In 2008, Mark Miller gave us a future where Wolverine had quit being a hero after the destruction of virtually every Marvel hero that existed. The pain caused by the slaughter of the X-men was too much to bear, especially when he realized he had caused the slaughter himself. He became an outlaw. he became the Marvel version of "The Man with no Name". He became "Old Man Logan". Now, he is back, and this time he is in the Wastelands of Battleworld, in the midst of Secret Wars.
Brian Michael Bendis takes over the reigns of this story, which is a direct sequel to the saga that ran from 2008 to 2009 for 8 total issues(which included an annual). Now, we have Logan being the outlaw, who is in charge of making sure that nobody is hurt, and being the law in a area of Battleworld that has no actual law enforcement. The comic doesn't have the flow of the original set, but it's still quite a fun read which will keep readers entertained for the full 4-issue run. . Their Logan is both vicious and heavy, weighted down by the things he's done and the things he's yet to do. Some pacing issues pop up early, but they're quickly corrected by some intriguing developments. The series also opens the door to the character of Wolverine, who is technically making his first appearance this issue following his death last year. Is it possible that this might be the Logan that returns to the Marvel universe following Secret wars? We will have to wait and see on that one. But, as a whole this comic series has a lot of potential, and I am curious to see where it goes from here. I give this book a 8 out of 10, and I insist that all comic fans give this a shot(regardless if you ever read the original storyline).
