Nine months of the year, the desolate town of Killhorn Falls, Canada is cut off from the rest of the world. Cold and dark, visitors are a rarity. So when the time-displaced Old Man Logan comes to town on a mission, people take notice...especially people who have a bone to pick with the former Wolverine. With no way to escape, can Logan protect the people of Killhorn Falls and save his own skin...while safeguarding the only thing in the present that he hopes will survive to meet him in the future?

    Overall, the creators take the long way around a pretty straightforward journey, but they make it worth the effort. Read Full Review

    Old Man Logan #5 gets “Bordertown” off to a decent start, as despite not being quite as exciting as recent issues, it gives some bold character development. It also touches on Logan's future in an engaging way, even if the slower pace proved a little dejecting. Read Full Review

    OLD MAN LOGAN is a great seriesandLemire and Sorrentino have proved that they know how to tell a good Wolverine story. However, this latest issue highlights a lot of problems the book had in the beginning and treads along at a slow pace, spending too much time recapping and not enough time moving forward.

    This book has been a great way to get your share of Logan Wolverine story in the Main Marvel Universe, while still allowing “regular” wolverine to be dead and x-23, or Laura to take his place and don the mantle of Wolverine. i love the way this book looks and feels, Lemire and Sorrentino really have a natural flow to their work, they just seem to gel together, since their run on Green Arrown, I’ve been hooked. this issue is the second arc of the ongoing Old Man Logan series, and serves as a pretty good jumping on point for the title, though i DO highly recommend reading the original story, and the secret wars miniseries and the first arc as well. so maybe this doesn’t need to be your entry point for Old Man Logan, but if it is any consolation- you’ll enjoy it once you get here. the parallels between the “current” timeline and Logan’s “past” life are pretty heavy-handed here, not that i terribly mind. the last page reveal was a pretty intense one, and one that is teased again on the next issue’s cover. so it won’t be much of a shock to find out- but i want to know who the rest of the crew is… i didn’t recognize them, but they are of a different timeline than the main Marvel Universe, and not Old Man Logan’s people either, so i don’t know what we are getting into here. i love this book, though. and i cannot wait to see where things go from here. and that means bloody, violent, terrible and emotional stuff is ahead. that always what a slower, more character driven Wolverine story means… “next stop, bloodbath gulch”. is that a real place? if not, it should be. Marvel, hit me up, ill let you have Bloodbath Gulch, for cheap!

    It's going to be a great story. I love the fact that Wolverine's world is very similar to his world, so he does have that chance of redemption. Something, quaint about that notion. Lemire does a great job at making Wolverine have a heart and you see why this issue. The art of Sorrentino does go unnoticed due to the fact that there is nothing extravagant going on but it's on point. Can't wait for the next issue. :)

    Not sure I'm entirely comfortable with Logan building a relationship with a girl he loved as a woman.
