“Rushed” became a go-to choice for describing my work several decades ago. It happened when DC screwed up the release dates, and several of my projects, all in the pipeline for months, got dumped into the marketplace all at once. Minibrains who have no idea of production schedules and assume work is produced right before they see it, immediately declared the work “rushed”—obviously I had taken on too much and it showed. (One of the jobs was OMAC. I invite anyone to tell me what looks “rushed” there.)

Typically, once the word was in circulation, it stayed, whether accurate or not.

It's been a long long time since I read XHY so I have to admit I don't remember these characters. Will have to have a glance through the trades.

Page two is definitely a major nostalgia blast. Marvel heroes working together!

I wish that the Beast had never been transformed and I wish he'd be turned back. Because of that, I love how Hank's face comes through in that final page 2 panel. The real McCoy!

That was something that started working its way into my drawings of the Beast after HIDDEN YEARS. After all, I reasoned, becoming "blue" and furry does not necessarily indicate a major restructuring of facial bones.

An attempt was made. with the launch of X-FACTOR, to de-fur the Beast but, alas, it did not take. The blue Beast had been around longer than the original, and was deemed the "real McCoy" by most fans.

The engineer in me is really liking the inner view of the Sentinel's body -nice!

And all the marvel brains working that Sentinel is pretty awesome too.  Only one missing would be Hank Pym, but considering his robot history that may be for the best...

What is this compulsion in some people to look at a list or a group and immediately seek out whoever is “missing”?

Mystifying.

Avengers, FF, and X-Men all on the same case is quite a
sight to see! It's a joy to see them together, while at the
same time it relates the gravity of the sitaution. This is
the kind of ordeal that would bring them together.

And that's really cool to know about Hank's face! I've
always been partial to furry Beast, but a lot of his better
stories are when he is depicted in his human form. So this
is a great intersection.

Nothing rushed there, clearly a labor of love. And no muddy colors to distract from the duo shade. Wish I could still find that stuff, quite liked it.

That first panel is an instant modern classic. I've said it before, but I'll say it again: so much fun!!

Love Reed, always cool to see the classic Iron Man and nice writing from his perspective to describe Sprite's powers that way.
