Like others have said, the casting is an odd choice to me, but I have to say I’m intrigued.
Age of Apocalypse by Gerardo Sandoval
This “jam sketch” of the X-Men was drawn by six separate artists, five on July 10, 1982 and the final one on August 21, 1982. The artists involved were:
- John Byrne – Kitty Pryde
- Bill Sienkiewicz – Wolverine
- Dave Cockrum – Nightcrawler
- Paul Smith – Cyclops
- Bob Wiacek – Storm
- George Perez – Colossus
So very cool!
It’s on a cable channel while I’m eating lunch, and I’m struck by how terrible most of it is. Except that last fight scene. That one scene is pretty epic.
I guess all the money went into that scene, and that’s why they couldn’t afford Angel a realistic looking set of wings.
New Mutants by Alex Ross
Oh my, this is cool. I loved the New Mutants book when I was younger and it first appeared. I love Alex Ross as an older fan. And they meet here! Hurrah.
Baby Erik and Nightcrawler by Vitorugo Queiroz
These are fantastic and adorable.
Wolverine & Heather Hudson commission by John Byrne. 2012.
I love how Byrne draws Wolverine.
I had a rare chance to get out to the movies yesterday, and, of course, I went to see X-Men: Days of Future Past. I loved this film. I think it’s the Avengers of X-Men films and would highly recommend it.
I was particularly struck by how well the film managed all the time travel, epic world changing plot stuff, while also keeping the story very human for all the major characters. Each major character has a story arc that is relatable and moving. It was impressive to me as a narrative, beyond my own love for the X-Men franchise.
