Description

Seems like it was only yesterday...

This title splash was produced during Cockrum's second run on Uncanny X-Men (the first being his famous launch & co-creation of the new X-Men characters Nightcrawler {who he considered an alter-ego of sorts}, Storm & Colossus in the summer of 1975 and continuing in issues #94-105, 107). He was replaced by artist John Byrne in issue #108 after Marvel decided that the book was popular enough to move to a bi-monthly schedule...and after the speedier Byrne let is be widely known he wanted to draw the book. After introducing the Shi'ar Imperial Army and the Starjammers, Cockrum left the book - exhausted by the pace and behind deadline - in the middle of 1977 and Byrne got his wish.

Byrne eventually left the book in 1981 and Cockrum returned to the title with issue #145. He would stay with the book (with the exception of issues #151-152 & 159-160) until issue #164 in 1983, at which time he would begin work on the Futurians.

Powerful first page scene. This is what a splash should be, and it draws you in the read the rest of the story.

I only discovered Cockrum's art MUCH later than most, but I think it holds very well, even without the nostalgic attachment. Congrats on adding this beauty to your collection !

This is indeed impressive, Chris. It was great to link up with you at the SDCC, and I look forward to your future updates with a certain page that you purchased from DM.

Cockrum's second run on the title produced some great art, as he hadn't lost a step. This title page is a perfect example of how good Cockrum really was. Beautiful work from my favorite period of this book.
