    Comic Vine - Sara 'Babs' Lima Nov 23, 2011

    This is definitely a fun issue, and is turning out to be a really fun series. Even though this is Wolverine's team and Wolverine's new school; Jason Aaron still draws the focus to Bobby Drake who seriously steps up to the plate in this issue. All the young X-Men get face time in this book, and I particularly enjoyed the scenes featuring Broo, the alien student. He's just adorable. Fantastic work by Bachalo who's style compliments this issue incredibly well and maintains this upbeat theme throughout the issue. I am definitely looking forward to the upcoming adventures of this team. Read Full Review

    Overall, not to much character building in issue #2 other then giving Bobby Drake a nice big shine in the issue. Wolverine and The X-Men #2 served as a straight up brawl from beginning to end. I am completely digging Jason Aaron's work on the series so far and look forward to issue #3. Read Full Review

    Jumping on point?: I guess you could jump on here and not be too horribly confused, but it also wouldn't kill you to get issue #1 which is probably still on shelves and is also available digitally. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Nov 28, 2011

    Two issues in and with more bad guys than any year of stories would need, it's clear I'm going to be reading Wolverine and the X-Men for as long as this creative team is on board to produce it. There's tons of imagination, even more ambition, and so much potential for this cast of characters. Even when this book makes some mistakes, they're never enough to derail the sheer joy that comes off every page. The next issue can't come soon enough. Read Full Review

    IGN - Joey Esposito Nov 23, 2011

    Wolverine and the X-Men #2 continues the bold new adventures of Wolverine's dysfunctional X-team, and reaffirms that coming out of Schism, this is the book to watch. Read Full Review

    A Comic Book Blog - Victor Kutsenok Nov 28, 2011

    Issue two is here and the action is hot and heavy. From the first page to the last, we are treated with non-stop action. From the awesome battles with the Frankenstein battalion to the great Iceman throwdown, each page was filled with nice displays of mutants battling for their lives. Oh wait. They would have been nice displays but because of Bachalo's terrible, confusing art, they really were just a nasty mess on the page. Read Full Review

    Crave Online - Blair Marnell Nov 24, 2011

    It's only the artwork that keeps me from giving Wolverine and the X-Men #2 a higher mark. This is one of the few X-Men books that's worthy of carrying on the tradtition of Chris Claremont and Grant Morrison. And with a more conventional artist, it could be unstoppable. Read Full Review

    This series is such great fun. An original take on the characters by both the writer and the artist makes me anticipating issue three!! Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Nov 28, 2011

    So far, the only real problem is that the attack here does beg the question of whether Wolverine's decision to move away from Utopia has provided any substantial improvement in their chances of survival (and it'd be good to see that addressed), but as a free-standing story, Aaron and Bachalo knows what they're doing and it's undeniably great fun.

    Aside from that, the issue begins and ends at the exact same point - the school on the edge of destruction. Not good at all. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Dec 4, 2011

    Overall, Im still waiting for Aaron to cut loose, and for Rachel to take on more of a visible role. Hopefully, these things will be coming. I still feel that this age of X-stories can go down as the Aaron (maybe Aaron/Gillen) Age, but the jury is now back out on whether Wolverine and The X-Men is going to be the title that solidifies this assertion.

    Comics Bulletin - Kitt Di Camillo Dec 1, 2011

    Overall,Wolverine And The X-Men #2 supplies the action that was left out of Issue #1 and little else. Some fans will love the return to all-out conflict, but the result is a shabbily structured second entry for the series. The ending provides a solid setup for next issue, though, leaving a neat cliffhanger to carry on with. Read Full Review
