KEY PAGE from the Only NEW MUTANTS issue penciled by legendary X-MEN artist John Byrne. Inked by The New Mutants co-creator Bob McLeod, and signed by both Byrne and McLeod!

All on one single page. Page is great, central panel is awesome. Don't miss out on this important piece by John Byrne and Bob McLeod, with the whole New Mutants team saying no to Magneto, protecting Illyana, reversed to childhood, yet finally freed from Belasco's evil realm. This page depicts a crucial moment in mutant history. The New Mutants are back from Limbo with Ilyana, who has reverted to childhood, and they are now confronting their teacher Magneto in this 1989 classic half-splash page by John Byrne. This is the only New Mutants issue he did for Marvel after his legendary Uncanny X-Men run with Chris Claremont - it has been said he only accepted to pencil it once he was assured he would be able to show the return of Magneto's evil nature. Evil Magneto, the way John Byrne had always seen him. The page is also beautifully inked by Bob McLeod, who created the New Mutants team together with writer Chris Claremont. In this key story,'King of the hill', Magneto, who had taken over the guidance of the New Mutants from Professor Xavier, is finally opposed by his students: they have realized at last that Magneto's motivations were not as pure as he had first claimed. This very page marks the turning point in the relationship between the New Mutants and Magneto, as well as the return of Illyana. John Byrne is one of the most popular comic artists, and certainly one of the most popular creators to have ever worked on the X-Universe.
Magneto has long been the X-Men's most popular villain and Byrne's take on the character is among the most coveted. 1980s pages by Byrne are scarce and sought after by comic art collectors worldwide. And this page has it all.
