Widescreen Wolverine

Posted by under *like, Comics |

I overlooked this in all my excitement over the Age of X, but Marvel recently unveiled another ultra-wide Marko Djurdjevic poster image, this time featuring the history of Wolverine. This image will be available as an oversized poster and as a set of interlocking variant covers to a group of Wolverine titles scheduled for December and January (Uncanny X-Force #3, Wolverine: The Best There Is #1, Wolverine #4, Daken: Dark Wolverine #4, X-23 #4, Wolverine: The Best There Is #2).

The other images of the set featured in the link above were released in similar fashion, but I really don’t understand Marvel’s publishing choices regarding how they allocated these variants. The Spider-Man images were used as the regular covers for issues of Amazing Spider-Man (#642-647), while the Avengers images were used as 1:25 variant covers that go for around $10 (New Avengers #1, Avengers #1, Secret Avengers #1, Avengers Academy #1, Hawkeye and Mockingbird #1, Avengers: Prime #1). The really agitating part was that the X-Men images were used as more scarce 1:75 variants that sell for closer to $60! I would have bought every one of them had they been even $10. It’s dumb.

I’m not sure how scarce the books with the Wolverine images above will be, but I do appreciate the eras of his history the artist chose to cover (Team X, Weapon X, Department H, Grant Morrison’s New X-Men, Madripoor, and Giant-Size X-Men). I’m a big fan of Marko Djurdjevic‘s work, and I’d be very interested in getting the one on the far right. It features a great team of classic X-Men and the inclusion of Havok puts it over the top.
