Approx 11x17 inches

(And, no. Before anyone asks, I have no idea who is in the pictures obscured by Ben and Franklin!)

Gotta start teaching these sentinels what a mutant is.

Fantastic art.

Too bad you weren't doing FF and X-Men at the same time when the "Day of Future Past" storyline was published -- I could easily see this being the cover for a Fantastic Four crossover special -- the story could have recounted the Fantastic Four's role in that future tale.  Perhaps Ben and Franklin helped Kitty and Wolverine at some point off-panel . . .

Well, my "resolution" was to limit myself to one JB commission, and I've now done the easier part of it.... I'm getting chills just looking at it!! Thanks John (and Jim) for making this happen.

Y'know, it's often been said that no one ever wrote a great story by sitting down and trying to write a great story. Great stories are often a surprise, to the writer as much as the reader.

The same can be said of iconic covers. I think of how many times this particular image has been reinterpreted, by artists other than myself, and I think back to when I drew the original. Nobody, least of all me, would ever have guessed that cover would cast such a long shadow! Or that the "Days of Future Past" storyline, which was supposed to be a one-off and done, would keep coming back and coming back and coming back and coming back and coming back and coming back and coming back and coming back and coming back…

This is great!  I really love what you did with the lettering at the top of the piece. 

Now where the heck does this fit in the gallery?!?!?  FF covers?  X-Men covers?

FF covers. Not an X-Man in sight!
