Madureira/Townsend Reminiscing...

Pages are listed chronologically.

Uncanny X-Men 334, p.19. I especially love the panel with Juggernaut screaming in Jean's face, and the last one where J's removed his helmet. Lots of emotion and vulnerability here. Definitely a strong memory of my comics reading as a kid!

Uncanny X-Men 336, p. 17. There's a lot of nostalgia for me in Onslaught baring Xavier to the heroes (I think they made a toy that re-enacted this?). This was just a great scene, and I love the nice Onslaught headshot to the right, but what really delivers this page for me is Cyclops in the lower-right corner with his gritting pointed teeth. You can't get much more "it's about to go down," than that! (Unless...)

Uncanny X-Men 340, p.17. OK. So you CAN get more "it's about to go down." A super-angry Wolverine about to let loose on some mutant-haters. This is bone claws Wolverine, somewhere between his animalistic/bandana time and being back to normal. That's pretty awesome.

Uncanny X-Men 346, p. 7. In the bottom panel, this is THE image I see in my head when I think of Marrow. Definitely a favorite.
