    There is a lot to like about this comic book between the quirky, sick story, the detailed and graphic art, the unique coloring, the new villain, the new girlfriend and the new danger to Wolverine. I typically look for one or two laughs from a Jason Aaron Wolverine story and this really doesn't include them, but beyond that, this comic book is pretty much a perfect addition to the Wolverine library. This is the kind of awesome character Wolverine can be in the hands of a capable creative team. Read Full Review

    Wolverine Weapon X #9 was a fantastic read. Aaron and Paquette combine to tell a fun and compelling story arc that introduced an instant classic villain in Dr. Rot. I cannot wait to see what Aaron has in store for Wolverine in the next story arc because these first two story arcs have been a blast to read. Aaron has reminded me why Wolverine is one of my favorite characters in comics. If you are a Wolverine fan I highly recommend picking up Wolverine Weapon X as it is just a fun read that has taken the character back to what made him so great in the first place. Read Full Review

    Jason Aaron is not-so-quitely carving out a Wolverine run for the ages here. And it demands a look. Read Full Review

    A huge shift from previous issues in the arc, but still a lot of fun. Read Full Review

    Wolverines X-Men friends have come to save him from the clutches of Doctor Rot at Dunwich Sanitorium but before X-Men Nightcrawler and Psylocke can rescue their friend, they have to reach his mind. Doctor Rot continues to be the only funny thing in this storyline. I like that his gut was spilling all over the place yet, he survived the ordeal and will probably be back for more. Hes the kind of villain that takes a good beating and loses limbs every time he meets the hero, yet one wonders how he survives. If Aaron was aiming for a crazy equivalent to the Joker, he hit every button here. The gut action was of course delectably sick thanks to the beautiful and gross artwork from Paquette. If it wasnt for him, this story would just be another B-type of story and not much enjoyable. Read Full Review

    IGN - Bryan Joel Jan 20, 2010

    I'm a bit conflicted regarding this issue of Wolverine: Weapon X. Taken as separate pieces and considered in depth, the moving parts of issue #9 are somehow "wrong," don't work in sync, and clash significantly at times. But viewed as part of a story about insanity and mental control, those weaknesses become strengths and add to the histrionics of the tale. As is becoming customary with this title, your enjoyment will depend on your willingness to let Aaron take you for his ride, and not worry too much about the details. Regardless, though, this is the most higher-level thinking I've thrown the character's way in quite some time, so that should tell you something about the quality of this series. Read Full Review

    An arc that went on a little longer than it should, "Insane in the Brain" was still an interesting, nasty little piece. Read Full Review
