    Overall, Wolverine: Patch #1 is a story which feels like a an espionage thriller right in the middle of the X-Men Universe. The story by Hama is scintillating. The art by the creative team is gorgeous. Altogether, one of the best books of 2022 already. Read Full Review

    Comic Watch - Ross Hutchinson Mar 21, 2022

    Wolverine: Patch #1 is classic Hama Logan, well-executed by the entire team involved. The introduction of multiple players early on makes it intriguing from the get-go and Hama doesn't show his whole hand at once with a healthy balance of mystery and intrigue combined with some wild violent moments that have defined Logan's solo runs in the past. The balance of old and new from Hama is more than enough to make one want to come back for more. Read Full Review

    Wolverine: Patch #1 is not going to be an industry-changing story, but it does provide a nostalgic tale. Fans of Hama's original run on Wolverine will discover enough throwbacks to draw them in immediately, while fans of Wolverine in general should be entertained enough with this first issue to want to come back for more.

    This was enjoyable stuff, but then I remember the original era and so have a nostalgic connection to it. All the things I was looking for were there. Hama's writing was excellent, Di Vito and Underwood's art both top notch and reminiscent of that era's feel and style. I'm not so sure if people without that connection would necessarily have enjoyed this as much, with the lack of any relevance to the modern Marvel universe and current characters. It's a fun diversion for modern fans, but little else. For me, a welcome walk down memory lane. Read Full Review

    Well worth it if you are a fan of Wolverine and want to see him in an adventure off by his own and doing reckless things like jumping out of planes without a parachute with no back up to help him if things go wrong. Read Full Review

    Fans of the Patch era of Wolverine will obviously love seeing Logan in the suit and tie, but there's nothing too remarkable here. It's a solidly crafted adventure with some intriguing mysterious foes with good action. Pick this up if you're in the mood for good action and a Wolverine solo reading experience. Read Full Review

    An underwhelming start to this miniseries. Have to take some time to figure out if I'll give the second issue a shot. Read Full Review

    But Why Tho? - Charles Hartford Jan 1, 1970

    Wolverine: Patch #1 delivers a fine story that is buoyed up by nostalgia and a strong visual presentation. If the tale can build on the groundwork laid out here, it could grow into something truly great. Read Full Review

    Wolverine: Patch #1 isn't bad in any way but it also doesn't stand out. You read it and kind of wonder of what the point is other than adding some nostalgia. So far, it doesn't give us anything new. There's not some interesting exploration of the time or character. It's just a standalone story so far with a “classic” feel of it all. This is one for fans looking for a bit of nostalgia. Read Full Review

    It's bound to be more effective for readers who fondly remember Wolverine issues centered on this era as there's not much to be appreciated beyond the callbacks and competent presentation. Read Full Review
