THE ADAMANTIUM MEN Part 1 (of 5) In the jungles of Colombia, people are turning up dead, whole villages brutally slaughtered by a team of soldiers who move through the shadows like ghosts. On the streets of San Francisco, Logan learns that the files from the old Weapon X program, the blueprints for building Adamantium-laced super soldiers like himself, have fallen into the hands of the evil corporation, Roxxon. Once again, it seems, someone is looking to build the perfect killing machine. That means it's time for Wolverine to step in, and remind them that someone already did. Plus 8 pages of Director's Cut Extras! Parental Advisory $3.99

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Apr 9, 2009

    It's not the greatest issue or even the best this week, but it's great fun and Aaron's writing, combined with Garney's pencils, make you understand why Wolverine, as a character, has been so popular over the years. These two simply get the character and what makes him tick and I can't wait to read more from them both. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - Dispatchdcu Apr 1, 2020

    The elements of Wolverine that Aaron made sure to highlight were his crotchety demeanor, his temperament, and his fiery rage. The normal short fuse that Wolverine has reared its ugly head as well as his propensity to be alone and downtrodden. However, some of the inner monologuing didnt jive too well with this reviewer. Additionally, Wolverines tone of voice in his conversations just seemed a bit off as well. Again, its the first issue that was centered more on catching up new readers and progressing the narrative of the Weapon X Project in a new direction. The issue definitely did its job. Now, lets see what Aaron can do with the next installment. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Apr 6, 2009

    Marvel seems to be positioning this series as the central title in the world of Wolverine -- much like "Invincible Iron Man" took the reigns from the fading "Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. series -- and that's a good thing for readers. With Jason Aaron and Ron Garney telling stories about the X-Men's most popular character we'll get a whole lot more than an expensive movie tie-in from "Wolverine: Weapon X." We'll get good stories, well told. And this is just the beginning. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Paul Steven Brown Apr 8, 2009

    My only real complaint is about the price tag and the supplemental pages. I just want to pay the normal (oh dear, I’ve acclimated) $2.99 for a twenty-two page story. I do not want to pay an extra dollar for five pages of character bio material and a six page preview of Jason Aaron’s Ghost Riders: Heaven’s on Fire that won’t be out until August. This is not a sin on par with rip-off that was Astonishing X-Men: Ghost Boxes, but I’ve grown very tired of paying extra for material I do not want. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Andy Frisk Jun 7, 2009

    Unfortunately, for a comic book to be truly great, and live up to its art, and vise versa, its story has to be great as well. With Logan tramping through familiar territory where he, yet again, finds out about a rogue-like Weapon X derived project, and has to kill em all, the story will have to rank as mediocre at best. Hopefully, as this series plays along well get some stronger stories. Aarons proven that he has them in him with this stint on Ghost Rider and Scalped, so maybe theyll migrate over to Wolverine: Weapon X. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Rokk Krinn Apr 10, 2009

    Wolverine Weapon X #1 was a solid and very straight forward action adventure story. There is no subtext and not much depth. What you see is what you get. Readers that like a traditional Wolverine doing what he does best without getting bogged down in endless and ridiculous continuity should definitely enjoy this issue. Wolverine Weapon X appears to be a title created for readers who like a no-frills action story starring a classic version of Wolverine. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Apr 8, 2009

    The creators deliver exactly what was asked of them and have earned their paycheques. All you need to know about this comic book is to be found in its title. It's a typical Wolverine comic, and it's connected to his past with the Weapon X program. End of story. If those elements appeals to you, you've probably already bought and enjoyed the issue. If they don't, you probably avoided this comic in the first place. As I should have. It's not a slight to the people who crafted this comic. I looked to this comic book to find something new, ignoring all the signs that there was nothing new to be found. Read Full Review
