Yo Old Man Logan, is in my opinion the best Marvel story I've ever read. I loved it and the giant size wrap up was awesome. Not really feeling all of the movie tie ins but underground look like it could have a cool art style. ions cover also has me intrigued, i'd have to peep a few pages before a buy though. No love for the punisher?
