Overall it's a fine issue. The art is good, it's fast-paced, and the characters are well-written. Unfortunately not only is this arc too much like other recent stories (specifically Four Sisters from All-New Wolverine) the plotting was also rather predictable.

Let's Fridge a disabled chick, and gratuitously kill off a WoC who DOESN'T EVEN GET TO DIE ON-PANEL, and you wouldn't know the corpse was hers if someone didn't explicitly identify her.

It's bad enough Editorial won't let the NXM grow up because it ages the "classic" cast too much, but to then turn around and kill them off in such a tonedeaf manner for shock value is frankly insulting.

Too much reliance on nostalgia. Too many characters written badly out of character. Too much plot that's plopped down preassembled and with no build-up. And worse still, we're back to yet ANOTHER Mutant Extinction plot so soon after IvX (and that's not even getting into the Age of Apocalypse rehash).

As always a very strong reading. I really love Gaby. I have only a part I don't fully understand.
The part who seem to be a flashfoward. Maybe link to what Old Man Logan tell to Laura.
I find it originality in this story with a lot of thing already seen in a Laura Story.
But cloning and Laura are tied up and work well. I wonder how of Peter & Wolvy have more clone now ^^

An overall solid issue, I just wish it wasn't treading ground that was already explored so recently. Not only are we dealing with more X-23 clones a mere 3 years after Gabby, Zelda, and Bellona were introduced, but it turns out the plot is being driven by the same villain!

There's also a small retcon to Laura's background that ties All-New Wolverine much more closely to Innocence Lost, more

It's a breather issue between two heavy arcs. The art is a step back from Cabal, though served the inherent silliness of the story well.

If there's a weakness, it's that while the idea of Gabby interacting at school with normal kids her age and Laura herself being in a teacher's role is an interesting one, Tamaki never really gives it the thorough exploration it deserves. Rather than be more

Weapon Hex #1 is basically X-23: Innocence Lost condensed into one issue, with Laura gaining Wanda's magic powers. This addition really didn't change all that much and the story didn't really cover any ground X-23's main 'verse origin story didn't already.

oh, ok, personally i think the reason she changed back to X-23 is becuase the anti-SJW thought her being wolverine was insulting cause she's a diffrent gender than logan, and marvel editorial gave up and decided to make them happy not trying to look like an SJW apoligist, I do see where they're coming from, but i think it's a little overblown especially since at least she's an established supporting character and not some nobody that exist to be diverse like riri

My big question remains why Laura would take back the X-23 name after so directly rejecting it in the last book. It's not by any means a flaw of the book itself, but it's definitely an issue we're seeing within Marvel of hammering the Reset Button so liberally. Combined with the fact we never got to see the moment Laura decided to become Wolverine, it only emphasizes the sense that her stint was s more

I couldn't help but be underwhelmed by the end of All-New Wolverine. Its final arc began with a lot of promise, but part three of Old Woman Laura just falls flat for me. Maybe because I just didn't want the book to end it feels unsatisfying, but it was also quite anti-climactic.

Yes, completely unexplainable as well, considering that, before Soule (who's actually a worse writer than Taylor), all they had was a mutual respect for each other, not some crazy siblings' loving relationship. As for the cover, there's a difference between "not depicting exactly what happens in the book", as you say, and having nothing to do with the story.
