    Highly Recommend

    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
