Click the cover below to load a crazy high-resolution 1334×2048 version:

038-Uncanny X-Men-142-Terry Austin

Number 38:

Uncanny X-Men #142 (Marvel – 1980)

Cover art by Terry Austin

A LOT of people, guides and databases (including CollectorZ’s Comic Collector) have this cover credited as another John Byrne/Terry Austin team-up. This is actually one of the rare Terry Austin Pencil+Ink solo efforts. This shows that in addition to being the best inker of all time he is also a pretty great penciller as well.

Come on back tomorrow night for more in the count-down of my Top 100 favorite comic book covers.


  1. This is one of the most dramatic, memorable covers ever. It’s just a great, chilling visual.


  2. I still remember picking this one up at the comic book store when it first came out. That was one of the best storylines in the entire X-Men “universe”.


  3. Good to hear from you Wastrel! It’s been a while.


    • I still wander around a bit. 😀
