Phoenix The Untold Story #1 - John Byrne art, cover & reprint

John Byrne
Phoenix The Untold Story v1 #1, 1984 - This special edition reprints X-men #137, the stunning conclusion to the "Dark Phoenix" saga. Printed on heftier paper with brighter colors, the issue also boasts a five page alternate ending never before published. Accompanying this is an idyllic splash of Scott Summers and Jean Grey, intended as an alternate opening to X-men #138. Byrne's new cover seems basic and straightforward, but when viewed with the back cover, the full panorama is spectacular. An in-depth interview with writer Chris Claremont and Byrne rounds out the book.
