  2. Hey Anonymous, I did indeed enjoy the post-Claremont days with Alan Davis taking charge. His art and story flowed well together, a bit better than when he collaborated with Claremont IMHO.

  3. Hey Jason,
    That cover of the X-men Omnibus was originally an unpublished (yet solicited) 2 part cover. Whilce Portatio did the other half. You have quite a collection of artwork. Might you have a copy of the other half? Or both halves together?

  4. Although a bit of a misnomer, I'll be making sure to pick up the Claremont/Lee X omni.

    The 2nd omni of their run(s) together is a far better bet, though.

    I second the post-Claremont Excalibur run, as well - Perhaps Davis' best Marvel work.

    Love this site, BTW!
