The writing's been on the wall for months now... Logan is dying. And he ain't getting any better. Sick from the Adamantium coating his skeleton, his search for a cure has led to nothing but dead ends. But for once he's actually trying to leave this world with some unfinished business... Can Logan take his last breath without slaughtering the X-Men again? Not if Mysterio has anything to say about it...
Superstar creative team ED BRISSON (OLD MAN LOGAN, UNCANNY X-MEN) and MIKE HENDERSON (DEADPOOL VS. OLD MAN LOGAN), with covers by DECLAN SHALVEY (MOON KNIGHT), is putting this old dog out of his misery with a bang!

    You Don't Read Comics - David Harth Dec 12, 2018

    Dead Man Logan delivers in a lot of surprising ways. There were a few directions this one could go, but Brisson throws in a few twists and turns that will surprise readers and provide a great hook to keep them with this book til the bloody end. Hendersons art is the icing on the cake. This is a must read for any fans of Logan. Read Full Review

    AIPT - David Brooke Nov 27, 2018

    I enjoyed this issue as it kickstarts Logan's adventure in a clear way. It has a good balance of humor and action while also setting up a buddy cop style narrative that'll be fun to read. Dead Man Logan has a detective noir sensibility that's hard to resist. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - Pierce Lydon Nov 27, 2018

    A lot of your enjoyment of this title will hinge on your feelings about Brisson as a writer. His own personal quirks are fully on display here and when they work (i.e. a side-splitting Glob Herman/Forge scene), they’re streets ahead of the duds (i.e. “Really? Was ‘Lady Bad Guy’ already taken?”). Henderson delivers some really solid cartooning that for the most parts weaves together well with the script he’s been given. It’s strange that a book like this doesn’t feel like more of an event, but readers looking for a conclusion to four years of Old Man Logan appearances will almost definitely find something they like here.

    Monkeys Fighting Robots - Brandon J. Griffin Nov 27, 2018

    Whether you're ready to say goodbye to grumpy Logan yet or not, this final chapter of his story looks to be a satisfying and fitting end. Dead Man Logan respects the characters and stories that came before. Where the issues are with Logan in the art, there is strength to literally every other character. Read Full Review

    Sequential Planet - Steven Martinez Dec 1, 2018

    Dead Man Logan #1 starts the march to Old Man Logan's demise. The story isn't completely new, but the art and characters make it work. Read Full Review

    Henderson's fight scenes are fun to look at. It's like action movie. His facial expressions are top notch as well, which is important because there is some heavy dialogue. Read Full Review

    One last hurrah for the older, painful, scarred Logan. If this series continues on the path it has set for itself, this will be a worthy ride into the sunset. Read Full Review

    Epicstream - Jake Vyper Dec 4, 2018

    Dead Man Logan #1 is agood start for a 12-issue series, and whileit's hard to know why we need another series to conclude Old Man Logan's tale at this point, it's good to see how the series is tying into the character's beginnings without being dragged by the character's grim future (or past?). With only a few months to live, it looks like Logan's tragic fate is already written, but I'm hoping that the rest of the story won't be a predictabledrag.Hopefully, the opening issue's lighthearted moments would reflect the ending of Logan's story. Ed Brisson, who's also one of the writers of the ongoing Uncanny X-Men, is expanding Old Man Logan's tale with a strong start by clearly showing us the main conflict but even with Henderson's well-paced action scenes, I can't help but feel the barren possibilities of Logan's future.

    When it's all said and done, it feels like nothing much has really happened, and that that probably won't change too much over the final 12 months. Read Full Review
