CBR Review: Daken: Dark Wolverine #9.1

I recently reviewed Daken: Dark Wolverine #9.1 for CBR and, in the process, wrote the following sentences: "New series writer Rob Williams comes aboard with this ‘point one’ issue, replacing the title’s only writers so far, Daniel Way and Marjorie Liu. Daken: Dark Wolverine (and its predecessor Dark Wolverine) has always had potential with a lead character that isn’t quite like any other at Marvel. Daken can occupy philosophical and poetic spaces before shifting into brutal violence. Unfortunately, finding a balance that approaches consistency has never been the book’s strong point, often falling into the habit of having Daken simply retread old Wolverine moments and actions. Williams makes it clear that that cycle will be ending, but not in this issue, which is a rather hollow and empty statement of intent."
