Anonymous asked: Stuart, I was wondering what the story is behind the Uncanny X-Men Omnibus #2 cover you and Wade drew. Did Marvel ask for a close rendition to John Byrne's original or was that your decision? I love your interpretation of the cover (so much I bought the original). Thanks Be seeing you, Brian
I think Marvel often offers reproduction/tribute covers for their Omnibus editions. This is certainly not the first, anyway, but that was the brief for this project. I thought it was odd that I was asked to provide a sketch for it, but maybe that was just for accounting purposes.
