John Byrne and Terry Austin X-Men #114 Sauron Splash Page 31 Original Art (Marvel, 1978). This page is Sauron's first appearance since issue #61, way back in the Roy Thomas/Neal Adams run - and this tale was in the hands of the only creative team of the 1970s who could match giants like Thomas/Adams, panel for power-packed panel! We're talking about Byrne, Austin, and Chris Claremont, and this was just the sixth issue with all three members of that trio on board.

    Byrne's curvaceous rendering of Storm is characteristic of his early work, as seen in his Charlton days and his earlier Marvel efforts. The Savage Land is the locale where the presumed-dead mutants (this was the issue with the "Day the X-Men Died" cover) come face to face with someone else whose rumored demise was greatly exaggerated.

    The image area of this mutant masterwork is 10" x 15", and the art is in Excellent condition. Both artists signed and inscribed the art at the bottom of the page in 1996.
