Weekend Poll

Nonsensical Weekend Poll

We haven’t had one of these in a while, so we decided to throw one up. Y’know. For Wolverine and all.

A few weeks ago, we stumbled across these covers over at Marvel.com. In celebration of Wolverine’s 35th anniversary, Marvel released a number of variant covers this month with depictions of Wolverine in the style of famous artists.

With that in mind, for this week’s ponderings we ask you:

    Hummmm, I love the first one: it is the most beautiful.

    As for the “cool” factor I would have to with the Dali. :mrgreen:

    Tough call, I’m torn between the cave paiting (looks lovely and reminds of classic comic styles), Dali and Magritte.

    Hmm, I don’t really get Magritte, I second the vote for Dali.
    It is an intriguing re-imagining of his pictures.

    Wow that’s a tough one! They’re all really pretty good. I like the first one, the one in the Salvador Dali fashion, The Daredevil and the one with the umbrella. Other than that I can’t choose one. 🙂 Fun poll

    Hmm, the Dali definitely stands out to me too, but I also like the Munch and the Van Gogh inspired covers. Basically, I love them all :mrgreen:

    There ain’t nothing nonsensical about this poll, but man it’s difficult to choose!

    *looking again*

    *changing mind again*

    gah! I think it’s the Secret Warriors one, closely followed by the Hulk one.

    And I’ll stop now 😀

    Salvador Dali one, but that could be personnel preferense.

    Magritte close second.

    I love the Gorey one. So cute!

    But as far as talent and wow factor, I’d go with the Dali.

    How cool!

    The cave painting is by far my fave.

    I like Edvard Munch the best, followed by the cave drawing (so cute)!

    How fun! My faves are the Magritte and Gorey versions, in that order!

    gah! I think it’s the Secret Warriors one, closely followed by the Hulk one.

    Darn it, I didn’t realise that this is another one of Marvel’s infamous “Wolvie covers for the comics he doesn’t appear in” stunt so I wondered for a moment what that might mean. 😳

    I like the Munch and Magritte, but I really think the Japanese woodblock print-style one really pegged the style, spot-on, without directly copying a painting. Casting my vote for that one.

    Hmm… I’m torn between the Gory and the Magritte for favorite, but I agree with Kate. The Japanese woodblock painting is style perfect.
