When Is Old Man Logan Ending? Mark Your Calendar

It's going to feel like a long wait. But it will definitely be worth it.

We finally saw the "SNIKT!" in the Wolverine #72, which was Part 7 (of 8) of Old Man Logan.  We know that issue #73 had nothing to do with the arc.  Also, next week's issue #75 changes the title to "Dark Wolverine."  I guess Wolverine had too many titles and needed a break so he handed it over to his son.

The question we all have had on our minds since issue #72 is when the heck are we going to get Part 8?  I'm pretty sure it's safe to say that no one actually wants the arc to end but we're all dying to see what happens next.  The good news is, Marvel has finally announced the date.  Actually last week, Mark Millar posted on his forums:

Got the first few pages from McNiv......and they are McNIFICIENT! Honestly, I thought he definied Wolvie best last issue with that last page, but you will poop your pants yet again when you see page three here. As you know, the cover is one of my faves ever and you'll hopefully see that soon when Marvel release. All very exciting!!!!!!

There you go.  Prepare to poop your pants.

September!? Ugh. There killing me here. Why is it that the best books can't seem to follow a normal schedule?

Also, Dark Wolverine? I think I'll just drop the title thanks. Origins will be enough for me.

Really? I think it's a horrible book.

@John Valentine: I gotta agree I have been picking up Wolverine Origins to see what it was like and so far it's quite suckish, I'm gonna drop it after the first arc is over.

BUT OLD MAN LOGAN! I can't wait for the ending but I don't want it to be over.=|

I still can remember when it was being trumpeted as the best book Marvel was publishing when it was first released. I tend to give my favorite characters a lot of leeway, a bad arc or two doesn't spoil a series for me.

god damn hulk is still around or that a giant ass baby he going to fight.

I just love how someone as edgy as Millar posted "poop" on his own boards.  If you've read some of his other stuff, you know he doesn't usually hold back.

I'm not crazy about waiting but it will be worth it.  Plus it lets us hang on to Old Man Logan a little longer.

@Slinger What about a whole series of ridiculously average/ tending-towards-poor issues? That's how I would define Wolverine Origins.

If you want Wolverine you should read "Wolverine: Weapon X" that's going to continue Wolverines solo stuff. I get Wolverine in the mail and issue 74 came with a slip of paper stating it.

As it was in the beginning, is now, and ever shall be...

Wolverine vs. Hulk.

@John Valentine: Ive said it before, I've been told I have bad taste.

@Vortex13:
I refuse to touch Wolverine: Weapon X for moral/ethical reasons.

This is going to be great. He's been full on pacifist for years all that pent up rage is going to go.

Ohh. yeah, i couldn't wait... And personely I was afraid of "why don't they say anything?"
After Oldman"Logan" , you think there's going to be Oldman-"Stark" or -"Castle"?
'Cause they like to pull everything out of a good idea.

I wouldn't say so for this.

Is it safe to say that this run's conclusion is going to play as a MAJOR development in the 616-verse?

My guess would be that this story's conclusion will have no real lasting effects. It's just a good story.
