Brevoort Talks "Captain America's" Shocking, Controversial Twist
COMIC LEGEND: Joe Madureira’s final issue of Uncanny X-Men was partially drawn by another artist because some of Madureira’s pages were lost by FedEx.
Mixed into Joe Madureira’s final issue of Uncanny X-Men…
Were a few pages drawn by Andy Smith instead…
This has led to a rumor over the years (I saw it first on G. Kendall’s Not Blog X, by a commenter there) that Madureira’s pages had been lost by FedEx.
We’ve certainly seen stranger stories over the years, like a whole final issue of a comic book lost in a cab! However, I checked with the editor of the issue, Mark Powers, and he said that the truth was a lot less interesting – Madureira was just late.
Thanks for the info, Mark!
