    Wolverine #72 was an incredibly entertaining read. Millar and McNiven deserve plenty of praise for their work on "Old Man Logan." Wolverine #72 offers a delightful mix of action, drama, good character work and well crafted dialogue. There is something for everyone in this issue. Wolverine #72 is definitely worth the cover price. I definitely recommend getting this issue. Read Full Review

    Um, if you aren't reading this storyline, my advice would be to run out to your local comic shop and buy the this series! This gets my highest recommendation. Read Full Review

    The latest part of “Old Man Logan” may just be the best yet in some ways. It isn't deep, but it sure is a hell of a lot of fun. The visuals are memorable, the Red Skull is awesome, and the shit…well it finally gets real. Read Full Review

    IGN - Jesse Schedeen May 27, 2009

    This issue is a wild, crazy ride from start to finish. The final pages are some of the strongest of the entire story. At the same time, they lead me to wonder how Millar will be able to fill an entire Giant-Size issue. I have no choice but to assume the writer still has a few curve-balls to toss out before the end. Giant-Size Old Man Logan will probably be a quick read, just as the rest have been, but I have no doubt it'll serve as a worthy end-cap to "Old Man Logan". This isn't deep storytelling, but darned if it isn't entertaining every step of the way. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Bin - Zach Bowen Jun 6, 2009

    I consider this issue to be the best of the Old Man Logan so far. While I do not believe to be on par with other future storylines like The Dark Knight Returns or Future Imperfect, Millar has delivered a story that will be remember as one of Wolverines classics. Read Full Review

    Comics Bulletin - Paul Brian McCoy May 26, 2009

    This is definitely one to pick up when the inevitable oversized hardback is released. McNiven's art will be even more gorgeous than it is already, and the story will read even better all in one sitting. Granted, if you haven't been reading already, you probably aren't going to be motivated to pick up this issue and all the back issues (especially not in this economy), but this is really worth the time and money.

    . This will probably read a million times better in trade and I actually regret picking it up in singles now. Momentum has been sapped and, while pretty, it's a very cliched Mark Millar story on top of it all. Read Full Review

    Comic Book Resources - James Hunt Jun 2, 2009

    With one chapter left, it seems unlikely that Millar has any massive tricks up his sleeve that can redeem his meandering, flippant story. It's almost worth reading for McNiven's art alone -- but not quite. It'll undoubtedly make a far more satisfying read when the collected edition is released, but after a solid year since the story began and the likelihood of yet more waiting for the finale one-shot, you have to wonder what everyone was complaining about when Marvel released #73 first. At this point, wouldn't we rather they just got on with the rest of the series? Read Full Review

    The Comic Addiction - Antony Ellis May 25, 2009

    I’m happy that Old Man Logan finally seems to be wrapping up, and I’m of little doubt that Millar’s “opus” will read better in trade form where the lengthy delays won’t have slowed the pace to a crawl (for example – I forgot Logan was after cash for his family due to the time since the first issue was published). It’s still worth a look but for a huge X-Men fan like me, it’s of little relevance to the ongoing adventures of Wolverine and the X-Men. Read Full Review
