I think it's his thigh that finally "sold" it to me. I dunno.
What I like about this Olivier Coipel cover is that it combines the "two Wolverines" that usually show up in depictions of the character -- the handsome one and the sort of trollish one. He's certainly not a pretty boy in this piece of art. He's not Hugh Jackman-handsome. But he's also sort of hot in his own way.
I know -- pretty deep commentary! :-D
Cover is a Wolverine: Weapon X #1 variant, btw
