Some thoughts about All-New Wolverine #33
Laura has managed to achieve world peace after years of fighting but now that her life is coming to an end she has decided to find a person that she lost a long time ago.
This seems a pretty fitting storyarc to end the book.
Tom Taylor opens the long-awaited storyline Old Woman Laura by quickly depicting how different things are in the future. This is clearly not the same apocalyptic future from Mark Millar's Old Man Logan story and instead goes for a nearly utopic setting where almost all of the heroes got successful and happy lives. This is also connected to Taylor's very first story in this book due that it includes one of Laura's missing sisters.
I have a few problems though and this might feel a bit nitpicky but I can buy Maria Hill becoming the new Director of S.H.I.E.L.D. and Laura becoming the leader of her own country but I just can't believe that Kamala Khan/Ms. Marvel is going to become the President of the U.S.A. based on the portrayal she got in her own book and others, she's simply not made for that kind of role, it would be like putting Peter Parker in that role (then again, considering who is the current President in real life, this might not be so unrealistic). The issue is also a little light in content but hopefully the rest will be better.
Ramon Rosanas handles the art and is really solid thanks to his clean style and beautiful characters.
Promising beginning, hoping for more plot progression in the next one though.
