So I drank the cool-aid and it tasted pretty good until I started convulsing (finished reading this issue) and saw my hard-earned money flash before my eyes.

I’ll admit issue 70 was when I (along with other fellow “Old Man Logan” cult members) proclaimed this series one of the best Wolverine stories ever and gave into to the hype. Like a douche, I even twitted about how I could not wait until this issue came out … TWICE!

It looked like I was going to be right, McNiven’s amazing art and Millar’s surprise at every turn story-telling was going to get us to the promise land as we rode hail-bob along with Elvis.

We were wrong … we were wrong. The art was amazing, but I found myself getting bored of people getting chopped up. I like violence like any other desensitized citizen living in today’s jaded world, but this was just boring. It became a chore to have to see people get cut-up.

This is a spoiler-free review so about the ending, I will just say that it didn’t make any sense. I understand that it was an alternative future, elseworld story, but the characters used in this issue did things that the name they bear would never do. It would be like if I did an elseworld Winnie The Pooh story, and Winnie The Pooh never liked Honey, didn’t even know what honey was and in fact was not even a yellow bear with a red shirt. Instead in my OML inspired Winnie The Pooh, Winnie is a blue Ardvark with pants on and no shirt.

Wild Ride issues 66-72
Art is as amazing as ever.
If you like violence, then you will not be bored.

Dissapointing ending
Bad characterization of the last main character
Don’t get enough for what you pay for.

Story: 1 - Poor
Art: 5 - Excellent


  1. This review made me happy, because I know I’m not alone!

  2. I disagree, OML (Old Man Logan), was a western story first and formost.  It’s similar movie Unforgiven. 

    To have a mild violence throughout the story and a very violent ending, with OML riding off into the sunset was beautiful, and totally in character of this series.  

    Granted, it the wait for this conclusion was way too long, and we did have to pay too much for this book.

  3. @JohnVFerrigno – reformed OLM Cultists … haha


    @rschafer – Unforgiven? More like Unforgivable!! Millar had a good thing going until he brought in the main antagonist Bruce Banner. It made no sense, even in an elseworld sense. 

  4. Millar licks the sweat of a dead man’s back.  May the fleas of a thousand camels infest his underwear!!
