Some stories are perpetually in print because the demand for them never ceases. But it’s still noteworthy when such a storyline gets a fresh, new oversize edition.
Case in point: Barry Windsor-Smith’s 1991 classic Wolverine: Weapon X is getting a Gallery Edition from Marvel next spring.
The 200-page hardcover, which is a tad smaller than the 10″ x 14″ treasury editions of the ’70s, is due in comics shops March 30, 2022.
Dig the details:
WOLVERINE: WEAPON X GALLERY EDITION HC
Written by BARRY WINDSOR-SMITH with CHRIS CLAREMONT & FRANK TIERI
Penciled by BARRY WINDSOR-SMITH
Cover by BARRY WINDSOR-SMITH
WOLVERINE: WEAPON X is the character-defining origin of the man known only as Logan. Written, illustrated and colored by auteur creator and master storyteller Barry Windsor-Smith, it is undeniably one of the greatest Wolverine stories ever told. After being taken hostage by an experimental Canadian military science outfit, Logan is transformed into Weapon X, an unstoppable killing machine with an indestructible Adamantium skeleton and razor-sharp claws. But Weapon X cannot be contained by his captors — and trapped in their lab with the monster they have made, they will face his feral wrath! It’s a psychedelic horror story in the mold of Frankenstein, newly restored from original art and print sources for this stunning oversized edition! Collecting material from MARVEL COMICS PRESENTS (1988) #72-84 and WOLVERINE (1988) #166, plus UNCANNY X-MEN (1981) #205.
200 PGS./Rated T…$44.99
