Great page, but oy!  And it's not even relatively important, as far as the book goes.

Great page from a historic book.

Is this the most for a Byrne interior (not counting splash pages) at public sale?  I can't recall anything higher than this.

This is a popular page. If I recall correctly, JB has recreated this page as a commission. This is not a page usually sold on the market. Pages like this usually sell higher if they have had only one or two owners over the years.

Personally, if I had that spare money I would commission three full comics from JB. But I do understand the love for that vintage.

That whole book is class....

Hold on, what am i thinking....the whole run is class!

Byrne and Austin firing on all cylinders!!!!

Marvel really should commission an:

Uncanny X-men: The (what if Claremont was) Hidden Years...

where John and Terry just run wild!!

Since it's Terry Austin getting the moolah, I am happy. Still, the buyer
should think long and hard how much JB art he coulda had for the same
price.

The Death of Phoenix is a piece of comic book history!

If i had that amount of disposable coin...it would be mine...

I will have to wait! and be content with my page from X-men 126...for now!

It's a very nice page, but sheesh for that kind of money I can think of other JB pages I would rather have -- to say nothing of the possibilty of new artwork.

I must admit though that I don't have the attachment to the Dark Phoenix saga that so many do.  It's a great story, but really it wouldn't even make it to my Top 10 of JB's work let alone comic stories in general.

*****

Is Terry Austin selling that?  It doesn't have his and JB's signature on it, which would indicate it came directly from Terry Austin.

Brad B:  "They're nuts"

****

I don't agree - if I had a bunch of money, I would pay for original art from anything Dark Phoenix.

My emotional connection to the story is strong.  And I have a personal fondness for original art from published work - every time I save up for a commission, I end up buying a page from a favorite book that JB has had published.
