1985 - Anatomy of a cover - Uncanny X-Men #191

  1. This was/is one of my all-time favorite stories, I think #190, and #191. The "barbarian" versions of the 2 teams---how cool, and that "device" has been used since, like Avengers Vol. 2 #2.
    Romita's sketchy style was perfect for this story. It doesn't always work, for me, but that run of X-men was well served by his pencil(s).
    Great cover.

    happy holidays

  2. Recolor the background portraits and this would've been a great poster. X-Men Vs Avengers, 1984 style!

  3. Seeing Spider-Man killed in that issue spun me out. Great cover, please keep the JR JR X-Men covers coming Jason! :)
