I was wondering why Wolverine has tattoos on his arm. And all the cameras seem to be literally copies and pastes of the same one. Also, Wolverine has Youngblood's disease (tiny squinty eyes with no pupils)

See that signature? Looks like "Land". If that's Greg Land then this is all that really needs to be said. But I'm willing to admit I may be mistaken.

yeah I don't know about the tattoos. I don't read any x-titles so I have no clue. I judged this one solely on the cover.

Yeah it is Greg Land. I have seen that thread and I think this was the first time I had really seen any of his covers.

HOWEVER. After doing a search on Dark Wolverine, it appears that the character does indeed have his claws coming out of his wrists, and so the tattoos are probably supposed to be there as well.

...but, still. Greg Land.

I own this comic book.  I bought it because of the cover:

Mine's in better condition than that one though.

Just an FYI, the man on the cover is actually Wolverine's son, Daken.  He has the middle claw and tattoos on his arm.  He's currently posing as Wolverine in the Dark Avengers.  But don't take my word it...

Ok we can let Land off with the middle claw. But the rest still stands!

I don't care if its canon... That wrist claw thing looks really stupid.

Yeah, well... I'm with you on that. 'Course, I'm also of the opinion that the character Daken himself is kind of a lame idea.

Also, what the hell is up with that one photographer's hand?



It looks like he's got some kind of flipper for a forearm and the lens is protruding straight through it.

Ha ha! I didn't really notice that.

Look at the camera man behind Daken's  left claw. He has a camera for a face.

I think Cameraface Man should get his own Dismarvel movie!
