Re: Wolverine Old Man Logan

I've been waiting for the trade myself...I mostly flipped through the issues as they came out and wasn't really impressed. When issue one first came out Millar did an interview with Wizard where he compared Old Man Logan to Dark Knight Returns but it doesn't really feel that way. It is mostly just a really fucked up alternate reality story. Steve McNiven's art is beautiful as always but the story doesn't really compliment it, there's no build up to any thing major except for the end fight. The President mentioned I thought for some reason was Osborne but maybe I'm thinking too much of Alex Ross's Earth X. Mr. Light you forgot to mention Superman: Red Son which is maybe my favourite of Millar's non original stories. I've been meaning on picking up the Kick Ass trade.

I've actually never read Red Son but it's on my list. I'm waiting on the Kick Ass trade as well.

OK I did some wiki-reading and apparently the link is that
Also, "Clyde's Pit" is a reference to Clyde Wyncham's apparent prison. Wyncham pops up in both 1985 and FF, and his actions in 1985 are referenced in Kick-Ass.

Re: Wolverine Old Man Logan

Sorry to bump this, but I finally got around to picking this up after reading this thread awhile back.

I agree with lots of the criticisms. Too much stuff that kind of goes nowhere. It just touches on some interesting stuff then moves on and is forgotten. But in the end I enjoyed reading it.



Can anyone recommend any other elseworld type books? I enjoyed red son, gotham by gaslight, Marvel Ruins, the speeding bullet and I enjoyed Old Man Logan despite it's flaws, so I was hoping I could find some more. Marvel 1985 is probably next on my list.

Have your tried Marvel 1602?

I really enjoyed the first series, a great twist on classic Marvel, and quite gripping. The followup series have been so-so I think, but still, it's a fun and interesting alterverse.

And then of course there's Marvel Zombies, which may be an acquired taste. No pun intended.

Wolverine took a vow of non-violence?!?! How the heck did that happen?!
That's almost like Ron Jeremy taking a vow of chastity at the beginning of a movie or Jack Black vowing to be completely serious at the beginning of a movie. What a really stupid idea.
I actually thought it was a pretty good idea, myself. I think they might have overdone the reason a little, but the concept in of itself of Wolverine doing something like that was pretty interesting to see.

Thanks for the suggestion! After reading the description I actually opted to pick up 1602 instead of 85 and I'm enjoying it so far. (Although sometimes it makes me feel dumb when I figure out who the characters are really late.)

Forgot to mention Zombies as one of the books I liked, but it seemed to progressively get worse as the series went on. I'm not sure if it was just because I wasn't familiar with the characters in the later books.

Forgive my ignorance, but I don't keep up on comics...did not Wolverine have his metal ripped from his bones by Magetio? And what happened to ol' Maggy?

^Yeah, but that was like twenty years ago. I actually have no idea how he got it back, but it was a long time ago...

It wasn't that long ago.

As for how he got it back I don't know either.

Off to Wikipedia!

Re: Wolverine Old Man Logan

I followed this series monthly and I really enjoyed it. I'm sure that in trade format it seems really dead, but when you had to wait for it, the tension for Wolverine to pop his claws was so thick that when he did, it was a big "Fuck Yeah" moment for me. I had been waiting over 6 months for it to happen, so it was great.

Plus I doubt that the super soldier serum was actually real.
