Official Press Release
The hits just keep a’comin’ concerning Marvel Comics’ newest ongoing series WOLVERINE: ORIGINS as the industry leader announces that superstar artist Michael Turner will be delivering an extra-special variant cover for the inaugural issue. This stunning cover will be Turner’s first published work for Marvel since the company announced his coming in the summer.
WOLVERINE: ORIGINS joins the present WOLVERINE title on the stands and further illuminates the dark recesses of mutant super-hero Logan’s shady and exciting history. The new series will be written by Daniel Way and drawn by Steve Dillon, the creative team behind BULLSEYE: GREATEST HITS, PUNISHER VS BULLSEYE, and SUPREME POWER: NIGHTHAWK. Issue #1 will jump off from the cliffhanging ending of March’s WOLVERINE #40, also written by Way.
“This cover was a blast to draw!” enthuses artist Michael Turner on his variant to the standard edition cover to WOLVERINE: ORIGINS #1, drawn by Marvel Editor-in-Chief Joe Quesada (who’ll be handling ongoing cover chores for the series). “I studied the classic character and drew several layouts only to go back to the very first layout sketched,” explains Turner. “I had also just seen ?King Kong’ so the primal rage I tried to express with this piece was still on my mind. That’s all the credit I’m taking because Peter’s Steigerwald colors knocked this one over the fence! His visceral textures and color choices blew me away!!!”
Turner is unabashedly excited about this particular gig. “I am really looking forward to drawing Wolvie again sometime soon…”
Fans will find both the Turner cover and the Quesada cover to WOLVERINE: ORIGINS #1 at their local comic shop in April. Retailers note: this will be a 50/50 variant cover split. Stay tuned for more WOLVERINE: ORIGINS news-as well as some exciting Michael Turner news!
