COVERS#1 Days of futures past

Anyone with a passing interest in comic books would probably be able to tell you that the cover of X-Men #141: Days of futures past, by John Byrne, is one of the most iconic covers ever created in the medium. It is to Comic books what the Jaws poster is to movies. Subsequently it is the most homaged/copied covers in the history of comic books.
I remember buying it from the original Forbidden Planet in London's West end, and thy story contained inside (and the following issue) is one of the touchstones in the development of the mainstream comic book.
