Oddly enough, the current issue of Wolverine and the X-Men (# 28) has a cover whose depiction of Wolverine looks a LOT like the Wolveroach cover on Cerebus 54!!! I would paste the image if I knew how, but check it out.

And the winner is...!

The "drawing" on the right is positively ugly. I wonder how they can hire such hacks at Marvel?

That recent cover HAS to be a tribute to Dave Sim - right? If you see that cover in person, Wolverine's jaw really is comically prominent, like that of the Wolveroach.

As for the river of drool coming out of Wolverine's mouth on the cover...um...maybe it is highly symbolic.
