Wolverine and Captain America by Travis Charest




The highlight of the Wildcats was Wildcats/X-Men The Golden Age by Travis Charest (you can find copies at eBay). And now Charest is teasing a new project, also set in World War II, to feature Wolverine and Captain America.

  1. Why is Wolverine so small?!

  2. He's supposed to be short. Some artists (and obviously with the movies) abandon that.

  3. Wouldn't that make the girl the Black Widow...?

  4. Not to get off subject, but "highlight?" What, no love for WildCATs 3.0? I mean, what a grand experiment that book was; a super-hero comic with very little super-heroics, where the Batman/Punisher surrogate of the team (Grifter)gets put in a wheelchair for almost the entirety of the series, and where the endgame of the heroes involves the desired establishment of responsible corporate governance based on a rather Utopian view of economic liberalism.

    Sure, it was a commercial failure, but for its short run, I kind of had hope that mainstream comics could move past their permanent adolescents of super-powered fist-fights, giant guns, and oddly placed T and A.

  5. I did like some of 3.0, I also liked the issue introducing Ladytron and Tao (but really nothing else by Moore), and everything Charest drew.

    But the Golden Age I loved.

  6. I love how Travis draws Wolverine to look how he was meant to. Short and powerful. I just wish his hairdo was a little more traditional.
