X-Men Portraits

Dave and I have had a lot going on, but we’ll be back to updating this blog soon. In the meantime, here are some really great X-Men character portraits. They’re from artist Dave Rapoza, and I think they’re better than a lot of the artwork I’ve seen in Marvel comics throughout the years.
