4 months ago, Brian Michael Bendis took us on a magical tour of Battleworld in the Old Man Logan comic series. The comic, which was supposed to be about Wolverine finding a Ultron head in his region and trying to figure out how it got there has taken many detours in the last few months. We have been placed in the Age of Apocolypse. We have gone to Armor Wars. We have seen the Thors in action. Now, we are in the middle of the zombie apocolypse. But, throughout it all, we have been left wondering "what is this series even about?". Now, this could be a bad thing for most other comics. But, for this comic, it's all about the action and watching Old Man Logan tangle with beings that he has never confronted before. That's not always a bad thing.

In The Deadlands, Logan meets another old friend and they team up for some classic zombie killing fun (not going to spoil that surprise!). They of course take on some zombies and win, and Logan by the end of the issue ends up in yet another region of Battleworld. Bendis does give some decent writing in this issue, and the art again by Andrea Sorrentino is quite good and helps us to witness the rage that we have lost in the regular Marvel universe following the death of Logan. Now don't get me wrong. This entire series is pointless. There is no plot development at all, because there is no plot to develop. It's just action, action, action. The series may as well be called "Where in Battleworld is Old Man Logan?" But, regardless of how it is, the comic is still fun. Old Man Logan is one of those series you know isn't great, but find yourself following anyway. With only one issue left, we have to wonder will Logan ever find Doom to ask him "where did that Ultron head come from?". By the time he reaches Doom, will he even remember what the purpose of this quest even was. If so, can he explain it to the readers. The Art alone will keep some invested till the end, but if you're looking for a worthy sequel to OML's original run, this isn't it. I know it sounds like I have nothing good to say about this series, but it still isn't a horrible book. I give this issue a 6 out of 10.
