  1. I really didn’t like how they drew wolvie’s face in this series, very similar to the Punisher mini Damaging Evidence.

  2. I’m glad to see a lesser known famous cover. I’ve never read this mini series, but now I wish I did ! Thanks for picking a new amazing cover for us Dig. :) It’s always a pleasure to visit your site.

  3. I wouldn’t want to see Logan drawn like this every issue, but I enjoy different interpretations of someone as scary looking as Wolverine.

  4. Was this story considered canon?

  5. Probably not canon, but I try to fit such stories into continuity with a note saying that it might not have happened.

  6. How many issues was this one ?
