    Wolverine and the X-Men #27AU is so far the best crossover book outside of the core Age of Ultron series. Be sure to check this one out. Read Full Review

    WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN #27AU does everything I want a tie-in comic to do. It gives us a nice breather from the exciting and climactic events of the ‘big summer book', allowing us to get a glimpse inside the central characters' heads and see what's really going on. It's an essential and unforgettable chapter in the story of Invisible Woman, and with wonderful art (across multiple generations of comics, no less) it has the high level of craft I expected from the talent involved. Here's to more Matt Kindt at the House of Ideas! Read Full Review

    Still, it's a tie-in that adds a bit about motivation and the thought process going on within these characters. Read Full Review

    If you've been avoiding the tie-in's to Age of Ultron I'd say give this one a shot, it's probably the best so far. Read Full Review

    While I don't mind more crossover for a major event I prefer for them to at least make sense. In Fantastic Four #5AU we at least found how the Fantastic Four took a break from their trip and got wrapped up in this event. In Avengers Assemble we found out what happened to Natasha. In this book? It had some great premes with The Brood mention but in my opinion it fell flat for how it truly fit into the Age of Ultron. This is probably my least favorite Age of Ultron tie in to date. Read Full Review

    Still, it's fair to say that this comic is better than it should've been, and that alone makes me eager to see what Kindt might do with the Marvel Universe when given a bit more room to craft a story of his own devising. It also makes me want to see more interaction between Wolverine and the Invisible Woman, which is something I never really expected. On those levels, it can only be called a success. If, however, you're looking for something about the "Wolverine and the X-Men" kids or an essential component of "Age of Ultron," this isn't the comic for you. That doesn't mean it isn't worth the time, but make sure you know what you're buying when you go into it. Read Full Review

    This issue might have proven enjoyable, if not essential, but it just doesn't have much to offer fans of either Age of Ultron or Wolverine and the X-Men. Read Full Review

    “Wolverine and the X-Men” #27AU is one of the most intriguing “Age of Ultron” tie-ins thus far. Unfortunately, that bar isn't very high to begin with. Like most of these tie-in issues, the impact on the overall story is minimal at best, and hardly worth your $3.99. Read Full Review

    Don't let this issue of Wolverine and the X-Men put you off the main series " it has nothing to do with it, and is nowhere near the level of quality. I've read some poor tie-ins for the Age of Ultron event, like last week's Ultron #1AU issue, but only this one has reached wall-headbutting levels of stupidity. Thankfully, the artwork is great, but that's nowhere near enough to save this issue from being unneeded, and just silly. Read Full Review
