Parental advisory is right! I LOVED the Old Man Logan run in Wolverine… Millar came up with a tale that mesmerized readers and made us want more. Not so here, I’m pretty sure Millar phoned in this gore fest that is nothing more than a 30 page, out-of-proportion fight filled with bizarre scenes (Hulk-women breastfeeding and Logan popping out of the stomach of a 40 foot hulk not unlike an alien neophyte) and a really lame “Lone Wolf and Cub” ending that readers saw 15 pages away. A rotten ending to what was one of the best story lines of the last year.
