Wolverine #71 review (Marvel, 2009)

Yes, that is a Venom coated T-Rex, looking like it is hot pursuit of something. That ‘something’ is the ‘Spidey-Buggy’ (de rigeur post-super-heroes-apocalypse transportation) containing Wolverine (aka ‘Old Man Logan’) and Hawkeye (old and blind). It is a great start to an issue that is full of incident, with the likes of Black Bolt and Emma Frost making an appearance, and you get treated to the stunning vista that is ‘Pym Falls’. You probably have an idea what that is all about. We get to find out exactly what Hawkeye has been transporting across the ravaged lands, and it is quite a surprise – this leads to a bloody finale that does not end well. I think Wolverine is due to get his claws out any time soon.

I really like the ‘Old Man Logan’ run – Millar presents an absorbing alternative future, and the art of McNiven is clean, crisp and stunning in some of its detail (like Pym Falls) – and this issue set up the final 2 episodes very nicely.
