Wolverine #4 Cover Art (December 1982)

Wolverine #4 was my first encounter with the Wolverine limited series and I was absolutely captivated from the time I first saw the cover. Even without Frank Miller's trademark lighting from beneath that makes the final printed cover so seductive, the original art is incredibly powerful in its portrayal of Wolverine's strength and mystery.  Looking back to the 1980s, the crossbow was probably a very good call on Frank Miller's part since the weapon had entered the popular consciousness in a big way following the June 1981 release of James Bond's For Your Eyes Only.
