    Jim Lee - Original Cover Art for What If? #13 (Marvel, 1990). What if Professor X of the X-Men had become... the Juggernaut? Well, that's exactly what Jim Lee was asked and this cover is what he came up with. Lee's masterful pen and ink skills are brought to full force to give us a glimpse of an alternative direction the world could have taken if that possibility had come to fruition. It is genuinely rare to find X-Men art from Jim Lee where he alone pencils and inks the artwork; most of his X-Men art has an inker or finisher. The art measures an overall 11" x 17" and has a 10" x 15" image area, and is double-signed, both when originally created, and then at a later convention appearance. Clean, and well kept, this work sits on a sheet of brilliant white bristol board with some minor retouching in white out. Includes all the original logo, indicia and type paste-ups. Lee's unyielding ability to translate primal energy to paper was never better realized than in this stupendous delineation. Signed by Jim Lee at the bottom.
