Approx 11 x 17 inches



Wolverine was not on the original cover, but with the extra room, sans
logo, I decided to toss him in.

With this piece, Kurt earns a second line on the Character Count chart.

Holy smokes!  That is amazing.  This must be Joe's and he is on vacation (with no internet for a few days).  Well done JB! 

Awesome decision to add in Wolverine.  I have to say JB that you just keep getting better and better.  No wonder your back on the Wizard Top-10!  =)

I looked up the original cover to remind me....and I'm having a hard time deciding which one I like more! Storms pose above really sells this one, I think.

Three posts. But only 1.5 commissions since I finished one and started
another (the Black Knight and the ladies) yesterday.

I have to say, with this latest bunch of commissions, JB has stepped his artwork up yet another level. They've just all been incredible. I mean, they were incredible before this latest batch, but they're even more incredible now.

Absolutely beautiful! The positioning of the three in the fore ground are awesome! Colossus was always one of my favorites visually and this may be minor to some, but I love the Nightcrawler! That's the Kurt I remember! It looks a lot like the Kurt Dave used to draw! (not meaning anything disrespectful, just appreciative to the incredible detail JB!).

Edit: Link didn't work for me , had to get the adddy from the properties box.

Well still, when you said they would be coming fast and furious you where true to your word.

There is no way I would ever consider my work being compared to Dave's as "disrespectful"!

Wow, that's beautiful, John!  Completely draws me into the scene.

Everyone else, for comparison purposes, have a look at this, remembering there were logo considerations in the original as well.  Recently sold at auction in excess of $78K including buyer's premium.  Tell me the commissioner here didn't get a steal?

With all due respect to Dave Cockrum, but JB's is better. Wow.
