Here's a press release from Marvel along with some nice art. But that's not the only reason I'm posting it. Something occurred to me as I was looking at the art, that I can't figure out. Maybe it's been explained. But here's my question (actually two): One way you can tell Daken from Logan in the Wolverine suit is the elaborate tattoos on Daken's left arm. So riddle me this: How do you tattoo a guy with a healing factor? And wouldn't his hair grow back from that mohawk cut, like, every five minutes?
Daken Gets His Revenge in Dark Wolverine #80!
Ok, so being a hero isn’t as easy as it looks, but mercilessly slaughtering people is something that will come all too naturally to Daken, son of Wolverine, in Dark Wolverine #80! Red-hot scribes Daniel Way and Marjorie Liu join rising star artist Stephen Segovia to deliver the last thrilling issue of this chapter in Wolverine’s son’s life! Norman Osborn’s publicity stunt fails miserably and Daken is more than happy to clean up the mess – by creating an even bloodier one! How does Daken pay back the upstart villains that beat him to within an inch of his life? He’s gonna teach ‘em that their egos just wrote cheques their bodies can’t cash! Be sure to catch the stunning variant cover by Young Guns artist Stefano Caselli!
