A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 135
Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!
Today we conclude a mini theme week (“mini” as in it will take less than a week) that I meant to do the other week when his film came out – cool comic book moments involving Wolverine stabbing people!
It’s funny – the other day I had a moment that was here mostly for the art. Then yesterday, I had a moment that was here mostly for the writing. Well, once again, here’s a moment mostly here for the art.
Wolverine doesn’t seem to have a lot of good stabbing moments that combine good story with good art.
In any event, Wolverine #90 was a special issue designed entirely to spotlight the striking artwork of Adam Kubert.
The book had multiple fold-out pages to allow Kubert to draw gigantic pages with lots of panels (and large panels, too).
The result is quite remarkable looking, even if the plot by Larry Hama is not exactly all that great (Wolverine comes home to the X-Mansion where Sabretooth is being held captive, however, he figures out that Sabretooth has been slowly adjusting his body to the force field that keeps him prisoner – and Wolverine is ready to take him down when he finally gets free)…

And this all leads to “the” moment, when Wolverine, who has done the whole “threaten to pop the third claw” bit a number of times in the past actually DOES pop the third claw!
Great art by Kubert.
