Klaus Janson On The X-Men Books And More Marvel Ch-Ch-Changes

Klaus Janson may be best known as the co-creator of The Dark Knight Returns with Frank Miller. Which means that each of his inked original pages for that series could buy a house – if he'd kept them. He worked extensively with Miller on Daredevil, as well as John Romita Jr, and on Thor, World;'s Finest Comics,  Defenders, Battlestar Galactica, Superman, The Flash, Black Panther, Avengers, Dark Knight III and recently wrote and drew a creator-owned series, Strange Creatiures. from Image Comics. He has worked on many more comics in a variety of roles, but aside from a stint on Wolverine, he hasn't drawn many mutants for Marvel.
