Item Biography

"Sword Quest"

Telambang, a small, out-of-the-way island in the heart of the Indonesian Archipelago, Wolverine makes his debut in his first monthly on-going series.

Banapur Khan, the Prince of Pirates, is commissioned by the Cult of the Black Blade to recover the Muramasa sword. Khan and around 100 of his pirate goons hijack an aircraft after it makes an emergency landing on the island.

Wolverine, under the codename Patch, is then dispatched by Mariko Yashida, the woman he loves, to learn the fate of her personal secretary, Kojima Noburo, a passenger on the plane.

Wolverine arrives to find a dying Kojima, and is attacked by Khan and his thugs. After a bloody battle "Patch" has disposed of the pirates and learns from Kojima that they thought he had the blade, and informed "Patch" that it was sent by way of two other couriers.

"Patch" then travels to Madripoor to meet the couriers. The first being Linsday McCabe, an actress, and roomate to Jessica Drew (Spider-Woman). Lindsay is soon kidnapped upon arrival in Madripoor and questioned about the sword.

Almost as soon as she was kidnapped, she is saved by "Patch". Lindsay then informs "Patch" that Jessica is on her way with the sword and is meeting with Kojima as soon as she arrives. Little does Jessica know that Kojima has died and someone pretending to be him will be waiting, and they will most likely kill her on the spot for the sword. So "Patch" and Lindsay must find Jessica before the Cult of the Black Blade do in the next issue.

I'm a private collector and former comic book shop owner that deals the more rare, unique and limited edition comics. Whether you're looking for several issues to fill in your gaps or those lower print run final issues and character appearances, Metropolis Connections can help make your collection complete.

METROCONN was the first store to set up shop on and we're still going strong!

Just like a new version history of a computer program, Metropolis Connections occasionally replaces all old inventory in our shop with fresh and gorgeous comics for your collection. As of June 2015, a new inventory is being added and so if it's listed in my store, it's in stock.

I have thousands of comics, and I appreciate your collection just as much you do whether you have 5000 comics or 50! All of our comics come shipped to your home bagged and boarded, and are stored in a smoke-free, pet-free, and Kryptonite-free environment!
