Publisher Comments:

To many, Wolverine is Marvel's finest hero — the best there is at what he does. Genetics, environment, divine intervention: what incredible forces created this man — the world's greatest killing machine with a heart as big as the great outdoors?

For years we followed Wolverine in the desperate search for his past, from the wilds of the Canadian wilderness to the teeming cities of Japan and beyond. But despite his perseverance and longing for the truth, Wolverine remained an enigma to himself and all those around him.

Welcome to the greatest story never told!

Synopsis:

This romantic period piece defied industry expectations. At long last, all is revealed about the incredible forces that molded Wolverine, the world's most perfect killing machine with a heart as big as the great outdoors.

Synopsis:

For decades, Wolverine's shadowy past has been shrouded in mystery. But before he was the savage mainstay of the X-Men, before he was a tormented secret agent codenamed Weapon X, even before he was a barroom brawler in the wilds of Canada...he was a child. And now, in this landmark event, Marvel reveals all! The birth and childhood of young James Howlett...the secrets and intrigue of his family history...the first struggle with his subconscious savagery that culminated in tragedy...and how James' flight from everything he once knew led to the forging of the man known as Logan!

Great comic but i didn't care for the similies to the X-men Movie they had not place in this book. But in the next year all we will hearand see will be about this movie! That's right for those of you not watching your IMDB pages Woverine: Origins is in POST-preduction and will be released in 2009. I want to know if the movie will be correlated to this novel or not. Any oppenions appreciated.
Excelsior!

This is the greatest limited series of all time. I cried at the end and I'm crying writing this comment. If you were about to die and God gave you the choice to read one graphic novel. I say read this one. This graphic novel has moved me more than any comic, TV show or film.

I can only give it 5 stars but if I could i would give it more
