Check out Ryan's podcast, Columbus Comics Corner here. Logan continues to fight his way through this nightmare. Things became even more strange when Jean Grey appears to be controlling this all. It can only get weirder from here. 

We pick up where Logan is facing Jean Gray. He can pick up on something not being right about his Jeannie. Before he can even start to resolve the matter, he’s quickly pushed into another alternate reality.

In these nightmares, the visions have intensified and hits Logan the most emotionally. Just about every nightmare he experiences has and could of happen since. One in particular where we will out the find outcome real soon.

Although Logan is able to pull himself together to break these nightmares. He can’t shake the feeling he has to visit an old familiar place.

Jeff Lemire has wrapped up this arc and has the set up the story moving forward for Logan. Overall, this prelude was an enjoyable story to get the reader to Logan’s next destination. If this vision has come true since time has passed. Logan will soon be in the thick of it. Regardless of the reveal to be seen, you’re left excited to see where the story goes. I’m glad the one title Marvel is double shipping could be Old Man Logan.

I’m hoping Andre Sorrentino and Marcelo Maiolo ride out the art for Jeff Lemire’s run. Their collaboration helps elevate this book further. Great use of panel layouts and color choices all around. My only nitpick of the issue is the art felt rushed on two panels at the end. But nothing to take away from the overall enjoyment of this book.

Bits and Pieces: Jeff Lemire wraps up the arc with a nice touch to send Logan onto his next journey. Moving forward, Logan will soon find out if his visions have become true at an old familiar place. You'll be left excited to see where Jeff Lemire will take the story.
