From Marvel: “5 Books, 5 Heroes—1 unforgettable story of heroes pushed to their limits. It is 17th century Japan, a time and place of violent upheaval, wandering Ronin, and mysterious Geisha. Into this strange and dangerous world come Wolverine, Pyslocke, Punisher, Hulk and Deadpool. Five of Marvel’s greatest heroes…as you’ve never seen them before. Each has been wronged by a powerful tyrant. Each has taken a solemn vow…of vengeance!”

On sale March 2, 2011.

Being a fan of ‘Vagabond’ (the life of Miyamoto Musashi) and ‘Lone Wolf and Cub’, I was intrigued by this project. And while there is an interesting twist along the way, I don’t know when and if this alternate tale of Logan will be completed, as the Hulk takes center stage in the next issue.

So count me intrigued, but feeling left somewhat incomplete.

  1. I did enjoy this book but I had no idea what was going on. I was a bit lost until the final pages.

    I’m pretty sure that was the Ronin universe Deadpool that buried one of the three Logan brothers. (Or whatever Logan’s Ronin universe name was.)
