It has the classic Wolverine goes to Japan tale written by Claremont and drawn by Frank Miller (in his pre-whore obsession days), which is still probably the definitive Wolverine tale.

The inclusion of the first Miller/Claremont Wolverine TPB and the Barry Windsor-Smith Weapon X series make this worthy of the price. The Miller/Claremont collaboration is seminal and lays the ground work for pretty much all of Wolverine's subsequent adventures in Japan. It's 5 star work.

The Weapon X storyline is good and reveals the epic adamantium bonding process that Logan went through that is mentioned throughout so much of his history and, in particular, the 80s "memory plugs" story line in his regular series. The only bad things I can say about this is I don't think Smith had quite hit his stride as an artist and my expectations for Weapon X were so huge that I couldn't help but be a bit disappointed. Regardless, this is an excellent read.

Also included is Wolverine's first appearance in the Incredible Hulk 181 and a Wolverine solo X-Men adventure excellently drawn by Windsor-Smith, which features Lady Death Strike; I will say this is not the best story featuring Yuriko and it also features a Power Pack member, which is unfortunate, I think they were just trying to segue into the Weapon X story. There's also a Captain America annual which features Wolverine, which is ok, but feels like filler, which is why it loses a star.

Great gift for Wolvie fans. I got this as a Christmas gift for my boyfriend because I knew he used to read the comics as a child. This was a much better option than trying to track down all of the original comics which, I'm sure would have cost a fortune, if they're even available. So, anyway, he loves it and thinks I'm pretty awesome for finding this book for him! Waiting for vol 2.

I haven't read much of Wolverine, and I wanted to meet this character a bit better, so I purchased this comic. And I've been blown away... especialy by Cleremont/BWS Weapon X story. One of the best art jobs ever done. Buy it, for other stories too (there's Miller inside, inspirative as ever).

You've heard it over the years how Wolverine is the coolest character in the world. You've seen the Hugh Jackman movies and now you're interested in the original comics that made Wolverine a legend. Well, then look no further than this hardcover volume. All the tales that made him the hottest darling of the comic-reading crowd in the 1980-90s are here.

The book starts off with Wolverine's first appearance in Incredible Hulk #181 (by creator Len Wein). Then we get the justly classic mini-series by Chris Claremont and Frank Miller. After that we get a classic Wolverine-Captain America tale (that foreshadows a lot of what constitutes the duo's relationship now in "New Avengers" and "Wolverine: Origins") and a Wolverine-Lady Deathstrike tale. Finally, we have the entire "Weapon X" storyline by Barry Windsor-Smith. The book comes with a foreword by Chris Claremont explaining the creation and evolution of Wolverine over the years (with special emphasis on the now legendary car-ride he had with Frank Miller discussing how to revamp the character into a failed-samurai). Also included are all the covers and pin-ups related to the stories.

I really couldn't care less about Wolverine the character, but this book is incredible. What fills up most of it is material normally published in two separate trades: Chris Claremont and Frank Miller's WOLVERINE miniseries from the early '80s, and Barry Windsor Smith's WEAPON X feature from 'Marvel Comics Presents' in the early '90s.

Claremont has two modes: low-key and bombast. The WOLVERINE story is kind of a mix, but happily leans a bit more to the former. Always all about character, here he delivers a reasonably well-crafted foreign adventure yarn told in a strong voice, to the aim of fleshing out the at-that-time mysterious Wolverine. Miller's art here ranks with his late Daredevil material- unique and stylized but never over the top, with inventive action sequences, much use of chiaroscuro effects, always detailed and with accurate proportions. Lately he has sacrificed these elements in favor of yet more style, I would say detrimentally, but here he's near perfect.

Far better, though, is the formalist scifi paranoia epic that is WEAPON X. Nothing I say could do it justice. Smith's dialogue and characterization is realistic enough, but this work is not really about character or even plot as much as what one can do with this medium. Smith deliberately fragments the typical flow of information on a page so that the panels form a kind of non-sequential collage, somehow managing to tell an ordinary narrative in the process. The art itself is superb, highly detailed, creating weird visual affinities between blood, wires, pills, hairs, buttons, broken glass, and snow. Expressionistic images of screaming thorny skeletons and monstrous oozing animals are explained diegetically-- and almost the whole thing is confined to a tank of liquid in a lab. Everyone who claims interest in comics or 'graphic novels' or "sequential art" as a medium cannot afford to miss this, even if they hate superheroes.

This hardcover is fleshed out with a few more pieces of minor interest: the first Wolverine story from Hulk #181, a perfect example of how lame the typical uninspired superhero comic was in the seventies (not that it's ever been any better), a Captain America Annual from the '80s that attained classic status only because of its cover which isn't reproduced here, and a Barry Smith issue of Uncanny X-Men in which he began to work out the complex imagery that bloomed in WEAPON X.

Well, all in all, it was worth the original price.

This is it, the birth of the most awesome character in the marvel universe. It is amazing storytelling, great art inside and out, and a very excellent comic. Chris Claremont needs to go and slap the fools that are writing the works for the Wolverine comics today. This is the basis for which all others most follow and some are following it pretty poorly and with out dialog to explain their reasons.

Frank Miller did the Marvel Presents series who for you newbies did the graphic novel for the movie '300', so nuff said.

ALL in ALL:
I LOVE LOVE this series none better to my knowledge. A ABSOLUTE MUST HAVE to enjoy especially if you are new to the Marvel Universe and Wolverine in general. These are the stories that keep players like me in the game. OUTSTANDING!
