Wolverine Artist Looking For Stolen Comic Piece

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – Comic artist George Pratt has made his living drawing superheroes like Wolverine, but now he wishes the superhero was real.

That’s because Pratt is trying to find a piece of art that was stolen from him last week at the San Diego Comic-Con.

The piece is an 18-inch by 24-inch drawing from a comic called Wolverine Netsuke, and depicts the hero as a samurai warrior and was priced at $2500.

However, Pratt didn’t get a chance to sell it because some thief purloined it and, adding insult to injury, attempted to auction it a few hours later.

Luckily, Con organizers have turned over surveillance tips to local cops and one of Pratt’s friends believes he can identify the person who tried to sell the stolen painting.

He hopes getting the word out will prevent the Wolverine piece from being sold on Ebay but admits he wouldn’t mind if the actual hero was able to come to life and take justice into his own hands.
