“Today, in our field, there is so much talent and recognition that we are reaching a saturation point. An artist should no longer strive only for breathtaking craftsmanship; he should, instead, try to help us live better, either by dressing the wounds that are constantly being opened by society, or by offering solutions to get us out of the mess we’re in…But it’s going to be difficult and we have a lot of work to do.” - Jean 'Moebius' Giraud

Actually, she never really kills Cyclops in the comics.

Scott Summers meets and falls in love with Jean Grey. They have adventures together as part of the founding members of "The X-Men" until one day an entity called the Phoenix Force enters Jean's body and uses it as a vessel. All is well until Jean goes bat sh*t crazy, flies off into space and kills a ton of different people throughout the galaxy. During a fight for her freedom against the Shi'ar Imperial Guard who have accused her of committing mass genocide, she takes her own life as a supposed grand act of sacrifice in order to save the X-Men from becoming overwhelmed.

You crazy and selfish bitch.

That... is... stunning. I particularly love that phoenix head. Simply wonderful!

One of his best ever.

Epic piece! I love everything about it.

I love your take on X-characters--the characterization is always so right on, yet with little touches tweaked, re-imagined, or more fully realized than I've seen before.

(Okay, I'm obviously an X-Men nerd. More X-stuff please?)
