    It's a grand return to some great classic concepts in the X-Men Universe and they are clearly doing things right by feeding us our nostalgia in such a great format! Read Full Review

    Ramon Perez finishes out this arc in strong fashion. You won't find a more vibrant, energetic style in an X-book right now. Perez nicely captures that blend between the absurd and the tragic in this story. Other than a handful of cases where Wolverine's face appears too scrunched up, there are really no complaints to be had about the visuals in this arc. Hopefully this won't be the last we see of Perez on the series. Read Full Review

    Another arc has come to a close, and for the most part, Savage Learning has been another excellent addition to the Wolverine and the X-Men storyline. It's an intense character piece, unlike any of the arcs so far, thanks to its removal of most of the Jean Grey School clutter, and it's done wonders for characters like Eyeboy, Sprite and Genesis whohaven'thad the time in the spotlight that characters like Quentin Quire or Idie have had. This is an enjoyable, solid conclusion to the arc. Read Full Review

    Ramon Perez has managed to expertly channel all of the ridiculous, crazy ideas of Jason Aaron, visualize them, and then draw them all for us to enjoy. His talent for making a bizarre scene look completely normal should not be under-rated. Not every comic can pull off having robots from the future, cavemen, a gang from the old west and a gaggle of adolescent mutants all on the same page in a setting like the Savage Land, but Perez pulls it off and not only that, he makes it look pretty damn cool too.

    In the end not only did the students grow up to an extent, but Wolverine did as well as he confronted his brother. He chose not to fight while his brother only wanted to fight like the dog he is, so to speak. He felt that he deserved everything Wolverine had, but he did nothing to earn it and his approach came off childish which is a comparison Aaron did well. Aaron did right by ending this story in a way that leaves room for arching stories between the Hellfire Club and Wolverine's relationship with the student which is now very weak. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Hugo Robberts Lariviere Apr 30, 2013

    While this arc had its shares of problem, Aaron manages to give us some good character work for the most part as well as a fitting conclusion while Prez and the duo of colorists gives us a great book to look at. While this may be a bit stronger than the last issues of this book, I have no more desire to read a series that cannot maintain a certain modicum of consistent quality. Dropped. Read Full Review

    If you've been reading Wolverine and the X-Men, nothing in this issue will surprise you. If you haven't been reading, I urge you to consider it if you're looking for a fun read. There are so many great comics with intricate plots being produced now, which is a great thing. However, I fear that some may forget that comics are first and foremost an entertainment medium. Although this book doesn't offer the complexity of, say, Hickman's Avengers, I haven't read very many issues that I didn't find entertaining. Read Full Review

    Marvel Disassembled - thepuremood Apr 24, 2013

    WOLVERINE AND THE X-MEN still can't stick the landing or balance it's many different elements as much as I want it to, but this issue was certainly a step in the right direction. It has the series' trademark lowbrow humour while still letting the characters breathe and grow, but the unsatisfying ending leaves a bad taste in your mouth. That being said, it's still a very fun and entertaining book, and Ramon Perez continues to draw the heck out of it. You can think of it as going through an awkward phase " after a burst of creativity, a muddled period of AvX tie-ins, it now has to meander around and find itself again " and if you have the patience, the wait may be worth it.
