REVIEW: Dead Man Logan #12
Dead Man Logan Issue #12 of 12. This is it, Bub. End of the line. No do-overs. No last-minute reboot and no clones. The Logan from another timeline has to go. He was transported to the present from an alternate timeline where the bad guys won and carved up the Earth until nothing was left. But then this timeline’s Wolverine came back as a clone with heated claws, or a something or other, so Logan returned to the wastelands that were his home.
Dead Man Logan’s creative team of Ed Brisson and Mike Henderson is 100% blood, guts and spinal cords. The art is gritty and violent. The world is full of mercenaries, con-men, cannibals and really, really bad guys. It is no place for old men as milky eyed, bleeding, dying from adamantium poisoning Logan is finding out. Autistic teenaged Hulk and Dani Cage, who is worthy enough to lift Thor’s hammer, are the two bright spots in this story. He reads advanced chemistry books while on the john but has the vocabulary of a five-year-old and she gets the powers of Thor as well as the outrageous accent.
I’m sorry to see this series come to its inevitable end but Brisson couldn’t have Logan break the 4th wall in the last panel say something like “I ain’t never gonna die Bub!” without making the entire story completely worthless. On the plus side, he is teaming up with artist Jonas Scharf (Bone Parish, House of Waxwork) to bring us The Avengers of the Wastelands Issue #1 in 2020.
3/5 Marquee Tickets – Great Story with plenty of action and tongue in cheek violence.https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/review-dead-man-logan-12/https://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Image1-600x239.jpghttps://www.firstcomicsnews.com/wp-content/uploads/2019/10/Image1-150x60.jpgReviewsEd Brisson,Logan,Marvel
