So yes, today’s page is a bit spoilery, but if you’ve been reading the Death of Wolverine series, you know how we get ourselves into this position.
I’d like to say that I thought this was a creative and interesting way to “kill” Wolverine, but all I could think was “ok… he’s not dead. He’s a hat rack.” Which is a bummer because I really like the creative team on this book. Charles Soule is a great writer (his Letter 44 book from Oni is amazing!) and Steven McNiven has always been a favourite artist of mine.
Instead, I choose to believe that there was editorial interference. Or Deadline issues. Or a natural disaster. Something to explain away this book.
The good news is that given all the teasers that have Marvel revisiting “events” next year, they’ll be able to re-do this one sooner than later.
Today’s Inks and colors come to us from Richard Clark:
Born in a crossfire hurricane (actually Cleveland, OH), Richard P. Clark’s illustration career began in 1993 while still an undergraduate at The Columbus College of Art and Design. Since then, he’s worked for a wildly varied list of clients in several industries-among them HBO, Playboy, The Wall Street Journal and Alcoholics Anonymous. He’s been finding work again in the Comic Industry, including a recent job for Dark Horse providing finishes over Darick Robertson’s breakdowns for The Guild-Vork comic. He’s hoping this recent turn into the comic lane sticks as there are literally scores of stories he’d like to unleash on the world. Mr. Clark currently resides in Upstate NY after a 10-year tour of duty in Brooklyn with his wife, daughter and a goofy dog named Barnaby.
Enjoy the weekend, folks!
