Thanks again, Rob!
Back before we had the internet we had fanzines. Magazines for fans having interviews  with writers and artists. One was called The Comics Journal. This image was from the cover of issue 57.  Thanks Gary great art I look forward to the next one you do.

A personal question: How much Zip-a-Tone have you got stashed? :D

Not as much as I would like!

Very awesome! Is this based on another piece or is it totally original?
It's an accurate recreation of a quite famous work by Byrne and Austin from their X-Men days.
