Kitty Pryde & Wolverine

 KIPW   (Marvel, 1984-1985)

™ and ©1984 Marvel Entertainment Group

This story takes place not long after Kitty Pryde joined the X-Men (when she was still called “Ariel”). The tale began when Kitty learned that her father, a prominent Illinois banker, was being blackmailed by the Yakuza (Japanese mob). They threatened to reveal that he had tampered with his bank’s books unless he went with them to Japan to help them in their money-laundering operations. Kitty overheard the conversation and resolved to follow her father to Japan and rescue him. Quickly discovering that she was way over her head, Kitty called on fellow X-Man Wolverine, who quickly traveled to Japan to aid her.

In this action-packed series, the two struggle together to survive the Yakuza and save Kitty’s father. Along the way, they encounter both Yukio, a dangerous ronin with a heart of gold, and Lady Mariko, Wolverine’s great love, and the incidental head of a powerful crime family.
