1987 - X-Men sketches by Art Adams

X-Men 50th Anniversary Gold Anthology

Grabbed from the Dr. Comics Facebook page (

Chris Claremont: "I'll be in Toronto this coming Sunday for a store signing. So, anyone in that particular neck of the north-woods, come on by and take a look at my contribution to the forthcoming 50th Anniversary X-Men Gold anthology. My words, Bob McLeod's art, and a story that occurs between Uncanny #'s 173 & 174, spinning out of Logan's abortive marriage to Mariko Yashida and presaging the possible future history of the S*nt*n*ls. Story's very much in continuity and Bob's work is totally finest-kind."

Here's a Wolverine sketch from McLeod from 1993.

Thor vs Malekith the Accursed by Simonson (penciled and inked version)

1980 - Battlestar Galactica #19 script page

Shared from the Walt Simonson Appreciation Facebook page:

" Battlestar Galactica 19, pg. 1. c. spring, 1980. Script sheet. 
Came across this in an old box of comics files. This is the first page of script I ever wrote for comics professionally for a regular title. My first gig as a writer of a monthly book turned out to be four of the last five issues of BG.
Don't know who wrote 'Joe Rosen' but it might have been Weezie as she was the editor of the book. Could have been her assistant at the time, but I'm not sure who that was then.
This one image postdates the Gallery's range slightly, but as my earliest bit of regular writing in comics, Old Stuff still seemed like the best place to put it."

1983 - Wolverine by Miller and Rubenstein

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Spoiler free first impressions: The first episode was quite a bit of fun. Nothing groundbreaking, but a lot of great moments and Marvel Universe tidbits to make you smile. It has a lot of potential. Until next week, keep your hands off Lola!
