THE WORST IS BACK!
Wolverine has never been one to back down from a fight - not even a combined assault from Lady Deathstrike, Sabretooth and Doctor Cornelius - but the Flower Cartel might have enlisted his worst and greatest foe: Logan himself.

    AIPT - Ryan Pagella Mar 25, 2020

    Benjamin Percy and Adam Kubert have nailed down Wolverine's personality. Together they can tell a tale of Wolverine that has been told many times before, yet they keep it fresh. I am excited to see where the story goes with the Pale Girl. I am also here for more naked Wolverine. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - CJ Jan 1, 1970

    Wolverine #2is a compelling look into the mind of one of the greatest X-Men and features a creative team that is firing on all cylinders. Percy and Kubert have a deep understanding of this character and use that to craft a story that plays into his greatest fears and give him a new enemy. This is slowly shaping up to be one of the best titles from the Dawn of X and I can't wait to see what future issues bring. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 26, 2020

    Wolverine #2 continues Percy's great work on this book. He understands Wolverine very well and is building a very cool story with this one. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Mar 25, 2020

    Adam Kubert delivers some impressive visuals. The art is dynamic and filled with energy. I like the contrast between the quieter, character focused moments and the action beats like the fight in Wolverine's mind. Kubert does a great job of contrasting Logan and Bannister's lives as well and I was impressed with the finale and how detailed it was. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Mar 26, 2020

    Wolverine #2 drags Logan even further down into darkness as Percy balances the hardcore violence of the title with mystery and strong emotional interactions between characters and commentary on the current mutant status quo played out on a canvas of absolutely top quality art. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Mar 24, 2020

    Percy and Kubert create a comic that's wildly dynamic and beautifully paced with haunting qualities that will keep you on the edge of your seat. Sure, this issue definitely feels familiar. However, the plot still feels substantial and ultimately drew me into the story. Read Full Review

    The Daily Fandom - Alex Smith-Petersen Mar 29, 2020

    With two issues in the can on the first solo of the Dawn Of X era, I can confidently say I'm a big fan of where this is going. Tying Wolverine into the other X-books helps reassure the bigger picture is staying intact, while letting Logan off the hinges to do what he does best on his own time, more or less. The action is gripping and the story is perfect for a nice new slice of lore, without being over-complicated or intricate. In short, this is thus far exactly what I would like to be seen in a Wolverine solo and I hope you guys dig it too. Read Full Review

    Impulse Gamer - Tim Chuma Mar 25, 2020

    An interesting enough story and character design in this one and it does have the potential to develop into a good series. Well worth picking up if you are a fan of Wolverine and like the retro aesthetic. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Mar 25, 2020

    Overall this is a great follow-up to that explosive first issue. This series is definitely set to be one of the better new x-series. Even if you’re not a huge Wolverine fan I still highly recommend picking this one up. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Apr 6, 2020

    Benjamin Percy and Adam Kubert deliver a strong follow up to the debut issue with Wolverine #2. The mystery around the Flower Cartel's Pollen deepens and pushes Wolverine to go back to working solo to defeat this threat to the entire world. The way things are developed, especially with the mysterious lead villain, provide a lot of intrigue as to where Percy and Kubert will go with this story next. Read Full Review

    411Mania - Jeremy Thomas Mar 25, 2020

    There's enough good here to offset the problems without difficulty, making this only a bit of a step down from last month's stellar kick-off issue. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Christian Hoffer Mar 25, 2020

    It feels like a very "color by the numbers" Wolverine story, which is a waste of Adam Kubert artwork. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Mar 24, 2020

    While Percy has done some strong work with Logan and company over in X-Force, his solo run with the Ol' Canucklehead is leaving something to be desired. Some of it is because Adam Kubert isn't firing on all cylinders, whether it be due to wonky layout choices or simply a time crunch - but given that this is Logan's first ongoing series in years, you'd think there'd be a more concrete and thoughtful direction going on. Given the pedigree of the team involved, I wish I could say Wolverine is indispensable reading, but this will appeal to diehard fans only. Read Full Review
