George Pérez has always been one of my favorite artists, but not one of my favorite cover artists. But the UNCANNY #112 cover was really amazing, one of the best covers I have ever seen on a X-Men book.

Odd coincidency, I bought the American comic (I owned only the Italian edition) just a week ago.

Those look awesome.  They actually make me want to re-read the original issues.

Didn't I buy that issue from you Dave?  You want it back?  You have a bit of an obsession going, and you're starting to scare me.

I just love Magneto, he isnt so much evil as he is a genuine asshole.

Great covers on both sir.

That's okay, Ryan, I sold you the spare. This copy of X-Men #112 was my "1st comic", the one that started all this crazy comic collecting, and specifically, John Byrne art fandom. So far, it's signed by JB, Terry, Chris, George, and Bob Layton.

Funny, I did get that one from you, and found another copy in the long box this week.  Now I have the spare.  Oops.
 
JB, most excellent work.

I have always loved that cover of X-Men 112 from the first time I saw it.  The idea of Wolverine threatened by his own claws was totally captivating.

A few years ago, I did a "recreation" of the cover, attempting to be more "on model" with JB's versions of the characters-- George and Bob did it beautifully, but I just wondered how it would look if, say, Storm's hair were done in JB's style--

It's amazing how undynamic me aping JB redoing this cover turned out compared to how JB has ended up doing it himself.
