    3.5 stars For a Secret Wars tie-in, this wasn't bad. Really, anytime you have these tie-ins, they're usually shit. I mean, they're money grabs that don't normally add anything important to the overall event. Most of the time. But this one is a bit different, because (Old Man) Logan is now in the 616 universe, so at the very least, Warzones shows the how and why. Well, sorta... See the art? Yeah, well...it fits the story. It's choppy, disorienting, and feels like it has a schizophrenic narrator. I mean 3.5 stars For a Secret Wars tie-in, this wasn't bad. Really, anytime you have these tie-ins, they're usually shit.

But, honestly, I thought it would be a whole helluva lot worse. For what it was, it wasn't bad, and it made me want to read more about the new version of this crazy old bastard.

Logan truly has had it rough. Despite being old, Logan rolls with it. I like the Old Logan because he's similar to Wolverine, but slightly more cautious. He's a guy who would rather be left alone yet he refuses to back down. He's just a fun character. Old Man Logan is definitely one of the best Secret Wars miniseries. 3.5 out of 5 stars

    Old Man Logan: Warzones is a sequel to Mark Millar and Steve McNiven’s fantastic original Wolverine story as well as a tie-in to Jonathan Hickman’s Secret Wars. Brian Michael Bendis writes this time around with artist Andrea Sorrentino and it’s an ok book, which actually puts it above the majority of the terrible Secret Wars comics! Old Man Logan finds an Ultron head in the desert and sets out to discover where it came from, a journey that takes him the length and breadth of Doom’s Battleworld.

Old Man Logan finds an Ultron head in the desert and sets out to discover where it came from, a journey that takes him the length and breadth of Doom’s Battleworld. If you’re planning on reading Secret Wars and its tie-ins, Old Man Logan is one of the best books to read first. It doesn’t have a strong story but it does introduce the layout and rules of Battleworld pretty well. We meet the Thors, Doom’s police, as well as the X-Men realm, Tony Stark’s Technopolis, and the Deadlands (home to the Marvel Zombies). Andrea Sorrentino’s art is amazing, particularly the smoky landscapes of Logan’s western/desert home, and the action looks appropriately visceral and violent for a Wolverine comic. I definitely enjoyed the art far more than Bendis’ unimpressive script and barely-existent story, though he does write a good Logan. Old Man Logan is worth a look if you’re a fan of that version of the character, and it tees up the great ongoing series by Sorrentino and Jeff Lemire, but of the three Old Man Logan books so far published, Bendis’ addition is definitely the weakest.

    Could not pass up this deal! Picked up this digital collection for only $1.80. Plus volumes 1, 2, 3, & 4 for $1.80 each. Had to pay $2.20 for volume 5. From #25 on i stated to collect Old Man Logan in paper comic format. What a mind warping ultra violent story! Cannot wait to catch up on Old Man Logan.

    Nothing special. I enjoyed the original Old Man Logan miniseries but this just felt off. Also not a big fan of the art.

    Another Secret Wars miniseries that's based on a previous miniseries that I haven't read. This is, as far as I can tell, essentially a continuation of the original Wolverine: Old Man Logan mini, with the sole change that it's all now happening on Doom's Battleworld. Ok, I can go with that. I just wish that there was more story here, because there isn't much of one.

It's more like Logan's aimless traveling through a handful of the Battleworlds, and it feels like this was just written to justify bringing Old Man Logan into the mainstream Marvel U after Secret Wars is done. What saves this book is that Logan himself is written very well, even if his story isn't really going anywhere. And the art is remarkable, striking and distinctive in all the right ways. I have a good feeling that if I'd already read and loved the original Old Man Logan book, I'd like this one better, but it's a little late for that now.

    6.0/10 Not bad, not bad. Old man Logan is a great story by Mark Millar and in my opinion it didn't need any sequel. But that's not Marvel's opinion. Six years after Old man Logan Marvel decided to release a sequel and we see what Wolverine is up to after slaying gang Hulk. It is a fairly interesting story, which was a nice suprise, but not as good as the original. The art is also worse. So yeah, it keep it my interest and i will continue with the next volume. 6.0/10 Not bad, not bad. Old man Logan is a great story by Mark Millar and in my opinion it didn't need any sequel.

    During his stint at Marvel during the noughties, Mark Millar concluded his brief run on the Wolverine ongoing series with Old Man Logan, a miniseries about the character depicted as an aging pacifistic family man living in an alternate future universe where super villains overthrew the super heroes.

Conceived very much like Marvel’s What If comics, Millar, along with artist Steve McNiven crafted a post-apocalyptic western that was dark, violent and over-the-top, as well as a final send-off to a character who regains his heroism and learns to snikt again. As a tie-in to the 2015 big event miniseries Secret Wars, Brian Michael Bendis continues the adventures of this beloved version of a fan-favourite X-Man. Riding on a horse through the Wastelands and slashing his way through baddies who discriminate the names of his Marvel buddies, Logan discovers the head of an old Ultron model and thus travels through the landscape to uncover the truth behind this metallic artefact. Right away, from the above synopsis, this book doesn’t quite have the hook like the Millar/McNiven one did, which was a buddy road-trip based on a life-and-death deadline. Although Bendis is no stranger to mature content – for those who read his Daredevil run – he’s not quite the cynical writer like Millar is, this not being criticism towards the both of them. Despite being a nice return to this bleak future, Bendis is more interested in showcasing it than he is with the characters as he crams so many Easter eggs in all five issues, it’s his excuse for the lack of plot. The book is certainly not without its moments as it is a continuation of what came before such as witnessing some of this universe’s versions of known Marvel characters such as a Thor of the Thor Corps, as well as the true reveal of Emma Frost. As for the eponymous hero who is a character that has lived for decades and been through many forms of hell, there was the potential for an arc about how he gets a second chance to be with his X-family, and yet the writing feels more like Logan being shoehorned into the main Marvel continuity, due to what’s been going on in Battleworld. The best thing about this comic is without a doubt Andrea Sorrentino’s art, which is just amazing, ranging from the stunning western landscapes to the out-there character designs that allow a bleak sensibility to the Marvel iconography. Experimenting with panel layouts, Sorrentino presents dynamic action sequences with Logan violently hacking his way against a variety of different super-powered people. Functioning more as a Secret Wars tie-in, it suffers, but this is a fun enough re-intro to Old Man Logan and his world that is bloody yet spectacular, largely due to Andrea Sorrentino’s art. Excited to see what Jeff Lemire will do during his current run.

    This was epic, and I can so see an ornery older Wolverine just not settling for what Doom has to offer in the form of the Battleworld. It was fun seeing him interact with the other heroes from the other worlds. Although I wish I knew what order that these should be read in...perhaps I should look up the original release date for each volume of Warzones!

If you've read Old Man Logan, he basically leaves where he lives (the reason really isn't important) and discover that the world has changed. Each issue Logan ends up in a different part of Battleworld (the world made up of different pieces from across the Marvel multi-verse). Each issue he gets to a different part via walking, falling, being thrown, carried, etc. Each issue he meets up with different versions of heroes and villains that he knows and each conversation is basically: Logan: What's going on? Something not right. Other: You don't look/act like you should be. Logan usually ends up Snikt'ing and Schuck'ing one or more people/things. The art is pretty visceral and isn't bad, fitting the tone well, but the story is really just a walkthrough of at least some of the different pieces of the world, and then you end up with OML getting where Marvel needs him to be. That's it and I'm not sure it should have taken that many issues to get there.

    Introduction to Old Man Logan's presence in Marvel's new universe after Secret Wars. Yeah, ok, why not? 5 issues to do so? I think not. Even the numerous textless sequences seemed long and vain. Basically Logan gets pointlessly beaten up from one Battleworld section to another before meeting the local X-Men, leading to him getting back to Earth-616. A 3 parter would have been much better.

    3.5 stars Haven't read Secret Wars, but I have an idea of what it was about. This one is a tie-in to the event, and has the Logan from Mark Millar and Steve McNiven's heart-wrenching epic flung (literally) from one world to another meeting different versions of X-Men and other superheroes. Being a tie-in, it does not have a clear standalone plot. But I loved the art by Andrea Sorrentino. A particular moment in the end when he meets his son from another dimension really got to me. 3.5 stars Haven't read Secret Wars, but I have an idea of what it was about.

    One of the best Secret Wars limited series. It is gorgeous, dark, and it's a strong follow-up to the original title. It started off near perfect, although in later issues I was feeling like the whole Secret Wars setting was mostly getting in the way of the story. Honestly, this is the case with almost all other SW tie-ins, and I just got very tired of the whole Doom-is-a-god-but-characters-suspect-he's-not premise.

    Old Man Logan bounces around Battleworld for a few issues, alternately getting his tiny mind blown and fighting a lot. Brian Michael Bendis has essentially put Logan into the readers' point of view of this whole Secret Wars business, pointlessly jumping from realm to realm, wondering what the Hell is going on, wondering if there's any point to any of it and wondering when it's going to end. The artwork was nice but more than a little derivative of Jae Lee.

    Another Secret Wars tie-in, Old Man Logan reintroduces this alternate future version of Wolverine by way of Unforgiven. Here, after witnessing an Ultron bot crash-land, of a make and model he's never seen before, Logan goes on the hunt for answers. But, in order to find these answers, he must cross the Wall, a massive architectural feat separating his region from the rest of Battleworld (Doom's hodgepodge Earth-like construct collecting all the various Marvel realities into one world). Passage be Another Secret Wars tie-in, Old Man Logan reintroduces this alternate future version of Wolverine by way of Unforgiven.

But, in order to find these answers, he must cross the Wall, a massive architectural feat separating his region from the rest of Battleworld (Doom's hodgepodge Earth-like construct collecting all the various Marvel realities into one world). Passage between realms is strictly forbidden, and his crossing the wall earns Logan a shocking visit from a Thor (Doom's version of global police). Brian Michael Bendis takes on writing duties in this five-issue series, picking up with Old Man Logan in the wake of the popular Old Man Logan mini-series from some years back by Mark Millar. I dug Millar's series, and thankfully Bendis does a good job of bringing back some of that charm. This particular volume is basically a Western-stylized road-trip, and it's neat to see this version of Logan interact with various alternate reality takes on the X-Men mythos, like the Age of Apocalypse and the current time-displaced line-up of the original five. This book is fun, but in terms of writing, it's far from perfect. The whole Ultron gimmick is nothing more than a MacGuffin. And, since this is a tie-in to an event whose repercussions can only be a short-lived bit of entertainment, there's little need for resolution of this volume's story itself and Bendis knows that. The dude doesn't even try and give us any actual resolution. Literally none of this stuff matters in the grander scheme of things, but since Old Man Logan is now a central character in the Marvel Universe proper, this is a neat way of getting him from point A to point B with as little fuss as possible. So, story-wise it's flawed by still entertaining. I can overlook a lot for a good, blood-soaked Wolverine story done up in a Clint Eastwood Western pastiche, and there's plenty of SNIKT per page to keep me happy here. The real reason to dig this book, though, is the artwork by Andrea Sorrentino, and Marcelo Maiolo's colors. I discovered Sorrentino during his run with Jeff Lemire on Green Arrow and was blown-away. His layouts are dynamic and hyper-cool, and Maiolo brings Andrea's pencils to bold, provocative life. I mean, look at that freaking sky! I flat-out love Sorrentino's work, and there's five issues worth of beauty's like the above. To top it all off, he and Jeff Lemire are doing the new, post-Secret Wars Old Man Logan on-going, so I'll be all over that one soon enough.

    Easiest way to judge this miniseries would be to compare it with Mark Millar's original or to detest it as another pretext to milk money off Logan movie.

In fact, I am excited for the Doom-Latveria else world combination, which worked so well with Marvel1602. Edgy artwork is commendable for the styling, but the fight sequences look nothing less a muck than the ones in Transformers franchise, making you squint to make sense of panels. Those first person free falling panels were pretty cool, though. I actually look forward for more of Parallel Dimension Terminatoring Old Man Logan, and Jeff Lemire's name looks like an added bonus.

    Having read Old Man Logan recently, this probably scores higher than it deserves. The opening issue of this volume is great, reintroducing the older version of Logan and his future, following up on the plot lines from the end of the previous story like his little Hulk baby, before he sets out to investigate a flying Ultron head which brings him back to Emma Frost.

It's the middle three issues that are almost a) all the same and b) totally pointless. Old Man Logan literally gets kicked, punched, and thrown across the barriers between Battleworld's domains for no reason other than to prove 'there's something wrong here that wasn't wrong before'. It's nice to see the different areas, but it essentially feels like a whistle-stop tour of reasons to be reading other Secret Wars books instead, which is surely a mistake. It'd probably score lower, but any book drawn by Andrea Sorrentino automatically gets high marks, because his layouts are insane, as are the gory details he manages to pack in. He and colourist Marcelo Maiolo work 100% in synch, and it creates something absolutely wonderful to look at. Final verdict: Could have been done in 3 issues rather than 5, but artwork saves it from being a total waste of time. Plus, the new ongoing series is by Jeff Lemire and Sorrentino, who worked wonders on Green Arrow, so there's that to look forward to.

    I only read it because it had the name Old Man Logan on the cover and I believe that was their intention too. The book had a rather okay-ish story, nothing extraordinary like the initial Logan comic. I might even say, this doesn't even deserve the lofty tag. It adds little to the existing mythology, it's only here to show how Logan came to be the Main Marvel Universe. Brian Michael Bendis is a strong writer. But his talent was wasted here, this is not the stuff we fans were looking for. The art I only read it because it had the name Old Man Logan on the cover and I believe that was their intention too.

I am personally a fan of clear art and breathtaking colors, this sketchy style doesn't much interest me. Bleh.

    So this just really confused me. Logan just kept waking up and finding himself in a different universe is what I am gathering. He wants to meet doom and Emma Frost believes he is the only one to stop doom. I wanted more about the Hulks, I think an army of Hulks is absolutely terrifying, don't you? Anyway, the art is really the reason to read this volume. This whole series of comics has marvelous art. So this just really confused me.

    This was the first of the Secret Wars crossovers I've read that actually takes place in more than one "warzone." Other than Logan doing some dimension hopping, not much was going on. The art was really great, and the story seemed to have potential it never quite reached. The atmosphere alone made it pretty cool. It felt like a Weird Western although that angle was never followed up. It wasn't the most relevant series, but it was still decent and I'm looking forward to the ongoing series.

    ORIGINALLY POSTED: http://bibliomantics.com/2015/11/30/m... Old Man Logan returns in this new Marvel series to take on Battleworld. Sure, it’s no Mark Millar’s Old Man Logan, but the arc has some of the charm of its original predecessor, which really shines when Wolverine travels through the other areas of the patchwork planet.

    I don't really get the acclaim for this book. For the original Mark Millar story, that I get. This didn't really feel like a Bendis book at all. There was very little characterization or dialogue. Both are Bendis trademarks. This was just Old Man Logan appearing in a different world each issue and duking it out with various generic versions of villians. I give it 3 "meh's". I don't really get the acclaim for this book.

    Old Wolverine visits an alternate timeline Earth in which Doom seems to be in charge and all the heroes are slightly different. Feels like Red Son Superman: everything is superficially different but exactly the same in all the worst ways.

    I read Old Man Logan by Mark Millar last year and absolutely loved it! Easily in the top 5 Marvel stories, I have ever read. And this is the continuation. And I gotta say, I wasn't a huge fan. All of the characters are done really well by Bendis. I especially liked the dynamic between Logan and Emma Frost. Logan still dealing with his past life and trying to adapt to this new shitstorm of a world is all really great. The best sequence in the book is one where Logan gets sent to essentially a ver I read Old Man Logan by Mark Millar last year and absolutely loved it!

I especially liked the dynamic between Logan and Emma Frost. Logan still dealing with his past life and trying to adapt to this new shitstorm of a world is all really great. The best sequence in the book is one where Logan gets sent to essentially a version of hell and meets up with someone he hasn't seen in a long ass time. This sequence is really down to earth and just the most entertaining for me. And at the end, Logan meets someone else, who he never thought he would ever see. Those 2 scenes were the best for me. Unfortunately, the story structure and pacing were noooot at all to my liking. Everything moved waaaaaayyy to fast, characters just seem to do things for unclear reasons, and a lot of the time I didn't even understand what was going on. There are so many scatterbrained sequences where I was actaully getting a little frustrated reading them because everything is just going a gazillion miles an hour and again character motivations are non-existent sometimes. I'd say I know I didn't really like this book too much because it doesn't make me want to read more. There are 2 great scenes, the characters are done well, the art is impressive, but its story structure and pacing really brought it down. Letter Grade: (C+)

    I left comics just before this series began because of a move to another part of the world, so coming back to the Old Man Logan of these graphic novels is a return without background, without context, and Warzones! is a fucking confusing way to start. I imagine I would have enjoyed it more with context, but I am hoping this zero issue will provide enough context for me to enjoy the future volumes. What I liked: Not much, actually, but at least the art was impressive.

What I liked: Not much, actually, but at least the art was impressive. And I did like the characterization and importance of Emma Frost. What I didn't like: The Warzones themselves, all under a Godlike Victor von Doom, just seem overbaked to me. Mjolnirs are everywhere, even War Machine is "a Thor," each zone has its own Warlord, bla, bla, bla. It's an idea that might have been brilliant with all new characters in their own universe outside of Marvel, but feels cheesy as hell in the confines of even a splintered and alternate Marvel Universe.
