From Marvel: “Gritty scribe Frank Tieri and artist Juan Santacruz bring two of Marvel’s toughest heroes together for an all new limited series, featuring covers by the legendary Joe Jusko! Matsuo—the man who killed Yuriko—is back from the dead and has one mission—kill Wolverine. But when he recruits two deadly foes of Hercules, the Olympian joins forces with Logan to show Matsuo just what it means to battle the best there is at what they do.”

I admit that I wasn’t a big fan of Frank Tieri during his ‘Wolverine’ run — so this miniseries debut caught me by surprise.

There is a delightful nod towards the ‘first’ meeting between Wolverine and Hercules at The Sign of the Lion Bar (Marvel Treasury Edition #26 back in 1980), and Hercules is a hoot throughout.

It remains to be seen whether the Matsu’o Tsurayaba storyline will live up to expectations, but for now, I am willing to give Tieri the benefit of the doubt…

  1. My only one problem with this book is the preview which describes Matsu’o Tsurayaba as being resurrected. But in the book itself the first page states the story takes place a few years ago. Since I am a chronology nazi this rubs me the wrong way since Matsu’o Tsurayaba died in the Psylocke issue #4 in 2010. Chris Yost did a phenomenal job in resolving that conflict. =)
