Uncanny X-Men #520 Final Cover Art

So here's the final colors for Uncanny X-Men #520 which Greg Land drew the interiors for (Greg did the cover for my issue, #519, and so in return, I drew the cover for his issue). I also did the cover for the March issue, Uncanny X-Men #522, alas, I'm not drawing the story. I return to the interiors with the April issue, Uncanny #523, which is part of the "Second Coming" crossover.

For Terry Dodson/Star Wars Fans

Dark Horse Comics has just released a new collection of "Star Wars The Thrawn Trilogy" which features all 3 miniseries (a total of 420 pages) with the first volume featuring the art of Olivier Vatine and Fred Blanchard, the 3rd volume the late great Edvin Biukovic and the middle volume with art by me and Kevin Nowlan and under theepic covers of Mathieu Lauffrey. I'm a life long Star Wars fan and I took a year off from Marvel Comics for the chance to draw this miniseries. It was a really labor of love for me and I was very happy with how with how it turned out.

You can get this book right now at Amazon for $23.37 - a heck of a deal-

Uncanny X-Men #519 Preview

There is an interview with writer Matt Fraction plus 6 pages of art previewed of Uncanny X-Men 519 here-


Uncanny X-Men #518 Page 8 Behind the Scenes

So, here's Matt Fractions page description with my thumbnail sketches all over it. I had a pretty good idea of how this page would look - just a matter of which way to tilt some of the panels.

Next is the partially finished page where I'm trying to nail down Emma's facial expression. Matt wanted to go with a Fellini feel to this - thus the 8 1/2 scaffolding in the background of panel 2 and Scott's Marcello Mastroianni inspired hair, glasses and suit. It was a fun change.

Finally, the finished pencils.
