Wolverine 3, 1982. Seven years after joining the X-Men, Wolverine was the first to receive a solo series; in hindsight it’s hard to imagine when he hasn’t had one. The team first visited Japan in 1979 (though Logan had been there decades before) and our hero met Mariko Yashida who became his longtime love interest. This four-issue series starts when she won’t return Wolverine’s calls and in Tokyo he finds himself rejected and outmatched, though his old friend Asano Kimura is still on his side, along with very new girlfriend Yukio. But he’s a mess without Mariko, so in this issue Wolverine and Yukio make out, drink and fight their way across Tokyo—first with a sumo, then a bullet train, then ninjas from the Hand clan (created for Daredevil by Frank Miller) who Yukio fights off because Logan’s too loaded. Characters say/think both “I’m the best there is at what I do” and “My kind of fight,” which are cool the first time you read them but not when Chris Claremont reuses them in every X-related comic he writes that decade. Logan discovers Yukio works for Mariko’s evil dad when he recognizes the nerve gas smell on her blades. He chases her across the city into a Hand ambush in a cute rock garden, Logan kills the ninjas (out of panel, it’s only 1982) and Yukio escapes. TO BE CONCLUDED, we’re told. Despite his own clichés Claremont’s writing is solid—it’s pretty great for the time that he uses Logan’s ongoing interior monologue rather than thought bubbles—but Frank Miller’s art is the star here, especially the fluidity and cinematic eye of his layouts. (After Spider-Man and Daredevil, this is the third time Miller drew a character in consecutive issues.) All that aside, this series disappointed the crap out of me when I was a kid; as an eleven-year-old X-Men fan, I THOUGHT A WOLVERINE LIMITED SERIES WOULD BLOW MY MIND WIDE OPEN but it’s not as spectacular as that.

I'm looking for a NM++ copy of #Wolverine 3. This is mine. It's in great shape except for a few color-breaks on the spine (see 2nd pic). I'd really like to have this book in a raw equivalent of a 9.8 (a perfect front cover is necessary). Message me if you have one that you are willing to part with.
