CesarCastanha reviewed Return of Wolverine #1 Sep 21, 2018
6.0

Truth be told, Wolverine was never gone. We've had Old Man Logan in about every X-series since 2015. I believe we could have a time off of Wolverine, but this is now the fifth miniseries about his return. And, except for the art, this first issue here just felt like much of the same. For a good Wolverine "return" we can go and read Thor #5.

CesarCastanha reviewed X-Men: Gold #36 Sep 21, 2018
9.5

I'll just get this out of my way: Marc Guggenheim's run was... not very good. But this finale was almost perfect. This is what the X-men are about. They are not a military legion like Avengers, or free entrepeneurs of science and adventure, like the Fantastic Four. They have been persecuted and their cause often seems pointless, and that's what make them such a good team to follow. It's not about more
