Original Cover Art: X-Men #137 by Byrne and Austin
20th Century Danny Boy ferreted this one out: a great scan of the original art for this classic cover. I'm putting this up for one reason: its amazing to see. As a professional inker, I have to admire Austin's linework up close and personal as much as I can.
Enjoy. This was part of a run of issues that was as good and classic as anything ever in superhero comics.
More discussion of recreations and "grails" and original art to come.
