Marvel Reveals Covers For 'Wolverine and the X-Men' #1 and #2

Following the inevitable break from Cyclops, Wolverine gets his own X-Men team together.

Yesterday we got our first peek at the first two covers of Uncanny X-Men featuring Cyclops and his new team following the inevitable split resulting from Schism. It was only a matter of time until Marvel revealed the first two covers to their all new series 'Wolverine and the X-Men;' which will also be stemming from the split of the team. Writer Jason Aaron (Schism, Scalped) will be bringing Logan to the forefront of the X-Men as a new leader, and he'll be getting help from Chris Bachalo on pencils. Check out the solicitation and cover art for issue's #1 and #2 below.

The Hellfire Club makes its next move in 'Wolverine and the X-Men,' and it seems Wolverine is going to be getting his hands dirty fighting some monsters three times his size -- not that that's ever seemed to stop him before. Are you looking forward to 'Wolverine and the X-Men'?

looks cool

Posted by ImperiousRix

Probably the one X-book coming out of Schism that I'd think about reading. Loving the cover art, and I think the team is pretty interesting.

However, can't say I'm heavily invested in the X-Men and, with the New 52 still getting underway, I don't know if I've got the fundage to add yet ANOTHER title to my pull list.

Still looks cool.

It would be great if Bachalo wasn't drawing the book

I'm not a huge fan of Bachalo's art
Posted by Jonny_Anonymous

I'll probably side with Uncanny X-Men tbh but I will be getting UXF also

Is Wolverine fighting Krakoa in the second cover?!

How does Bachalo keep getting work? I've seen better looking stuff floating around in my toilet.

who is the blue character in the monsters mouth saving the girl, it kinda reminds me of bling!

Posted by KDarkholme

Cant wait until it's released

Posted by AfternoonWalker

does anyone know who all of the members are? there seems to be more than the shadow reveals.

Dig Bachalo, always have, I think its a love it or hate it thing with him. Kind of like brussel sprouts (which I love).

In the first picture I love the phillips and flathead screwdrivers in Beasts belt.

Only thing I'm not looking forward to are all of the classic wasted X-Men panels giving everyone's view of the schism.

i thought i would give it try despite the fact that i am not a wolverine fun but after seeing the art i say NO WAY!!! so yeah most likely im siding with uncanny x-men

Posted by pspin

Can't wait, this looks so cool. I want schism to end faster so these books will come out

Posted by AgeofHurricane

Who the heck are those new guys ? (they look kinda cool, especially the 2 girls next to Kitty.)

Those covers don't look...good.

i saw these a while ago

Posted by DominionX

Sooo...Wolverine is a soccer mom now? I really don't see how they are going to spin this "kinder, gentler" Wolverine.

Posted by noj

I really dont understand all the hate Bachalo is getting. Judging from these two covers I love the art!

- 500000000000 cool points. :P

Kidding, I love what I've seen from Bachalo though... that X-Men (adjectiveless) story arc was pretty cool.

So... Anyone want to do a left to right for me?

Posted by mikeclark1982

is that on the second cover... is that... THE ISLAND OF KRAKOA?!?!?!!

Posted by Gambit1969

Loved Bachalo when he did Steampunk, but his art just doesn't seem right for the X-Men.

Posted by newxfactor

Who is the blondie next to Kitty on the first cover?

Posted by pixelized

Bachalo is garbage.com

AoA iceman and 616 Iceman on the same team??? O_O And all those weird floating demon people(they all look like nightcrawler, unless thats suppose to signify teleporting)

Posted by AfternoonWalker

Oh man! those nightcrawler clones... there Bamfs! mini nightcrawler clones from the 70s!

Posted by ninjacommando

Soooo about Wolverine and the X-Men cartoon show...we want season 2. I honestly wouldn't mind a continuation of the tv show through comics either as long as it was canon.

Love Chris Bachalo's work.

However, since I first started following him on Generation X, his style of storytelling has dramatically improved and regressed in different areas. I love his simple, fluid line-work in foreground characters. But sometimes the man needs to reel himself in; especially, when in comes to detail and moving the reader from panel to panel.

Steampunk is a great example of how wonderfully textured and organic his work can be. Unfortunately, that kind of artwork worked terribly as a narrative. There's SO MUCH happening on the page and so little room to work in. I often had to 're-read' pages to figure out what heck just happened. Also, Joe Kelly's script did not help alleviate any of that 'confusion'. In retrospect, the series would've made for a fantastic, ARTBOOK, but not necessarily a comic book.

Hopefully, Chris Bachalo will keep himself under control in Wolverine and the X-Men because he's the reason I'm even remotely interested in the title; it sure as hell ain't because of Ol' Patch himself.

Digging Bachalo's art as usual, but two Icemen on the same team? And that McCoy still looks a lot more like Dark Beast compared to lovable old Hank (the red goggles, tools, and lack of feline features).

Posted by Gambit1969

I don't think that is 2 Icemen...can't really tell, that's some of the problem with Bachelo's art...the charactors aren't always recognizable

Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus

Not bad! Never had anything against Bachalo's art and those covers look good!

Edited by Lonestar88

I'm a fan of Bachalo, but these covers are not good. I can't even tell who several of the characters are.

Posted by haydenclaireheroes

I do not really like the art for the cover but I think the series should be interesting. It has a good team and i think Wolverine could be a good leader.

Posted by box1992

looks pretty cool

Posted by TheBlackHood

Other than Iceman, I couldn't care less about any of these characters, which is why I'm glad they are tethered to the overrated douche bag that is Wolverine. Good Riddance you drunken midget, feel free to forget where Utopia is.

Posted by Chaos Burn

dislike Bachalos art

Edited by fodigg

I love how the second cover is just Wolverine.

edit: Looking closer, I can see that it's actually not just Wolverine, but man I shouldn't have to look twice to see the rest of the team. That's almost as bad and it seems like a result of the colorist's choice.

Posted by goldenkey

LOVE BACHALO. Hope he stays on for a while. Glad to see Night Crawler in more then one book too.

Posted by Arevish

LOVE Bachalo, HATE his Wolverine :/

Posted by Omertalvendetta

I dare half of the people saying Bachalo sucks to even remotely draw anything good.. that said, Greg Land and John Romita Jr., you can all make fun of now!

Posted by The Impersonator
Posted by The Sadhu

I'm still confused... is that Dark Beast or Regular Beast?
Posted by Namor1987

Could be Azazel's kids. Lol I wonder if he'll be involved in this somehow

Posted by Mutant God

can someone tell me whos on the first cover I cant recognize half the people
Posted by AfternoonWalker

maybe the second 'iceman' with the clothes on is rogue?

ZOMG. Leaves Vine for eternity.

Holy hell, that #1 cover is awful. And what the hell is that to the right of Kitty? Is that.... a cobra wearing a suit?

What the **** is going on here?!
