Even as a fan I didnít care for the Masters name. Too precious.

One could say "thread drift" here -- but is there supposed to be a thread when you're just getting by on methadone?

Creating a story like ELSEWHEN offers plenty of opportunities, so I have to say I appreciate what JB deals with here-- with the ability to include pretty much any Marvel character(s) he likes, there's always the risk of setting in motion a story that will pull focus away from that title's central characters.
As appealing as it might be to bring in Avengers or the Fantastic Four or alien threats like Skrulls (who have rarely fought the X-Men), it can be a detour away from the X-Men and start down the road to MARVEL UNIVERSE: ELSEWHEN... which I get is NOT what JB wants to do.

On that basis, I'm so glad we get to see the pages that were not ultimately included, because it gives us a look at "what might have been"... which the creator wisely chose to set aside.

Very interesting Spider-Man page. JB. Mind bending to determine which way is up. I rotated the page 180 degrees and the visual elements don't strain the eye with the exception of lettering. Impressive to create a page that could just about be displayed upside down or right side up.

When you're drawing a page like that - do you rotate the page so the given figure is "right side" up?

First, a story.

Thru my childhood and early teens, my Dad, in addition to his day job(s) at City Hall, was a freelance architect. He had a home office, and when he worked on a plan for an apartment block or office building, he would tape down the corners of the large sheets of tracing paper he used.

Having no other frame of reference, when I started drawing comic book pages in my early fan artist days, I did the same. But it didnít last long. One day, confronted with a particularly challenging upside down shot, I untaped the corners and rotated the page. When the wrath of God did not fall upon me, I realized it was okay to do so.

So, yeah, I rotate the pages to whatever angles I need.

I gotta think that Spider-Man is one character that's consistently fun to script!
