Dead Man Logan #1
With Maestro dead and Old Man Logan nursed back to the land of the living (for now), its time to tie up any loose ends that remain. With only twelve months to live, Logan makes taking Mysterio out his first priority but in the process of locating him, Miss Sinister catches wind of Mysterio's capabilities and potential and gets to him first.
Logan teams up with Young Man Hawkeye and the two find themselves a day late and a dollar short at nearly every turn, allowing Miss Sinister and Mysterio to take their hero-killing scenario to Neo-Hydra, run by Sinn and Crossbones. Meanwhile, Forge reassembles Maestro's time machine and takes a trip... to The Wastelands!
Brisson returns Old Man Logan to his roots in the opening chapter of his farewell, reopening the early series push for Logan to ensure his timeline never materializes by removing key players but still manages to populate the issue with the witty one-liners that make Brisson one of the top X-writers today. The first issue is, unsurprisingly, dominantly set-up for what we will be seeing over the next year, but still manages to be an exciting read throughout.
The interactions between Hawkeye and Logan feel perfectly true to each character and played extremely well here. Not to be overshadowed, the art from Mike Henderson is a perfect fit to the tone of the book– not overly clean but still crisp, clear, and distinct. This issue is a solid start to what is certain to be a hit series.
A book many have been looking forward to and simultaneously dreading, Dead Man Logan #1 delivers on all counts as we begin our long goodbye to Old Man Logan.
