Publisher's summary[]

#1: THE THRILL IS THE KILL! Wolverine has lived one of the longest and most storied lives in comics history. Now witness the untold greatest battles of Logan’s life – against a Predator! One Yautja seeks the greatest prey in existence – and finds it in Weapon X. From the blood-ridden snows of the Canadian wilderness to the sword-slinging streets of Madripoor, Wolverine and a Predator break everything in their paths on their way to the ultimate victory…or glorious death.

#2: "YOU PICKED THE WRONG MUTANT TO HUNT!" And none knows it better than a Predator! After their first encounter in the Canadian wilderness, Wolverine thought he had moved on — to new fights, worse wounds and tragedies he only wants to forget. But a Yautja does not forget an enemy… At a time when Logan barely knows his own name and is running black ops side by side with Sabretooth and Maverick as “Team X,” how can he make it through round two with a Predator he doesn’t remember fighting?! Plus, the first glimpse at Weapon X!

#3: TIME TO BLEED! The most gruesome chapter yet! Years after his first encounter with the Yautja, Wolverine’s gone feral – just the way the Weapon X program likes him! If the Predator thought the mutant was hard to kill before…now he’ll meet the real beast. But the prize this time isn’t just the kill. Now Wolverine carries something precious within him, something a Predator’s never encountered. An indestructible metal that would give the hunter the edge over prey on any world…

#4: THE BEST THERE IS AT WHAT THEY DO! Who will take the final trophy? Will Wolverine’s adamantium skull join the bones of countless others? The Predator’s long hunt catches up to the present day as Wolverine sets his trap. But what hope does he have against an enemy who’s slaughtered prey across the universe?
