    Given that I've been annoyed at this Shi'ar storyline for the past 5 issues, I'm now almost sad to see it go. Warbird's story is written to give just the right amount of emotional impact, and still manages to contribute to the Avengers Vs. X-Men storyline as Gladiator and his forces finally tackle the Phoenix Five, and we return to the Jean Grey School for the coda. If the past few issues had put this title on shaky ground, this one cements it right back at the top of my pull list. Read Full Review

    Ive said it before and Ill say it again. The X-Books are some of the best written mainstream superhero books on the marked. A few years ago it was the Superman Family of books, and as great as they were with their World of New Krypton storylines, the current run of X-Books just might be better (AvX aside).

    By far the best issue of Wolverine and the X-Men in quite some time. Great character dynamics and lots of tugging on the heart-strings Read Full Review

    That said, when your only critique is "could have been more risky with the art," it means you've got yourself a pretty darn good comic. Bradshaw's storytelling chops and expressive characters draw you into Aaron's surprisingly human story about an alien warrior who secretly longs for some beauty in her life. The irony, of course, is that Warbird's story might be some of the most beautiful work this title has seen yet. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jul 16, 2012

    "Wolverine & the X-Men" #13 is about as far removed as a comic book can be from the expected content as Wolverine is nowhere to be found in this issue and the X-Men (save the Phoenix Five) are only barely present and certainly not the focus. Furthermore this "AvX" crossover doesn't offer much to advance the grander narrative save to rearrange a few pieces on the board. That said, this is still a comic that offers nice character beats and impressive art. The pricepoint might incense some folks expecting more X-Men, but if you're simply looking for a decent read, you can find it here. Read Full Review

    This was a fun issue and one of the better AVX tie-ins. From Marvel Comics. Read Full Review

    Overall, its a nice read especially if you're starting to like Warbird. If not, then you could stick around still for the further developing war between the united mutants in Utopia against the Shiar. Read Full Review

    Major Spoilers - Jimmy Jul 13, 2012

    On the "Next Issue" preview it seems like things in Wolverine and the X-Men may be settling down, though I'm not really sure why it's accompanied by a "Save the Date" advertisement for a date that's about three weeks past. Of all the issues of Wolverine and the X-Men so far, this was one of them, and since that's about all I can say about it the issue gets 2 stars. The story was well-written but quite clich, and the art left no lasting impact on me at all. Overall a below-average issue, and if next month's doesn't impress me I'll probably have to drop this title. Read Full Review
