Classic Wolverine Cover: Uncanny X-Men #212

Every week, Wolverine Files highlights, in chronological order, another iconic Wolverine cover. Want to start at the beginning? Click here…

Barry Windsor-Smith returned to X-Men cover duty in December 1986 with Uncanny X-Men #212 and wrapped up an amazing year of Wolverine covers.

As with his previous cover, one can only look on in astonishment as it slowly comes to life…

After the jump is some of the tremendous interior art by Rick Leonardi and a surprise that I hadn’t seen in 20 years…

Rick Leonardi filled in as guest artist with Dan Green and provided some eye-popping interior art to go with some sharp Chris Claremont dialogue…

Rick Leonardi also produced a Wolverine poster around this time that proudly graced my wall for many years before finally disintegrating.

I love this artwork, especially BWS’s cover, and the poster by Leonardi is wonderful.

Great, great cover! I’d forgotten just how good it looks! As for that poster by Rick Leonardi…WOW! I’ve never seen it before but I wish I had one!


I know I still have that poster buried somewhere. One of the few remaining comic posters from the purge of 2002.

Corners filled with tack holes. But still worth framing!


I had that poster, and I recently did have a cleaner version of the image…but now i can’t find it… :( man I wish I had that poster again.


Wonder if it’s possible to email Marvel and ask them to include this poster in a future TPB or One Shot.

I recently acquired this print. It has a couple pin holes in corners. But it is a crispy poster other than corners. How much is this thing worth.
