    Just sit back, buckle up and hang on as if a crazy blindman was driving this thrill ride of a story. It's going to be one hell of a fun time. Read Full Review

    Another great chapter in Old Man Logan. Millar continues to surprise me. Worth picking up if you are a Wolverine fan or just like seeing another version of the future America. If you like this story, you might want to try Kazuo Koike and Goseki Kojima's Lone Wolf and Cub. It is a classic story set in feudal Japan. Read Full Review

    In the end, the story is pretty much a gussied up What If tale. That's a turn off for a lot of people that prefer content that'll have an impact outside of that particular title. Not me though. Give me a well-executed story (even if superfluous in nature) with pretty pictures to go along, and I'll be happy. Read Full Review

    I mentioned last month that this comic is worth buying just for McNiven's art, and it is, but it's also developed into a story worth reading. It's a crazed story of a nonsensical future that's becoming more absurdly fun each month. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Ariel Carmona Jr./David Wallace Aug 26, 2008

    I'm still interested in seeing what Millar has planned for Wolverine, and how he plans to explore the defining event that led him to give up the superhero life - but there's very little character examination of any depth in this particular issue, and I suspect that the plot developments that we do get are going to be fairly inconsequential in terms of the story's bigger picture. As with many paced-for-the-trade story arcs, I get the sense that some of the middle issues of "Old Man Logan" may turn out to be a little more padded than they need to be - although you could perhaps argue that my impatience for Millar to get to the meat of his story is a reflection of the strength of his central concept, the layers of which are gradually being peeled away rather than having all of its secrets revealed to us all at once.

    Major Spoilers - Matthew Peterson Sep 15, 2008

    Hmm... I don't quite know what to make of this issue. A pacifist Wolverine, one who only wants to pay his rent and be left alone is kind of interesting, in a Spaghetti Western kinda way, but the story seemingly makes it obvious that he's going to have to give up his vow of non-violence tosave his brother from Chin-Wa who won't let him get rice cakes for fatherHawkeye from his own murderous spawn. Even having not read the first two issues of the story, there's still a pretty clear idea of what's going on here, and everything that needs to be spelled out is spelled out, barring a strange bit about the Moloids being Earth's immune system and destroying the human infestation.As for the art(by Steve McNiven and Dexter Vines) it's pretty good, though my usual complaint of McNiven's bulldog faces still shows up periodically. The big swerve at the end was a bit telegraphed, but still nicely executed and Ashley's murder of the Kingpin on panel did give me a bit of a shock. I Read Full Review
