Good conclusion to the story with Wolverine. I really enjoyed the art/design in the one spread detailing the sewer lair system and how Kamala and Wolverine made their way back to the surface. Remains a great, fun read every month.

Interesting first issue. It was enjoyable but it didn't have that one hook that made me want to add it to my pull list. The dialogue was cloudy at first, but cleared up and seemed more nature as the issue went on. I wasn't bothered by the art at all, in fact I quite liked it, although I'm sure it won't be for everyone. If you're curious give it a shot.

This is a very...interesting first issue. The premise is unique but there isn't any bigger picture provided throughout the comic, which makes it a little harder to be interested in the story.

A mind blowing issue to lead up to the finale. Really sad that this series is coming to an end with only a possible mini series left, but it's been an amazing run and the use of vast scale and time as well as fantastic art makes sure that this series will finish as one of the best in some time.

I enjoyed this issue better than last month's, but it still feels lacking in any sort of serious story development in what is the penultimate issue in the mini series.

Unfortunately, this series, like Trilium, has fizzled a bit. Since it was one of the best books going early on, that still means it's a good read, but the story hasn't been as strong in the last two issues.
