John, apologies in advance if this has already been addressed; I did a cursory search and didn't see it.

This artwork appeared online attributed to you and Bob McLeod. Can you verify its legitimacy? Thanks.

Wish there was a date on it. Based on Wolverine’s costume and Cyclops’ visor it would appear to have been done just before I left the book, but the figure work doesn’t feel right for that vintage.

I have no “muscle memory” of it, either. So I can’t really say yea or nay.

Thank you. May I post this in a quote to answer the people inquiring about it?

As always, making sure to point out that I'm no artist,
it's strange. Some things say "JB" to me, like Kitty's and
Wolverine's faces, but other things seem...off. As a weird
for instance, Wolverine's right leg doesn't look, well,
right.

I also asked Bob McLeod if he recognized it; awaiting his response.

The full skinny visor on Cyclops looks odd to me. I didn't think that was used outside of Hidden Years but I may be way off on that.

From Bob McLeod: "I inked it directly over John’s pencils. It was a Miami Con sketch. I don’t know who colored it."

Ed, before I decided to leave, I’d convinced the powers that were to let me restore Scott’s original visor.

I’ll trust Bob’s memory over mine. The only piece I recall him inking at a Miami con was a STAR WARS scene.

If it hadn't been verified by Bob I would have said it was
a collage of various solo pieces. The Wolverine figure in
particular looks 'off' relative to the other figures.
