Who's in this issue?
The new introduction of a totally new staff for the Wolverine comic line, bringing with them new stories and new adventures for Wolverine. Honestly, this issue has one of the best Wolverine covers that I've ever seen. Great job by the artist! Storyline looks to be interesting, though only future issues will tell how this issue will come out.

IN THIS ISSUE:
Logan has a brief dream where he unleashes his animal side in the Australian outback, and then recalls how Lord Shingen, Yashida's father, had once called him nothing more than an animal cast in a...human form." Storm then enters the dream, and explains to him how he should accept himself for who he was, since that was what made him different from the rest of the X-Men. Gateway appears, and creates an interdimensional door, which Logan goes through.
Back into reality, Logan and Roughouse were having a brawl in a bar in lowtown Madripoor. Logan wins the brawl. Odds were paid off, and Logan walks off triumphant, and has a drink with Tiger Tyger. Outside, where Roughouse layed unconscious, Coy is seen selling his (Roughouse) service to a man with a metallic arm.
Back in the palace, Chief Tai and Prince Baran were having dinner, and was talking about how "Patch" had discovered some items that Coy had shipped over which contained cocaine hidden in them. Once again, the man with the metallic arm enters, and gives the prince money, saying that he was sorry for it was his shipment that he was sending to Coy.
Next morning, while Logan was enjoying the early hours of the day, his heightened senses smells cocaine in a truck below. He follows the truck by hopping from rooftop to rooftop. He sees Roughouse thrown out of the truck, and the metallic man paying the drivers of the truck. Logan sees Roughouse and the man board a ship that was leaving.
Meanwhile, we are brought back into the past to a scene in New York where Hammer Cody, high on PSP, had bursts out of a Crack house and was being chased down by Daredevil. Daredevil and Cody has a brief fight, but Daredevil comes out triumphant. But Cody wasn't down yet, and he knocks out Daredevil. But suddenly, Cody collapses and dies, leaving Daredevil and the law enforcement wondering why he would die. The drug-riddled body of Cody became part of a big jurisdicial dispute, and the case eventually disappeared, with no resolutions at the end.
Back at the present, Roughouse is seen tied up. The man with the metallic armor reveals himself to be called Geist, and he was going to use Roughouse as an unwilling participant to test out his highly unusual batch of cocaine. Little did they know though that Logan was sneaking on board...to the sounds of Roughouse screaming.
