    Barry Windsor-Smith Marvel Comics Presents #78 Unused "Blood" Variant Cover Wolverine/Weapon X Original Art (Marvel, 1991). Barry Windsor-Smith's artwork is highly praised by fans, and highly-sought by art collectors. His covers are sought out even more eagerly! According to information from BWS himself, he produced three versions of this cover. And although this version was not the published one, it was in fact his favorite of the three. He referred to this one as "the liveliest" of them. With its darker and more spontaneous brush work, it is at once both a fierce and sympathetic image of Logan and the torment he endured. Rendered in ink over blue pencil on Marvel Bristol board with an image area of 10.75" x 11.25". There is light smudging, and whiteout art corrections. Signed "BWS" and dated 1991 in the lower right. The piece is noted as being an "ink study" on the reverse of the board. In Excellent condition.
