Comic Cover Corner is a segment that looks at a specific cover and what makes it so eye-catching. There’s a lot of iconic covers, but one of my favourites is Wolverine #1, drawn by legendary writer/artist Frank Miller. When Miller teamed up with Chris Claremont to write the 1982 Wolverine series, it went onto be the greatest Wolverine story of all time. But the first thing readers saw was the cover, and it’s become a timeless piece of art.
With the release of Logan just days away, Wolverine Week comes to an end with a look at X-23. The character will be making her screen debut, played by Dafne Keen. Before the movie comes out I feel it’s important for people to understand who she is and what makes her different to Wolverine.
Throughout his life, Wolverine has loved many women and developed many fatherly roles. He’s acted as a father to Kitty Pryde, Jubilee, Amiko and Pixie. Logan will also be the debut of X-23 on the silver screen, who as his clone can also be considered his ‘daughter.’ But I’d rather put the spotlight on another of his children. Daken is Wolverine’s biological son. He was born in Japan in 1946, when Logan settled down with a Japanese woman called Itsu. Daken is everything his father isn’t and I’ll explain why.
I’ve decided to introduce another segment called Beneath The Pages, where I’ll talk about someone from the comic industry I admire. This could be a writer, artist, penciller or editor. They are the people who bring characters to life, who create works of art that stand the test of time. The first person I’m going to focus on is Marjorie Liu, who’s known for her work on comics like Dark Wolverine, X-23 and Black Widow.
