Yup, Those Jim Lee X-Men Covers Are One In A Thousand…

Posted by March 17, 2017 Comment


Bleeding Cool can, indeed, confirm that the Jim Lee variants for X-Men Gold and X-Men Blue, recycling artwork from his X-Men #1 comic with Chris Claremont, are 1:1000 variants. Comic stores will have to order a thousand of each to get one copy of each.


This follows similar retailer variants for both Venom #1, Amazing Spider-Man: Renew Your Vows #1, and Amazing Spider-Man #25 recycling interior art from Todd McFarlane and John Romita Sr –  and yes, the latter was a 1:1000 book for a $9.99 cover price.


And of course, for Marvel, it’s the added benefit of making money off of a man who is now co-publisher of DC Comics. It’s not quite up there with what Todd McFarlane did to him, but it’s certainly a metaphorical kick to the nuts…
