    Arthur Adams Mutants Poster Illustration Original Art (Marvel, 1989). This poster was a must-have for any X-Men fan in the late 1980s, and it featured the art of Arthur Adams, one of the finest "detail-ists" in comics. His tremendous linework and incredible attention to every detail is what attracts so many art collectors. Rightly celebrated for his highly detailed rendering style, Arthur Adams expertly integrates the X-Men, New Mutants, and related characters from various Marvel titles here, bringing his own special brand of drama to the star-studded scene. A slightly modified version of this illustration appeared as the cover of 1988's Marvel Age Annual #4. It's a stunning showpiece by one of Modern comics' finest talents.
    A fun bonus: at the far right (visible in our uncropped online image) there's Adams' penciled checklist of the characters he wanted to use, with the names crossed off as he added them.
    The image area of this Marvelous mutant classic is 22" x 15", and aside from some yellowed Zipatone, it's in Excellent condition. Signed at the lower right.
