Comic Tropes: Mark Millar’s Old Man Logan

With Logan hitting movie theaters this week, it seemed like a good opportunity to look at some of its inspiration, the storyline Old Man Logan by writer Mark Millar. I take a look at the 3rd issue in the 8-issue storyline so that the full details of the story aren’t spoiled. I think the story is pretty interesting but it’s also pretty bleak. In the video, I argue that Millar’s writing is generally cynical, if not outright mean-spirited.
