Top 100 Comicbook Covers – #03

Click the cover below to load a super high-resolution 1315×2048 version:

003-Uncanny X-Men-143-Terry Austin

Number 03:

Uncanny X-Men #143 (Marvel – 1980)

Cover art by Terry Austin

At #3 it’s Terry Austin penciling and inking his own awesome art for the cover of Uncanny X-Men #143. I always loved Kitty Pryde and this cover really grabbed me when I first seen it as a kid and it still holds up really well. From the look on her face, the flashlight glare and of course the HR Giger inspired creature looming behind her it’s a powerful image.

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

  1. It’s a good cover. An even better story. A great one for Byrne to go out on.

  2. Heh. Out of the bare handful of comics that I still have from my comic collecting days, this is one of them.
