Description

    Dave Cockrum X-Men #100 "Death of Jean Grey" Pages 27, 30, and 31 Original Art Group (Marvel, 1976). The Jean Grey "Phoenix" storyline was one of the most memorable sagas of comics' Bronze Age, and it was the death of Jean shown on these pages that started it all.
    When the team's badly damaged space shuttle has to fly through a solar flare, Jean realizes that she is the only one who can hold the ship together, pilot the aircraft, and save the crew. In the end, she saves the team but is not able to hold back the radiation.
    Here we see all of the intense dialogue leading up to Jean Grey's death and how Phoenix comes to be, a sequence strikingly similar to the three pages leading to the death of Dark Phoenix in issue #137, including Jean's final scream, "Scott!"
    Cockrum handled both the pencils and inks here, and his talent for characterization is very much on display. The final page in particular has been reprinted on a number of occasions. While the movie "X-Men United" altered some of the setup of the situation it featured a similar sacrifice by Jean leading to her death.
    Note that the break in page numbering is because of non-story pages that were in-between, these are three consecutive pages of the story. Each page has an image area of 10.25" x 15". Aside from lettering corrections to the first panel of the third page, held in place by a piece of tape on the back of the page, the art is in Excellent condition.
