Dead Man Logan #6
With Mysterio (believed) to have been put behind him, Old Man Logan sets about making his final farewells before returning to The Wastelands, his final resting place.
Henderson and Brisson create a clear point of division in the narrative by inserting this interlude at the midway point in Dead Man Logan. Loose ends are tied up neatly (or neatly enough) for Logan to return “home”. One of the hallmarks of this series thus far has been Brisson’s understanding of timing. There is a time and a place for jokes and hijinks as well as space for tenderness, respect, love.
This list of farewells and the interactions in each sequence clearly demarcated the older, more mature Logan from his present day counterpart. OML is concerned what people think of him (if only a limited number of people) in a way you rarely see Logan react outside of certain runs by certain writers. He craves respect from Steve. He craves resolution with Mariko.
Henderson and Woodard do an excellent job of using space and color to effect the narrative throughout this issue, from the bright vibrant tones of the Captain America encounter to the muted tones of the Mariko sequence.
And then, of course, there is Glob. Nobody– and I mean nobody— writes a better Glob than Ed Brisson. He is the only writer I’ve seen so far to treat Glob like more than just a caricature. Brisson’s Glob lives, changes, adapts. If this issue is the last Brisson Glob, I’ll be disappointed in some ways yet he leaves this character he gifted “flesh” to on a high note.
'Dead Man Logan #6' is a key turning point in the series that fans will not want to miss. Joyous and heart-rending at the same time.
