Chris Bachalo pencils, Tim Townsend inks; image size 10" x 15"
X-MenThe X-Men kicked off Marvel's current stranglehold on Hollywood's film industry back in 2000 with the release of their self-titled debut. But the new-look team's uncanny popularity first took off in the late 70s when Chris Claremont, John Byrne, and Dave Cockrum rejuvenated the title after it was relegated to the B-list of Marvel's output at the end of the Silver Age. There are many popular X-Men but the original characters, Professor Xavier, Cyclops, Iceman, Marvel Girl, the Angel, and Beast are the heroes that started it all in 1963.
This piece is brilliantly drawn and inked by Chris Bachalo and Tim Townsend for the cover of an issue of French fanzine Comic Box and features all the original X-Men along with a menacing Sentinel!
