A visual feast with a rage igniting scene of the brutal reality of the nature of Old Man Logan run.

MORE NEWS FROM THE WEB

The cover of Old Man Logan #2 foreshadowed a classic match was going to be had between Old Man Logan and The Hulk and boy, it delivered. ComiConverse’s Sammy Rendon gets right into the visual feast that this issue brought.

Synopsis

In Old Man Logan #1, Logan had crossed Black Butcher off of his hit list and was moving on to Bruce Banner, who in the future gives birth to horrific-acting children who eventually kill his family. Trouble is Bruce Banner is no longer the Hulk. Amadeus Cho is the Hulk now, and Logan is going after the wrong Hulk! Wolverine is one of the best people to go against the Hulk because his regenerating powers allow him to literally roll with Hulk’s punches; but we’re talking about Old Man Logan here, whose powers have slowed in a significant way. Will Logan find that out Banner is no longer the Hulk before it’s too late?

Analysis

Old Man Logan #2 was, at my first reading, a bit of a letdown. It recapped events that happened in the original Old Man Logan run that were never before seen, but this could have been an issue #1.5. It showed Bruce Banner’s kids killing cows and eventually doing the same with a complaining tenant. Upon my second reading though, it occurred to me that new readers didnt know how Banner’s kids acted and how much of monsters they really were. Seeing that Banner is the next name on Logan’s hit list, it was fitting for Logan to relive harsh memories to fuel his rage and his motives.

The flashback actually showed the event of Logan’s wife and children being killed, something that was not displayed in the Old Man Logan run before. It was chilling but captivating to read that Logan’s children died in fear! It was a rough few panels to get through watching the home invasion unfold, with one of Banner’s kids’ mammoth hands covering Scotty’s and Jade’s mouths shut, forcing them to watch while Banner’s other son had Maurice (Logan’s wife) by the throat. She died terrified with tears rolling down her face knowing Logan was gone and there was nothing she could do to save herself or her children. This is the event that eats away at Logan with guilt. Guilt that he could have done something sooner, and maybe he could have prevented this whole thing. Well, now that is not the case, and he is here to take action when he didn’t before. That’s what is going to make this whole run so engaging to me.

Which is why the flashback took a second reading for me to appreciate it. I am eager to see Logan finish this, and the flashback took audiences away from that. But when they show the human aspect, of a family man’s worst fear actually happening, it makes this run that much more engaging. When Logan finally catches up to Bruce Banner, we want him to take care of him that much more.

The battle between Logan and the Totally Awesome Hulk is an amazing battle. I found myself physically moving closer to the pages, captivated by Andrea Sorrentino‘s art. The action in Sorrentino’s art looked as if it was inspired by a video game. The characters were engaging with their surroundings, like the Hulk kicking Logan through a building from ground level, or clapping his hands together to create a gust of wind powerful enough to throw Logan all the way to Brooklyn! It was a great way to let Sorrentino’s skill loose on the page. After Logan’s beating though, Hulk literally called “time out” and asked if Logan needed a doctor. Logan knowing Banner in his Hulk mode is never this concerning discovers that the Hulk is now Amadeus Cho, a kinder Hulk.

Story continues below

Which raises the question, what timeline did Logan come back in? It looks like it was during the last 6 months during the Marvel re-launch, and the last page in a way confirms that.

Andrea Sorrentino is a master when it comes to action; a great example of that is a Logan and the Hulk drawn inside of the words “KA-CHOOM” fighting! That panel brought out the child in me that read comic books in the early 90’s. Also, the smaller boxed panels that zoom in on the points of destruction brings so much to these last two issues, and I am looking forward to seeing them in the issues moving forwards.

Jeff Lemire takes a back seat for the second half of this issue, which was fine considering Sorrentino’s art was enough to keep us turning the page. But Lemire’s writing really knew how to get audiences emotions rattled. However, it does feel like in this issue he just took us from point A to point B. I hope we can begin to spend more time in the world Logan is in now, and not the world he was in before.

The way these last two issues have played out, I can tell we are going to have more Marvel cameos and that is fine with me.

Old Man Logan #2 is on stands now.

  2. Zune and iPod: Most people compare the Zune to the Touch, but after seeing how slim and surprisingly small and light it is, I consider it to be a rather unique hybrid that combines qualities of both the Touch and the Nano. It’s very colorful and lovely OLED screen is slightly smaller than the touch screen, but the player itself feels quite a bit smaller and lighter. It weighs about 2/3 as much, and is noticeably smaller in width and height, while being just a hair thicker.

  42. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  43. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.
