TRDL 2018 Series No. 36 - Wolverine and Silver Samurai

This is a homage to not only my favorite X-Men comic, but my favorite one as well. Uncanny X-Men #173 was the first X-Men book I picked up, and I was enamored with everything about it: the tense script by Chris Claremont, the amazing, mature art of Paul Smith, the Japanese setting, the isolation from the other X-Men, the pairing of Logan with his former enemy… so, this piece tries to capture that claustrophobic vibe of Wolverine facing off with Samurai in the tunnels, though in the original book it was a stark corridor environment. Anyway, this also features one of my favorite Wolverine outfits, which obviously dates me.
