10 out of 10 - salloria
Wolverine's on a mission in Canada, and once he "balances the books," he arrives back in the United States only to find out that all the letters he's written his love, Mariko Yashida, have been returned and unopened. Immediately heading out to Japan, Logan is shocked to find out that Lord Shingen - Mariko's father - had incurred some debt and the payment was his daughter's hand in marriage…

Fast-paced and full of action, Chris Claremont's opening issue in this mini-series is like someone pressing the ignition button. His handle on the character - especially Wolverine's thoughts - are bang on as Logan crosses the Earth to get to his true love. Just when you think you know the players, the cliffhanger reminds you that the ride is just beginning.

Frank Miller drew this before his Sin City style emerged, and the result is equally fantastic. Imagine what he thought when the script called for the Canadian Rockies, a grizzly bear, airplanes, Japanese skyscrapers and tons of Eastern culture! Regardless, it all transitions effortlessly, and is a treat to see.

This first issue is easily a masterpiece, and for those of you who haven't had the chance to read it - even if you're not a Wolverine fan - I suggest you give it a shot anyway… it's that good.
