(by Bruce Jones and Jorge Lucas)

Logan (Wolverine) takes his foster daughter, Amiko to the carnival for some down-time. When his mutant temper gets the best of him, he finds himself in hot water with his kid and stranded on a strange, surreal island. Alone, wounded and unable to regenerate, Logan must contend with a host of strange characters and occurances: including a stand-off with the beast within.

Xisles is beautifully-drawn and the introduction is well-presented. Unfortunately the cliche, force-fed "artsy-fartsy"-ness of the whole affair doesn't make for anything particularly accessable or memorable. It's completely obvious what's going on to everyone but the hero, which pretty much destroys the whole point of the excersize. Worse: absolutely nothing of consequence happens here. It has no affect on any of the other X-men or Wolverine storylines. It is completely disposable.

If you're going to check it out: do it for the art. It really is lovely. The writing... notsomuch.

Next time leave the psychoanalysis to characters with more mental depth than Wolverine O-o;
