Marvel is proud to announce that in honor of Wolverine‘s 35th anniversary, numerous Marvel titles will feature Wolverine Art Appreciation Variant Covers in April, as part of Wolverine Art Appreciation Month. In the tradition of Marvel’s previous variant cover programs, featuring everything from villains to zombies to monkeys, select Marvel titles will feature variant covers spotlighting the most popular X-Man through a unique lens! Inspired by some of the world’s greatest artists, these variant covers depict Wolverine like you’ve never seen him before, in styles reminiscent of Pablo Picasso, Salvador Dali, Andy Warhol and more!

“This is a huge year for Wolverine as he proves why he’s arguably one of the most popular characters in the world,” explained Joe Quesada, Marvel Comics Editor-in-Chief. “He’s not just popular with fans but also with artists, as evidenced by how many of today’s top comic artists jockey for a chance to draw him. This got us thinking: what if Wolverine had been around for hundreds, if not thousands, of years? What great, classic artists would want a crack at drawing a Wolverine cover?”

Keep checking back with for a complete listing of titles featuring the Wolverine Art Appreciation Variant Covers and a first look at these landmark covers!

    The link won’t work. IT WON’T WORK I SAY!Did you see the preview for the new Wolverine movie? (I’m assuming yes. Yes, right?) Here are my unsolicited thoughts: sign me up! It has Hugh “The Dingo Ate My Baby” Jackman, Ryan “I Wish He Was Always Shirtless” Reynolds, Liev “Guy Should Always Have Some Sort Of Accent Because It Makes Him Sound Awesome, Like In That One Movie ‘Defiance'” Schriber and FINALLY some Gambit action?! Heck. Yes.
