Red Wolf by Christopher Tyner

So here's an oddity-- a costume redesign for Red Wolf, with art clearly based on John Buscema's work. Comparing this to Javier Saltares' Official Handbook Of The Marvel Universe entry, Will Talltrees looks a might warmly dressed for a Southwestern hero. I guess he does make his way to New York every now and again, and there's the whole "naked savage" stereotype plaguing him. The skin cap does come across as silly outside that context though. I also detect the influence of Bronze Age Timber Wolf, but I always dug that look, so I'll let that pass.
