Sweet diggety!!! Another top notch commission JB. Nobody seems to mention it, so I will. You draw the best looking Blob out there. I bought a Hidden Years page just because it had the Blob on it. Add this character to the list of you drawing the best versions of. Oh yeah, the rest of those guys look pretty darn swell also.

I rarely comment on these threads because I always seem to come to them late and anything I say seems almost redundant compared to the praise already given. This one just seems to stand out so much to me that I just had to say how great the work is here. Everything about it is perfect.

Absolutely wonderful piece. The X-Men stuff has been a treat what with the
pure enjoyment I am getting as I plow through the fantastic Omnibus that is
currently out. I think this is the first "Days of Future Past" we've seen on the
comission front - is that correct?

First you've seen. I did a recreation of the cover to
the first part, but it's not in the Gallery.

Excellent as always, JB. Mystique's Brotherhood gives Magneto's a run for its money any day of the week.

The commission is X-celent, everyone looks as they should. Wish JB were back at Marvel....

Anyway, if asked, I would have bet a lot of money on JB being the creator or at least co-creator. I had no idea she first appeared in Ms. Marvel!

JB: "I did a recreation of the cover to the first part, but it's not in the

********

The cover to "Days of Future Past" part one is hands down my favorite comic
cover, and I know a lot of people agree what with the constant homages/rip-
offs we see! I still remember seeing it on the spinner rack and just staring at
the image. I used to immediately flip through the book, but I was glued to
the cover on that. Bravo choice to whoever commissioned that and also to
the person who commissioned the piece at the top of this thread.

Let me point out that Tim's got a recreation of that scene proudly on display at his home.

Yes - Mike is referring to a diorama statue sculpted by the Kucharak
Brothers and it is very cool. I have a copy of the cover issue handy as it's the
one thing on my bookshelf that civilians always ask about. Seeing these
commissions has my head spinning with thoughts of ordering one of that
piece someday. I have seen it in B&W recently - I found an interview book
recently called X-Men Compendium 2 with interviews with JB, CC, and TA
that had the original art before the colors. It seems even more effective in
B&W, just like the piece at the top of this thread

Anyone know who owns the original art on that? It's so iconic you would
think that whoever has it probably has it on display. I hope it's not sitting in
a box somewhere.
