|Frank Cho – X-Men intelocking covers – click on thumbs to enlarge|
One of my favorite comic books growing up was the X-men. I can clearly remember buying my first X-men comic, right off the magazine rack at People’s Drug Store in Calverton, Maryland. It was the Uncanny X-men #166, double size issue no less! It was brilliantly illustrated by Paul Smith and written by Chris Claremont. It was that issue that introduced me to one of my favorite characters of all time: Wolverine.
Fast forward 28 years later, here I am drawing a giant X-men interlocking cover with pretty much all the X-men characters ever created including my favorite Canadian, Wolverine.
As I’m hunched over the drafting table, drawing the night away. A calm bliss overtakes me. I’m 11 years old again.
Yeah. I love my job.
