Uncanny XMen 350 cover by TimTownsend Uncanny XMen 350 cover by TimTownsend
By popular demand, here is the cover to Uncanny X-Men #350 by Joe Madureira and myself, our last issue in fact. I had to scan some old, really bad photo copies to make this and spent over an hour and a hald just trying to clean it up to make it presentable. It looks ok at a glance but, when you begin to look at the smaller details in some of the background characters for instance, youll see what I mean. This is the best I could come up with.

I thought about erasing the cheesy message I put by our sigs' but, hey, its how it was published and how I was feeling at the time. When Joe left Uncanny he asked me to come with him to work on this crazy creator owned thing called Battle Chasers. As badly as I wanted to stay with Joe I knew him well enough to know that, left to his own devices and being his own boss, he wouldnt be able to get me enough work to remain busy. Having bills to pay I made the business decision to remain on Uncanny. Though it was, without a doubt the right decision, it hurt like hell each time I saw something Joe did come out with someone elses inks. Happily, I was still able to work with him now and again and even got to do one issue of Battle Chasers. Tons-o-fun. Im rarely happier than when Im inking Joe so hopefully we'll get a chance to do it again sometime.
