    Comic Crusaders - Dusty Good Feb 3, 2017

    If you are just now finding your way into this series, I urge you and implore you to go back to the very first issue, go back to the mini-series before that, go back to the inception of the idea that was laid down by Mark Millar in Wolverine #66 (Published in 2010)" go back and read it all. When looking at this series as a whole you begin to understand the layered tapestry that has been woven here. This is comic book perfection. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Revolution - Kevin Lainez Feb 4, 2017

    Jeff Lemire and Andrea Sorrentino combined storytelling talents have very few equals and Old Man Logan #17 is yet another example of why that is. Lemire's ability to balance two different timelines and how they complement the story going on in each universe continues to be amazing. The horror and cosmic element of this story once again shows how flexible a character Wolverine can be when a writer treats the story with great care. That care in the story is further elevated by Sorrentino's incredible artwork that delivers some iconic images that leave your jaw on the floor. This all comes together for yet another winner in what is one of Marvel's best ongoing comic books. Read Full Review

    AiPT! - Chris Hassan Feb 1, 2017

    From atwo-page, minimalist spread early on in this comic to panels in the shape of Kang's iconic face mask, Sorrentino proves he's committed to delivering a unique, visual storytelling experience. Just saying, there are more than one pages inthis comic that wouldn't be out of place in a modern art museum.One complaint I do have about this issue is the appearance of Kang and the kidnapped baby plot. Not just because Kang is currently dominating the first arc of Mark Waid's new Avengers series, but that the Vision kidnapped a baby version of Kang not too long ago. A little too much of the same too close together.But, too much Kang is a small price to pay for comics this good. The next issue,Old Man Logan #18, has the potential to be the best partof this current arc as itsmain plot stands revealed. So if you've only got enough cash for two comics in February, you might want to make it an Old Man Logan month. Read Full Review

    Weird Science - Columbus Comics Corner Feb 6, 2017

    The story is starting to ramp up. Jeff Lemire's dialogue isn't lost while he takes Logan through different realities and time. When you think Logan is close to cracking the code, Jeff Lemire literally shatters everything you might've thought was real and up's the stakes. The pages provide stunning artwork and panel transitions to make for a fun read. You can tell everything in the book is being well thought out and I admire that. This issue takes the leap to progress the story expansively. While some books were a bit dull for me, this week's Old Man Logan came on top for pick of the week.Bits and Pieces:Jeff Lemire continues to pull another exciting story from his vault. He does a great job of playing with two different realities while telling an engaging story. Andrea Sorrentino and Marcelo Maiolo help pull everything together with their artwork. When the story seems to unfold a bit, Jeff Lemire takes things up a notch. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Feb 2, 2017

    I wish the script could find a little more room to explore the dynamic between Puck and Logan, but otherwise this arc is proving mighty enjoyable. Read Full Review
