    Comicosity - Michael Hale May 23, 2018

    It is no stretch to say that Wolverine: The Long Night is a wonderful audio experience that every comic fan should check out, if only because there is really nothing else like it presently in Marvels entertainment toybox. Read Full Review

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Corey Patterson Jan 2, 2019

    WOLVERINE: THE LONG NIGHT is off to a great start with its first issue. The combined elements of mystery and fear give readers the very best of a Wolverine story. If you're a fan of any movie/comic/show featuring Logan, I highly recommend picking up this book. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Brett Jan 2, 2019

    This is a solid murder mystery read that so far just happens to have Wolverine involved. I've never listened to the podcast but after reading this first issue I'm tempted to give it a shot. This is a great set up to the story and again it feels more like a police procedural than anything else. If that sort of story appeals to you, this is a comic that's a must get. Read Full Review

    You Don't Read Comics - Russ Bickerstaff Jan 9, 2019

    Whether its there to promote the podcast or to capitalize on its success, the comic book adaptation of The Long Night seems to be off on the right foot in its opening chapter. The mood and tone are captured with an admirably clean and simple energy. Time will tell if the comic book series can keep up with what it managed to accomplish in the first issue.  Read Full Review

    Compelling, instigating, complex. The sharp dialogue and versatile art on "Wolverine: The Long Night" #1 makes it a very strong debut issue. Read Full Review

    Comic Crusaders - Jeffrey Bracey Jan 8, 2019

    Overall though the story is pretty good. The interactions between the feds and the locals are quite nice and the characters feel very human and fleshed out. The author does a nice job of capturing the perspective of the native Alaskans and the agents. It just seems that this story is for people who have never heard of Wolverine before, otherwise the it doesn't work as intended. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Jim Werner Jan 8, 2019

    I liked this first issue of the series even if Ben Percy is taking his time at the start. Maybe thats why I like it as we get to meet the characters and explore the setting. This issue is not action-packed, but anyone looking for a murder mystery with some crazy potential down the road should check this out. Read Full Review

    AIPT - Mike Pursell Jul 29, 2019

    The first read-through will keep you engaged and wondering, but the ending is kind of deflating. Read Full Review
