    John Byrne and Terry Austin - Original Art for X-Men #137, page 2 and 3, "The Fate of the Phoenix" (Marvel, 1980). More has probably been said and written about X-Men #137 than virtually any other comic book of the period. In conjunction with Marvel's 40th anniversary in the fall of 2001, this issue of X-Men was voted by fans to be the third greatest Marvel comic of all time. With this special double-size issue, Marvel began a new era of comic book heroism, as the death of Jean Grey completely rewrote the rules about what was possible in the Marvel Universe. Here is a spectacular page, one that shows every X-Man from the ongoing story, pencilled by fan faves John Byrne and Terry Austin. Overall size is approximately 16" x 22" with an image area of 15" x 21". Some slight overall yellowing does nothing at all to detract from the overwhelming beauty and historical significance of these two grand pages. Here's your chance to own a piece of Marvel history.
