The scanner preview is not twisted. Neither is the thumbnail.

AHHHHHRRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!

I'm sitting on my terrace, enjoying the sun and watching Gwynn romp in the back yard -- and feeling my stomach churn with reminders to GET BACK TO WORK!!

I've lived with that all my adult life, but in my past few months of "unemployment" it had mostly gone away. Doing this project has brought it back!

SEE HOW I SUFFER FOR YOU?!?

No cover : at first sight, I believed your 1st page
was the cover...and what a cover ! Can you do better ?

2nd issue : If it's a two-parter...you know what you
have to do to clean up your pipe/brain, for god's sake
!

But why for free ? and why stop here ?

JB, you've been the best artist in the biz' for...40
years (as least for me and dozens, thousands ? where
are your 40.000 byrne addicts, who would allow great
comics to live ?), what are you gonna do in your
retirement ??? Nothing ????

Come on, you are what you are, and for many many years
more ! And you are definitely enjoying it (again).

Whatever your decision is, thank you for this, for
being you, you have touched and make many many people
happy through the years and just done it again !

I wanted to feel sympathy for you John...but I just keep thinking of the brilliant results of the itch you started to scratch. 

As such, I'd happily and without remorse, keep adding itching powder to all your clothes and bed sheets despite knowing I really ought to let you enjoy your well-earned rest.

Sorry and not-sorry.

A page with a bit of tweaking.

Really wish I had not tossed out my 3D model of the StatoJet in a fit of pique when XMHY was cancelled!! Had a model of the Sentinel ship the team was using for a while, too!

Definite improvement in the changes you made to Cyclops' face and that super-close-up on the landing wheel is even more dramatic than your first pass.

It's curious conundrum this question of when or how the statojet firmly became the blackbird.

You lost Wolverine's squint in the last panel. Important with shots like that to ink ON the line, not outside it!
