I'm going to try to do the review again later today, after I eat.

I don't type well. I use the Hunt and Peck method. And my vision isn't great. That makes it time consuming to write anything. And because I don't type well, I sometimes hit the wrong keys. That's what happened last night. Instead of the left hand Shift key, I must have hit the Ctrl key. Or possibly I hit the Alt key instead of a z,x, or c. In any case, the key I hit after that deleted my entry. Deleted 20 minutes of my unique brilliance. I can merely hope to recreate said brilliant review. I can't imagine what your lives would be like if you never got to read my most illuminating and captivating work.

Of course I am all beside myself, you told me you loved me and then defiled me like an underage brit.


except I let you turn around to see my face at least twice

Also that was a great comic. I'm glad you guys were fucking around.

This was fucking awesome, so brutal. The most beautiful cow guts you will ever see rendered in comics.

Review tomorrow.

It's Millar, shouldn't take you more than two or three minutes, tops! ;-) :P

Wolverine: Giant-Size Old Man Logan #1: Millar/McNiven Marvel $4.99
There will be Blood. My god is this issue a blood fest. 32 pages of death, well 28 ish but still. After a long delay Old Man Logan has come to an end. Was it the greatest ending ever sadly no. Was it damn good fun hell yes. McNiven really shines on the art here, Millar really lets the art speak for the book. I think I would of enjoyed it a bit more if had been on time but I can’t complain. I plan to re-read the hold arc soon hopefully it will be as good as I remember it being.
8.0/10

Why would anybody pay 5 for this crap? Aside from the beautiful McNiven art, this was quite possibly the least interesting comic that I have read all year. Wolverine kills a bunch of people, he then kills another bunch of people, he then kills another bunch of people. Finally he [spoiler]kills She-Hulk with one swipe and disembowels Hulk from the inside[/spoiler] It was so predictable. :smt011

Because we've been waiting 7 issues for Wolverine to kill someone.

So Millar is a good writer because he made you buy six issues without Wolverine killing anyone?

All it means is that he's a good con-man. The only interesting scene of this entire arc was when Mysterio tricked Wolverine.

He built up the tension and our desire for Logan to snap really well, there's a reason the last issue had a 2-page spread of just the words SNIKT, it's what the whole story has been building up to.
