X-MEN #205 Unpublished Cover, 1985

This forceful, rare full-figure drawing by BWS of WOLVERINE holding his claws aloft in a snowy cityscape was the initial cover idea for "Wounded Wolf" his classic story in X-MEN #205. Epitomized by BWS' vigorous inking style of the mid 1980's. It must be noted that no cover by BWS was ever rejected in his years at Marvel. Any "unpublished" cover work came about by his own aesthetic choices, not the demands of Marvel editors. BWS' reason for not using this particular cover was simply that it reminded him too much of his well-known cover for DAREDEVIL #217, and he, as he says all the time, hates repeating himself.
Signed BWS. Pencil, pen and ink on bristol. 9 1/2 x 14 3/4".
