So, in case you didn’t know I LOVE Old Man Logan and it’s my favourite ongoing comic right now, I love Sorrentino’s art, Jeff Lemire’s writing and Maiolo’s colours- this issue doesn’t disappoint. Minor spoilers ahead, so here we go!
This issue starts at a crawl action-wise however you get an insight into Logan’s character and that’s basically the point of this issue, the cover sort of promises a Hawkeye versus Logan but it’s more of an emotional issue than that. It seems that we’ll get a scene from Logan’s past every issue and I love it, these are especially great for people (like me) who haven’t read the original Old Man Logan and/or the Secret Wars miniseries,this makes the idea of his family being dead hits home more as you truly see how much he loved them.
As the issue progresses he seems more and more ruthless and the insertion of another character (Hawkeye) shows us that his activity isn’t normal and we are forced to actually question his actions and wonder whether we actually support him. We begin to truly understand that Logan is not willing to take any risks and is willing to ignore any evidence suggesting that this may not be his Earth. or not and the ending sets up an issue which will be either really dialogue-heavy or action packed. Either way, I’m looking forward to it.
Issue summary: An issue which is deep but light on action. 7.5/10.
