Skottie Young Plays the High-Stakes Game of Footsie with Uncanny X-Men #1 Variant

Skottie Young Plays the High-Stakes Game of Footsie with Uncanny X-Men #1 Variant

Posted by October 19, 2018 Comment

Skottie Young has taken a side in the schism that’s rocked the artistic community, drawing baby feet on his baby X-Men for the Skottie Young Uncanny X-Men #1 variant cover. As we’ve seen with past Uncanny X-Men covers revealed by Marvel, some artists have chosen to take the extra time required to draw feet on their covers, while others seem to have gone to great lengths in positioning characters (and convenient smoke) to avoid drawing feet altogether. It’s an ideological divide that will rock the comics industry to its foundations before it’s over, and nothing will ever be the same again.

Young proudly joins the likes of Cliff ChiangDave Cockrum, Jen BartelElizabeth Torque, Leinil Francis YuCarlos Pacheco, and David Finch in clearly depicting feet on their Uncanny X-Men covers. On the no feet side: David MarquezRob Liefeld (shocker!)John Tyler ChristopherScott WilliamsMarco DjurdjevicJoe QuesadaJim Cheung, and Yu again, who drew multiple covers, some with feet and some without.

Check out the variant and its accompanying press release below.

This November, UNCANNY X-MEN returns with a new ongoing series, bringing together nearly every mutant left on earth in a story that threatens to destroy them. It’s an epic tale of mystery and tragic disappearance, with an adventure so earth-shattering, it could very well be the X-Men’s FINAL mission!

In celebration of the much-anticipated launch of UNCANNY X-MEN #1, Marvel is excited to reveal a new variant cover from superstar artist Skottie Young!

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
