Comic Book Cover of the Week! Mohawks & X-men!

Remember when The X-Men were really bad ass? Back in the 80’s they sure seemed that way-with Storm sporting her mohawk and Wolverine tokin’ on a cig reciting Clint Eastwood lines on their beautifully drawn John Romita Jr. covers. Man those were the days I tell ya! This amazing cover is taken from the “Mutant Massacre” storyline that ripped out the souls of their readers back in the 80’s. The same storyline that took Angel’s wings away from him and introduced Sabretooth as one of the most frightening villains the X-men and Wolverine would then continually face off with. Anyway John Romita Jr. was putting out some of his best artwork ever back then and this cover is a reason why to this day he’s still in the lime light as one of the best in the industry!

    I first started reading comics at the “Mutant Massacare” stage of the X-Men…it rarely got any better then that series. I got this comic in 5th grade I believe and I remember I used to color in the iris’s of the eyes on some of the drawings…doh! I’ll see if I can find mine and send you a pic.
