Sorry, I've been watching too many History Channel  'reality' series lately, so you have to imagine my comment in that narrator's voice.

Please remove this post if it's a problem at all, but I wanted to communicate anticipating that there could be a problem with people getting this and then selling printed volumes unfortunately. Generally for some pin-ups/commissions, or unknown fan comics, this wouldn't be an issue, but this is a well known artist unofficially revisiting with complete stories and is new territory I think for comics (but very old ground for recorded music).

If this were a problem a solution could be that Marvel makes it an official free download/streaming feature through their web domain or something like that. That would really take a bootlegger's chance of bilking fans that don't know about the work otherwise out of the equation.

Trying to be helpful as I am wanting to read/see these very much!

I see the view count on the actual thread has jumped dramatically. Frustrating that I can’t keep the “feed” going until Optimum rectifies whatever needs rectifying!!

There’s nothing we mortals can create that can’t be turned to evil. Efforts to prevent misuse of these pages would undoubtedly prove fruitless.

Involving Marvel in the process would serve only to drag in all the elements that form the bulk of my reason for choosing this manner of “publication”.

I just read on social media that some people are talking about creating mock covers for these issues, so they can print them and have them in their comic collections. I thought that was kinda cool.

Interesting. I don’t recall JB saying he had done any covers. Wonder if any have been done.

Imagine some "fan fic" covers for the issues by other X-artists? Maybe I should say X-Men artists? The mind boggles...

Really looking forward to this in it’s purest form and greatly appreciate
your generosity in sharing so much of your work and time for free. This
is a staggering undertaking on your behalf and I hope that fact is not
taken for granted. Thank you.

That said, these last two days with your internet down have been
excruciating although,conversely, the last time days seemed this long to
me I was about 7, so there is that, I guess.

Still no internet. Received an email from Optimum apologizing for missing the “appointment” yesterday and crediting me for two free movies on Pay per View.

Nothing about when I might next expect them, tho.

Cut cable! Looks like my lawn service guys must have been digging and severed the line. Problem is, all the lines in the neighborhood are UNDERGROUND.

These guys are working with other companies, like Marney or Disvel ? Or is it a Stephen King's lawnmower ?
The good thing in this is that the longer we wait, the better it will be !

Well, looks like they might almost be done. When I get back online I’ll post several pages to make up for lost time.

This is amazing.  

Having seen page one already, I wasn't expecting to be blown away and yet, by page two, I had been.  The second panel, with the close up of Lilandra and her advisor, is fantastic and immediately took me back.

Lots of little things get me.  Scott and Professor X "sound" right to me, which they haven't in years (unless I reread old issues), like they have their voices back.  The mystery with the Shi'ar "containment" -- while I have the most obvious guess -- is still fun.  And it's great to see the pages again with the words JB has written.

(I hadn't noticed Peter's right arm the first time we saw page 4. Very well done.)

Sad that we won't see covers, but I'm pinning that on yet another way Marvel has disappointed me.

Thanks, JB.  I'm grateful that you are sharing this.

Great sequence.  I like particularly how you segue quickly and painlessly to Kitty's matter-of-fact stowing aboard the Blackbird with a minimum of fuss.  Another writer I know might have had Kitty going back and forth in her angsty teen head for four panels re whether she could stand to disappoint the Professor and how "no quarter was given and none asked."  You got straight to business and it saved more time for story.  Can't wait for more.

Terrific pages. One of the things I love about your
writing is the dialogue. It just fits the characters so
well.

Dear Fake X-Men Letter Page,

Lilandra walks again. Sprite phases again. Scott Summers is a brooding
loner again. It is uncanny (pardons begged for) how much story each page
contains -- at least for an old obsessive Byrne X-Men fan. I was afraid that
one page a day would feel too close to nothing a day. Instead, living with
page 1 alone for so long proves how much one-page a day feels like much
more than that.

Make Mine X-Men Fan-fic!
Yrs. etc.

Wow, these pages are SO good! The "Wolverine tripping" sequence is
fantastic, as is Colossus defending Kitty, Nightcrawler unintentionally scaring
her, etc. This is a blast.

So pleased your internet connection is back. I wish all comics were still made this way: well drawn, written and edited by one person with a singular vision and lots of talent.
