd be pointless to miss the end. Read Full Review

    So Marvel, way to bring us one of the most boring and inconsistent Wolverine tales in quite some time right before you kill him off. I can't just blame Cornell for this as there are editors and others in the mix as well. I'm not exactly sure what you guys were thinking but you're better than this. All of you are. The one thing that we can be glad about though is that the ‘Death of Wolverine' story line isn't going to be by Cornell so we can still have hope that he dies memorably. Read Full Review

    Combined with two forgettable extra stories, this comic doesn't even give Death its due. Read Full Review

    PopMatters - Jack Fisher Sep 2, 2014

    The potential was definitely there for Wolverine #12. The setting and the emotions were all in place. But it all went to waste. It wasn't mishandled or destroyed either. It was just flat out ignored. It's like lottery winner spending millions of dollars on their dream home and opting to live in the dog house. There was no emotional weight to the struggle and little impact from its aftermath. This was set up as the most important chapter of the Wolverine/Sabretooth rivalry to date. In the end it barely qualified as a footnote. Read Full Review
