Marvel Reprints Facsimile Editions of Pivotal X-Men Issues in July, Ads and All

Posted by April 18, 2019 Comment

Marvel has recently announced plans to release facsimile editions of comics such as Howard the Duck #1 and Star Wars #50, amongst other classic comics, and now the X-Men are getting the facsimile edition treatment in July to coincide with Jonathan Hickman’s X-Men reboot. Marvel will reprint not one but four classic comics: Giant-Size X-Men #1, New Mutants #98, X-Men #1, and X-Men #137. Each of the comics will be a complete reproduction of the way it was originally released, including with the original ads. Unfortunately, the only thing that’s changed is the cover price, with the over-sized Giant-Size X-Men and X-Men #132 selling for $4.99 and the other two going for $3.99.

Check out the solicits below.

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.
