Entry 65: Wolverine 100 Project


Down at the Periscope Studio Steve Lieber and Jeff Parker got some of these Wolverine: Weapon-X #1 sketch covers from the Hero Initiative. If you don’t know what the Hero Initiative is, it’s a not-for-profit corporation dedicated to helping "yesterdays" comic book creators in need of emergency medical aid, financial support for essentials, and to provide an avenue back into paying work.

Apparently, there are 100 of these blank sketch covers out there with a hundred different artists sketching em up to be auctioned off to benefit the Hero Initiative. Steve and Jeff got 4 of them. That meant there were 2 up for grabs for anyone in the studio to sketch on. Colleen Coover got one and I got the other.  I figure someday I’ll be yesterdays comic book creator. So it’s probably worth supporting these guys. Plus, I will jump at any opportunity to draw Wolverine.

Wolverine was the first comic series that I ever collected. It was the comic that made me a comic book fan. But my favorite Wolverine story was Barry Windsor Smith’s Weapon-X.

You can check out my fellow Periscoper’s pieces at there respective sights Here: Steve and Colleen. And you can see Jeff’s preliminary sketches Here: Jeff. And you can see some other artists’ pieces here.

Here’s my piece.

    Awesome picture! Barry Windsor-Smith’s Weapon X is certainly one of my all time favourite comics (the storytelling is just amazing), and the first graphic novel I ever bought. It’s great to see your talk on such an iconic tale, especially since it’s for a good cause.
