Marvel CCO Joe Quesada just unleashed some new, uncolored artwork from his “Logan” “X-Men” comic on Tumblr. Quesada provided pencils for the comic, which told a fictional story about the X-Men’s adventures within the world of the film. In his post, Quesada praised the film as well as Dan Panosian, who inked, colored and polished the artwork into the final product that appears in “Logan.”
“I finally got to see ‘Logan’ this weekend and it’s truly an amazing film with perhaps some of the finest overall cast performances ever in a Super Hero movie,” Quesada wrote. “Hugh Jackman couldn’t have said goodbye to the Wolverine in a more powerful and poignant manner and James Mangold simply knocked it clean out of the park. I’m so honored and flattered to have been asked to be a small part of this movie and thrilled for everyone involved that it’s being received so well.”
“For those that asked, here are the digital pencils I contributed to the movie. These were taken by the magnificently talented, though slightly annoying, Dan Panosian who inked, colored and effected them to look like a classic X-Men comic from the 90’s,” he added.
In January, Quesada shared some original linework for the comic page created for “Logan.” The process shots reveal how Quesada and Panosian worked together to create ’90s style X-Men comic starring the fictional versions of the heroes within the movie universe.
“Logan” finds Wolverine in a world where no mutants have been born in twenty years. As such, he’s startled to discover Laura, a young mutant with powers very much like his own. Shortly thereafter, he’s forced to take a road trip with both Laura and ailing Professor X.
As it turns out, Quesada and Panosian’s in-film “X-Men” comic was much more than a fun Easter egg. (We’re about to delve into some spoilers for “Logan” here, so look away if you haven’t yet seen the film!) In the movie, the “X-Men” comic — which Wolverine finds in Laura’s possession — actually provides their destination. The comic sends the X-Men on their way to Eden, a fabled mutant haven in North Dakota. In the comic, Professor X leads the way with a specific set of coordinates, which Laura’s handler Gabriela and Laura herself then use to plot their destination. Naturally, this enrages the real Wolverine, who knows the comic is a work of fiction. Nevertheless, he takes Laura there to prove a point.
Now in theaters, “Logan” is directed by James Mangold and stars Hugh Jackman as Logan, Patrick Stewart as Charles, Dafne Keen as Laura, Boyd Holbrook as Pierce and Stephen Merchant as Caliban.
