    While I think there are a lot of better Wolverine standalone stories, any one of them would require multiple entries. The Amazing Immortal Man and Other Bloody Tales does a great job of pulling together many one-offs that stand on their own. This isn't an in-depth arc, but a collection that embodies the type of tales you can expect to read when picking up a Wolverine comic. If you prefer complete beginning to end storylines, this isn't the book for you. However, If you've never really delved into any of his stuff, this might be a good place to start to see if you find any type of connection with the character. Read Full Review

    Overall I recommend this one-shot for any Wolverine fan looking for a quick fix. The stories are all solid, the different art styles keep things fresh, and David Lapham shows that he has a nice grasp on both Wolverine and the effect he has on people. Read Full Review

    While this isn't quite the waste of time that Giant Size Hulk was, the stories don't justify the extra attention. Again, we're talking about something above and beyond the normal Wolverine series, so it ought to be something really worth the time and money. I realize it's just $4, but when I go to the shop each week and run up a total that's over $100... those books add up. Ultimately the bizarre writing and poor art really made this one a letdown. Check out Aaron's work with Wolverine and Mystique or just wait until Whedon's Giant Size Astonishing hits. I promise that will be worth the money, and I'm certain it will have the proper dosage of our clawed friend. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt May 19, 2008

    What really hurts this book rating is the price tag -- at $4 for a bunch of ultimately inconsequential Wolverine shorts, it needed to really justify that expense, and doesn't really do so. In fairness, there is an audience for this sort of material -- the casual Wolverine fan who simply wants a quick read -- but it's not going to be a must-buy for anyone except die-hard Lapham fans.
