Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's character-defining Wolverine tale gets the deluxe treatment it deserves! Logan's vacation from the X-Men is interrupted when he discovers that his beloved, Mariko Yashida, has been married off by her criminal father Lord Shingen! When Shingen humiliates Wolverine in front of Mariko, the hero loses heart, drowning his sorrows in beer, bar fights...and the arms of wild assassin Yukio. But when betrayal strikes from a most unexpected source, can Wolverine reclaim his honor and rescue Mariko and himself from the trap Shingen has set? Then, the X-Men travel to Japan to rejoin their wayward teammate - but Viper and the Silver Samurai want to guarantee that the mutants' story won't have a happy ending. Secrets, shockers and broken hearts await in Wolverine's legendary first solo adventure!
