    Old Man Logan #3 does a fantastic job fully utilizing the concept behind Battleworld and using it to its full potential. Brian Bendis has been able to carve out something unique with his wandering samurai approach to detailing Old Man Logan's journey to meet Doom. The way that Logan is able to effect world's like Age of Apocalypse and Armor Wars helped to add to the greater story being told in Secret Wars. It doesn't hurt that this series features Andrea Sorrentino's jaw dropping artwork. Read Full Review

    This issue is one that takes advantage of Battleworld and the Secret Wars label. It’s really great to see a series set in Battleworld and exploring Battleworld. Logan is a classic character whom we’ve seen a lot of, but never like this. I was drawn to this series by issue #1. It truly is a good read, and I hope you’ll give it the time it deserves.

    The artistic team is still delivering a wonderful book full of fantastic imagery, but the writing is starting to fall a little flat. The realization that Old Man Logan is on a quest, not only to find out what is the meaning of the Ultron head that fell from the sky, but also to find out how he fits into this larger BattleWorld, is very compelling. Where he ends up by the end of this issue makes me excited to find out how this series will reach it's completion. Read Full Review

    Old Man Logan #3 is connected by name to a great Wolverine story, and it doesn't quite measure up, but it is still a decent story that can be read outside of the main Secret Warsstory. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - Jim Johnson Jul 23, 2015

    "Old Man Logan" #3 benefits from Bendis' decompressed storytelling style, giving sufficient time to explore new landscapes as well as providing Sorrentino and Maiolo the time to render them. It's the kind of issue that takes advantage of the scope of "Secret Wars" and the diverse world that houses it. Read Full Review

    Comicsverse - Marius Thienenkamp Jul 24, 2015

    All in all, OLD MAN LOGAN #3 has gorgeous art, is not poorly written, but doesn't add anything for the character of Old Man Logan and feels extremely redundant. It feels like it's just there to show many different locations on Battleworld and is by far the weakest issue of this run so far. Read Full Review

    Superior Spider-Talk - Caleb Hennington Jul 26, 2015

    Old Man Logan #3 isn't a terrible entry in this series, but it's one that lacks any deep exploration of the characters within its beautifully drawn pages. The pattern of domain jumping has gotten stale, and needs to be abandoned if Bendis wants to keep readers interested. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jeff Lake Jul 23, 2015

    Though only three issues in, Old Man Logan has begun to feel a bit like a procedural, the series' "realm of the week" structure leading to all manner of set pieces but not much in the way of character. Read Full Review

    Old Man Logan #3 may be a step up from the last installment, but it's still not enough to save this failing tie-in. Despite having great potential, the constant jumping between settings means that we don't get the focus that we deserve, with the entire tone of this story relying on speculation and anticipation.

    The series as a whole so far has been uneven, and Ill go so far as saying I enjoyed issue one as much as I enjoyed the whole original series, but this needs to pick up. If we wanted to know about all the other domains in Battleworld wed be picking up those series (Im looking at you Age Of Apocalypse, Armor Wars, Marvel Zombies and Age of Ultron VS Marvel Zombies). As it stands, were as lost as Logan. Read Full Review

    It's really starting to feel like this book is setting things up for the upcoming OLD MAN LOGAN series after Secret Wars ends. There's a feeling of the story jumping around from place to place. Logan is making his way across different domains and we can assume he'll eventually arrive in what's to become the 616 world. Bendis is treating us to pitting Logan up against different versions of characters but the brief encounters leaves us wanting more. Sorrentino and Maiolo's art and colors are fantastic and keeps you glued to the issue. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Jul 23, 2015

    This is the weakest issue in the series so far, but Brian Michael Bendis is a good enough writer that you shouldnt worry. Even if you didnt like the story, the art was still pretty killer. We will all just have to wait and see if the series can rebound from its first mediocre issue. Read Full Review

    Fox Force Five News - Keven Skinner Jul 24, 2015

    I get it now this Old Man Logan run is the transitional series before he fires up yet another new, but ongoing run led by writer Jeff Lemire. I'm actually looking forward to that in spite of being annoyed so far by three lackluster issues. I loved Lemire's Animal Man when he made the reboot over at DC a few years ago so I know he'll do justice with Old Man Logan in October. I'm just pissed off that I had to have the Secret Wars shoved down my throat when I've been trying to avoid the entire situation. Read Full Review

    Comics like Old Man Logan #3 make me really upset, not because of any particular axes to grind - because as I've said, this team has done some amazing stuff - but out of a desire to see better comics. Comics shouldn't have to be disposable or pandering to the lowest common denominator. We should be ahead of the curve in terms of production values and storytelling technique. But instead, this is a comic that doesn't just fail to live up to the original, but it feels like it's not even trying to. Unfortunately, the saying is true - people vote with their wallets, and make no mistake, Old Man Logan will sell, regardless of quality or content, just based on the names of the creators and characters involved. Maybe that's the future we should be fearing - it's not just about the deaths of the superheroes. It's that we're the ones who are helping doing them in. Read Full Review
