Review:

This is it! This is the last story arc in the ongoing Old Man Logan series! After this, we get the Dead Man Logan miniseries, which will most likely be the final exit of this character, as the youthful Wolverine has finally returned to Marvel just a month ago.

This three issue arc pits Logan against Maestro, an evil version of the Hulk from an alternate timeline in the future. This is not their first meeting but it does end up being their last. Well, one would assume with how this plays out.

Logan comes across this backwoods town and discovers that the people are controlled by fear, as Maestro has made it his tiny kingdom. Logan works to try and free the people from this mad and seemingly unstoppable tyrant.

One thing I wasn’t satisfied with, however, was that they have spent all this time building Maestro up as incredibly powerful but once Logan takes him out, it felt relatively easy. Can Wolverine decapitate a Hulk? I mean, even if he gets a boost from a drug that helps him, is Maestro not basically indestructible? That’s a real question because I’m not sure if that was established elsewhere.

Regardless of the conclusion being a let down, this is a solid story overall. Brisson is writing some good shit and the art of Ibraim Roberson really enhances the tone of the narrative. I also love the Andrea Sorrentino covers but everything he touches is gold, in my opinion.

While this ends the Old Man Logan title, it’s not the end of his story. Dead Man Logan starts now.

Rating: 7.5/10
Pairs well with: Other Old Man Logan stories.
