    Description

    John Byrne Wolverine #1 Back Cover Original Art (1988). Wolverine is perhaps the most popular comic character to debut in the last 40 years, so it seems amazing that he didn't get a regular solo title until 1988. But the series ended up running 317 issues, all the way through 2012, despite a couple of name changes along the way. It was fitting that the back cover to the first issue was drawn by Byrne, whose tenure as X-Men artist and co-plotter was what elevated the character to his current popularity. Look at the printed version of this art on the published comic (a copy of which is included with this lot) and you'll see the full power of this image. This piece has an image area of 10" x 14.75", and the art is in Excellent condition.
