Are you a fan of Marvel, post-apocalypses, and archery? If you answered, yes to any of those questions then you’ll be excited that Marvel is returning to the future wasteland timeline, featured in Mark Millar’s series, Old Man Logan.
This new book is entitled Old Man Hawkeye, and is meant to act as a prequel to Millar’s original eight-part series.
The comic will follow Hawkeye five years prior to the events of Old Man Logan, and sometime before he goes blind. Considering the alternate universe in which the book is set features villains like Kingpin, and Red Skull ruling over everything, it’ll be interesting to see where this story goes.
It is no surprise that Marvel is using this setting, as it became popular with fans when the elder Logan showed up back in Secret Wars, and has been trudging around with the X-Men in the 616-universe ever sense. He even got a continuation of his original series, which was moderately successful.
The new 12-part series will be written by Ethan Sacks, illustrated by Marco Checchetto and is set to start releasing in January as a monthly series. Regardless of how popular it will be Old Man Hawkeye, sounds like it should be something to look forward to.
