    John Byrne and Joe Rubinstein Amazing Adventures #6 X-Men Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1980). Byrne and Rubinstein recreated a Marvel-ous moment from the lives of the original X-Men on their cover for Amazing Adventures #6. The Blob and his band of cut-throats surrounded the original Children of the Atom in "Carnival of Death." Byrne's showdown was inspired by the 1963 Stan Lee-Jack Kirby thriller, "Beware of the Blob," which was first printed in X-Men #3. It's important to note, that at this same time Byrne was also drawing his renowned covers for the new X-Men, so here's a chance for a true-blue X-Men fan to add a cover featuring the original team to his portfolio of Byrne art, drawn during that key period. Considering that Byrne only did 17 covers on the main title, and covers from that run sell for tens of thousands, this may be a wonderfully affordable alternative for a classic-period Byrne X-Men cover. The image area of this masterwork measures 10" x 15". The cover retains its original masthead and logo photostats, and the art is in Excellent condition.
