Marvel Comics and Wizard World, Inc. have teamed up for another 2014 exclusive variant cover, this of Wolverine #1, drawn by prolific cover artist Greg Horn. VIP attendees at the inaugural Wizard World Sacramento Comic Con, this coming weekend March 7-9 at the Sacramento Convention Center, will receive a free copy of the limited-edition book at registration. The exclusive will be limited to 3,000 copies.
Horn is scheduled to be on site at the event to sign copies (autograph fees may apply). Leading professional comic grader CGC will also be on hand to accept books for grading and Signature Series.
Horn’s Wolverine #1 follows the first two entries, Miracleman #1 and Miracleman #2, both drawn by Eisner Award Hall of Famer Neal Adams for Wizard World Portland Comic Con and New Orleans Comic Con, respectively.
Horn is best known for his artwork on Marvel titles Elektra, Emma Frost, and She-Hulk. He was also the regular cover artist on the acclaimed series Ms. Marvel by Brian Reed. His work in comic books has opened up opportunities on high profile projects in advertising, video games, magazine covers, editorial, boardgames, and novels.
