Wolverine, framed

March 17, 2009 | 9:48 p.m.

It’s the 35th anniversary of Wolverine (oh why, oh why did I trade away my "Incredible Hulk" No. 181 nack in the 1980s?) and the folks at Marvel have some fun stuff coming up to celebrate; there will be variant covers in the months to come that riff on famous paintings and artists, among them Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol and Pablo Picasso. Below is an early look at one of those covers, Paolo Rivera’s fun ode to the dog poker paintings of Cassius Coolidge.

You can read more about the covers at the Marvel website page about the news. Hey, is it just me, or is Wolverine getting taller in all of the comics? He used to be a ferocious fireplug, and now he looks like a lanky biker-dude. He also doesn’t seem as hairy as he was in the mid-1980s. Blame Hollywood …

Speaking of Hollywood …

Let’s check out the most recent trailer for the film, which arrives in theaters on May 1…

Looks good!

    Is Wolverine getting taller? My first question tends to be: Over the years, has he gotten ever-expanding breast implants or been on mega-doses of steroids (which would explain a lot)? :)

  2. Hey – good blog, simply looking around some blogs, seems a pretty good platform you are using. I’m at present using WordPress for a few of my websites but trying to change one of them over to a platform much like yours as a trial run. Anything specifically you’ll advocate about it?
