So much has been written about this very influential miniseries that I don’t want to belabor it on my little site. Suffice to say that before this, Wolverine was a favorite of some X-Men fans but after this book, he was a favorite of just about everyone. The book added depth and weight and backstory (but not too much!), and was one of the early books to contain a heavy Japanese influence.
And here’s an influence this book had that you probably haven’t heard before:
David Mack stole Frank Miller’s close-up face shot for Kabuki #1.
