Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You
The green variant of X-Men #1 comes with a 4 page gatefold cover. It opens up to reveal a 4 page spread of the actual art. That’s the special green variant, but there were 4 others.
Starting with the character that the image in my last blog post left out: Magneto.
I stored these things inside of clear plastic bags with cardboard backing, to keep the spines from bending. You can tell the cardboard backing at the top of this image is slightly yellowing. That’s because these things are OOOOOLLLLDD. Real old! 1991.
Here’s another variant of the same comic book. Do you see that symbol of Captain America down at the bottom? This means that this copy was originally sold at a comic book store. If you see barcodes instead, it means that your copy of this comic book was sold from a grocery store. Copies sold at grocery stores carry less value because of many different reasons, (mostly for reasons related to improper handling).
The art was really nice. I think so.
And so when you put them all together, you get this.
I can’t tell you how so many artists who came afterwards, all tried to copy Jim Lee. 1991 and on, and everybody was a clone of Jim Lee, it was kinda revolting! But at least you had your genuine copies of Jim Lee’s art.
