Returning to Japan, a place that has brought him much pleasure and pain over the years, Logan finds himself taking on an army of the undead in WOLVERINE: SOULTAKER.
Arriving in Tokyo to investigate mysterious voices that have been plaguing his former lover, and his daughter's caretaker, Yukio, Wolverine ends up investigating a strange talisman that has his trusted friend Kenichiro, a master of the Japanese mystic arts, terrified. Known as the Mark of Mana, the artifact, which Yukio stole, holds demonic forces beyond mortal control.
Caught in the middle of a Buddhist brawl, Logan awakens the sleeping priestess Mana and in doing so unwittingly unleashes her evil twin Hana, a powerful warrior woman under control of the demon Ryuki. Caught in a deadly sibling rivalry with Japan as the prize, Wolverine must find a way to save the Land of the Rising Sun from a demonic destruction.
Writer Akira Yoshida and artist Shin Nagasawa take us to the dimensions beyond our understanding as Logan suits up in samurai gear to battle zombies galore in WOLVERINE: SOULTAKER.For more Wolverine, check out Marvel Digital Comics Unlimited.
