Rising star and current Thor artist Marko Djurdjevic has created a painted variant cover for the upcoming Uncanny X-Men #497. This amazing cover will be available to fans as an exclusive variant at the Emerald City ComiCon, the premier comic book and pop culture convention in the Pacific Northwest.
“Marko created a very classic-looking cover for the show and I couldn’t be happier with it,” said Organizer Jim Demonakos. “As an added bonus, fans picking the book up will be able to have their copies signed by the creative team of Ed Brubaker and Mike Choi since both are guests this year.”
Here’s how Marvel describes the issue: As Cyclops and Emma Frost try to save Angel — and the entire city of San Francisco — from something unexplainable, Wolverine, Colossus and Nightcrawler must face Russia’s deadly Red Room! From Eisner-winning scribe Ed Brubaker (Captain America, Daredevil, Criminal) and artist Michael Choi, this X-Men: Divided We Stand tie-in continues the acclaimed story of a world without X-Men, with the former superheroes attempting to move on after the events of Messiah CompleX.
The limited edition Marko Djurdjevic Uncanny X-Men #497 variant cover will be available to fans at the Sixth Annual Emerald City ComiCon, taking place at the Washington State Convention & Trade Center in beautiful downtown Seattle, Washington on May 10th & 11th, 2008.
