Western-Themed Wolverine

I've got a couple more covers in progress for WitchCup, the continuing trials of poor Daniel Long, but meanwhile here's a sneak preview of the artwork for an upcoming issue of Wolverine, showing our eponymous hero in a playful (yet strong!) pose--





Oh, wait, sorry - that's a redo of this IGN-top-50 cover for She-hulk #5 - or rather the incomplete version, because the full version has her new partner and his horse leering at her from above, and the character herself drawn as close to Twiggy as you can get and still have her recognizeable. Which is still marginally better than the body-paint one imo. And yet, we are told, there's nothing exploitative in this series nowadays...

And when do you want to bet that we'll see a superhero posed coyly in skimpy clothing on the cover of his book? Anyone?

(Things ganged agley pretty much all of the past 28 hours, in various ways, so I haven't been online much, sorry.)/
