Jim Lee first gained popularity as a comic book artist for Marvel Comics working on titles like â€œAlpha Flight,â€ and â€œPunisher: War Journal.â€ Before he helped make X-Men #1 the best- selling comic book of all time, Jim Leeâ€™s artwork from Uncanny X-Men had already inspired a legion of fans. This painting was created for the multiple, interlocking covers of X-MEN #1 (1991 series) which centered on the launch of a second X-Men series. The book featured the return of Xavier and the original X-Men. The first issues were written by long-standing X-Men writer Chris Claremont and drawn and co-plotted by Jim Lee. This book is the highest selling book in comic book history, selling close to 8 million copies. This artwork was created in a limited edition as a gicleÃ© print with archival inks on premium canvas. Each piece of the edition has been numbered and is signed by Jim Lee. The Artistâ€™s Proofs and the Printerâ€™s Proofs are signed by both Jim Lee and Stan Lee

Sometimes described as "digital lithographs", giclees are created using extremely sophisticated computer equipment to create a reproduction virtually indistinguishable from the original.
Most giclees start with an original painting or illustration in oil, watercolour, or charcoal. The original work is scanned and colour corrected under the supervision of the artist before being printed with a extremely high resolution giclee printer. From the French term for "spray of ink", giclee printers lay down millions of microscopic ink droplets with such precision that the images, colours, and subtle nuances of the original piece are reproduced with breathtaking accuracy and beauty.
Giclees are created on high quality acid-free rag paper or on canvas, and are generally done in limited editions of no more than 750 pieces. They are often signed by the artist.
Limited edition giclees are a beautiful addition to any home and any art collection.
