    While a tad unbelievable in parts with the fight between Daken and the X-Men, the issue holds up fine. I'm still enjoying this series very much. The suspense as to whether or not Daken will coat his claws with metal of the Muramasa blade is great. I honestly don't know how this story will end and that has me excited. Read Full Review

    In short, this is an arc that has proven woefully short on both story content and logic. Why did Cyclops abandon all common sense and strategy when choosing to confront Daken? Why didn't he dispatch X-Force, a team who seems tailor-made to confront threats like this? That could have made for an interesting story, with Wolverine forced to battle the same squad he was intended to lead. Instead, Way has cooked up a story that seems predominantly concerned with setting the stage for Dark Wolverine and much less so with furthering the story of its title character. I'm all for kicking Daken out of this book and letting Wolverine get back to basics. Read Full Review
