Morning BS: Why read Mar Millar’s Old Man Logan In 250 words or less

With Logan blowing up in cinemas, now is the time to jump into the world of Old Man Logan.

The nature of Wolverine suggests that he will always be around, kicking ass and taking names, with his healing factor and adamantium skeleton at the ready. There is no end to his story because he can’t die. That’s what most comic book fans suggested anyway. However, mark Millar begged to differ, suggesting that while Logan cannot be killed Wolverine can, as Wolverine represents the heroic side of Logan. This is the basis of the Old Man Logan storyline as we see villains take over the world and break Wolverine by tricking him into killing his fellow X-Men. This sets Logan on a different path of pacifism. He finds a wife and settles down as villains overrun the world.

It’s only as the villains turn their eye to Logan and his family that he decides to go on one last adventure across America, alongside a blind version of Hawkeye. This adventure is told in the spectacular style of Steve McNiven and Mark Millar who bring a fantastic blend of pulse pounding action and realism to the drama. It’s a character defining arc for Logan, as we drill down into the core of his character. However, if you’re a comic book fan then you’ll find dozens of references to other comic book characters throughout. It’s a tour de force for Millar and belongs on any comic book fans shelf.

I’ve got a few words left so I’ll just say this: Mad Max meets True Grit…what more could you want?

You can pick Old Man Logan in graphic novel form for £22.50 from Amazon
