In late 1993 I was asked to letter the cover blurb for X-Men #30, as you can see, a special event. It’s always fun to have a place to use some decorative calligraphic script, and in this case I thought it worked well with some art deco open letters for the top line and character names. The lettering was done by hand.

The jagged oval burst balloon with a roughened outer edge added some energy to a generally static cover scene, though one with lots of implied movement. I thought it worked well.
