    I'm really enjoying this mini-series thus far. It's exciting to see Quentin be the star of this book because he's an incredibly cool character, although at times he's annoying and whiny, like most teenagers. Although the Construct World art lacked consistency, I still loved it, but I wasn't too into the real world art and I felt like the two should have been switched around. I recommend this series and this issue. Read Full Review

    Still, with three more installments to go, there's plenty of time for the stakes to be raised. Even if that doesn't happen, this is still an immediately entertaining read with fantastic art, placing a spotlight on a little-explored character. Read Full Review

    The problem, as mentioned, is that the series still comes up a bit hollow in the end. Quire's construct world is fairly bland, and only in one specific case does any threat he generates hit the characters on a deeper emotional level. Two issues in, this story still seems like it would have been better suited for an extended one-shot issue. Once again, there needs to be a stronger hook to carry the story for three more chapters.

    Most teenagers like Quentin Quire play videogames, but most teenagers arent powerful psychic mutants who can create whole worlds in peoples minds filled with characters, settings & stories. Hes about to find out what happens when the players of your own mind games start to break free, especially when that player is non other than Wolverine. Written by Brian Wood (DMZ) & illustrated by Roland Boschi (Punisher : In The Blood). From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    Eh. I didn't hate or love this comic. I had absolutely no feelings towards it. It just was. The Wolverine/VR parts did nothing for me, the parts with Quire were okay, and the fact that NOBODY has seen OR sensed Wolverine's berserker-fueled body wandering around the school campus(for at last a full day!) just seems wrong to me. If Wolvie's body is fueled by his berserker persona, shouldn't it be running amok or something? There just seem to be a lot of holes here, not enough to totally ruin this mini, but enough to be a nuisance to me. Read Full Review
