DescriptionJim Lee and Scott Williams Uncanny X-Men #268 Cover Black Widow, Captain America, Wolverine Original Art (Marvel, 1990). An iconic cover beloved by Jim Lee fans, this cover is designated by CGC as a "Classic Cover". It's easily one of the most striking covers Jim Lee has ever produced, and that's from a pretty amazing body of work! It is easily one of the Top Ten covers of the early 1990s era. The artwork was originally sold to a collector at a high premium (compared to Lee's own then c. 1990s cover art prices), and hasn't been on the market since then. So this is a very rare and long-awaited piece that could easily get tucked away for many years in some other lucky fan's collection. This could be your only shot to make sure it's your collection!
The cover features the Black Widow, Captain America, and Wolverine. Three characters that have a surprisingly related backstory that was divulged in this issue's flashback sequence.
The art was crafted in ink and Zipatone over graphite on Marvel Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". There are staple holes in the margins, and adhesive residue on the upper left and top margins. There is production registration tape on each margin. There is a very small tear in the bottom right corner margin.
It is signed by Jim Lee and Scott Williams in the lower margin. The corner box, logo, and all cover text are stat paste-ups. There is a vellum overlay with the hand-inked city in the background and a Zipatone screen used in a color-hold process, and another detached paper overlay with a partial color guide for the cover. The color guide has minor creases throughout. The art is in Excellent condition. Modern Masterworks from the Jeff Nason Collection.
