Another classic cover

Here's another comic with great cover art:

(X-MEN #50, Marvel Comics, November 1968)

Artist Jim Steranko (cover AND interior) pulls out all the stops with this stunning tour-de-force... it's one of my favorite covers of all time. Check out Steranko's use of composition, lighting and color, and the simplicity of the layout... not to mention his generous use of the glorious Kirby "Energy Beads"! What's not to like?

(Yes, it's available at Comix Connection for a mere $95.00... it's even more gorgeous in person!)
