    Out of the hundred + comics I've reviewed on this blog so far, this is only the 2nd time I've given out a perfect score. That should say alot about how great this comic was. If you enjoy alternate world stories, Wolverine, Hawkeye, or good comic books in general, do yourself a huge favor, and pick up this, and the three preceding comics of this series, you won't be sorry!

    Wolverine #69 was another enjoyable read. This issue would have been more enjoyable if it has been shipped on time. Some readers will balk at the lack of plot progression and relatively lack of depth to the story in this issue. However, other readers will continue to enjoy this romp through Millar's nightmarish future of America. There is certainly enough action and adventure in this fast paced read that many readers will find entertaining. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Keith Dallas Nov 11, 2008

    I might be enjoying this story even more if it were a finite miniseries rather than a monthly ongoing title, but due to the self-contained nature of the story arc, there's essentially very little difference. As a regular reader of monthly superhero books, I'm used to creators spreading a story over multiple issues, and even if "Old Man Logan" looks as though it's been slightly stretched-out and padded (at this point, I can't see why the story needs eight issues), it at least feels as though it has been structured well as a complete story, with a beginning, middle and an end. At this point, I'm still keen to see how it plays out, and I'm hopeful that Millar's resolution of this issue's cliffhanger will really start to deliver on the story's potential. Read Full Review

    Weekly Comic Book Review - Kyle Posluszny Nov 13, 2008

    Old Man Logan, while action-packed at times, continues to employ slow-burn storytelling. While it works well enough for me (and I can mostly bear the wait), I suspect that most readers will find this issue a bit lacking, considering how long they had to wait for it. This may be a good book, but it doesn't exactly move the plot forward a whole lot. Read Full Review

    The Weekly Crisis - Kirk Warren Nov 13, 2008

    Delays hurt the book and the sweeping of SpiderBitch's story under the rug really hurt the opening of the book, but, once I got back into it, it was still just as entertaining as always. However, I'm giving it a Check It as I feel it's best to simply trade wait this one out and enjoy the story from start to finish without the delays. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Nov 16, 2008

    Some of the sharper moments in the issue come from Millar's character moments, but without a more concrete theme to hang those on, they remain little more than moments that contribute only to the tone of the story, not the substance of it. It's possible that Millar can pull a twist out of the bag in the next issue that redeems the series, and certainly I'm looking forward to finding out just what "they" did to Wolverine -- but it'll really need to be something special to make the last few issues worth the aimless, poorly-paced ramble through an alternate future that there's no reason to care about.
