X-men v1 #49, 1968 - On Jim Steranko's first take on the X-men, the members are more or less equally weighted, their figures silhouetted against a stark white background. The eyes peering from below add a surrealistic element that makes the image all the more compelling. While relatively straightforward in theme, Steranko delivers a fresh new perspective. Other artists in this issue include Don Heck, Arnold Roth and John Verpoorten. This is number 1 of 3 X-men issues with Steranko art and/or covers.
