DESCRIPTION
22" x 17" Wraparound cover, pencils by Chris Bachalo and inks by Tim Townsend

An outstanding full double-page spread wrap-around cover that kicked off the Supernova's storyline in 2007 which ultimately led to the big mutant event called Messiah Complex. The Supernova's storyline featured one of the most diverse and eclectic team line-up yet and this cover features that entire team, including: Cable, Cannonball, Iceman, Lady Mastermind, Mystique, Omega Sentinel, Rogue and Sabretooth. This cover was also the published wrap-around image for both the hardcover and softcover edition of the collected Supernova's storyline. Features an incredible and dynamic composition by Chris with the trademark bold, detailed, and incredibly technical inks by his long time collaborator Tim Townsend. The cover is on 2 separate 11" x 17" Marvel Comics original art boards. X-Men covers by Bachalo and Townsend very rarely come up on the market, let alone a hyper-detailed, epic team shot from an iconic storyline.
