THE X-MEN #59-61: First Appearance of Sauron


Sauron is introduced as a mad, torturing doctor who later turns into a human dinosaur and (spoiler alert) dies at the end.  So is it really a spoiler if this comic came out 40 years ago?  I don’t think so.

Anyway, it’s amazing to compare this run to Roy Thomas’ first run on X-Men, which was terrible.  What a difference having one of the best artists of all time can make.

Creators: Roy Thomas and Neal Adams
