Christmas Countdown: Wolverine #49

Rob Williams, Laurence Campbell and Kris Justice are the creative team for 2006′s “Wolverine” No. 49, in which Logan is sent department-store shopping on Christmas Eve.  He’s not particularly happy about the idea, but as a hostage situation develops in Manhattan, it’s fortunate Wolverine was on hand.

While he’s in the jam-packed store, there’s a kidnapping, and a bomb threat from a group claiming to be a Christmas cult.  Logan, however, must sniff out the truth and save the heiress before time runs out.

Pretty good done-in-one Christmas story that’s reminiscent in some ways of “Die Hard.”
