The story is set in a post-apocalpytic world where the supervillains won. It is a six-issue arc that is independent of the rest of the comics. However, don't confuse this with the Jeff Lemire-written Old Man Logan comics. In that series, which is on-going, Logan has come back in time from his post-apocalypse and is running around the modern world and interacting with all the other Marvel characters, so it is not standalone.

Recommends it for: Old Bastards with a Grudge
I read this 7 years ago and absolutely loved all its violent, tragic glory.
And with the movie coming out soon, it seemed like the perfect time to do a re-read and see if this could stand the test of time and nostalgia.
The short answer?
Yup. It's still a fucking fantastic book.


The story is set in a dystopian future where the villains won. The United States has been divided up between the most powerful baddies, and there's nobody left to challenge them.


Well. That's not entirely true.

This is a TPB collecting the storyline "Old Man Logan", originally published in the comic book title "Wolverine" (Vol.3) #66 to #72 and "Wolverine: Old Man Logan Giant-Size".

في عصر الظلم، في حكم الطاغية، يمكنك ان تبقي رأسك منخفضا، تمشي جنب الحيط زي مابيقولو، لكن إن كنت تظن ان هذا سيجعلك في مأمن من الظلم، زبانية الطاغية، فأنت مخطئ

In a world ruled by tyrants, you can keep your head down, but that won't keep their heads turned away of you..

Recommended by the Greatest Wolverine ever, Hugh Jackman..since his movie's loosely based on it.

Unlike the movie, the setting here is even darker..a mix of dystopia..

Wolverine has been retired for fifty years and the world has gone to hell in a hand basket. Logan and his family are behind on rent when Hawkeye shows up, blind and needing a navigator for a cross country trip. Can Logan and Hawkeye cross a United States ruled by super villains?

I've been hearing about this one for years. However, Wolverine is not my favorite character and Mark Millar is a hack. Anyway, with Logan coming to theaters soon, I thought it was high time I read this. I was sold when th

Despite all the endless violence and bloodshed, with a focused storyline and great concept, Wolverine: Old Man Logan turns out to be a wonderful superhero graphic novel.

Set in the future and in an alternate universe where supervillains are the rulers of the world, Logan lives a quiet 'pacifist' life. One day, a friend (Hawkeye) approaches him and asks for a favor. Logan and Hawkeye go on a journey across America, and everything changes...


Fifty years ago, the super villains got their act together, teamed up, and wiped out the supes. Today, the U.S. is balkanized and California is run by the Hulk** and his brood of inbred, trailer park hillbillies.

Yesterday, I saw the second trailer for the upcoming Logan movie, featuring an older Wolverine. To tell you the truth, I wasn't expecting much as I was disappointed with X-Men Origins: Wolverine. And let me tell you that I loved everything and every second of it.


So I just had to know more: what's the story about? What inspired it all? That's how I ended up reading Old Man Logan. Let me tell you right away that it's a whole different thing from what's in the trailer. And it's ju

I am a complete sucker for any kind of Days of Future Past style stories because if there’s one thing I love more than reading about an elaborate fictional construct like the Marvel universe it’s reading about the destruction of all the heroes that populate it. Go figure….

So even though reviews by friends like Brandon and Stephen put this into three star territory I was revved up to try it. Surprise, surprise. Three stars from me, too.

The main idea in this is pretty bad ass. The major Marvel sup

Had I read this before seeing the recent Logan movie I may have enjoyed it a little bit more. The film, however, was just so much better than the writing here. It deals with the consequences of what near immortality and invincibleness can do to the soul, and it explored the relationship between Logan and Xavier in a remarkable way. Xavier had become almost a farther like figure for Logan, which is sort of ironic considering he was actually younger than him by almost 100 years. But it was still t ...more

Old Man Logan does for the bad-ass superhero what Unforgiven did for the outlaw cowboy: it traumatizes him, retires him, removes him from his violent past, turns him into a farmer, but then forces him to take on that one last job... and throws in a few dystopian Mad Max landscapes for good measure. So does it work? Well, the story feels a bit derivative and shallow and stagy, but what it lacks in originality and vitality it makes up for in style and design. Old Man Logan may not be the most enga ...more

I really enjoyed this roadtrip with Hawkeye and Wolverine even if lots of questions remained unanswered (like htf did Kingpin kill Magneto exactly? And where did all the dinosaurs come from?). The art work is consistently great and the story line moves forward at a breakneck pace. There is a helluva lot of violence and blood here making it unsuitable for younger audiences. Lots of fun though despite the gore and rather pessimistic storyline.

And this...most certainly is a good thing.

Also...Hawkeye is pretty f'ing awesome in this book.

The story is set in a future post-apocalyptic time period where the super villains of the Marvel universe have taken over the United States of America and embellished it to their liking.
Most of the heroes are either dead or keeping a low profile.
Wolverine embarks on a journey along with Hawkeye in order to support his family. As the story progresses, you learn why Wolverine swore to never pop his claws ever again.

Fifty years ago the villains won. They teamed up together and annihilated the super heroes.
Few survived and those who did are no longer super heroes. One hero in fact became a pacifist.

Old Man Logan is a depressing dystopian future mini-series where the villains killed the heroes. Hawkeye and Logan survived, but now Hawkeye is blind and Logan just wants to take care of his family. Unfortunately with villains running things simple things like not paying the rent could lead to being killed so Loga

How good was the Logan trailer you guys?
It gave me the perfect excuse to finally read Old Man Logan. Although I didn't need much motivation 'cause I've been wanting to read this title for ages.

A solo title with a post-apocalyptic marvel setting with Mark Millar's writing? Yeah, sign me up. This is going to be bonkers I thought. And it was.

Hell yes. Probably the most badass comic I've ever read, let alone a combination of tragedy, existentialism, biography, other-world, and revenge. Mark Millar gets Wolverine, and this is now one of my favorite Wolverine comics.

I've read a good number of other-world stories but this is probably the coolest. Fifty years into a dystopian sci-fi future. Wolverine? He's dead. Logan's just a farmer. And it's brilliant, fresh, violent, and even poetic.

This was recommended to me strongly by my comic book guru boyfriend so I knew from the start that chances are big that I will like it. And I did! A lot.

Right off the bat I should say that I haven't exactly been in the Wolverine fandom, despite having seen all of the movies that include him. That means I wouldn't have decided on my own to start this volume at all. But ultimately the story is great! It's different from other things that I've read and es
I really enjoy when popular comic franchises step away from their set storylines and get all speculative, taking chances creatively and using the characters to explore interesting ideas that they couldn't normally do while trying to stick to a particular plotline. Old Man Logan is a good example of this as Mark Millar has full freedom to tell us a story of a dystopian future where all of America's heroes have been defeated after the villains banded together against them, and now the U.S. has bee ...more

I honestly didn't expect this to be this good.

For starters, the artwork was awesome and the dialogue was great. Also, Wolverine has always been a good character when an author is looking for development. Another thing, it didn't bother me at all because I'm a disgusting human being, but there's a lot of gore in this. Do with that what you will.

In a small farm lives a man with his family. They call him Logan, those who are a bit older also know him as Wolverine. He used to be a member of the X-men, a mutant superhero team, but not anymore. There are no more X-men, no more Avengers, no more superheroes. They all died 50 years ago, in the great war, in which villains won and now some of them control the world.

Logan will accept a job offer from his old friend Hawkeye. He must drive him from Hulkland, the place he lives, all the way

Logan 2017 can't come fast enough...
Old Man Logan is the 1992 movie Unforgiven done as a superhero story. It is fitting that it was done in the Wolverine ongoing series, since Logan could be any of Clint Eastwood’s characters through the years; the strong, silent type with the gravel voice and tough as granite who lets his guns or in this case claws do the talking.

The movie and comic book plots are almost indistinguishable. A retired killer taking on one more hit to save a failing farm. Both had to avenge a fallen comrade and left

This is a pretty awesome futuristic-dystopian-everything-is-terrible-and-Hulks-offspring-will-eat-you take on the Marvel Universe.

A now pacifist Wolverine takes a trek across America with a blind Hawkeye. Along the way, they encounter some of the current status-quo which involves dinosaurs and biker gangs named Ghost Riders.

It's pretty bleak, and at some points it gets quite dark. Millar does his trademark thing of making everything as terrible as it could be, even under the Marvel banner.
