DESCRIPTION
A 15% BUYER'S PREMIUM WILL BE ADDED TO THIS ITEM AT CONCLUSION OF THE AUCTION
John Byrne w/Dave Cockrum pencils/Dan Green inks; page 11; 1977; image size 10" x 15"
1st Wolverine by Byrne! Best page from the issue!

1977s Iron Fist #15 marked the very first time John Byrne illustrated a Chris Claremont story featuring the X-Men. This page, the best Wolverine image in the book, features the Canadian hero making a dramatic entrance as he busts in on Iron Fist, with Logan wearing his short lived ‘Fang’ suit that was only used for three issues. An outstanding, history-making page from one of the most prolific and influential artists of the 70s. Only a few months later, Byrne would take over X-Men from Dave Cockrum (who assisted on the characters in this issue). Byrne would join with Claremont to create some of the most beloved books Marvel has ever produced. Pen and ink. The art is in excellent condition.

Artists Information

David Emmett Cockrum was an American comics artist known for his co-creation of the new X-Men characters Nightcrawler, Storm, and Colossus as well as the antiheroine Black Cat. Cockrum was a prolific and inventive costume designer who updated the uniforms of the Legion of Super-Heroes. He did the same for the new X-Men and many of their antagonists in the 1970s and early 1980s.

John Byrne is one of the most storied creators in the history of comics. Beginning his career at Charlton he quickly moved over to Marvel Comics where he established himself early on as a workhorse and fan favorite, he would draw early appearances of Iron Fist before landing the gig working with Chris Claremont on X-Men. Claremont and Byrne would create several of the most memorable storylines in the history of the X-Men, their Dark Phoenix Saga and Days of Future Past stories have been adapted into three feature films. Byrne would convince Claremont to not kill Wolverine, proving to be one of the most lucrative decisions in Marvel's history, he would also introduce Kitty Pryde and Alpha Flight during this time. After his work on X-Men, Byrne would have a short run on The Avengers before launching his second classic comic run, this time on Marvel's first family The Fantastic Four, writing and drawing the title for five years. Byrne would leave Marvel for DC in the mid 1980s where he was tasked with revamping their flagship Superman titles, he would draw two Superman titles a month while writing a third. After two years at DC, Byrne returned to Marvel where he would create memorable stints on She-Hulk, Namor The Sub-Mariner, and Iron Man. In the 90's Byrne would work on several creator owner titles at Dark Horse, including his Next Men (which would introduce Mike Mignola's Hellboy), Babe and Danger Unlimited. In the years that followed Byrne would create many more books, often working on titles that inspired him as a boy including a revamp of Jack Kirby's Fourth World and DC's Doom Patrol and The Demon.

Dan Green is an american comic book artist who mainly worked as an inker for Marvel comics as well as some watercolor illustrations for Doctor Strange covers. Dan's most notable works include Spider-Man, Hulk, Uncanny X-Men and Wolverine.
