Wolverine: Killing

(Art by Kent Williams)

Troubling dreams lead Logan to seek out the wilderness of Tibet.  There he encounters an isolated community with sinister secrets and is forced to contemplate the balance of surviving versus living, as well as the nature of killing.

This is an enjoyable story of Wolverine taking himself off on a quest to explore the line between his humanity and his animalistic nature, with a weird cult-like Tibetan society thrown in for good measure.  Unfortunately it doesn't really break any new ground.  Everything that Logan thinks or deals with here has been done numerous times in other stories and, frankly, often done better.

So, not a bad story but also not a particularly original one either.
