1986 was a very good year for Wolverine covers.

We begin with the unforgettable Captain America Annual #8, where we finally witnessed Wolverine’s unbreakable claws go up against Captain America’s indestructible shield.

And the fiery visuals by Mike Zeck did not disappoint…

I still get a grin looking at that cover!

Next up are two classic Alpha Flight covers from the same year costarring Wolverine…

Mike Mignola provided two terrific covers for Alpha Flight #33 and #34. Unfortunately, Wolverine doesn’t quite own the covers enough for me to classify them as classic Wolverine covers, but I share them because they are still pretty awesome…

That ‘Captain America’ cover is terrrific! This is the issue that is included in “The Best of Wolverine, Vol. 1.” Despite the action-packed cover, I am especially drawn to the little note in the lower left-hand corner — “Give the Gift of Literacy.” Very cool!

Those Alpha Flight issues were still uber important though. It was the first time Wolverine’s origin was told if I remember correctly. The first time Wolverine admitted that he was experimented on and he didn’t remember his past.
