Claremont and Manning Discuss Wolverine


The Wolverine hits keep on coming, and it's about to get really interesting with a very special event upcoming at the Museum of Comics and Cartoon Art (MoCCA). MoCCA is a great local institution here in Manhattan devoted to preserving and promoting the comic art form. Tomorrow, Wednesday, April 29th, they're presenting Chris Claremont and Matthew K. Manning in a candid conversation about Wolverine, taking place from 7:30 to 9:00 p.m. at MoCCA's Soho location.

Claremont is the key person responsible for Wolverine's popularity. Although he didn't create Logan, it was Claremont who turned him into the savage mutant with both berserker rage and a complex moral code that gave him a true heart. Claremont and Manning will be talking about Wolverine and the new DK book Wolverine: Inside the World of the Living Weapon. That promises to be a legendary conversation, one hopefully filled with many behind-the-scenes tidbits about the creation and evolution of a brilliant character.
