Mock Ad for new Wolverine storyline

Pencils on 8.5 x 11" printer paper. Colouring and enchancement done in Photoshop.

This sketch sprung out of one of my ideas for a project to try. Imagine if you were asked by Marvel or DC Comics to work on one of their titles. And imagine if they gave you full control to assign the creative teams to work with you on the title, you could pick any writer, artist, colourist, etc. Basically the same type of arrangement that Heroes Reborn or the Marvel Knights banner of titles operates under. What would you do? Dave is a big fan of Wolverine, and he was mentioning it to me, when I started to wonder about what he would do if he was writing the title? If I was drawing it, hmmm, I'm honestly not sure how I'd handle it. I like Wolvie, but he's not one of my favourites. Visually, I'd try to go back to his darker, more feral nature. Less of the super-hero tights, I'd try to draw him shirtless as much as possible. Wild and out there.... but don't worry, Wolvie fans, no need to panic and cancel your subscriptions, this is just a "what if", some wishful thinking put to pencil + paper...
