So basically, Chris has created a situation where he can basically ignore what's going on in "real time" Marvel, and live in the worlds he feels most comfortable.

Actually, seems reasonable seeing what's going on in Marvel these days.

Wow, i've just stumbled upon this thread and it's awesome look back and
hear stories that were supposed to happen had JB stayed on UNCANNY X-
MEN, especially the Death of Mariko storyline! Seeing JB do another run
picking up where he left off would definitely be any fan's dream!!!


I'd settle for some commissioned images showcasing such an imaginary
run!!

-C!

wow...I have been reading this post and I am mad that I have been away. The Death of Mariko would have been a powerful story indeed. Simply because you had this rough and tumble guy falling for such a sweet and demure person. This would have put to end all the Logan as a failed Samurai stuff that came JB left.

This would also open up a huge conflict between Logan and Prof X. If Logan set out to avenge her death and kill Sabertooth, how could he remain a member of the team? I think this would have been the catalyst for the team splitting up

 I was looking thru the sketchbook I was given long ago by JB, and I noticed something I missed all these years. It's the page layout to the original version of X-Men #138, before the changes were made. I hope you can make it out, I thought it might be of interest.

We have up here the initial splash page and panels of the 2 final pages. What we don't have are the panels intercalated in the flashbacks pages.
The published panels showed a mourning Cyclops as a narrator. Were the original ones substituted or did Byrne redraw over them?

Do you have a better scan/resolution of the page layout to the original version of X-Men #138? Some phrases are difficult to read!

Thanks a lot! With the new scan it was enough, you didn't have to write everything!
