The recently released trailer for Logan — Hugh Jackman's final outing as Wolverine — has fans hopeful it could be the best in what can generously be referred to as a patchy trilogy of solo films for the character. The central focus for the new trailer is the young girl left in Logan's care by Professor X, who it was revealed will be called "Laura" confirming her as at least analogous to Laura Kinney, the X-Man formerly known as X-23 and currently starring as the new Wolverine in All-New Wolverine.
Laura first appeared in the animated series X-Men Evolution before making the leap to the comics as Wolverine discovered the existence of his teenage female clone. Laura has been a huge part of Marvel Comics for over twelve years now, and there's a lot of continuity packed in there, but we've picked out the five best comics to help familiarize yourself with the character.
Each year at Comic-Con, amidst all the chaos, there's one moment that stands out. It's a significant moment that, even if you don't witness it, you remember exactly where you were and what you were doing when you heard it happened. And while I've not taken any kind of formal survey, I feel confident saying that this year, that unforgettable moment happened when writer Christopher Yost closed his eyes and drew Batman with a giant set of balls.
Inspired by the website Blind as a Bat, artist Olly Moss approached a bunch of industry friends at Comic-Con with a task: close your eyes, pick up a marker, and draw Batman. Among those who stepped up to the challenge were Becky Cloonan, Mark Chiarello, Jock, Jhonen Vasquez, Duncan Jones, Mark Buckingham, and many more, and the results are amazing. You can check out a few examples, including Yost's masterpiece, below.
