"Dave Cockrum - Original Unused Cover Art for The Incredible Hulk #208 (Marvel, undated). The Green Goliath battles blasting baddies on this unused cover by X-veteran Dave Cockrum. The cover that was actually used, by Marie Severin and Frank Giacoia is, in many ways, weaker than this dramatic masterwork, which is jam-packed with blistering battle action! Fully finished in pen and ink, there is evidence of blue pencil markings underneath the drawing, and moderate use of whiteout. The speed lines have been created by actually gouging into the paper, giving them a rough, textured appearance. Measuring approximately 11" x 17", with an approximate image area of 9.75" x 15", this page displays some tanning along the edges of the image, but is otherwise in excellent condition. It has been signed by the artist near the lower left edge." http://comics.ha.com/c/item.zx?saleNo=804&lotNo=7278

The Uncanny X-Men had become the biggest franchise in comic books by 1982. Chris Claremont’s writing rose to find perhaps his most poignant and challenging expression of the mutant metaphor in “God Loves, Man Kills,” while his work with Frank Miller on WOLVERINE skyrocketed the character’s popularity. With culmination of Paul Smith’s classic run—featuring the growing romance between Kitty Pryde and Colossus, the first appearance of Callisto and the Morlocks, Rogue’s debut as an X-Man, and the wedding of Cyclops and Madelyne Pryor—this Marvel Masterworks is nothing short of a marathon of mutant milestones!
Collecting UNCANNY X-MEN (1981) #168-175, UNCANNY X-MEN ANNUAL (1970) #7, MARVEL GRAPHIC NOVEL #5 and WOLVERINE (1982) #1-4.

As the phenomenon dawned in 1977, Marvel Comics published the very first STAR WARS comic-book series. Now, the House of Ideas is re-presenting those original adventures in its wampa-sized Omnibus format! It’s the return of the Jedi to Marvel in an opening volume that begins with A NEW HOPE and ends with THE EMPIRE STRIKES BACK. In between, the rebels face a wealth of new perils — from space pirate Crimson Jack to the bounty hunter Beilert Valance, as well as a surprisingly svelte Jabba the Hut (one “t”). Luke goes back to Tatooine, Leia battles alone, Han and Chewie play the deadly Big Game, and Darth Vader hunts for answers! With all your old favorites and plenty of new faces — hello, Jaxxon! — there’s no doubt, the Force is strong with this one!
Collecting STAR WARS (1977) #1-44 and ANNUAL #1.

"The Orphan Maker. Pencil. 8.5 x 11. c. 1988. A character from the X-Factors I drew for Weezie. I liked this guy. He was about 7' tall or a tad more, but was proportioned like a young child. I don't think that ever really registered on anybody else, but I thought it was pretty neat. Apparently, I drew a simple normal-sized human manikin to the left for scale."
