“Old Man Logan, Part 4”
Writer: Mark Millar
Penciler: Steve McNiven; Inker: Dexter Vines
At the rate this series is going (with only four issues in six months), the eight-issue storyline of ‘Old Man Logan’ is going to take at least year to complete.
My guess is that when the trade paperback comes out, the pacing and story are going to be pretty awesome.
Unfortunately, this is a semi-monthly comic at the moment so the pacing is absolutely dreadful, reading more like a travelogue through Mark Millar’s apocalyptic Marvel universe than an actual story.
If I were a more patient man, I would wait for the whole story to come out before reading it (much the way I am handling ‘100 Bullets’). But since I am not, I will grumble all the way to the final issue.
What about you? Are you more forgiving that I am? More patient? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
