Get Into Comics with Logan
Feb 27, 2017
Fans are excited for the premiere of Logan later this week and so are we!!
Logan is a loose adaptation of the Old Man Logan storyline by Mark Millar, which debuted in 2008. It follows an older Wolverine after a terrible series of events leading to the deaths of all the heroes on Earth. In the distant future, Wolverine lives in relative peace with his wife and two children as a warlord Hulk, Magneto, Doctor Doom, and Red Skull control what remains of North America.
Before going into Logan, make sure you get up to speed with the comics it's tied to: from the original story, to future appearances from Old Man Logan, to the stories featuring Laura Kinney (X-23). This is the perfect opportunity to see where it all came from and why these stories are the best to adapt to the silver screen! Logan hits theaters on March 3rd, but you can pick these up at your local comic shops now.
WOLVERINE OLD MAN LOGAN
(W) Mark Millar
(A/CA) Steve McNiven
Millar. McNiven. Wolverine. It doesn't get any better than this. The only way writer Mark Millar (Wanted, Kick-Ass) could top his all-time classic Wolverine tale "Enemy of the State" was to take it to the future -his Civil War brother in arms, Steve McNiven, handling the art duties! Fusing the dystopian super-hero elements of the X-Men's "Days of Future Past," the wild and wooly futurescapes of Mad Max, and the tragic pathos of Clint Eastwood's archetypal Western heroes, Millar's tale finds Wolverine at a crossroads with who he really wants to be and who he really is. Collecting WOLVERINE #66-72 and WOLVERINE GIANT-SIZE OLD MAN LOGAN.
