    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Jan 26, 2022

    All in all, X Many Lives Of Wolverine #1 is an outstanding first issue to the newest chapter in the Krakoa saga. Percy and Cassara make a great team, and they knock this one out of the park. Theres not a ton of substance, but it gets right down in it, letting the events tell the story instead of getting too wordy. Its an exciting, fast-paced comic. Read Full Review

    GWW - Joseph Gilmore Jan 17, 2022

    Overall, Percy nails this first chapter of Wolverine's newest saga. Where it goes from here, I have no clue. But what I do know is the journey, and the death toll, should be wildly entertaining. Read Full Review

    The Comicbook Dispatch - Dispatchdcu Jan 17, 2022

    Percy and Cassara provide a much-needed kick in the $&$ to this new X-MEN era of comics. INFERNO closed the Jonathan Hickman chapter of X-MEN while X LIVES OF WOLVERINE begins the next official phase. And just like HOXPOX offered a fresh start, my hope is X LIVES OF WOLVERINE can do the same. Why? X-MEN comics as a whole throughout the Hickman era were certainly above average but lacked direction and began diverging farther and farther from one another. Writers began telling their own stories and they lost their conductivity. My hope is writers like Percy and Duggan (who were by far the best writers of the Hickman X-MEN era) can bring this all back together as one large tapestry, which is what we all thought it was going to be when HOXPOX began.

    AIPT - Ryan Sonneville Jan 17, 2022

    X Lives of Wolverine #1should comfort X-readers unsure of the future of the X-line while also bring in those who felt the X-books eschewed more traditional super-heroics in recent years. It's an excellent first issue, promising an exciting Wolverine adventure that honors the character's history while giving him fresh vitality for the X-Men era to come. Read Full Review

    ComicBook.com - Jamie Lovett Jan 19, 2022

    Based on the first issue, X Lives of Wolverine isn't going to set the mutant world on fire the way HoX/PoX did, but it is easily Percy's most ambitious story to date, and this is a stellar start. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Jan 20, 2022

    The next stage of the X-Men's Krakoan Age begins as Wolverine takes center stage on a journey through time to protect a mutant that has a major part in how far mutant-kind has come. It's a very Wolverine-like story, one's mileage will vary with that, that has some intriguing components that could make it work as a bigger X-Men story as it continues. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Marcus Orchard Jan 20, 2022

    While X Lives of Wolverine #1 is an entertaining debut, it fails to establish this series as the next must-read event in the Krakoa era. Read Full Review

    Comics Bookcase - Benjamin Morin Jan 19, 2022

    Leaving readers with more questions than answers, X Lives of Wolverine #1 feels like more of a big jumbled fight than the start of an event thats going to really matter. But we shall see. Read Full Review

    Multiversity Comics - Robbie Pleasant Jan 20, 2022

    Light on exposition, but high on action. This comic hits you with the action quickly, with all that you'd expect from a comic with Wolverine and Omega Red, while starting a trip into Wolverine's history. Read Full Review

    Graphic Policy - Logan Dalton Jan 19, 2022

    Even though Percy did seed Omega Red's anger against Krakoa in previous issues of X-Force, the character works as a B or C-plot not the centerpiece of an event. Joshua Cassara stages the fight between Wolverine, a badass Mrs. Xavier, and the Omegas in a compelling way with gritty colors from Frank Martin, but it feels like a generic video game fight. With the appearance of Rasputin and the presence of Jean Grey, the upcoming timeline hops might have better stakes, but honestly after 40 pages of this, I'm not sticking around every week to see if they do.
