Nostalgically revisiting the comics of the 1980s since 2008.
I was a DC kid until I read this issue of X-Men and was instantly hooked! All my birthday/Christmas money for years after went into getting all the back issues I could of the X-Men. This is just a amazing 2 page spread!
This 2-page spread captures so much action, it's a freeze-frame during the X-Men's own invasion of their mansion! Smith always rendered my favourite versions of Wolverine, Cyclops, and Colossus.
Love this splash spread, showing the kids how it's done.
It's such split-second shot that Cyke's blast hasn't even made it across the room yet! :)Paul Smith seems to be hugely under-rated in comics. I was very psyched to see his art on the latest "Rocketeer/Spirit" mini-series from IDW, only to see him drop out and be replaced by a sequence of fill-in artists. The "fill-ins" have been good, but it would have been so nice to see Smith do the whole thing.
Sublime! I loved Paul Smith's work.
