Mighty Zarquon, what a piece!

Love the understated cityscape for Galactus to stand behind!  Makes a giant piece feel even bigger!

Man, that's great. Also a reminder of just how well-written the Doc Ock / Reed issue was.

That's my best guess, but it is a guess.  I'm not sure.

I'm anywhere between 10 and 14 years old again looking at this commission.

And admittedly, a little weepy. Beautiful.

I love how you also saw fit to include two versions of the same character within the same piece... Blastarr, Dr. Doom, Frankie Raye, Franklin Richards, Sue Richards...

Nice touch.

It's absolutely wonderful, JB -- great to see the gang together. I've been reading your run over the last month as a palate cleanser for all that news about the recent movie. It all still holds up, and I enjoy it even more each time I revisit the stories.

Oh crap. Faulty memory... I was confusing the "un-Heralded" Terrax with Blastaar.

It's been a while since I read the original stories--thanks for the correction!

It's interesting how Galactus isn't the "HUGE guy" in this line-up... 

How often do you see that??

I made that mistake, too, at first glance.

Ok.  Wow.

THIS is the best thing I have seen all year.

How I miss the glory days of Marvel when Byrne was king.  Dang.  So many good memories.

And jealous I am of whoever commissioned this.

Or whoever does this X-Men.  Or Alpha Flight.  Or Marvel Team-Up.  Or Avengers.  Or She Hulk.  Or Namor.

Wonderful piece!
Love how you let yourself channel those periods styles. Not only for nostalgic value, just personal taste. Great combo of old feel and new skills.

Absolutely beautiful piece, JB. Sums up an era unlike any we'll see again (IMHO).

That's my best guess, but it is a guess. I'm not sure.

By a process of elimination, could she be anyone else?

++++++++++++

Took me a while to recognize Jean Grey, too.

Well, that just baffles me! How many women appeared in torn black dresses during my run?
