Marvel Must Haves: Wolverine #1–3

When the X-Men’s most popular mutant gets a brand–new ongoing series, it stands to reason that the early issues would practically fly off from comic book shelves. This edition of Marvel Must Haves recognizes that reality by giving Wolverine fans a second chance to read the first three issues in full–color comic book form. A teenage girl on the run from mysterious pursuers reaches out to a quiet but tough–looking loner staying in the flophouse apartment across the hall from her. She calls him “mean man” based on his appearance, a fitting name for the temperamental hero known as Wolverine.

Fortunately for young Lucy, the “mean man’s” soul is a good one, and she’s picked the right stranger to ask for help. This grim tale puts Wolverine in an environment few of his X-men tales do: helping an all–too–normal runaway against all–too–common killers. Written by Greg Rucka and drawn by Darick Robertson.
