Wolverine: Inside the World of the Living Weapon...

Recently I discovered that my aformentioned book Wolverine: The Ultimate Guide has been retitled as part of DK Publishing's new approach to their Ultimate line of books. So on March 16th, be sure to ask your comic book store or good old fashioned regular bookstore to save you a copy of Wolverine: Inside the World of the Living Weapon. It features a really in-depth look into the history and powers of the world's most famous mutant, and plenty of art from your favorite Wolverine comics.

But don't take my word for it. Or LeVar Burton's, for that matter. ICv2 has a few sample pages up on their site that you can check out here.

And here's what DK is saying about it on their own page:

One of Marvel Comics’ favorite characters, Wolverine is a mutant who possesses animal-like instincts, super-enhanced strength, and the ability to heal from any wound. While he was part of the Weapon X program his skeletal structure was bonded with the near-destructible alloy adamantium, and now very little can stop him.

DK’s publishing program celebrates Wolverine’s classic comic book roots, with gorgeous imagery, classic story lines, and a nod to the franchise that Wolverine has become.

Super-fans can learn about Wolverine’s comic book debut (a cameo in a Hulk comic in 1974), and the development of his character, his story, the X-Men, and more in our comprehensive and spectacularly illustrated Ultimate Guide.
