Wolverine Vs Sauron by DaveDeVries Wolverine Vs Sauron by DaveDeVries
I did this in '93 for an X-men card set and it is one of the few pieces that I felt really proud of then that's held up over time. The editor of the card set told me it was a failure as a card though. wolverine was too small on the card when printed-- "...made a better poster."

Wolverine is pretty vicious against all his opponents.

I can remember walking past the comic store and seeing this piece; it literally stopped me in my tracks.

While i understand the logic your editor was applying, I think that it's an over simplification in regards to what makes a good card. Often times, I'd wished that the artists would pull the camera back a bit and allow for some atmosphere; especially in instances where multiple characters are involved.

This does work well as a poster, but if you crop twenty percent of of either side of this composition, it still owns.

I think I still have this card. I was in awe of the art back then and I still am now.
