If you’re quiet, you may be able to hear the sound of claws extending. Over the course of his never-ending life, Logan has been many things: son, soldier, lover, husband, father, friend, teacher, teammate, killer, victim of manipulation and scientific experimentation, and hero known as Wolverine. Born James Howlett, Logan’s bone claws, superhuman senses, and remarkable healing factor manifested when he killed his family’s groundskeeper, who had killed Logan’s apparent father but who in fact was his biological father. This event set in motion an extraordinary journey for an extraordinary man. Logan participated in some of history’s most significant events while battling enemies both within and without his own mind and coming to terms with his animalistic nature. Fighting his baser instincts and berserker rages, Logan’s moral compass always leads him to do right in the end. Combining the yellow and blue of Wolverine’s uniform with the deep black of Wolverine’s complicated persona, the Logan also draws heavily on a motif of threes inspired by the three claws on each of his hands. Like the eponymous hero, the Logan is as elegant as it is edgy. Orli says, “I can’t imagine what it must have been like for Logan to see and do all of the things that he’s seen and done. Even in his darkest hours, he always strives to do right by those he has committed himself to protecting, and that requires exceptional strength of character.”

As a bona fide comic book enthusiast, Orli celebrates the Marvel Comics multiverse, including the art and times of Stan Lee and his colleagues Jack Kirby, Len Wein, and Chris Claremont. Drawing inspiration from the flawed and conflicted heroes emerging and reemerging during the Silver and Bronze Ages, this collection capitalizes on the decisive colors, bold lines, and action-packed symbolic resonance of the genre.
