Marvel Comics Fan Art — The Original X-Men

Sothe_original_x_men__in_color__by_dondalier-d5svr22 I have to admit to a bias in that I am very fond of the orig­i­nal X-Men team. More so than any line-up since then includ­ing Clare­mont and Byrne’s “All New X-Men”.

But what really appeals to me about this image by Don Davis is that it has such an old school feel to it.

From the poses, to the expres­sions on their faces to the bright color that Davis has used, this is the sort of image I can completely see appear­ing on the cover of a 1960s X-Men comic book.

Old school is not neces­sar­ily a bad thing.
