Wolverine Preview Pages... and all the Covers

I thought this was worthy of a blog post in its own right.  You can read the fully-lettered and coloured first three pages of Wolverine #1, out next Wednesday, here.  I think they demonstrate how awesome the Alan Davis art is.  And that we start right in the middle of the action.  And that we're aiming for this comic to be attractive for people who've never read a Wolverine comic, never read a super hero comic.  We'll tell you all you need to know.

I'll be doing a writer's commentary blog on the release date of the first and every subsequent issue.  And of course next Wednesday from 6pm I'll be signing the first issue at London's Forbidden Planet.  (And if you're not there you can use that link to order signed copies by mail, especially those with the FP variant cover.)

As you may have guessed, I'm rather enthusiastic about this title.  I asked, when Marvel editors Nick Lowe and Axel Alonso approached me at San Diego Comic Con last year about returning to Marvel, to be given a title right at the heart of the Marvel Universe.  And they responded beyond my wildest dreams.  I'm working with a brilliant art team and a brilliant editor, Jeanine Schaefer.  I'm getting to write a full-on action-packed mainstream super hero title that also gives me room to do what I do, and that makes waves in the wider Marvel continuity.  I've just written, in #8, what may be my best single comic.  I couldn't be happier.  I think that energy is obvious from the comic itself.  (Just wait until you see the ending of #2!)

Here, for the collectors among you, are (I think!)  all of the different covers the #1 will go out under...

The common or garden variety, lovely art by Alan Davis.


The sketch variant of the above...



The Olivier Coipel variant...

The Skottie Young L'il Marvel variant...


The Mile High Comics variant by Humberto Ramos...


And the Forbidden Planet variant by Salvador Larroca...


Which has Deadpool on it, though he's not in the issue.  But hey, neither is Cyclops as a toddler.  If you come across any more variants in the wild, do let me know!  Until next time, then, Cheerio!
