    Still incredibly experimental and creative, with a cool grindhouse flavor added in, this one's a keeper. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Timothy Callahan Nov 18, 2009

    Seven issues in, and this is the kind of "Wolverine: Weapon X" issue that we've been waiting for. It's not for the faint of heart. It's not for readers who thought the movie was the best version of Wolverine ever. It's for those of us looking for an offbeat, disconcerting Wolverine story. One that is a bit different from your normal superhero tale. Read Full Review

    This comic book is a good story, but it will be good to get on with this arc as I think the whole asylum setup has reached its limit. I'm glad we are seeing some variance in the Wolverine stories that have smart writing and solid ideas behind them. This series has been very good so far and this issue falls right in line with what we've come to expect in the early going here. Read Full Review

    Looking ahead, it does seem like Aaron is getting his act together and moving the story forward next issue. But as far as this one goes, it's the best proof we've got that this story arc "Insane In The Brain" probably could've been a four-parter. Read Full Review

    If it wasnt for Paquette, this story would not be enjoyable. He makes Wolverine look like a real man, not a perfect Adonis. He looks rough and out of shape. I like that. When you see fear in his face, you can believe it. The inking is solid and adds the right dark mix to the story. Its too bad the plot is not good enough to benefit from this. Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Paul Steven Brown Nov 20, 2009

    Despite my criticisms, I still think that this story is a really compelling idea and use of Wolverine. If I had to read only one comic book starring the hirsute mutant killing machine, it would certainly be Wolverine: Weapon X. Jason Aaron continues to have interesting ideas for the characters and the writer is apt at balancing violence and humor is a disturbingly exciting fashion. Read Full Review
