A book with the Marvel character Wolverine. In this chapter of his life he has no idea who he is and he cannot recall his past. All he knows is that his expenses are taken care of anonymously. One day he sees a picture of a person who is familiar to him and he pursues this lead.

I think this is one of the better books based on a Marvel character. This book was two stories in one as the first is Wolverine's present situation and the other deals with Nazi Germany and his dealings with the villain o

Logan kehilangan memorinya. Selain namanya,dia tidak mengetahui siapakah dirinya yang sebenar. Namun,penemuan sebuah gambar di dalam sebuah buku menimbulkan satu tanda tanya. Di dalam gambar itu,terdapat dirinya. Buku itu adalah mengenai tentera Kanada di Itali ketika Perang Dunia Kedua yang berlaku pada 60 tahun yang lalu. Anehnya,rupanya di dalam gambar itu adalah sama sepertinya! Tidak langsung menunjukkan perbezaan usia walaupun puluhan tahun telah berlalu. Rasa ingin tahu yang amat mendalam ...more

I loved it very much! It was a book that actually had me chilled to the bone! I had nightmares from it for three nights in a row. That just shows how great it really was. Beautifully written, Lifeblood with keep the reader at the edge of their seat, every second of reading. I highly recommend it to any Wolverine fan. For people who don't know of Wolverine, Lifeblood is definitely one of the books to get to know him.

a very good wolverine book.
Wolverine is living in a apartment and he has no memory of why he is there. He is given money and a case of fine canadian whiskey every month.
He starts to get some of his memory back when he sees a display honoring veterns of old wars. Sure enough, he knows the solier in the picture but it is WWII. Then he does a little investigating at the library and sees a photo of himself in with the troops.
He leaves and starts a journy back to germany to a concentration camp wh

This book holds a number of great qualities that many comic book fans will probably find irritating. The over the top action that many fellow comic geek is used to from major motion pictures is largely absent from this somber thought provoking look at Wolverine. It is very reminiscent of the deeper moments that Logan/James/Wolvy had back in the late eighties.

The piece delves into an interment at a concentration camp, and the subsequent escape.

If you are, like me, a die hard comic book fan and en
This is a weird one because I enjoyed it and disliked it in equal parts. I loved everything to do with Logan - the way he was trying to piece his life back together, his quiet and intense nature and re-discovery of himself. But the whole thing with von Strucker and the Mujahideen soldiers bored me a little. I mean, the guy was a Nazi, there's no need to make him an even bigger twat. His being a Nazi and coveting immortality and dominion over humanity pretty much swings it in the bad guy departme ...more

this book's about wolverine....
i think most people know this guy....
well anyway, he lost his memory.....
poor guy....
and he tried to seek what memory he has lost....
this book tells about wolverine's past back to the 1945 during the NAZI. can't really tell about the story coz....
this seems to be the 3rd or 4th book.
those of you who wants to know about wolverine....
this is a good book to learn more about him
A very good story, definitely recommended. The German phrases in the book should have been edited by someone who knew German though, because nearly half of them had grammar or spelling mistakes.

If you'll like the WWII Germany setting in this novel, I recommend X-Men: Magneto Testament graphic novel as a good read.
