Who's in this issue?
Well, for any Wolverine fan, get it! This is where the whole Wolverine regular series began. The writing talent of Chris Claremont is beautifully displayed in this issue, when Wolverine not only had his trademarked feral nature, but showed his human nature as well. Artwork by John Buscema is done beautifully, too. A must get for any Wolverine fan!

IN THIS ISSUE:
On a small island somewhere in the Indonesian chain, Soverign Flight 49 had made an emergency landing on an emergency landstrip on this island, only to be held captive by Khan and his pirates. Khan and his men killed the men, while did worse to the women. Anyone still alive were sold to slave traders. Logan leads his one-man mission to rescue Kojima Noburo, who was on the flight. He was the personal secretary of Mariko Yashida, Logan's love. Of course, Logan encounters fierce resistance, and battles it out with Khan and his pirates. Logan kills most of Khan's men. Khan tries to escape by taking a woman hostage, and would have been successful if not for that stewardess who shot and killed him from her hiding spot on Khan's getaway boat.
With his dying breath, Noburo warns that the pirates were employed by the Cult of the Black Blade, and they were looking for the Muramasa Sword; in legend, the sword of evil that corrupted souls, and tells Logan to protect the couriers that were flying in from the U.S. to Madripoor, for they had the sword, and the cult were sending people to get it.
Next week, in Madripoor, Lindsay McCabe arrives, and is kidnapped because the cult believed she had the sword with her. Logan manages to save her in her room, but she revealed that she didn't have the sword, but her friend Jessica Drew did, and she was going to meet Kojima and give him the sword. Unknowing to her though, Kojima had already died a week ago, which meant Drew was walking into a trap.
