11 YEARS AGO TODAY

 The first Djurdjevic-rendered Thor.
    This was Marko Djurdjevic's fifteenth cover for Marvel, his fifth for X-MEN: FIRST CLASS. It would be more than two years before Djurdjevic would depict Thor again.
     Two rejected sketchs for this cover are presented in THE MARVEL ART OF MARKO DJURDJEVIC. They show how much finessing goes into a layout. The abstract graphic design elements are not represented in either of the sketches. Both the preliminaries and the published cover have Thor in the background and one or two X-Men in the foreground.
