Deathblow and Wolverine #2 is a personal favorite of mine and one not all that well known.

Back in 1996, Marvel Comics and Image crossed over two of their most popular characters in a story that takes place in the early days of the new X-Men.

I really didn’t like how they drew wolvie’s face in this series, very similar to the Punisher mini Damaging Evidence.

I’m glad to see a lesser known famous cover. I’ve never read this mini series, but now I wish I did ! Thanks for picking a new amazing cover for us Dig. :) It’s always a pleasure to visit your site.
