    John Byrne and Tom Palmer - Original Art for X-Men: The Hidden Years #6, Cover and Complete 22-page Story (Marvel, 2000). Now this is what comics are all about! The whole dang shootin' match of some of the greatest pages from the X-Men oeuvre, brought to you by two of the most talented artists to ever work in comics, John Byrne and Tom Palmer. This is a fantastic, action-packed story that features one of only two times a member of the "New" X-Men (Storm) ever made an appearance in The Hidden Years. These stupendous pages, drawn by Byrne, show an artist at the peak of his power and truly in control of the medium. The figures and backgrounds practically blast off the page. Another master artist is Tom Palmer, who's had a long career in the business and whose work gets better and better with each story he inks. These powerful pages feature X-Men mainstays Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Angel, Beast, Storm and Ka-zar. The pages are not stamped on the back because Palmer keeps all the original pages and sends high quality photocopies to Marvel to print from. The signatures on the back "Byrne and Palmer" were done by Palmer. Included are photocopies of the work in progress, giving you an insight into how the creative duo works, showing how Palmer integrates his inking with Byrne's pencils. Overall page size is 11" 17" with an image area of approximately 10.5" x 15".
