    As for X LIVES OF WOLVERINE #5 specifically, the issue was exceptionally vivid, graphic, and extraordinarily intense. The pacing was fast, the transitions were clean, and the insight was rather thought-provoking. Like any good Ogre, this issue had some layers. Yet even though the issue had some crazy layers, it also was relentless and so $&@ exciting to read. Read Full Review

    The rest of the book is a love letter to the fans of guts and glory all over your page. The battle between the adamantium claws and carbonadium tentacles was one of the best 1v1 faceoffs in a long while. Can't wait to see how the final chapter comes to a close in X Deaths of Wolverine.

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Mar 24, 2022

    X Lives Of Wolverine #5 is a good ending to an otherwise stellar series. Its action centerpiece is one of the best Wolverine fights in years, though, and while there are some disappointments with the comic, its still a good read. Percy, as usual, knows precisely how to write Wolverine. Cassaras art is a little lesser than in previous issues but still pretty good throughout. This has been a great series, one of the highlights of the X-Men line for the last year. Read Full Review

    COMICON - Scott Redmond Mar 22, 2022

    ‘X Lives of Wolverine' is a story that standing on its own would be relatively fine in execution, but as a centerpiece kicking off the next era of X-Men-related books it can be somewhat lacking. Artistically it's really well done, pulling off what is being asked of them with simple colorful, and brutal ease. Perhaps being read as a full complete unit with its sibling series might bring more to the book overall. Read Full Review
