If you’re looking to get a great gift for a comic lover or particularly a fan of X-Men from the 90s, then this book is a must have. A book that contains Jim Lee‘s artistry while working on the X-Men comics. These are the same source pages that would be used as a base for the animation in “X-Men: The Animated Series.” Obviously the drawings we 80s and 90s babies have all come to know and love.
The book is LARGE, sitting at 14 x 20 inches. It contains covers, splash pages, pin-ups, and interior pages that Lee illustrated. Each image was scanned from Jim’s original art for the book. It allows you to see the finite detail that went into every production he worked on. For any fan of Jim Lee this is a must have and will become a cornerstone of their collection.
Included in this book are some of the most iconic images ever drawn by Lee. Including the mock up for this one which was featured on “X-Men #1,” and used in many promotions for the comic since.
