Some tremendous sketchwork by Simone Bianchi for Warren Ellis’ much anticipated run on ‘Astonishing X-Men.’

To quote Ellis’ thoughts on Wolverine from ‘Wizard’ #201…

“You can always spot the real alpha male in any room because they’re the most relaxed and least arrogant. That’s Logan. He knows he’s ‘the best there is at what he does.’ What becomes interesting is he also knows what he cannot do. He needles Cyclops, laughs at Cyclops, but would never in hell presume to take over from or ignore Cyclops. Also, I needed comic relief. Poor Logan.”

From Marvel: “‘Messiah Complex’ pulled the X-Men team together; ‘Divided We Stand’ tore them apart. This July, the X-Men get back to business – with a new base of operations and a new look! See it here first – with this exclusive preview! See the gorgeous costume redesigns for Wolverine, Cyclops, Emma Frost and more by emerging superstar Simone Bianchi (WOLVERINE: EVOLUTION)! This one-shot gives you a first up-close look at the blue-prints for the new ‘X-Men Mansion,’ courtesy of superstar Salvador Larocca. You won’t believe your eyes!” On sale June 4, 2008.
