As far as Marvel “what if” tales go, Old Man Logan is one of those books that seemingly can’t be topped. The book’s dystopian future, warped heroes and symbiote dinosaurs made for a Wolverine tale unlike any other, its popularity spurred by the creative team of Mark Millar and Steve McNiven. Seeking to capture said lightning in a bottle yet again, Logan (a Logan, anyway) returns to exact more old-timerly justice, this time in the hands of Brian Michael Bendis and Andrea Sorrentino. The end result isn’t quite as wall-to-wall bananas as the series that preceded it, but it’s nonetheless an exciting and well constructed return.
Though visually quite different, Old Man Logan #1 does an excellent job of immediately capturing the look and feel of the original series. The issue picks up sometime after Logan’s gut bursting run in with the Hulk gang, his past efforts having done little to stem the tide of criminal influence. New factions have quickly moved into the territories left open, using the emblems of heroes and villains long past to mark their claim. In all I would rate this issue an 8.5/10 that’s all for this issue and as always keep on marveling.
