Title: "Memory of peace"
Mary Jo Duffy - Writer

Tom Palmer - Inker

Another standalone Wolverine story with no impact on his character or the larger Marvel world. This one does have art by Klaus Janson and Tom Palmer, which is actually an odd combination, if you think about it. Klaus Janson's style is deliberately kind of wild and surreal, while Tom Palmer's inks often serve to reigning an artist in. That sometimes works well with a more abstract artist; Palmer inking Gene Colan, for example, is always nice. But i feel like Janson needs a softer touch. You don't want to be too literal about what he's drawing or it starts to look weird.
Anyway, this story is about a newly inserted friend from Wolverine's past, a rich Japanese family living in Madripoor that had adopted an American son.
In the present, the son has gotten tired of waiting around for his inheritance. So he kills his adopted parents. And then Wolverine kills him.
