Before we continue, I want to take a moment to observe some of the artistic changes that have been taking place over the last few issues. The X-Men are maturing, both as characters and as a comic. The series is beginning to feel less like a monster-of-the-month novelty and more of an ongoing saga. This is reflected throughout the writing, the layouts, and the artwork itself.
The first big changes to the X-Men staff are occurring during these recent issues. This is the staff of issue 11, and up until now Jack Kirby has done all the pencilling and Stan Lee has done all the writing. Now that is about to change, as some new talent is being brought in. The era of Lee and Kirby doing most of the work has ended sooner than I would have imagined.
