It hit me today that Kurt's face in the falling sequence looks (to my eye) more
like Cockrum's original design than the one I remember from JB's run.

...which (to me) is a very cool thing.

I was looking at Dave’s work quite a bit on this “issue”.

Suddenly the outage seems like a benefit, with a nice flow of pages to read in a row. If this was available as a regular-sized issue in one go, I would burn through it straightaway. 

Remember when you used to come back with a pile of comics from the LCS and there'd always been one obvious candidate to be the one you consumed immediately? This would be that comic.

Shame we lost the what's adamantium? line, but it all reads so smoothly. So glad we'll be getting to read more regularly.

Wow! Page 2 in particular!

We're not worthy.

Yes, they sound like themselves again to me too.

Very, very nice. Even having seen some of these pages before, we instantly realise there is more going on down the road than we thought.
Entity. Oooohhhhh

Ooohhhhhh indeed!

As I mention before, in ELSEWHEN I am playing much the same game that I played in STAR TREK NEW VISIONS, setting my tales in "the Past", but allowing myself access to elements that were not known the first time around.

Right from the start, this bit of Fan-Fic does something vitally professional: it respects the principle that every issue is somebody's first. I was looking at the pages thus far as if I had no clue about any of these characters, yet with a minimum of exposition quite a bit of grounding information is offered immediately.

I was a reader of this vintage of the X-MEN -- but if JB happens to draw in elements from after my time (circa 1981), because of this first-issue principle, I've no worries I'll be lost. Nice!

Even though we've seen this pages before, the art looks fresh looking at it again. Struck by the sheer size of Colossus in the page posted today and the jet is drawn so tightly, no need for inks when the pencils are that tight.

I am a HUGE fan of serial storytelling. I think reading/writing "for the trade"
has hurt the comic industry in some ways, and I think we've lost something
with the ability to "binge" television shows. There is something magical (and
even IMPORTANT) about having to wait a week (or, in the case of comics, a
month) for the next installment of a story. It gives the audience time to think
about it, to talk about it with other fans, to anticipate and get excited.

So, to have a single page every day of JB's X-Men... this is really something
special.

There are some "quiet" scenes in the pages/issues ahead, which I may post all together, since they have no real "cliffhangers" in them.

I feel young again!

I know you can't be compensated for this (outside of selling the original pages), but is there anything we can do as a way of saying thank you for it?

Wonderful pages.  The body language of the returned X-Men on the second page is great.

I most certainly will, JB! But since you saved me about $35 by posting them here for free, it only seems right to pass that money along to a good cause :)


Thanks again!

Uhm.... thanks? Now let’s just hope Marvel’s lawyers don’t decide that qualifies as “compensation” to me.

?? I'm at a loss as to how that could happen. I didn't donate in your name or anything. I was just grateful for that 'kid in a comic book store' feeling again and decided to pass the money I "saved" onto an organization that has been tremendously helpful to my family. If their is something you would like for me to do to make it clear that you didn't benefit in any way, feel free to let me know.

I love the twist, if it is such, on the entity. Looking forward to seeing that subplot play out!

Like everyone else here, I am in awe of these pages. Art and dialogue is on point. What an amazing journey that lies before us...

Thank you, John.

Fun summer? Given the amount of material JB has said he's already completed, I imagine we'll be reading Elsewhen through the remainder of the year!

Woot!

How can I say thank you enough for this dream come
true ? I'm 13 again. I already knew you had
mastered time travel stories but once again, thank
you for this, Santa Byrne ;)

A memory.......

Around the time I quit UNCANNY a couple of guys producing an “independent” announced that they’d had “creative differences” and intended to continue their project as TWO books, one by each of them.

I don’t recall if that ever happened, but it created a smallish flurry of fan speculation about Chris and me doing the same. So, thirty nine years later, I guess this is that!
