Everything about these pages INSPIRES!

I could read them over and over, all day, every day.

Once again, I find myself going over all the detail, particularly the little nuances with faces, with each new page.

Agree Matt.
JB, when drawing a team, does your "muscle memory" know each character (out of costume) or do you use references?

Elsewhen is going in some different directions from what would have followed 137 without Shooter's interference, but the light/dark hair will still play an important role as a visual marker.


With a lesser craftsman, this would have been chalked up to inconsistency. I should have know there was a reason behind the difference. That attention to detail and contemplation is what makes this work so special.

That famous Jean-post-lobotomy opening from Phoenix The Untold Story had the "open" hair. Perhaps an indication that her story was over?

No, it didn't.

That last panel of Phoenix is just... wow... love the "throw-back" to the original uniform details with the smaller phoenix and the line down the front.

Love that Cyclops and Storm are reminiscent of the late
great Dave Cockrum's rendering from #101. Respect!

Some serious time travel on page two. Love it! And especially, as Michael noted, the homage to Mr. Cockrum's work on Uncannny X-Men #101.

But can the X-Men hear her if she doesn't tell them to do so?

Incredible. 40 years later, and I'm only just now noticing this!
