Synopsis:	In Madripoor, Gitte chides beggar children, who think she's an
American tourist. When the boy Aldo steals her bomb-filled briefcase, she gives
chase, gun blazing. He manages to hide, and another kid gets Logan's help. He
finds Gitte, who scrambles his perceptions and gets away. He recognizes her as a
Dutch mutant and assassin.
	Gitte grabs Rose and makes her show him all the beggars' hiding places. Logan
goes to their Fagin, Ganif, and bullies him into giving him Aldo's headband, so
he can trace the scent. He reaches the boy just as Gitte does; they spar; she
blinds and stabs him; he fights past the blindness and slashes her; she shoots
him and then Rose while aiming for Aldo; Logan slices her gun; she gets her
briefcase and flees, but the bomb explodes in her face.

Synopsis:	Logan revels in the seediness of Madripoor. Morrow has called him to
Wharfside to collect an old debt from Teheran. He is starting a gang war with
Piggot and wants Logan to guard his six-year-old, Gabriel. He tells the boy a
bedtime story about Canada and a boy, Logan, who was rejected by his people as a
runt and ran into a pack of wolverines, who adopted him. He grew in the wild,
helped by his healing factor, till trappers netted him (he had been freeing
animals from their traps). The wolverines attacked the trappers; a trapper shot
one; Logan broke free and killed all the trappers, providing carrion for the pack
all winter.
	Logan guts some attempted assassins; Morrow returns home, with Piggot's thugs
close behind. Morrow is caught; Piggot is about to impale him, when Gabriel rams
him with a serving cart.
	The battle ends in stalemate, and the police investigate but make no arrests.
Logan hopes Gabriel will lead the next generation of thugs.

Synopsis:	6 days ago, Logan stood over many fallen at Bando Saburo's home in
Japan. The gang who murdered them confronts him, and he kills them all, surviving
a bullet bouncing off his adamantium skull.
	Before Logan had adamantium, Bando was his friend. He visited him, seeking
serenity, and was served tea in a cherished family heirloom. Bando adopted his
nephew, poor son of an American father.
	In Madripoor, Logan plays poker with Claymore, who offered to show him his
art collection. By reading Claymore's body language with his hyper-senses, Logan
wins his net worth, but he demands only Bando's heirloom bowl and the name of the
man he got it from: Weston, the nephew. Claymore rushes Logan, who tosses him out
the window to his death, and the bodyguards let him leave but notify Weston, whom
Logan finds about to commit ritual suicide. Logan tells him he killed his family
in vain, since Bando was already dying of cancer. Weston and his servant attack,
so Logan kills them both. He lays the bowl on Bando's grave in Japan.

Logan tells her not to stir up trouble.
	Mercenaries go to the villagers of Rumika, remote and renown as honorable
fighters, and ask them to help save the world by guarding the Master Form
(McGuffin alert!). Coy wants it hidden, since it is the key to the Lazarus
Project. He received it from Broker, whom he instructs to find his niece and
nephew. Coy and Broker report on the Project to the prince. His bodyguard Jessica
overhears Merrick and Page plotting to attack a village, so they sic a giant
robot, Pinocchio, on her.
	Logan finds her beaten in an alley and sends her and Lindsay back to the U.S.
He storms the palace, confronts Page, and spars with Pinocchio, who is made of

	Editor: Bob Harras
	Editor-in-Chief: Tom DeFalco
Synopsis:	Logan is drinking in his bar when Japanese mafia (Yakuza) enter and
pun on his name: Ro-Gan, Japanese for dissipation and cancer. They machine-gun
him but just ruin his suit.
	Dai-Kumo and Dr. Malheur demonstrate a cure for cancer, extracted from the
brains of monkeys native to Madripoor. Baran will let them harvest the monkeys,
and he, Coy, and Tyger will get a percentage, selling the cure only to the very
rich. Logan is the only problem; Tyger argues against harming him and upsetting
the balance of power, and she doesn't trust Dai-Kumo.
	Logan's vision has gone red: the beast within him is free. He kills many and
brings down the roof but is felled by gunfire; not for long, though, and he
survives a sword in the back.
	Archie tries to get help, but the prince told the cops to keep out of it.
	Dragonhead, Seven and Eleven see their fellows fail, so they take a drug,
Thunderbolt, made from the monkey brains, which makes them berserk. They reenter
the bar and show Logan their tattoos, in the shape of the dragon Ryu. Seven and
Eleven impale themselves on Logan's claws to trap him, while Dragonhead tries to
behead him. When Archie and Tyger enter the bar, they find corpses and a blood
trail out the back door. Dragonhead pulls the pins out of grenades and falls into
the water with Logan. Sharks circle; grenades explode; Logan rises, having set
the sharks on Dragonhead.

Synopsis:	Logan remembers fighting drugged Yakuza (last iss.) and wakes up
smashing things in Tyger's penthouse. His body has not finished healing: cigar
smoke leaks from his chest.
	Dai-Kumo and Coy have their men gathering endangered monkeys. Their
Montagnard tribesman guide says they should leave some for later, but they're not
environmentally friendly. Goro, who can be slain only by a blade held by a dead
man, is sent by Dai-Kumo to finish off Logan. Reiko, whose father gambled and is
in debt to them, helps. Goro stabs Logan through a door with a sword; he goes
down and has a vision of Jean Grey, who gets him to pull out the sword and save
his life.
	Dai-Kumo has Malheur using the monkey brain catalyst to make Zap, a cheap
drug, and Thunderbolt, its concentrate, which causes ecstasy ending in death.
Irrational, but no more so than dying from tobacco, alcohol, or saturated fats
(or cocaine and crack).
	Goro hands Dai-Kumo a photo of Logan with a sword through his chest, which
satisfies him. Tyger gets Logan to the docks, where he finds a warehouse piled
with dead monkeys. The tribesman indicates the bad guys went to Japan.

	Editor-in-Chief: Tom DeFalco
Synopsis:	Logan has himself shipped as a corpse to Osaka, Japan, but the
corrupt customs official informed Dai-Kumo, who buries him in his own plot as an
honorable enemy. Archie and Tyger have no choice but to let him; she had given
Logan a curare-like drug to keep him catatonic. Logan wakes in the coffin and
digs himself out, finding only Reiko near the grave, who directs him to
Dai-Kumo's mansion.
	Dai-Kumo demonstrates Thunderbolt by drugging a wolf and letting it loose on
three tigers. Logan crashes the party and scares off the wolf and the villains.
He confronts Malheur, who drops him in the vat of Thunderbolt and gets dragged
in, too, and his brain cells explode. Logan survives, slashes out of the vat, and
faces Goro, who thinks Logan is the fulfillment of the prophecy (last iss.).
Logan slices him down but doesn't kill him: the Thunderbolt will do that, and he
doesn't believe in mumbo-jumbo. He finds Dai-Kumo dead, killed by Reiko, who is
now free. Tyger and Archie fly him back to Madripoor.

Synopsis:	Logan hunts salmon in Buffalo Woods State (?) Park in northern
Alberta, Canada. Mounties investigate, since he's naked in winter, and ask if
he's seen Athabasca Ike, wanted for multiple murders. Logan smells him on the
wind and says he's on foot with a hostage, the Golightly girl. He gets in the
RCMP's jeep to help; the sergeant tells the old Indian tale of the Hunter in
Darkness, who couldn't be stopped by bullet or bear trap.
	Ike sees the jeep and shoots Morris; Doolin feels guilty about that. He and
Logan track Ike in pitch darkness and are attacked by the Hunter. Doolin turns on
a flashlight, and Ike shoots him; Doolin remembers parachuting in WWII and
similarly endangering his men with a light. Ike shoots the Hunter, which now
recalls Logan freeing it from a bear trap.

realizes Logan was both his Cpl. Logan in WWII, who killed many Nazis, and the

	Asst. Editor: Suzanne Gaffney
	Editor: Bob Harras
	Editor-in-Chief: Tom DeFalco
Synopsis:	In a snowy wood, something with claws kills DuBois. In the Yukon
Mudslide bar in Dawson City, Logan realizes he's broken his beer mug and he
thinks he's been hallucinating. The locals make fun of him to pick a fight; he
beats them all. Then he almost loses control and kills Moose but reins himself
in, and Saskia gets him outside before the sheriff comes. Logan senses something
in the wind and pops claws; a pack of wendigos attacks; he kills five, and the
rest flee with Saskia captive. The cleansing snow burns away the unclean wendigo
corpses, while Logan suits up.
	The wendigos kills a family in a lonely cabin. Logan feels their bloodlust
and has to check his claws to make sure he didn't do it himself. He realizes
telepathy is involved and attacks the pack. A wendigo zaps him, setting him on
fire, but then he can see his healing factor taking over.
	The whole landscape is alive with color: he is on the astral plane, in the
Nirvana-like Alshra, and the wendigos take human form. They are Neuri, whose
homeland is in the Urals. In harmony with Mother Earth, they moved north to avoid
warfare and changed their form to adapt to Siberia. Using their minds they
explored space, till pollution destroyed their environment. Some became renegades
and attacked humans; eating flesh turned them into wendigos. The good Neuri
tracked them to Canada but can't kill them without becoming wendigos, so they
want Logan to do the deed. A Neuri accompanies him, to make sure he's not
overcome by the dark side.
	When they reach the cabin, Logan's blood lust takes over, and he attacks the
wendigos as they attack the posse that was hunting Logan. The good Neuri heals a
wounded man; the posse flees in terror; the Neuri heals Logan, who is damaged
beyond his healing factor.
	One wendigo survives, attacks the posse, and even disrupts the Alshra, taking
its power to subvert Logan. Logan fights mentally and physically but can't stop
him, and he kills the good Neuri and leaves. Logan tracks him to a cave, the
blood lust pounding in his head, and finds only Saskia. He realizes she's the
wendigo and attacks, killing her, and ashamed of the blood lust he shares with
her.
	Explosion; cave-in; Logan digs himself out. The Neuri return home. Logan
could be like them except for his adamantium, which forces him into an eternal
conflict with himself. He's not sure he'd like it, anyway.

Synopsis:	Note: this is Blood and Claws part 1.
	Logan finds Judd working as a bouncer in a dive in Vancouver (evidently
between Alpha Flight 91-94), filling in for Bolinsky, who broke an arm. She stabs
an innocent fly; big guys come looking to beat up Judd; Logan kills a fly,
impaling it, his own arm, and the table with a knife; the men run.
	In Osaka, cops patrol the site of Logan's rampage (iss. 33) and find
Deathstrike prowling; she kills them with her extensible adamantium-tipped
fingers. She gets data on Logan, tracing him to Madripoor, and Pierce has Gateway
teleport her there. She confronts Tyger and takes a waitress hostage; Tyger gives
her Logan's postcard from Vancouver, and she teleports away.
	Logan wishes he could get rid of his demons, like Judd did (Alpha Flight 50).
It's beer and fishing, and Judd gives him a volume of Hemmingway; he knew him and
has a snapshot of them together; Logan somehow recognizes Inez in the picture,
too.
	At that moment, Deathstrike orders Gateway to take her to the spot Logan
"gazes upon," and his vortex takes her, Logan, and Judd (in his natural, large
size) to Spain in 1937. They're in the bullring, and Judd takes this chance to be
a matador once more, while Logan drinks with Hemmingway. A Nazi bombing raid
interrupts: they're in Guernica during the Spanish Civil War. Logan tosses a
sword and sticks a particularly nasty pilot.
	Deathstrike watches him and Judd flee with Hemmingway, and then Nazis capture
her.

Synopsis:	Note: this is Blood and Claws part 2.
	Nazis chase Hemmingway's car, machine gunning it till it wrecks. Logan rushes
a machine gun nest with a ball-peen hammer and an adjustable wrench.
	Schlachter orders Deathstrike hung for killing German soldiers with her bare
hands, but she doesn't die. She rips the noose with her neck muscles and offers
him a deal: her father, Lord Darkwind, is currently a pilot in Japan and can make
him an army of super-soldiers, if they can get him Logan's adamantium.
	Present, in Australia: a vortex heads for Gateway and spews crow feathers.
Pierce realizes Deathstrike is in the past and may change it.
	A Messerschmidt strafes the camp, and Judd is hit before Logan machine guns
the plane. They have to find a doctor, and Logan lets them shoot at a prisoner
boy before leaving. He remembers all this from his past, although Judd doesn't.
	The boy gets away, Nazis catch him, and he tells them which mountain pass
they're going over. Logan smells them coming and uses the machine gun to cover
the retreat. Turns out to be broken, though, so it's back to claws. He cuts down
the Germans, so Deathstrike advances to challenge him.

	Logan, berserk, attacks the Nazis. Deathstrike climbs the cliff wall and
attacks from above; Logan head-butts her away, and Schlachter's tank runs her
over; she smashes it and him. Gateway's time vortex whirls, and Judd runs to make
sure he's not left behind.
	The present in Australia: Pierce is making a child, Elsie, in a tank. The
vortex blows Schlachter's map into his hand; he realizes that up till now,
Deathstrike and Logan only killed people who died in an avalanche in the pass,
but Schlachter was supposed to live 6 more years. While Pierce was distracted,
Elsie has become super-smart.
	The vortex sweeps a few years to Japan, where Deathstrike's father flies
kamikaze into a ship. Logan and Deathstrike struggle and fall into the sea; they
pass by Spiral making Deathstrike into a living cybernetic weapon; they bounce
into Manhattan, where they first fought (UXM 204), and fall into the river.
	Logan and Judd come up in Vancouver harbor; Judd says the rowboat overturned,
not remembering the rest. He had been in Guernica, but his memory was scrambled
by a German bomb. His photo of Hemingway now shows Logan there.
	Deathstrike is back in Australia. Pierce is making an android Logan, as bait,
so Elsie can kill him.

	Albert and Elsie want Logan to find them so they can kill him. Pierce tells
Deathstrike Elsie is a walking bomb. Bone-Breaker doesn't tell him he
accidentally gave her too much intelligence. Elsie can't reprogram herself, so
she increases Albert's intelligence, giving him a chance against Logan. Then she
removes her own head to install a radio modem. Logan is caught in heavy traffic,

Synopsis:	Logan fights Creed underwater. In the next tunnel, Cable refuses to
risk drowning, so Elsie removes her head and bites him while her body gets his
gun and shoots the door down. Elsie reconnects herself, but all are trapped with
the other debris against a grate. Masque activates the grate's self-cleaning
mechanism, not realizing they're there, and Elsie goes to stop it before they're
killed, while Creed tries to kill Logan and Cable. Elsie re-beheads herself and
detonates her body to stop the machinery. Masque washes them all into the river,
where Forge has SHIELD patrolling, and they rescue them. Creed breaks free of the
restraints; Elsie, almost out of power, bites him, and they fall into the river.
Albert finds them, slashes Creed, and recharges Elsie.

zoo, sneers at the half-tame animals. He finds the wolverine bleeding and Linus,
deranged, who likes to torture animals. He shoots at Logan, who blocks the muzzle
with his claw, and the explosion knocks Linus down. Logan sees he's killed the
zoo cleaner, so he lets the wolverine out to chase him.

for help and being swallowed by monstrous jaws, with a cruise ship in the
background.
	He has this dream repeatedly, so he finds the ship and books passage. Three
single women are on vacation, all pregnant and with the same obstetrician. One
takes a dip in the pool and is killed. Logan dives in and is attacked by the
monster; the fetus appears and says he's the real target; Logan gets away.
	Logan patrols the ship that night, but another woman is grabbed and gutted in
the elevator. Logan attacks the monster, which tricks him into slicing the
elevator cable; Logan grabs the car, but it falls to the bottom, and two
passengers are killed (Otis invented the safety elevator in 1857).
	Logan pushes security away and gets to the third woman, now under attack. The
monster says he's immortal and waging an eternal battle; Logan doesn't care: he
knocks him into the sea and slashes away, and then pushes it into the ship's
propeller and makes sushi.

Synopsis:	Logan is at the World Trade Center, where he had his motorcycle
chained for weeks. A cop had wanted to impound it, but SHIELD asked her to use
discretion, so she confronts "N.F.N. Logan" to get his story. He tells her what
happened since iss. 40; she ponders and then rips up the ticket.
	In Westchester, a widow tries to stop Tracy, her druggie son, from robbing
her, but he takes her gun and beats her. He goes back to the convenience store
where he used to work and robs and kills.
	On his way to the mansion, Logan hears a shot: cops putting down a rabid dog.
He remembers his life with Silver Fox and their dog Blue, who was rabid and had
to be killed.
	Tracy runs over a kid and then Logan, who suspects something when he sees
handlebars stuck to his fender. He uses up his ammo, and Logan still advances. A
cop sees Tracy pointing the now empty gun and shoots him.
	Logan hadn't been able to shoot his dog, so Silver Fox did it.
