Wolverine: Flies to a Spider (2009) – TPB

Synopsis:

Collecting five tales of all-out Wolverine action! First, you’ve heard the story before: A beautiful woman picks up a guy in a bar. They have a couple drinks, show each other a good time. And when he wakes up the next morning, the guy finds himself in a bathtub full of ice, with two fewer kidneys than he had the night before. Well, Wolverine’s heard this story too and he ain’t too thrilled by it. Then, someone or something is laying down roadtraps for passing motorists. Is it the work of a serial killer? Or is the entire town in on the crime? The only way for Logan to know for sure is to offer himself as bait. Next, see Wolverine at his fiercest as he meets the Road Dawgs, the meanest, nastiest, most jacked-up bike gang you could ever encounter. Plus, Wolverine heads to Vegas. 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. Finally, in “The Anniversary,” it’s terror at thirty-thousand feet! As Logan heads to Japan for the anniversary of Mariko’s death, his 747 is suddenly seized by a group of terrorists who plan on blowing up the craft over downtown Honolulu!
