Logan will bask in Marvel’s love and respect in April when Wolverine celebrates his 35th anniversary with classic paintings re-imagined by top comic artists of today. This is a great idea I reckon. Press release below.
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?”

Not that I’m an on-line gamer, but I can certainly see the appeal, and I’ve seen the ads for the Eve MMORPG around the place, so that’s a good enough excuse for a press release for Eve fans, below. You can also get a free trial of the game here.
Dragonfire Laser Craft announced today that they are licensees for the worldwide phenomena MMORPG Eve Online. The first round of products, available for immediate shipping, includes dog tags representing each of the four playable races, flasks and heated coffee mugs. Other products that are ready to go include dog tags with customized logos for corporations. In March, rank insignia pins for the factional warfare will be available.
EVE Online is the critically acclaimed massively multiplayer online game (MMOG) from CCP, headquartered in Reykjavik, Iceland with additional offices in Atlanta and Shanghai. The thriving community of over a quarter of a million subscribers explores and conquers the expanses of space as starship pilots. Forming corporations and alliances is vital to survival in the vibrant, politically-charged landscape of New Eden. These groups enjoy having merchandise that lets them show their pride as fans and players.
“We are amazed at the response,” commented Dragonfire Laser Craft CEO Lucas Amodio. “Sales were brisk at the EVE Fanfest in Iceland last November and they received the products with open arms. We are excited to be able to offer them affordable, high-quality goods that reflect the passion they feel about their favorite game.”
