Pic of The Day 07/26
2011 is the 20th anniversary of Chris Claremont and Jim Lee's X-Men (Vol.02) #1, so in celebration Marvel is releasing a recolored edition by colorist Thomas Mason in October. 20 years ago I was 7 years old, and I remember buying the original for $1.50 seeing that it was a new #1. I choose the cover with Wolverine and Cyclops on it, I still have it, a little beat up from hundreds of rereads and being thrown around everywhere before I started becoming a better comic book keeper and collector. I of course latter hunted down the glossier gate-fold cover edition to replace the tattered one that has all the X-Men charging in on Magneto witch is the one being recolored.
