Description

    John Byrne and Terry Austin - X-Men #136, page 17 Original Art (Marvel, 1980). Just when things seemed to be looking up for Jean Grey and the X-Men, the team was suddenly whisked away from beneath the gazes of Jean's parents in the final page from "Child of Light and Darkness." Cyclops, Phoenix, the Beast, Wolverine, Colossus, Professor X, Wolverine, Storm, and the Angel all appeared. John Byrne and Terry Austin received tremendous fan acclaim for their efforts on the Dark Phoenix saga. This key page was the lead-in to one of the most dramatic moments of Marvel's Modern Age. Professor X had just engaged the evil Dark Phoenix in a psi-war, and had finally managed to subdue her (with help from Jean Grey's own subconscious). With dramatic plot twists such as that, it is obvious why many Marvelites regard the Dark Phoenix saga as the pinnacle of the Chris Claremont and John Byrne team. The image area of the page is 10" x 15". Aside from some minor paper aging, and a caption lettering paste-up at the bottom of the page, the art is in Excellent condition.
