Marvel-ous Fun Strip Friday


In honor of Wolverine's 35th anniversary, Marvel is announcing that April will be "Wolverine Art Appreciation Month."

Check out the preview curtesy of the Washington Post...

Sneak Peek: Marvel's New "Wolverine" Images
Wolverine as a freakishly six-headed Warholian portrait? What would Joe Quesada think, let alone Hugh Jackman?


Actually, we learn that Quesada -- the big cheese at Marvel Comics -- has blessed such an illustration, as well as numerous other cartoons of Wolverine as "inspired" by some of the world's greatest (and in one case, not-so-great) artists.

In honor of Wolverine's 35th anniversary, Marvel is announcing that April will be "Wolverine Art Appreciation Month." As part of the celebration, Marvel says it's giving Comic Riffs exclusive "first look" at the character images, and so we pass along this sneak-peek to you.

Various Marvel titles will debut the new art, which includes images "invoking" Picasso, Dali and Van Gogh, among other all-timers. Says Quesada in a statement: Wolverine is "not just popular with fans but also with artists. ... This got us thinking: What if Wolverine had been around for hundreds, if not thousands, of years? What great, classic artists would want a crack at drawing a Wolverine cover?"

And of course, the film "X-Men Origins: Wolverine," starring Jackman, is due out soon, so the timing is especially tidy.


And for all you investors out there....
