Ok that is too cool!! Love this page and the previous one too... the Savage Land is my favorite story from your X-Men run so seeing you revisit it is a totally treat!

THANKS!!!

Sometimes, it's fun to see my old friends, still fighting the good fight. Thanks X-Men, for getting me through some rough teen years. And thanks to John, for all the fun over the years.

Beautiful pencils, JB. Thanks for sharing. 

The third panel is really cool, how the shape of the panel actually fits the action within (or perhaps more correctly, how you drew the action to to cleverly fit the shape of the panel), with the wider part housing Wolverine and Sauron and the narrower bit containing the flying Storm.

IMO, you know it's good story telling when you can hear the voices in your head, even without a script.

I'd like to see JB inked by Neal Adams, even if it's today's version of Neal.  Hmmmmm...

Marvel should just hire JB to do this work (adding word balloons, if necessary), publish it through kindle reader as is, and charge whatever they want an issue. We'd all buy it.

Little bit of both, really.

The scratching continues! I like dialog but who needs it with this. A graceful bow to you JB.

Excuse the skew. I wasn't fussing about squaring up my phone.

Never been a fan of the X-Men,  but there's something about JB's style, that reminds me of when I liked comic books, and this practice is better than the stuff that pops up on any of my news feeds.

So yes I would buy this, Thank you JB

Ah... like water to a man in the desert. Such lovely artwork. It made me start rereading my Namor Visionaries last night. That made it ice water, and a lovely shaded table....

A question about Cyclops. You show him operating his visor with hands. Does that give him greater control? Or is it just an exceptional look (which it certainly is here!)

Thanks. If I promise to be very good and brush every night, might we get a third page some time in the future...?

The iconic shot of Cyclops opening his visor manually does, indeed, suggest some form of greater control -- at least to me!

I'd hunt it down even if was just these two pages, with page 1 used again as the cover!
