    Gil Kane and Klaus Janson Giant-Size X-Men #2 Cover Original Art (Marvel, 1975). The original X-Men battling Sentinels! It's about as classic an X-Men image as you can hope for! Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Iceman, the Angel, and the Beast are all present in their second-generation costumes. Gil Kane's work spanned decades from the Golden Age of Comics to the Modern Age, but he's especially remembered for his iconic covers for DC and Marvel during the 1960s and '70s. This ranks with his most memorable Marvel work that includes the covers for The Amazing Spider-Man #129 and Giant-Size X-Men #1. Here, inker Klaus Janson complements Kane superbly.
    The cover was produced in ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 9.75" x 15". There is a bit of whiteout art clean-up, and glue residue in the margins from a missing production mask. There is also production tape residue in the sides of the image area. The header dressing and logo are stat paste-ups. There are slits in the board next to the logo paste-up, and staple holes in the top margin. Signed by Stan Lee in the top margin. In Very Good condition.
