Comic Book Art: Pete Wisdom by Trevor Hairsine Comic Book Art 10 JUL 2013

This piece of attention grabbing comic book art comes to us courtesy of British artist Trevor Hairsine, featuring a rather worried looking Pete Wisdom hurriedly scurrying away!

And just in case you don’t know who Pete Wisdom is, well: “Pete Wisdom is a fictional secret agent published by Marvel Comics. He first appeared in Excalibur vol. 1 #86 (February 1995), and was created by Warren Ellis and Ken Lashley. Wisdom is a British Secret Service agent with the mutant ability to throw “blades” of energy (“hot knives”) from his fingertips.”

And now you know.

Trevor Hairsine: X-Men: Deadly Genesis Cover (2006) Comic Book Art | Comic Books 24 MAR 2012

From writer Ed Brubaker arose 2006’s X-Men: Deadly Genesis, which pitted the team against a mysterious and deadly enemy who originated out of the team’s very own history and had returned to take them on from outer space, following the events of the epic House of M storyline. (Hint, it was Vulcan).

Artist Trevor Hairsine handled the interior pencils on the book, and although his was not the official cover to the first issue of the series, he did get to produce one of the two variant covers in which the book was also published, with his focusing on everyone’s favourite hairy and quite stocky X-man, Wolverine.

Looking at the one they went with as the official cover compared to his Wolverine depiction, well let us just say that this is one of those silly editorial decisions that I just don’t get!
