X-Men #139 cover by John Byrne & Terry Austin. 1980.

The first color image is the published cover. Below it is a fan colored version using John’s coloring notes as seen on the original page and posted above for ease of reading.

I’m not aware if Glynis Wein did the colors or not on the published cover and why they are different from John’s notes. Anyone?
