In Logan, X-Men comics are part of the film's world. It even hints an important plot element in the film's story, and I thought it was a cool thing that contrasts the gritty realism of Logan to the cartoony imagery of the X-Men comics. It made it seem that previous X-Men films were all exaggerated comic book fiction.

Laura Kinney, a.k.a. X-23 (Dafne Keen) is clearly a fan of the X-Men comics, and we learn this while she's on the run with Logan (Hugh Jackman) and Charles Xavier (Professor X) from the Reaver. Did you know the comics were made for the film? Thanks to Slashfilm, we get to see what artist Dan Panosian illustrated for Logan. Before, he posted the cover for The Uncanny X-Men that was featured in one of the trailers for the film (as shown above). Now, the artist also revealed the inside pages of the comic:

According to Panosian, these pages aren't from the inside of the issue that was seen in the trailer. , nor are they from the issue that becomes a key part of Logan's story. Instead, these pages were made for other prop comic books, just in case they were opened in the film.

Logan is now showing in theaters.
