Old Man Logan #1

Back in 2008-2009, two amazing men created a national treasure called Old Man Logan. Those two men were Mark Millar and Steve McNiven. Now it’s been quite some time since this book came out so I am not going to warn you for spoilers. As I was saying, who would of ever thought that Wolverine would stop using his claws, lay low, start a family and most important, not approve of violence. Well it might sound boring but it is one of the best, if not the best Wolverine story of all time. In 2015 they announced that Old Man Logan would be returning as a side-comic to the Secret Wars event and I must say it didn’t disappoint, but it also didn’t live up to expectations. Logan died back in 2014, leaving us without a Wolverine book for quite some time. At this point some don’t care for a new one and some wouldn’t mind one, but instead of getting a regular Wolverine book, we are getting something cooler. That something is an ongoing Old Man Logan series and all I have to say is: Thank you Marvel! The first time I read this book I wasn’t sure how to feel. I was hyped to kingdom come and I felt underwhelmed. When I reread it, it hit me like a damn bus. This is a different Wolverine, he is not happy with the way things turned out in his timeline/universe and he will take matter into his hands. Even though it is based in modern times, the book still feels very western. Logan feels like Clint Eastwood and that is extremely badass. The book has an excellent introduction of what has happened and where the book is going. Obviously the character of Logan is excellently written and we don’t meet many other characters, so there isn’t much to say about that. The artwork for this book is very interesting. It almost doesn’t feel like a Marvel book. I find that the art really sets the tone for the book and matches the character extremely well. I don’t have much else to say without spoiling, but I can say that you have to go buy this.
