Contest announcement from Project: Rooftop:

Wolverine may be the best there is at what he does, but he ain’t no fashion designer, bub! That’s where we come in. Project: Rooftop and online comics retailer have partnered together to present “Wolverine: Look Sharp,” your chance to take Weapon X in for some upgrades!

With Wolvie’s origin flick hitting theaters later this week, Old Man Logan is on the minds of comics-loving fans and the general public. Created nearly 30 years ago by Len Wein and John Romita Sr., Wolverine has put together a well-stocked superhero wardrobe since. He’s rocked his classic blue and yellow tights, his brown and orange variant, the Weapon X mission gear, the one-handed Age of Apocalypse attire, his Ultimate Universe duds, the New X-Men black and yellows, his new X-Force mission suit, the movie costumes, and of course, the naked VR training look, which not everyone can pull off.

Now it’s your turn. Can the Canucklehead turn heads? Let’s find out! Discount Comic Book Service (DCBS) has provided the following (astonishing) prizes:

Grand Prize - Wolverine Omnibus, Wolverine: Weapon X #1 Coipel Variant signed by Jason Aaron and Ron Garney, and Wolverine: Enemy of the State HC Vol 1 and 2

Great Quotes: Kris Kristofferson


"You know what Waylon Jennings said about guys like him?" he whispered.

I shook my head.

"They're doin' to country music what pantyhose did to finger-fuckin'."

God, I love Kris Kristofferson. And Waylon too, for that matter.
