Happy 35th, Wolverine!

Wolverine fans rejoice, now you get to see the man with steel claws featured in other various art forms by Marvel’s band of A-list comic artists throughout April.

In other words, Marvel’s artists will reinterpret Wolverine in styles reminiscent of Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol and other notables, says Larry Fire.

Big year for Wolverine then, judging on the adulation he’s been getting. Joe Quesada, Marvel Comics’ editor-in-chief said, “He’s not just popular with fans but also with artists, as evidenced by how many of today’s top comic artists jockey for a chance to draw him.”

And that got Marvel thinking on how to best exploit showcase their star X-Men character. Quesada said, “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?”

My favourite cover so far? This Salvador Dali-inspired version.

I don't do drugs. I am drugs.

I don't do drugs. I am drugs.
