    Description

    John Byrne and Terry Austin X-Men #137 Page 37 Original Art (Marvel, 1980). A very touching moment from one of the most unforgettable issues. Scott Summers and Jean Grey know the other X-Men have all fallen in their battle with the Imperial Guard, and it's down to just the two of them. We doubt anyone who read this issue doesn't remember the hand-holding panel near the end of the page. Of course, Phoenix would die just a few pages later. If Chris Claremont's poignant dialogue brings a tear to your eye, we don't blame you! Claremont's comment on the page in a recent interview was to call it "one of my favorite pages... 'We're fighting as hard as we can, we're on the moon, it is our last stand, there's no way we can survive.' In this moment, they believe they're both dead but they will face it together."

    Collectors who have a page from #137 are loath to part with them, so we advise that you don't pass up this opportunity. Ink over graphite on Bristol board with an image area of 10" x 15". Excellent condition. From the Chris Claremont Collection.
