Old Man Logan (2016)

Fifty years from now, Logan -- the man who no longer calls himself Wolverine -- will have endured many atrocities: The Marvel Universe's villains will have banded together and rid the world of its heroes. Logan's closest friend, Hawkeye, will have been murdered in cold blood right before his eyes. And driven mad by the same radiation that gave him ...

The ending was rushed and anticlimactic, with a resolution that was just too easy. Could probably have used an extra issue, or even just a few more pages to up the stakes over Gabby's transformation.

Was really disappointed in this issue. Had been looking towards the reunion of Laura and Logan, but this was just lazy writing. No explanation of how Laura traveled to the past. She also showed no emotion for being reunited with someone who's recent death highly affected her. Generations seems to be nothing but classic characters propping up replacement characters. Laura and Logan both deserve bet more

"An instant apart! A moment beyond! Loosed from the shackles of past, present, future -- a place where time has no meaning! But where true insight can be gained! Make your choice! Select your destination! This journey is a gift...." That's the explanation of the Vanishing Point on the summary page. I'm guessing this Vanishing Point event occurs during Secret Empire, but that hasn't been explained in that series either. So as a one-shot story that asking for $5, I expect more from Marvel.

Greatly improved after the stumbles of Enemy of the State, particularly with the addition of Leonard Kirk on art (though I'm not crazy about how he draws Laura's claws). Gabby's comments about Logan might stir controversy and raise eyebrows, but she does make a great point: Just because you CAN heal, doesn't mean you can't benefit from not having to (especially for Laura, who lacks Logan's sheer i more

Enemy of the State II hasn't been the strongest arc of the series, and the climactic showdown between Laura and her arch-nemesis doesn't play as strongly as it could have. Much of it is because Virella's artwork never really clicked, however there's also a lack of urgency here.

That may be the worst I've ever seen X-23 written, and I've now suffered through a Bendis/Hopeless 1-2 punch on All-New X-Men. And apparently the writer had no idea that Amadeus Cho and Laura already know each other (she kicked him in the balls during Fear Itself).

The story itself is moving along. Slow burner rather than explosive, but there's a few pieces that need to be moved into place, which this issue achieves. If there's a weakness it's the artwork. Virella feels like a pretty significant step back from Lopez, Takara, and Guarra, and it continues to frustrate that the book can't find a permanent art team.
