There were many things to be enjoyed with the release of the second trailer for Logan last week, and chief among them was the revelation that the X-Men comics exists in the movie universe.
In fact it was nothing short of awesome to see #Logan himself holding an X-Men comic in the trailer. But as cool as it was, the shots of the panels definitely didn't linger long enough for a decent look, which is why it's so awesome that artist Joe Quesada has now shared the images with fans on his personal Tumblr page.
Quesada worked closely with Logan director, James Mangold to create the panels especially for the film, and even revealed that he created more than one page for the movie, though presumably we won't get to see those until it premieres! But before we dream of what those other pages might contain, let's check out this one in closer detail:
The finished result
According to Quesada, penciller and inker, Dan Panosian was responsible for giving his images "a more 90s ink and coloring style," adding that he believed Panosian totally nailed the look.
It might just look like some random scribbles, by Quesada explains that this was the rough layout for the panels, while he was still working out placement.

Moving on from the rough outline, you can see the final ideas are coming together in this draft. Despite looking a lot like the finished product, you can still see some elements and characters will be added or moved around, including Colossus's head and arm.
The finished product
And finally you have the finished product before it was inked. What a process!
