By Josh Wilding - 5/11/2013
This June, Savage Wolverine will switch from Frank Cho's Savage Land story arc to a tale from Avenging Spider-Man collaborators Zeb Wells and Joe Madureira. While it's widely believed that it was initially meant for that title, the focus will mostly be on Wolverine and Elekta as we can see from the following image (more than likely the cover for August's issue #8). The artist understandably has a huge fanbase, and it's fair to say that based off this piece of artwork, Savage Wolverine will continue to be one of the best looking comic books on the stands!

So is the idea for this series like a team-up with Wolvie and a female character? I've only read issue #1.
Jarvisjackrabbit - 5/11/2013, 6:24 PM
Wolverine becomes "The Hunchback of the Great White North." Actually, I think it looks pretty good.
FlyingSeel - 5/11/2013, 6:25 PM
@Khan it's not the whole universe it's mostly Wolverine...the only good title with his name is Wolvering and the Xmen.

But this looks pretty bad. Is that supposed to be Elektra? Because she sucks too haha. Wolvering looks like a hunchback in this picture.

Looks like it could be epic. I'm a long time Joe Mad fan, so hopefully this won't be a crapfest like The Ultimates 3.

Hugh Jackman couldn't do this shit to save his life.

This is how he should be,...super bad assery.

looks like joe mad inked by both Jae Lee and Joey Q. I like it. The colors? not so much.
SageMode - 5/11/2013, 7:00 PM
Joe Mad is one of my top 5 artists. I love his manga-esque style. This looks pretty dope.

People actually think this is meh? Smh
SageMode - 5/11/2013, 7:01 PM
He needs to bring BATTLE CHASERS back. That series was awesome.
sinsear912 - 5/11/2013, 7:26 PM
Haters gonna hate.
HeadPool420 - 5/11/2013, 7:32 PM
Looks great but it reminds me of some 90's Quesada art with the shadowing. But then if you think about it Joe Q was kind of copying Frank Millers style of shading.

Someone should tell Wolverine that if his hand is bigger than his face he has cancer!
THORION76 - 5/11/2013, 7:55 PM
Intruder - You have no idea what your talking about. Joe Mad has one of the most EPIC styles in comic history. All comic artist exaggerate the anatomy on the men and women. The arms and claws are badass.
GetsugaTensho22 - 5/11/2013, 7:57 PM
I don't understand the love here. That looks good, but epic? No way! Not worth of being in anybody's top 5 for any reason.

Mauro Cascioli however, is AMAZING.
GetsugaTensho22 - 5/11/2013, 7:58 PM
and why won't the images freaking show up? i used the correct HTML code and everything!!!
Anyway, this is a link to the picture. If anybody's code isn't wonky, then you can post it for me here

This looks SICK! That's one badass Wolverine.
Durango95 - 5/11/2013, 8:36 PM
Joe Mad was a great artist for Uncanny X-Men. Only three have been good for that series--John Byrne,John Romita Jr (w/P Craig Russell and Dan Green on ink in the 80s) and Chris Bachalo. Jim Lee was good too but he fell off after issue 277.

CBMfan001 - 5/11/2013, 9:35 PM
awesome :D love Joe Madureira for me only two artists can draw which will make me disregard the story of a comic that is Joe Madureira & Jim Lee,give me a comic with any story any day still i would love it because their art is pure awesome :D
DanteSparda - 5/11/2013, 9:47 PM
So sexy it hurts my eyes.
RPD - 5/11/2013, 11:04 PM
Sweet! Glad I subscribed to this book...
MementoMori - 5/11/2013, 11:36 PM
The hairy arms make it. Always does in a Wolverine drawing.
ScionStorm - 5/12/2013, 12:30 AM
Doesn't Elektra know that's obviously just a shaven pigmy gorilla cosplaying as wolverine?

I am liking Cho's current Savage Wolverine arc. I think it's the best title with his name on it right now. Don't know about this new story though. Once Cho is done with his story I might go looking for something else to read.
doctormetallifan - 5/12/2013, 3:20 AM
Although it's highly stylised (bit manga-ry innit!) I think that's a great Wolverine image. Seeing as one of the main important character traits in him is meant to be an internal war between man and animal, he's clearly feeling a bit beasty having murdered a feckload of ninja...

And @Intruder, the Trapezoid is a small bone at the base of your thumb (Guess who's got an exam coming up..!).
marvel72 - 5/12/2013, 5:31 AM
one of the best artist ever!

Mauro Cascioli is a great artist, he's like Alex Ross, only consistently working (lol).
We'll see a sequel to Battle Chasers......when they make it a videogame
J0RELLC00LJ - 5/12/2013, 5:41 AM
2Challa - Thant 1st pic you posted of Wolverine is badass!
loki668 - 5/12/2013, 5:48 AM
Wolvie looks like he's pouting because they have him in the brown and yellow suit again.
marvel72 - 5/12/2013, 6:48 AM
i forgot to add leinel yu & esad ribic.
jimoakley666 - 5/12/2013, 8:44 AM
Never been all that mad on Mad. The dude is WELL bloody talented and more than knows what the [frick] he's doing. Just not really my kinda preferred style.

But I will say here's hoping Logan is hedging back towards (an updated version of) his brown uniform. I recoloured version of his X-Force kit, without the red eyes would be ace.
silverhawk - 5/12/2013, 10:08 AM
Like SageMode said, Battle Chasers Battle Chasers Battle Chasers!!! Always liked his artwork.
thebearjew - 5/12/2013, 10:41 AM
thats one badass piece he did

Gorgeous
breakUbatman - 5/12/2013, 1:18 PM
Yeah the colours don't compliment the art, need someone like Marte Gracia.
