Wolverine Noir (Marvel Noir Series) by Stuart Moore and C.P. Smith
Thoughts Before Reading:
This was a Christmas gift from my sister who knows my love of film noir, mysteries, private investigators, and the 1940s.
This series involves taking characters from the Marvel Universe and combining them with elements from Pulp fiction novels and film noir.
It is 1937 in the Bowery of New York City. Jim Logan (Wolverine) is the head of Logan & Logan Private Detective Agency with his brother Dog (Sabertooth), who is not mentally there after a horrible accident.
Logan is the best knife expert, using as many as six knives. However, he hasn’t had very much luck lately. There has been no cases coming his way.
That all changes when the beautiful Mariko Yashida walks into his office and brings a case that will bring up the past and a world of painful memories Logan hoped to never face again.
