Wolverine: Old Man Logan

Did you see the film Logan? If you enjoyed it, why not read the story that inspired it. This dystopian, violent story forces an aged Wolverine to face his inner demons and reluctantly fight for justice. Mixing elements of Mad Max: Fury Road and the X-Men films, Old Man Logan manages to be action-packed, yet still emotionally charged. Well worth the read.
