    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Feb 28, 2019

    Wolverine Infinity Watch #1 is a wonderful set-up for an intriguing story. In reality, this should have been the book to bring Wolverine back into the Marvel Universe proper. Duggan succeeds here where Charles Soule failed because he's not trying to add anything new to the character, but put him in a new situation, with stakes and characters that Logan has rarely had to deal with. Adding Loki to the mix is an inspired choice as well, as the two characters will play well off each other. Andy MacDonald's art is detailed and expressive and it will be great to see what he can do now that Duggan has gotten all the exposition out of the way. This is a pitch-perfect first issue.

    AIPT - David Brooke Feb 20, 2019

    A good issue that adequately sets up a new mission for Logan, pairs him with an odd character and sets in motion a story that should feel shiny and new given the circumstances. Does it offer answers? Not yet, but at this point, I'm excited to know something will come from this 5 issue miniseries. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Feb 20, 2019

    The issue is an interesting start and attempts to put together a story years in the making. The task isn't enviable and beyond difficult to make it clear and entertaining for old and new readers. Wolverine: Infinity Watch #1 is a perfectly fine first issue but it's one that only diehard fans along for the ride will truly enjoy. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Branden Feb 23, 2019

    The Return of Wolverine saga continues only this time in a more satisfying matter. This issue does it's best to sort out the entire mess that was created in the first place, while it stinks of not being the plan initially, I'm still OK with it because for now its just some comic booky fun. What can i say I'm here for Wolverine fighting with a ‘time bat'. Read Full Review

    With Return of Wolverine wrapped, Ol' Canucklehead is officially back, but Gerry Duggan seems to not really know what to do with him. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Joe Grunenwald Feb 20, 2019

    The bait-and-switch of Logan returning to the school was a frustrating way to start the issue, and it didn't get better as things progressed. As I said earlier, I think continuity nerds will probably love this, but it did nothing for me Read Full Review
