X-Men: The Return

So, I'm writing an X-Men novel for Pocket Books, and they hired this guy John Picacio to do the cover. So here it is.

I think this Picacio kid has a promising future ahead of him. Don't you?

Nice. Man, I can't wait to see a Picacio Justice League. You know it's only a matter of time...
Nah--Wolverine doesn't look a *thing* like Hugh Jackman.
Thanks, Jayme. Hey, if DC wants me to give the JLA a go, I'd be willing to listen. :)

Hey, Jess -- Actually one of the things that Pocket requested when they gave me the gig was that none of the characters should look like the actors from the X-MEN films. They wanted me to do my own take, which was refreshing. So if Wolvie doesn't look like Jackman, then that's a good thing.
*pets John for having no sarcasm radar*
But that Nightcrawler kicks ass!
Now aren't you afraid you won't be able to do that cover justice, Chris?
Well, actually, David, now that you mention it...
Oh wow, I can't wait to get my hands on this book! Looks awesome, John.
This whole package promises great things. What's the publication date? Gotta get one of these.

Jeff, if I'm not mistaken it's due out in May 07. Somewhere around then, at any rate.
