Booknote: Wolverine

Wolverine - Chris Claremont, Frank Miller, Paul Smith

A compilation of Claremont's run with Frank Miller doing the art, which makes for a nice combination. Wolverine heads to Japan to meet the woman he loves. However, the impending wedding is not all it is cracked up to be. Her family is involved in the criminal underworld, and when she stops answering his letters and calls, he heads over to Japan to find out why. He finds himself in the middle of an underworld battle as her father is striving to consolidate his underworld power. Add to it a ronin samurai girl who also has the hots for Wolverine, and things get interesting. Overall, a nice compilation of comics, although I have to say it does leave a bit of a cliffhanger at the end.
