Art & Cover by DAS PASTORAS
What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas, right? But Logan’s gone to Vegas in search of something that’s been hiding there a bit too long. In a place where anyone will wager on anything, it’s no wonder that Logan finds himself in a game of Russian Roulette surrounded by rowdy Russian mobsters. But they’re not the real problem. Logan’s got his eyes trained on the man sitting across from him. The guy with the revolver in his hand and the killer smile who is much more than he seems. Bang.

Written by JASON AARON
Pencils & 50/50 Cover by RON GARNEY
In the third issue of this all-new ongoing series from the same creative team as last year’s sold-out “Get Mystique” storyline, the super soldiers of Strikeforce X have Wolverine trapped in the jungles of Colombia. They are heavily armed, ruthlessly brutal and outnumber him 12 to 1. But when one of their ranks disappears and screams begin to ring out through the darkness each night, the soldiers ask themselves…who’s really the hunted?
