    Wolverine Old Man Logan Giant-Size #1 was a great read. I completely enjoyed Old Man Logan and would recommend this story to any readers who like action stories. Wolverine fans, Eastwood fans and readers who like big summer blockbuster style action are sure to enjoy Wolverine Old Man Logan Giant-Size #1 . If you missed out on this story or dropped it due to the poor shipping schedule then definitely pick Old Man Logan up when Marvel releases the hardcover edition on October 28, 2009. Read Full Review

    Which brings me to my final point. The issue is a little deceptive in it size. Though the story comes in at 32 pages, that still leaves twenty-plus pages for sketches and a cover gallery. This type of bonus material is welcome in a trade, but for a $4.99 comic, I'd prefer if more of those pages had been used on story content. Still, considering the sheer entertainment value of the main feature, I consider the comic worth the cover price in the end. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Ryan Schrodt Sep 24, 2009

    This is an excellently crafted issue that most certainly desires a "Must Read" verdict based upon the merits of its execution. Millar and McNiven bring their Agame and the end result is a simply fantastic comic that excels on nearly all levels. Unfortunately, the ridiculous price tag and sorry excuse for extras hold this one back. You definitely shouldn't miss this issue, even if its going to cost you way more than it should to check it out. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Sep 24, 2009

    The great-looking Giant-Size Old Man Logan definitely caps Millar's Wolverine arc well. That said, I'm not entirely convinced it's worth the price tag. Check it out, but just be aware that, outside of the visuals, you aren't getting as much as you might think for your five bucks. Read Full Review

    Lovers of Millar's work in general -- and in particular, those who have followed "Old Man Logan" this far -- probably won't be able to resist buying this final issue to see how the writer wraps up his tale. However, for more casual readers, an extra $2.00 for 10 extra story pages and a gallery of images (most of which have already been seen elsewhere) might be a price-hike too far, especially when Marvel's recent big anniversary issues have provided more than a hundred pages of content for the same price.

    Old Man Logan might not quite be the classic it could've been, but there's no denying that it's gone out with a bang. I wasn't the biggest fan of the story overall, but this final chapter is difficult to hate "- if you don't like watching Wolverine successfully hack his way through his enemies, then frankly, you don't like Wolverine. That may be all that this issue is, but in the case of Wolverine, well, that should be enough. Read Full Review

    With all things considered this comic would have been a terrific one-shot if it were the only issue in the series. However, when stacked up with the rest of the arc, story wise and price wise, it disappoints and is out of place. If you like fighting then pick this up. It's a stiff price but it could be worse. I found the resolution to the story to be lackluster and would have preferred it was just an issue of old Hulk fighting old Wolverine with no previous issues to the arc trying to lay down a coherent story. You can't go wrong with the artwork though. Read Full Review

    Pretty, bloody, and completely, totally empty and I actually love Millar's Enemy of the State. Read Full Review

    Eye On Comics - Don MacPherson Sep 24, 2009

    Millars diverting romp through an alternate, dystopian vision of the Marvel Universe shifts gears significantly with its conclusion, much to my disappointment. He tosses fun out of the window and instead challenges his artist to top himself from page to page in terms of sheer gore and gruesomeness. Read Full Review
