Number 07:

Uncanny X-Men #139 (Marvel – 1980)

Cover art by John Byrne
Inked by Terry Austin

Why is it that so many GREAT covers and fantastic comic-books came out in and around 1979-1982? Part of the reason is the Legendary Dream-Team of John Byrne and Terry Austin. It just doesn’t get any better than this!

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


  1. That tag line is probably the most notable thing there. It’s become one of the more famous X-Men lines, used repeatedly over the years. Sometimes, it feels like they use it just about every time someone new joins the team.


  2. I was hoping this cover was going to be in your top ten, what with the introduction of what came to be my favorite X-Men character for many years.


  3. Wastrel – me too! I love Kitty.
