A Fond Farewell to Old Man Logan

Editor's Note:

This week I only have a Spotlight Pick for my readers, but it's a must read for anyone who's a fan of the X-Men.  Coming soon though, I'll be sharing my thoughts on fan produced Star Trek movies in and episodes.  Stay tuned compatriots. ☺

Spotlight Pick:

In the fall of 2014, as the result of an alien virus, Wolverine lost his healing factor and was supposedly killed.

Rather than leaving their X-Titles Logan-less, Marvel Comics brought Old Man Logan, from a parallel universe, into the main 616 universe to keep fans from going into Adamantium withdrawal.  While he never donned the blue and yellow tights, he delivered the same razor-sharp style of action and gruff attitude we were accustomed to.

Now that they're bringing the primary Wolverine back, Old Man Logan is getting a 12 issue send off.  I just read #1, and without giving anything away, which isn't in the promotional material, Logan knows he's dying, and he's determined to take down one last villain.

The first issue, released on November 28th, 2018, is a bit spendy at $4.99, but if you can swing it it's worth the read.  Future issues will drop to $3.99.
