Uncanny X-Men #145

We conclude our Cockrum tribute by posting this beauty from his second run of X-Men in the mid eighties. I always thought he was the quintessential X-Men artist due to his unique character design and dynamic action scenes. It made quite an impression on me as a kid and it continues to be some of my favorite stuff. He was also very nice to me when I met him around the time this issue came out. He was the first comics professional I met and he was great. A super guy all around. He will definitely be missed!

Yes he will be missed! He was one of the best artists of the 70's and 80's.
