A Year of Cool Comic Book Moments – Day 58

Here is the latest cool comic book moment in our year-long look at one cool comic book moment a day (in no particular order whatsoever)! Here‘s the archive of the moments posted so far!

In honor of our friend, AERose, we continue our special “Moments from Uncanny X-Men” theme week!

We continue with a bit of a tie – I’m torn between two cool moments from Uncanny X-Men #100. Maybe YOU can decide!!


First off, this issue had an awesome cover by Dave Cockrum.

Total classic (and greatly homaged since).

Okay, the first moment comes during the fight between the new X-Men and (what the X-Men think is) the original X-Men.

During the battle, we get the first appearance of…the Fastball Special!!!

Later in the issue, though, we get the great sacrifice of Jean Grey (I love the emotions of Nightcrawler and Scott – Cockrum NAILS the tears on Nightcrawler’s face)….(click to enlarge)…

So, which do you prefer as THE moment from this issue?
