• He may be an Old Man, but never before has the world needed Logan as much as it does now.
•  The people he loved have become mere memories. The world that he loved has decayed, becoming a festering Wasteland.
•  But in a world devoid of heroes, even someone who is the best there is at what he does may find themselves overmatched by evil.

    Turning through the pages of this book is like an adrenaline rush orchestrated by both the visuals and story itself. It may only have been less than a year since the often overused Wolverine met his maker, but with stories like these, he is more than welcome back. Read Full Review

    With Old Man Logan #2, Bendis and his team are potentially creating one of the most important tie-ins to the "Secret Wars" event. The connection to the upcoming "Age of Apocalypse" story makes this one series you don't want to miss out on. Read Full Review

    Despite the fact that Logan’s character isn’t doing all that we would like to see, this book is fantastically written and, knowing Bendis, Logan will do the storytelling himself, at whatever pace he feels is natural and appropriate.  This book pushes the metaphorical boundaries of Battleworld, to include the stretches in which so many tie-ins can survive. There is a lot more story for Bendis, Sorrentino, and Maiolo to create and explore, and I have no doubt that the best of it is yet to come. Read Full Review

    All you need to know about Old Man Logan #2 is that it is a must buy merely to have the beautiful artwork from Andrea Sorrentino in your hands to look over for the rest of time. This is just a fantastic looking comic book with Sorrentino ability to tell a complete story through his artwork a sight to see. It's in that beautiful artwork that the story is propelled to be better than it may have been otherwise. With how Brian Bendis is presenting Logan as a wild card within Battleworld I am even more excited to see what comes next in this series. Read Full Review

    So is it a good read? Yes, absolutely, but it does come with baggage. There are things you need to know. But if you know them, you will enjoy a strong debut issue. Read Full Review

    Geeked Out Nation - Jideobi Odunze Jun 18, 2015

    Just like the issue before, Old Man Logan continues to be one of the more visually appealing titles spinning out of Secret Wars. The art style this art team brings to the table is so unique that you couldn't imagine this drawn any other way. You wouldn't get that same mix of grit and elegance. This is a series where are no punches pulled, and yet there is an admiration when they put the effort into making every scene distinct. That distinction is seen through the way each page is laid out.

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jun 18, 2015

    Old Man Logan really has been one of the best tie-in books for the Secret Wars event. Brian Michael Bendis is turning in some of his best work with this series. His run on Uncanny X-Man may get scrutinized, but you really cant trash him for Old Man Logan. The art has been nothing short of outstanding. Sorrentino and Maiolo have been great and make this mini even better. This is the bar for what tie-ins must live up to. Read Full Review

    Comic Vine - Tony 'G-Man' Guerrero Jun 17, 2015

    The story of Old Man Logan continues. This isn't your typical Secret Wars tie-in book. In others, the characters seem fully aware of where they are in terms of Battleworld and the bigger story. That isn't the case for Logan and makes him venturing into another domain more interesting. Bendis is keeping us on the edge of our seats and Sorrentino and Maiolo's art and colors are phenomenal. Old Man Logan is definitely going to have his hands full. This will not be a vacation for him. With the changes happening to the Marvel Universe after SECRET WARS, this could be a very important book to keep an eye on. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Doug Zawisza Jun 19, 2015

    "Old Man Logan" #2 is another example of what the notion of Battleworld can be pushed to include. Anything can happen, from the "impossible" feat that opens the issue to the jaw-dropping potential battle that readers are left with at the conclusion of this comic. There is a lot to like here and a lot more ground for Bendis, Sorrentino, Maiolo and Petit to continue to explore. Logan is the center of the adventure, and the adventure is his quest for the point of origin of last issue's Ultron noggin, but there are plenty of other characters and concepts to impress readers along the way.

    All in all, though, I have to admit I'm pretty impressed. Bendis takes a book that could very well have limited his artistic freedom and felt like a heartless cash-grab with nothing to do with the original story; and he manages to make it feel like a great sequel and a logical next-step. This is a great book that, if it keeps being as top-notch as it has been so far, I will totally need it in my collection! The story has lots and lots of potential. I just hope Bendis lives up to that potential in the future and doesn't waste the limited time he has. Read Full Review

    A really tired, non explanatory issue that just seems to give you some flash and glitter, with no real meat on the bones of the story. After such a good first issue, my only hope can be that this storyline picks up with the next issue. Read Full Review

    There may be some intriguing twists within Old Man Logan #2, but unfortunately they prove a little muddled, with there being too much going on at one. There is however once again beautiful artwork from Sorrentino, with the final page leaving me cautiously looking forward to the next issue. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen Jun 17, 2015

    As great as it is to see Old Man Logan back in action, this series isn't exactly taking advantage of the character right now. Removing him from his signature world seems to have diminished the character and his tragic aura. While this series boasts a terrific visual sensibility, that isn't enough to make up for such a barren story. Read Full Review

    Unless you've read the previous Secret Wars titles and/or the last Old Man Logan series, you're going to be insufferably confused. Don't waste your money if you know very little about the Marvel universe, especially about the Secret Wars or Wolverine's recent storyline. HOWEVER, if you DO know a thing or two about current events in the multiverse " wait, that was destroyed, wasn't it? You know what I mean " then maybe you will understand all the references and these characters will all be familiar faces. Maybe you'll love this comic. All I know is I sure didn't. Read Full Review

    Newsarama - David Pepose Jun 17, 2015

    Old Man Logan is a character whose world has enthralled plenty of comic book readers over the years - Mark Millar's take on a superheroic world living on far past its expiration date hit a lot of fanboy buttons, particularly now that we live in a post-Mad Max cinemascape. Which is what makes Old Man Logan #2 such a disappointment - Bendis had the opportunity to continue exploring this insane new world, and gave up on it the first chance he got. Without that strong sense of place, Marvel's mightiest mutant has just gotten himself de-clawed. Read Full Review

    Fox Force Five News - Keven Skinner Jun 18, 2015

    I'm extremely disappointed in the storyline thus far for Old Man Logan and issue 2 is far worse than the lackluster debut. Like I said earlier though – if all of this confusing bullshit is because of the current cross-over event, then it only reaffirms that the majority of Marvel and DC books just aren't for me because they wind up sacrificing story for appeasing the brand.
