Man, oh, man… this was absolute dog shit!
I’ve loved just about every story arc under the Old Man Logan banner but leave it to Brian Michael Bendis to write a clusterfuck of biblical proportions that makes no sense whatsoever and pretty much takes a shit on the stellar work of Old Man Logan writers Mark Millar and Ed Brisson.
However, the art is pretty damn good but Andrea Sorrentino has a unique and dynamic style that makes even the worst stories look good. Without Sorrentino’s art, I would have given this bag of crap a 1 out of 10.
This whole story is some sort of hallucinatory mind fuck, which can work but just doesn’t here. Bendis is trying to be too ambitious for his own limitations and it shows.
There is no reason to read this. It adds nothing to the Old Man Logan story or mythos and just serves to confuse the reader.
Don’t buy this, don’t read it for free and in fact, just stay away from it. If someone gives you a free copy, roll joints with it.
Full disclosure, I quit reading about halfway through and then just thumbed through it to admire Sorrentino’s art.
Pairs well with: a bad LSD trip while touring an asylum during art day.
