    All and all I thought this was a really good issue, I like seeing Deadpool and Old Man Logan together it makes for a good read. This issue probably should have gotten a five out of five, but I am actually starting to wear a little thin on the whole Deadpool scene. Marvel have simply over loaded my system with I do believe. With the release of the hugely popular Deadpool movie starring Ryan Reynolds it has catapulted the Deadpool character into a Spider-Man or X-Men status where they are instantly recognizable by everyone. Marvel is taking full advantage of this by flooding the market with everything Deadpool, and why shouldn't they you have to strike while the iron is hot. In the end this is a good read and I recommend it and I am looking forward to the next issue and further more looking forward to Mike Henderson's artwork. Read Full Review

    If you are a fan of these characters, more than likely Deadpool Vs. Old Man Logan is already on your pull list. But if it isn't and you are on the fence, I am here to tell you run out and pick up this book! The action is rowdy and the comedy is actually humorous and will bring a smile to your face. It's a fun book and I am looking forward to what this creative team has up their sleeve for the next issue. Read Full Review

    Sometimes you don't need to reinvent the wheel to make something satisfying - sometimes it's enough to play to your audience using a couple of old standards. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Joshua Hilgenberg Oct 21, 2017

    It delivers on the comedy and gore that are expected from the titular characters, but only for part of the issue. Read Full Review

    We The Nerdy - Kyle Simcox Oct 21, 2017

    Overall, its an entertaining issue to say the least. Logan is a good choice for Deadpool to clash with. If you like these two characters then this is going to be a fun five-part series. However, if you're feeling fatigued by Deadpool and all of his versus titles, then you won't really be missing out if you skip this one. Read Full Review

    Logan and Wade come clashing sword to claw in this adequate yet comedic debut crossover issue. Read Full Review

    The Beat - Alexander Jones Oct 19, 2017

    This issue contains a flair courtesy of Henderson, but Logan and Deadpool's interactions need to have more weight if their conflicts going forward are to have an effect on readers. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Oct 18, 2017

    Unfortunately, Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan does little to stand out in a sea of Deadpool crossover comics. This first issue does little to tap into the meat of the Deadpool/Wolverine dynamic. Nor does it showcase Wade's comedic side particularly well. And while the art style is a great fit, the storytelling is riddled with a number of flaws that hinder the flow of the issue. There's a lot of potential to this team-up that isn't being utilized here. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Oct 20, 2017

    Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan #1 delivers on the fun of having these two characters crossing paths with one another. Unfortunately that fun does run dry by the end of this issue as writer Declan Shalvey delivers a generic comic book plot for Deadpool and Old Man Logan to be involved in. That along with the restrained action sequences we do get make it hard to imagine Deadpool vs. Old Man Logan as a series that will live up to its potential. Read Full Review

    411Mania - RobF Oct 26, 2017

    The combination of OML and Deadpool should be a natural combination: Their conflicting personalities are perfect for conflict. But Shalvey took the safe route with a story we have heard many times and done better. Disappointing to say the least. Read Full Review
