Comic Cover Corner puts the spotlight on a remarkable comic cover and the artist responsible for creating it. A cover I came across recently that blew me away is Old Man Logan #31, which was drawn by Mukesh Singh. The cover features an elderly Wolverine reuniting with one of the great loves of his life, Mariko Yashida. Not only is the art stunning, but the cover itself tells an emotional story through body language and colour. As a fan of Wolverine and Japanese culture, I think the cover does a brilliant job of capturing the soul of the character and his connection to the Land of the Rising Sun.
In case it wasn’t obvious by now, I have a fascination with Japan and the history of the samurai. It’s partly why Wolverine is one of my favourite characters and why I always jump at the chance to read any Japan related story he’s involved in. So, when I came across Wolverine: Old Man Logan: The Last Ronin, you can bet I was excited to dive into the story. Written by Jeff Lemire, the graphic novel revolves around Old Man Logan’s adventures in the main Marvel Universe and his battle to stop the version of his future from happening. There’s everything you could want from a Wolverine adventure in Japan: ninjas, action and plenty of emotion.
