Visions of an Icon: Wolverine by Dan Kim

Daniel Kim (born 1983 , in Toronto) is the artist and writer behind the Clone Manga collection of webcomics, which include April & May & June, Kanami, Nana’s Everyday Life, Paper Eleven, Penny Tribute, H.H. and Tomoyo42’s Room. Much of the content of these comics is geared towards a mature audience and, as the website’s name suggests, are influenced by and sometimes directly refer to (even featuring characters from) manga and anime. A few examples of these include Elfen Lied, Cardcaptor Sakura and Gunslinger Girl.

Some of these webcomics are ongoing projects; others run for a period of time and are then concluded.


The piece shown above is a special digital print, one of over 40 pieces featuring Wolverine donated to the Joe Shuster Awards for the Visions of an Icon Art Show and Sale by Canadian artists. The pieces were exhibited twice in 2009 – at the Joe Shuster Awards Ceremony in September and at the Speakeasy Comic Art Show in November. The original art pieces will be auctioned off on eBay in March 2010. Watch for announcements on this site!

Every day we will try to post an original piece and some information on the artist(s) that donated the work.
