    Barry Windsor-Smith and Terry Austin X-Men #186 Story Page 32 Original Art (Marvel, 1984). Powerless and disheartened, Storm faces an existential crisis over the two-part "Lifedeath: A Love Story," which serves as the quintessential character study of the X-Men's resident weather goddess. On this page drafted by master craftsman Barry Smith, we see the first signs of the budding romance that would develop between the mohawked X-Man and Forge. The artist's visionary approach has made this one of the most unique and revered story arcs in X-Men canon. Ink over blue pencil and graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". Storm's mohawk is discolored original art paste-up in all panels except Panel 5. The mohawk paste-up is held down with tape in Panels 1, 3, and 4. The bottom and top left corners are trimmed. Excellent condition.
