I noticed a couple of Jim Lee pieces inked by our own Scott Williams.

Scott, I have to ask, did it ever irritate you that Jim drew so many lines?  Did you ever think to yourself that if you were inking, say, Steve Dillon, you would've been finished in about 1/3 the time?

Would be a whole lot cooler if it featured the Brotherhood instead of a team that was forced into reprints in well under a decade.

Could be worse -  could be a Hulk splash. They cancelled him after only six issues.

It was listed for sale at $225K on Anthony's website and on CAF very shortly before it was consigned to Heritage.  Anthony has had it for sale for the better part of the past decade.  I think it suffered from comparisons to the X-Men #2 splash (lots of drama here on the Boards surrounding that one, as old-timers will recall), which sold a bit before the #4 hit the market (now many years ago), both in terms of the content and the price tag.  And then, it didn't sell for many years as it just became overexposed and acquired a bit of a "what's wrong with it for it to not be selling for so long" taint.  Maybe it will get some fresh eyes on it at Heritage.  

Speaking of the #2 splash, I don't know who picked it up, but, man, was that ever a shrewd buy - whatever stink it had around it from the drama of selling the piece (long story; maybe someone can find the old thread about it) is now long gone, and now what remains is just a historic and excellent Kirby X-Men splash.  Maybe the #4 can similarly be rehabilitated if someone takes it down at a reasonable price and buries it for a decade...or two. 

I hope the Heritage description of the #4 will disclose the condition issues and restoration work that was done to the page.

Just for reference. Personally I like 2 better than 4 but both are spectacular.

But I just can't get past the Paul Reinman inks. Yuck.

THIS THE MOST IMPRESSIVE PIECE OF ART I’VE EVER SEEN !!!

I didn’t even know this was CAF. Or even that this is how the art was done by McKean. 

Thanks for pointing this out.

Is it still owned by Scott Eder?
