Wolverine
A failure from the past haunts Logan - and to correct his mistakes, he'll need magical assistance! But when he faces opposition, the man who was once Wolverine will turn to an unlikely - and potentially treacherous - ally! Will an encounter with the young Spider-Man, Miles Morales, convince Logan to alter his path? Or will a time-torn trip through his past lives - from his youth in the 1800s, to his first encounter with the Hulk, to his stint with the X-Men - derail Logan's mission completely? Spiraling through his own living memories, and forced to relive moments both poignant and painful, will Logan be tempted to try to put right what once went wrong? And what will the consequences be?COLLECTING: OLD MAN LOGAN 19-24

Wolverine Review

    Old Fart Logan takes a trip through his past with the help of a magical amulet. Not so much bad as entirely pointless. It's not often I finish a book and wish I could get the time it took to read it back but this was one of those rare times.

    Jeff Lemire phones in a pointless, forgettable story about Wolverine visiting past times of his life while unable to change anything. Andrea Sorrentino has also flown the coop and left us with a couple of turds to provide the art. Filipe Andrade's art is so bad, he may have actually drawn it with a turd. Eric Nguyen isn't much better. Marvel seems to employ a lot of subpar artists these days. I'm starting to miss the "house" style of decades past.

    Not one of the better Old Man Logan collections, but at last I have caught up. I started this series with #25 and I am still collecting it. Next up is to back track and read the issues leading up to Wolverine's so called death. As if Marvel would kill off Wolverine, even if they Old Man Logan to replace him. No, sooner or later our current Logan will make a return and it should be fun to see the two Logans in the same story.

Reliving memories is always interesting and I loved the moment where he sees his family again. It's both sad and tragic and full circle for his character. Also him asking every hero for help was funny. Bad: It feels like running through the motions. That the old man logan knows his place and is saying it's okay to live his life from now on the way he doesn't look back on the past. Been there done that. Overall another decent, fun, but unremarkable volume. Sure, ten times better than volume 4 but still nothing special. A 2.5 out of 5. I'll hit it with a 3 though for the art.

    Old Man Logan being who he is, thick as a brick that is, decides to free a D-List character (Asmodeus, never heard of him) with some magic powers to send him back in the Wastelands to save one Banner kid from his fate. Of course Asmowhatchamacallit tricks him and OML is in for a rerun of his greatest hits. It seems pointless but it finally brings closure to Logan's memories and life in the Wastelands.

That's the consolation of an otherwise average story. Some scenes are rather fun when Lemire gently mocks the weird dialogues/ideas of his predecessors (Why would I ever think an eyepatch was a good disguise? Why, indeed?) but apart from a nostalgia feeling and the notion that you can't change the past it doesn't go above the anedotic. Coupled to some very disappointing art- I do like Filipe Andrade on the first two issues but Eric Nguyen really sucks in his poor-man's Jock impersonation on the following four-and you get an unmemorable OML volume.

    3.5 stars but I rounded up because it is good as a final volume. Old man Logan is convinced he need to rescue baby hulk from the wasteland he came from, except all the x-men say no. I actually laughed because I would like to think Lemire was making a jab at all the time travel in the x-men lately. But... eventually he finds someone (no spoilers) to help him but he gets more than he bargains for. After a cool series of "greatest hits" moments in the life of wolverine he ends up back in the 3.5 stars but I rounded up because it is good as a final volume.

I enjoyed Lemire writing this series and it was a tough transition to bring him into the current time frame so all and all it was a good run. The art was various artists but all did a great job.

    Wasn't the Original Old Man Logan story set in a different universe? And if the multiverse was destroyed during Secret Wars, shouldn't that universe have been destroyed too? This book was really disappointing. Logan asks a supervillain to take him to his own timeline and gets betrayed(duh!!), only to realize that he can't change the past. But isn't it technically the future? Ugh!The only reason it does not get 2 stars is the ending.

    last trade for Lemire's Old Man Logan run, which have been hit and miss at times, this one is a hit ! Wolverine wants to go back in time to change some wrongs, but of course something goes wrong. you see him travel back to some of his greatest hits, very well handled by Lemire, and a very cool ending, only minus of this last trade is he did not finished it with Andrea Sorrentino, the main artist of this run, but still ok artwork.

This series never really hits the heights I hoped for but it was worth reading since I like Old Man Logan and Wolverine both.

    Jeff Lemire tries to have his cake and eat it too in his finale to Old Man Logan, so he both revisits many past moments from Wolverine's life and returns Old Man Logan to the Wastelands to bookend his story.The problem is one of agency.

    Fun but...While I did enjoy this, I am not sure if this indicates that Lemire is running out of steam with Old Man Logan. Having a plot that causes Logan to relive a lot of the "greatest hits" of the Claremont eras going into the original Old Man Logan plots doesn't point out some of the flaws of this series as a whole.

    This is a fitting end to Jeff Lemire's run and a good way to close out the beginning chapters of Old Man Logan's story. That said, there is a whiff of the perfunctory noticeable in the early issues here. Also, Andrea Sorrentino's art is sorely missed.

I mean... ok... sure.I liked the whole thing because it was a nice time-travel of Wolvie going from like WWI to NOW through all these issues. So that was a nice touch! The classic moments of his life was a nice touch too. And I liked even more that he couldn't change the outcome no matter what he did, because he was re-living moments, he could say other stuff, he could do some minor other stuff, but in the end he couldn't change big moments that dramatically changes his life. Also a classic Lemire touch that he made Wolvie say things or do things when he didn't want to say or do. That at some point he'd say something that he DID say 50 years ago and he'd be weird about it not wanting to say it. Or pop his claws without wanting to, or NOT popping them when he REALLY wants to. All of that was SO good. So I gave it 3 stars for that. Nice story and dialogue. Great artwork. Amazing covers!

Maybe if we hadn't spent the last 20 odd issues doing the same thing, I'd be more susceptible.I see other reviews despairing over the Dracula arc in the previous volume, but that was probably the most interesting the series has been. I really hope the new creative team can give this one a well-needed shot in the arm.The art takes a tumble in this volume too, with Filipe Andrade returning for the opening two parter and Eric Nguyen taking Past Lives proper. They're both able artists in their own right (if a little unpolished), but they pale in comparison to Andrea Sorrentino, who has departed for pastures new and higher progfile books.Sigh. All I can say, really.

    The last few pages actually packed a bit of an emotional gut punch. Bravo. It took the series a while to get there, with a few odd strays (Dracula, really?), and some of the flashbacks weren't that powerful, probably because this is the first Wolverine series I've read, but those last few pages, well done.

    Barely more than a glorified clip show. The ending is pretty good, and it certainly serves as nice end point for Lemire's run, but it doesn't really justify the otherwise slightly lazy story. Also, the cover artist greatly disappointed me by not making Logan's prison number on #19 either 24601 or even 9430.

(really?) It wasn't exactly a twist that made a lot of sense or pointed towards an exciting tale. But this book has continuously surprised me so I figured that I would stay along for the ride.And I was treated to a big wet blob of nothing that lasted an entire collection. First, Logan begs everyone to help him to get back there, not listening to anyone/ everyone who tell him that it is a bad idea. Then he decides to spring some nobody villain to help him because yeah, that's a smart plan. There's a pointless four panel battle with a different version of Spider-man (and wow, I obviously have no idea whatsoever of what is going on in Marvel outside of these x-books. Has every hero been replaced by a different person? That's a heck of a lot more ballsy than the x-books ever are...) and then Logan trusts this evil magician because why not? That's followed by a jaunt through Logan's greatest hits which is as lackluster as it sounds, maybe more. This lasts so so so long. Did we really need to see basically every era of Logan's life? Anyway, there's a tiny cool moment where Logan gets enough control to tell Iceman to come and save him in the future (Save the cheerleader, save the world!) - yeah, it's cool but it is something that is so overdone in these stories...Oh, and after all of this, he never makes it to where he was going. He never sees baby hulklet. He just decides that it is a bad idea. Really? After issues and issues of everyone telling him that it's a bad idea, he decides to back out of it because... ummm… Because... Well, it's complicated. See, he's a grumpy old guy and he just took a trip through his life where it frustrated him that he couldn't change anything so he decides that maybe he shouldn't change anything and just be less grumpy where he is. Alright, to be fair, I can see the emotional resolution that Lemire was trying for, I really can. But it fell so flat for me.Lemire's run on this book has really been spectacular, but this just isn't how it should have ended. What a sloppy mess of an ending. It's so disappointing after the highs that this book managed to hit before this point.

It's also a metaphor what's right and wrong with the industry.Old Man Logan started off as a somewhat inspired idea by Mark Millar, during his tenure at Marvel.

It was one of his final comics for the publisher (other than Ultimaet Avengers) and at the least told a story of things I had never seen before. It was absurd, nasty and brutish. But also tied into Millar's interconnected titles (Fantastic Four and 1985) to make a narrative that was ultimatley optimistic. The character was of course, a pretty decent one--so it was a bit cute to see him as a survivor in the Battleworlds/Secret Wars area, written by Brian Michael Bendis. At this point, instead of gracefully bowing out--the character became a replacement for Wolverine when he died under Charles Soules tenure.What became a fan-favorite alternate, became a replacement (with Jane Foster Thor, Hydra Cap and Coma Tony, among others). It became a veritable franchise with over 50 issues; featuring Bendis, Jeff Lemire (clearly sluming it) and Ed Brisson. Now there's an Old Man Hawkeye and a Dead Man Logan. Brisson's run seems to make the Maestro the ultimate baddie of his run. As Alan Moore says; "You see what those bloody corporations do? They take your ideas and they suck them! Suck them like leeches until they've gotten every last drop of marrow from your bones!"Lemire's ending to the run seems really phoned in. I was genuinely excited about this story, as Wolverine is a character that's a chyper--he has so much backstory and forgotten memories that you can insert any tale you want into his history, and this seemed like a retrospective of some sorts, which made the ending of Soule's "Death of Wolverine" quite poignant. He fought in so many wars, lived so many lives and had so many identities, friends...and enemies. Let's hope that Soule's Return of Wolverine has any heft and purpose.

He is sent back to the War of 1812. It is only supposed to be his consciousness and not his body that traveled thorugh time. But when he pops his claws, they are not the bone claws of that time but his modern day claws (and he starts slicing through metal bars to prove it).Like I said, not a great story but a decent way to end the comic book series. I am giving it 3.5 stars.

Thus, the fan service, as we see spirit-OML haunt his past self through the greatest hits of Wolverine's career. Weapon X, the Phoenix saga, fighting ninjas in Japan, it's all there once again. Lemire does a nice job of making it feel fresh and unexpected, but it truly is just a chance for OML to relive a lot of his most popular adventures. Ah well, considering that earlier volumes also featured OML reliving his past, I can't say this concluding volume's plot comes as a surprise.

Additionally, as much as the past lives element of this story worked to close out Logan's personal journey, his helplessness throughout left him feeling rather passive and weakened the story overall - particularly since he has been such a force for so much of this story.So, there were some disappointments with this final volume, but I've loved this series and Vol. 5 still manages to bring it to a satisfying conclusion.

    Very good. Excellent conclusion to Jeff lemires run on what will hopefully become long successful series of old man logan. I may not have loved every second of the 6 volume arc, as I thought it could be a bit confusing and even absurd at times, but overall I’m a big fan of old man logan, Jeff Lemire, and his work on this series. 4 stars for the book. 4 stars for the series. Also I know I wasn’t specific about what confused me in the previous volumes but this volume was clear and concise from Very good.

    There should be something cool about Wolverine traveling through his past and reliving the moments of his life, but it never get's very exciting. For one, he's never in one time long enough for it to matter. For another, the moments picked are less than exciting. The Wolverine/Hulk/Wendigo moment is fun but doesn't land because this Wolverine should be responding to Banner in a different way. And, then, he's just watching Dark Phoenix leave? Wow, I can barely contain myself.Perhaps the next There should be something cool about Wolverine traveling through his past and reliving the moments of his life, but it never get's very exciting.

    Past Lives is a volume for one purpose: a heavy punch to your gut.Wolverine is trying to get back in time to the Wastelands to save Hulk's grandson. He asks all the heroes with abilities and they all turn him down, so he has Asmodeus send him back in time.Asmodeus is a bad guy so uh...he doesn't exactly do what Logan asks him.It's a heavy gut punch about changing time and living life past/present. Really really cool story!I love these "Old Man Logan" books. How relevant it feels as I get older Past Lives is a volume for one purpose: a heavy punch to your gut.Wolverine is trying to get back in time to the Wastelands to save Hulk's grandson.
