X-23 has never had an easy relationship with the rest of the X-Men, but when she learns someone has taken down Wolverine, she must step up to fill his shoes.

    I had very high expectations for this issue and Marjorie Liu's brilliant characterfocused writing did not disappoint. This is one of the most compelling portrayals of X23 that I've ever read. The moment I put this comic down, I immediately wanted another issue because I have to know what happens next. When you add in very strong art from Wil Conrad, you have a total package comic that should not be missed under any circumstances. Read Full Review

    Much to my surprise, X-23 is shaping up to be the best of the three new Wolverine books. Both Wolverine Vol. 4 #1 and Daken: Dark Wolverine #1 were solid first efforts, but ran into some storytelling snags as well. Meanwhile, this book moves easily and gracefully forward. X-23 has deserved her own book for a long time now. I'm confident that Liu and Conrad are the right creators to continue and expand her story. Read Full Review

    I loved this first issue of the X-23 series and think that Liu has implemented numerous elements that show that the writer has a tremendous feel for the character, whom she has written before. It also proves that Ms. Liu is definitely in her element and is the go to gal for dealing with Wolveresque characters. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Joe Lopez Sep 16, 2010

    There are just as many positives as negatives to be found in this first issue of Marvel's newest X-title, and while Liu seems to manage to hit the right beats most of the time, Conrad's handle of the character is more in doubt. There's enough promise here to stick with it for the first arc, at least. Let's hope it's not in vain. Read Full Review
