1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Sam Quixote TOP 500 REVIEWER on 2 Feb. 2014
Format: Hardcover
Logan heads to Japan to be with his love, Mariko, only to find she's been married off by her drug lord father to a rich and powerful, but abusive, husband. And someone's trying to kill Logan of course. Cue extensive fight sequences involved ninja weapons, swords and ... snikt.

Chris Claremont's story is pretty linear with Logan tussling with one group of foes before being knocked into another group and then being knocked back, etc. etc. This book showed that there are only so many silent fight scenes a reader can absorb before it becomes dull. You know Logan can't die so there's no tension, it's just waiting until he takes out whoever he's fighting.

Frank Miller's art in the first 4 books is really good, and he provides at least one iconic image of Wolverine sans mask grinning and popping his claws. You can also see the beginnings of his Sin City style being tried out in this book as he experiments with shadows to tell a story than rely on shading or colours.

There are 2 issues of "Uncanny X-Men" included after the initial 4-issue story arc to conclude the Logan/Mariko storyline but throws up other storylines involving the X-Men that you need to buy other X-Men books to see how they end (for some reason Storm getting a hair-cut is a big deal. Ah, the 80s... readers didn't ask for much did they?).

"Wolverine" is a pretty tedious read for anyone who's read this character's other books. There's the detail on Logan's true love Mariko but other than that it's non-essential reading for general readers of comics. It's all action with no real interest in how it'll all turn out (as if it's going to end any other way than the expected!). Good art though.

If you are a fan of this character AND you did not buy the comics when they were originally released then is a must buy.

If you already have the comics from with this book is made (its a compilation) then there is nothing new here.

Good Story But The Collection Could Have Been More 21 Jun. 2013
By Jonathan Balofsky - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
If you have never read the wolverine miniseries by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller, this graphic novel is a must read. One of the all time greatest wolverine stories. However, if you already have a collection of it, you shouldn't bother to upgrade. There are no new extras in the collection whatsoever. The high points are that the art by Frank Miller is oversized and looks great, and from some images I've seen from other collections, compared to this one, the art has been cleaned up a little to look more natural and more like the original comics for an authentic feel while at the same time making the art stand out more.

The story has been reviewed many times and its identical here so there is no need for a review of that. Like I said, it's one of the best wolverine stories ever and lays the groundwork for so many future storylines and introduces new characters who would be prominent in both Wolverine's stories and the X-men stories. The writing is extremely well done and the art is Miller during his peak at Marvel.

This collection has a sturdy hardcover and the dust jacket has an excellent version of the iconic cover. Under the dust jacket on the hardcover itself is the same image which is a nice touch. the hardcover itself if like the new season one hardcovers which is a nice build.

If you have not read the miniseries before then get this collection. If you have, it might not be worth upgrading for not as much value.

I would give this collection 5 stars but I have to take 1 off for a lack of good new extras.
Pick one up for the mutant in your life... And don't forget the beer, Elf. 14 Dec. 2013
By Kevin J. Loria - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"I'm the best there is at what i do. But what i do best isn't very nice." NINJAS before NINJAS were Cool, BUB! Wolverine / Logan's definitive inaugural 1982 four part mini-series from Chris Claremont & Frank Miller. Miller & Claremont establish the essence of Wolvie as a failed samurai as opposed to the (simply the) psycho berserker. Logan's trip back to Japan and Clearly the inspiration for upcoming The Wolverine sequel (let's watch the credits shall we). Although, I lost my set to Hurricane Katrina it was the pride of my collection and the trade paperback is something no true believer should be without but the hardcover edition here is almost as comforting as the single issue first runs, pick one up for the mutant in your life... And don't forget the beer, Elf.
A classic Canucklehead story 2 Sept. 2014
By Eric Shoars - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Terrific story told by Claremont and drawn by Miller. After seeing so much of Claremont's stories drawn by John Byrne, it was interesting to get Miller's visuals with Claremont's words. I think Miller was the perfect choice to draw this story.

The original solo story for wolverine. Wolverine in Japan is always the best way to go for a great story for him. And that's exactly how it started. This is a must read for all fans.
Wolverine fan 18 Dec. 2013

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I have been a Wolverine fan for 18 years now and have never read his first 4 issues. So I bought the hardcover and it is a great story but it ends open ended.
