Whole lot of flashbacks working on this one. But one in particular stands out.

Of course, after all these years, I had to pull reference for a lot of these characters, including the Hellfire Club guys. Flipping thru those issues, I came across the scene where Wolverine attacks the guards in the basement of the Club. At one point one of the goons gets the drop on him, and fires at him with a machine gun. Wolverine drops behind some crates, to emerge virtually unscathed a few seconds later.

When we plotted that moment, Chris and I were playing up Wolverine's "healing factor". The dialog was supposed to indicate that the slugs had gone straight thru, which is why Logan why able to heal so fast. But when Shooter saw the pages, he ordered Chris to rewrite it, indicating that the shots had only "grazed" Wolverine -- which was, of course, not at all what I had drawn.

Logan healing that fast was, Shooter declared, "unrealistic".

Time it was, and what a time it was. . .

There it is. . .

After I "finished" the piece, I sat staring at it for several minutes, seeking out that one unfinished detail that almost always seems to appear after I have scanned the work.

In this case, it's Cyclops' left forearm, which is lacking the blacks. ARGH!!!

Except for a brief "walk on" with Black Tom Cassidy, Juggernaut did not appear during my run.

I opened the page and the words "Oh . . . my . . . god" dropped from my slackened jaw.
