It's a tangled web of Great Depression pulp, with familiar faces like you've never seen them before!

Wolverine: Flies to a Spider – It's New Year's Eve, and tonight, like every night, they've gathered at the road stop saloon called the 'Rat Trap.' The Road Dawgs. The meanest, nastiest, most jacked-up biker gang you ever could meet. But tonight there's a stranger sitting on the stool at the end of the bar. Someone who's come here to pick a fight. Someone who's hunting far bigger game than these roughnecks, and knows exactly how to get its attention. Before the stroke of midnight, he'll get his wish.
