Oh boy, where to begin.
I was on Old Man Logan cloud-9 with the last issue, Wolverine Vol 3 #72. You had the Red Skull, in charge of Amerika, and wearing Captain America's uniform around, then getting beheaded by Logan. Wonderful! Awesome!
Logan steals money and rushes back to California to pay his rent. Ok, I guess that's his reason for living and all...
He gets home only to find out his family was killed because the Hulk Gang got bored waiting for him to pay. That's terrible! We didn't even get to know his cool future family...
He pops his claws for the first time in 50 years. Yay! A whole new chapter to Old Man Logan!
But wait, you're going to make me wait 6 months for the last issue? Oh, it's going to be a super-sized special? I forgive you then.
Almost a half a year later, I can't wait to read about what happens next! Now Wolverine is old and badass, and he's the only good guy in the country, so he has the element of surprise! Awesome!
So in this issue, the Hulks are revealed to be inbred cannibalistic descendants of Bruce Banner and Jennifer Walters.
Bruce is still alive as Pappy Banner, and controls their moves as a Landlord and Super-Villain.
All this is fine except for the fact that this entire story is just Logan killing all the Hulk Gang members, and then heading out to kill the rest of the villains.
It was quite an anti-climax for the series that I've been waiting so long to finish. And the art in the previous books was over-overwhelmingly beautiful, I was probably expecting too much to see the same here. While some was good, there were a few pages that were colored horribly, (Hulk biting into Logan, Logan bursting from Hulk's back).
And I got tired of seeing Logan cut through the Hulk Gang Members like they were tissue paper. They introduced almost 30 of these unnamed characters, only to have them destroyed upon sight.
I tried to think of ways this series could have ended better, but that's just it. It shouldn't have ended. It was too soon and too rushed to complete this post-apocalyptic tale, and it felt like they ran out of time with it.
Plus, why was this story started in the main Wolverine series? What does it have to do with Wolverine of today? I daresay those questions will never be answered.
