Wolverine'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!

This trade paperback of Wolverine Limited Series (1-4) is a must read for any fan of our favorite Canuck. I read it again from time to time.

This volume contains the four-issue Wolverine mini-series by Claremont and Miller and issues 172 and 173 of the Uncanny X-Men, which are a direct continuation of the mini-series. Overall, pretty good stuff. Claremont's writing style is verbose, as usual, and while his love of international cultures shines through in this as in many of his tales, the odd and/or incorrect romanizations of some Japanese words were distracting (such as "Hei" instead of "Hai"). Miller's art is okay, not at the level of Dark Knight Returns or Sin City, but on par with his early Daredevil run. Paul Smith's art in the X-Men issues is interesting at times (Wolverine in uniform looks very angular and cool) and rushed and poor at others (Storm sometimes looks like a humanoid panther, with large nose and lips that are almost a characterization of an African American). All in all, this is a classic piece of Wolverine's much re-worked history and is essential for anyone who wants to understand the character.

This is the big one .. Claremont & Miller ... this was Marvel's first mini series released in the 80s and still one of the best. This story fleshed out Wolverine in ways not expected and changed his character from then on... Wolverine no longer just a psycho killer ... from here on he was a samurai with honor
