Wolverine: Old Man Logan Comic Display in Seoul, Korea

On March 1, "Logan," apparently the last Wolverine movie, was released in South Korea.
Perhaps to dovetail with the release, the massive Kyobo bookstore in Seoul is going all out to promote the comic "Wolverine: Old Man Logan."
I'm not sure why they chose to push this particular collection of stories, since it was originally published in 2010.
This is the Korean language edition of the trade paperback.

There isn't much dialogue.
However, there are plenty of appearances of iconic characters like Captain America and Doctor Doom.

Other Korean X-Men and Wolverine titles.

Anyway, I thought it was neat to see how other countries treat heroes from the US. There's no question that Japanese manga dominates the Asian comic scene. But American superhero movies and characters are also popular, and there's some love out there for the comics that spawned them.
