    Description

    Barry Windsor-Smith Uncanny X-Men #186 "Lifedeath" Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1984). A whole generation of young readers was blown away when this issue hit the stands - most 1980s kids were too young to know Barry Smith's earlier work on Conan et. al., and Marvel picked the perfect showcase for the artist's stunning talent. Storm and Forge (in his first appearance) star in this lyrical cover scene for the tale, "Lifedeath." X-Men scribe Chris Claremont has cited "Lifedeath" and "Lifedeath II" as two of his favorite Storm stories, and these stories have remained powerful and integral parts of Storm's narrative. This Marvel milestone has an image area of 9.75" x 15", and the art is in Excellent condition.
