Review: Old Man Logan #39

PDFtoJPG.me-1Logan isn’t healing the way he used to. Something is wrong — recent fights are leaving their marks, in ways he’s never experienced before. Beaten down, Logan goes to the one people he thought he could always count on for help…The X-Men. But when an old pupil of Logan’s asks for his help, it’s Logan’s enemies who will learn the hardest lesson: This old dog still has bite.

It has been a long time since I last read a comic like Old Man Logan #39I don’t mean that in the way you probably expect, however; I don’t tend to read much from the House Of Ideas any more aside from Old Man Logan and the odd X-Men or Avengers offering, so it has been a long time since I read a comic that has echoes of Wolverine and the X-Men – a series that remains one of my all time favorite runs. Old Man Logan #39 brings back the feeling I got from the early issues of Wolverine and the X-Men as Logan heads to an X-Men outreach center in Central Park in a really heartwarming sequence as the young X-Men see their old mentor for the first time in awhile.

With Wolverine returning from the dead, and soon to return to the Marvel Universe properly, there’s a feeling within this series that Old Man Logan won’t be around for much longer; his deteriorating healing factor, and the way he handles himself amidst the other X-Men has the hallmarks of a Hallmark goodbye. Without the cheesy writing. Wolverine is the reason that I’m a comics fan, and unlike the Death Of Wolverine miniseries from a few years ago, Old Man Logan #39  seems positioned to give the (much older) Logan a very fitting send off.

Ironically, this issue is also an easy jumping on point  for those hankering for a bit of Old Man Logan action. Ed Brisson gives you enough context to enjoy the back and forth between Logan and the X-Men (though I have no idea why there’s an X-Mansion in Central Park, it doesn’t matter; why it is there is irrelevant to Old Man Logan #39), but it’s the return to what, personally, I consider the classic X-Men villain – the public that hates and fears them. Granted, I’m not as familiar with the current X-series as I could be, but this issue is one of the first times in the series that I’ve really felt a tangible connection to the X-Men – coincidentally, I’m sure – and reminded me why I used to love the X-Men so many years ago.

Whether Marvel is getting ready to retire Old Man Logan in favor of the younger model returning or not, this issue continues a trend of high quality entertainment for the series, and is well worth your time and dollar.

Graphic Policy’s Top Comic Picks this Week!

Wednesdays are new comic book day! Each week hundreds of comics are released, and that can be pretty daunting to go over and choose what to buy. That’s where we come in!

Each week our contributors are choosing up to five books and why they’re choosing the books. In other words, this is what we’re looking forward to and think you should be taking a look!

Find out what folks think below, and what comics you should be looking out for this Wednesday.

Joe

Top Pick: Venom #1 (Marvel) – Cates and Stegman on Venom! Yes! I am so excited for this book. The last run of Venom had its moments, but this looks like classic scary Venom mixed with the sometimes good guy inside. Can’t wait!

Barrier #1 (Image Comics/Panel Syndicate) – The team behind Private Eye, Vaughn and Martin reunite for a new title. Hell yes. This is a reprint of their web series they released before about illegal immigration and much more. It sounds awesome.

Runaways #9 (Marvel) – This is consistently one of my favorite reads every week and I’m glad to physically pull this book. If you’re a fan of the two old comic runs of this series or coming from the Hulu series there’s something to love.

Despicable Deadpool #300 (Marvel) – What a run it has been, Duggan! This is a super-sized issue to celebrate the merc with the mouth and Duggan’s farewell issue. I expect a lot of ridiculous humor and wtf moments.

Justice League: No Justice #1 (DC Comics) – I’m excited to see what they do with this new crazy multiple team approach to Justice League and how the series moves forward. The Justice League brand needs improvement and a way to get back to its glory days, so here’s hoping this is where it starts.

 

Alex

Old Man Logan #39 (Marvel) – I get the sense that with Wolverine returning to the Marvel universe that Old Man Logan’s time on this world is coming to a close – especially with his healing factor on the fritz. Watching the slow decline of an alternate version of one of my favorite characters is oddly enthralling.

Warhammer 40K: Deathwatch #1 (Titan) – I have no reason to want to read this beyond the cover, but sometimes that’s all that it take to pull you into a previously unfamiliar world…

 

Brett

Top Pick: Nuclear Winter Vol. 1 (BOOM! Studios) – I’ve read this cute graphic novel and it’s awesome. Basically a nuclear power plant blew and things are irradiated. So, how do you live under a nuclear winter? Find out in what I’m hoping will be many more volumes to come.

Barrier #2 (Image Comics/Panel Syndicate) – Joe picked the first issue and I’m going with the second. You should get both of these!! The series is amazing and an absolute must read.

Oblivion Song #3 (Image Comics/Skybound Entertainment) – The first two issue have been fantastic so far and the detail and use of real world situations have been brilliant.

Southern Bastards #20 (Image Comics) – A gut punch of an issue that had me tense throughout as I turned each page.

Star Trek: The Next Generation: Through the Mirror #2 (IDW Publishing) – The Mirror Universe comes over to the main one in this weekly series. The first issue was great and them mystery deepens. It’s a little slow but fantastic Star Trek for those that love the Mirror Universe.
