Wolverine And FLCL’s The Pillows Fall Foul Of Marvel’s Legal Department

FLCL (pronounced Fooly Cooly) is an anime from Japan shown on Adult Swim, but more commonly available on streaming sites and DVD/Blu Ray, about a kid with a doorway in his head to giant robots. The theme music for the series is by the Japanese band The Pillows.

Wolverine And The X-Men: Alpha And Omega is about a world placed into the heads of Wolverine and Armor by the student Quentin Quire.

The solicited cover image saw him with a button reading P!, the logo of The Pillows. But on the actual cover, this had been changed to PI.

Mark Brooks, the cover artist, is a big FLCL fan – as are a number of Marvel editors. Sadly the legal department wouldn’t allow themselves to get equally carried away…
