    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Dec 30, 2020

    So about those two wolves... Wolverine #8 is a cleverly crafted 36-page setup piece that will not feed the standard '90s nostalgia wolf inside a lot of Wolverine fans (of a certain age lol) in the way that you think it will. This isn't some claws slashing, guns blazing mindless throwdown action piece, but a cleverly crafted thriller of a story that adroitly uses multiple past storylines, new ideas AND nostalgia to set up a smart, well thought out modern Wolverine action mystery that is always conscious of the past, as well as the new status quo and that's the wolf this story feeds. Read it twice. Read Full Review

    There are battles" but not gutsy, balls to the wall, savagery. Readers will get some black-ops, covert action with some minor cameo action sequences that will be just enough to wet your whistle. However, what we do get is fun, quick, and intriguing. Read Full Review

    The Super Powered Fancast - Deron Generally Dec 30, 2020

    Bogdanovic and Kubert deliver some beautiful art in this issue. While the story is subdued, the art does a great job of contrasting between the big action of the flashbacks and the quiet of the present. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Dec 30, 2020

    Wolverine #8 starts on a huge high but kind of goes down from there. That said, it's not a bad book, far from it. Percy can't write a bad Wolverine book, and this one is still pretty good, even if the prologue overshadows everything else. The story it sets up seems pretty interesting, and it will be nice to see what comes next. The art team does a fantastic job, with Wilson's coloring being a standout. As usual, Percy and company knock it out of the park. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Dec 30, 2020

    For an anniversary issue, Wolverine #8 feels pretty average as far as issues. It's a good issue and a good starting point for readers but this isn't one that really celebrates anything. It seems to do that by just telling a solid and entertaining story. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Dec 30, 2020

    Wolverine #8 does enough to honor the character's legacy and remind us why we love him. It also sets up a new story arc that ties into different aspects of the character's past, which tends to be the most interesting way to use the character. This issue does have a lot more buildup than one might expect, especially for a milestone issue, which squanders the extra pages in a sense, but it should get folks excited for what is to come.

    But Why Tho? - CJ Dec 30, 2020

    Wolverine #8 is the perfect jumping-on point for readers old and new, reaching back into the clawed hero's past to set up a new story. If you're looking to get into the new era of X-Men comics, I highly suggest starting with this issue. Read Full Review

    Comics: The Gathering - Ryan.L Dec 30, 2020

    Overall this anniversary issue sees the Wolverine step into somewhat of a Bond theme. Will we get "I'm Howlett, James Howlett." Or would that be too far? Eitherway it's a fun direction to take the book and I'm all for it. Read Full Review

    Wolverine #8 transitions away from the "Sword of X" nonsense and back towards the more gritty tone established in the initial few issues. Read Full Review
