An Artist’s Edition featuring the groundbreaking and bestselling X-Men series from the late 1970s, by the stellar team of Chris Claremont, John Byrne, and Terry Austin. This is an art book, not a traditional collection of comic books, featuring rare and beautiful imagery, a collection for connoisseurs of the form.
With stories like “The Dark Phoenix Saga” and “Days of Future Past!” John Byrne’s work on X-Men became one of the most influential and popular comics of the 1970s. Included in this stellar Artist’s Edition are pages from John Byrne’s classic run and an amazing number of covers!
An Artist’s Edition publishes scans of original art at a high resolution and prints it at the same size it was drawn. While appearing to be in black and white, these images were scanned in color, allowing the viewer the best possible look at the artist’s intentions. You are able to see blue pencil notations, corrections, margin notes, and all the little nuances that make original art so unique and special. The only better way to view comic art is if you were standing over the artist’s shoulder as they were laboring at their drawing table.
