    John Byrne and Terry Austin X-Men #139 Wolverine First Appearance Reprise Page 25 Original Art (Marvel, 1980). Imagine Incredible Hulk #181, but with art by perhaps the greatest penciler-inker team ever, Byrne and Austin! You need not imagine it, as the duo summarized the first Wolverine story in this X-Men issue, near the end of their tenure on the book and at the peak of the artists' powers. With a rematch with Wendigo in the offing, this recap was called for, narrated by Logan. Action shots of Wolverine, Wendigo, and the Hulk are worth the price of admission here, but you also get to see Wolverine's old and new costumes on the same page. Byrne was careful to include the "whisker" mask that Wolvie only wore in those Hulk issues and had changed by the time he joined the X-Men team. Nightcrawler and Alpha Flight's Vindicator join the fun. Image area of 10" x 15". Aside from clipped margin corners, the art is in Excellent condition.
