    Old Man Logan #5 was the perfect way to conclude a series that had both amazing highs and disappointing lows. With more character development, and some truly heartbreaking moments, Bendis and team have managed to give this hardened version of Logan some much needed emotion. Read Full Review

    All, in all, OLD MAN LOGAN (2015) #5 is an artistically wonderful, well-executed finale to a book that had serious problems in its middle. It does so much to its main character, and it also does a wonderful job at building a bridge between the original Mark Millar story, SECRET WARS, and the new OLD MAN LOGAN ongoing title " in short: OLD MAN LOGAN #5 is a must-buy.

    It is truly awesome to see Old Man Logan come face to face with the friends he once murdered - the same friends that recently lost Wolverine in a different reality. Yet the story problems continue to compound more and more, which leaves us with a final issue that creates more questions than it answers. Read Full Review

    The good ultimately outweighs the bad (even in the exposition scenes there are some terrific character interactions), but the emotional teeter-totter is frustrating. Read Full Review

    The Hub City Review - Matthew J. Theriault Oct 11, 2015

    That scene, just another vignette among many in this series, is emblematic of Bendis Old Man Logan as a whole: a failed attempt to pull emotional resonance out of not characters or plot, but rather the readers knowledge of and appreciation for Marvels past continuity and future publishing plans. It was a fun failure, redeemed to an extent by Sorrentinos art, but it will ultimately not stand the test of time next to the story arc which inspired it. Read Full Review

    All-Comic - Jeremy Matcho Oct 8, 2015

    As we say goodbye to another mini-series, this is one that should have fans excited. Old Man Logan in the regular Marvel Universe should make for a ton of great interactions. Brian Michael Bendis did some good things with this series and definitely paved the way for this character to be a favorite again. The art has been consistently good throughout the entire run and the credit absolutely goes to Sorrentino and Maiolo. This was a pretty good book that may bring around people who arent Bendis fans.

    Black Nerd Problems - L.E.H. Light Oct 9, 2015

    And that's my final critique of this issue: nothing seems to happen. Logan lands. Emma explains. There's an implied or suggested ending to the Secret Wars event, then Logan is dropped back into a world just like ours, off to do"whatever it is Logan does. After being taken on a tour of so many domains, to imply an ending without giving me one is anti-climactic and leaves me feeling like this was all a set-up to get me to read the main Secret Wars title " Which I'm doing any way. I'm unsatisfied and Emma Frost, well-written angst, and beautiful art can't quite make up for that. Read Full Review
