Now let’s check out all of the cool variant covers that you will be wanting to add to your collection.
PiercingMetal Thoughts: Before I say anything else let me say “Congratulations to the Uncanny X-Men” for reaching this milestone issue #600; I was reading this title religiously for many, many years and for those of you who might not know, this was originally titled “X-Men” from issues 1-93 and would be relaunched with the now famous “Giant Sized X-Men” #1 which led us into the “All-New Uncanny X-Men” with issue #94 (if you have any of these two comics in your collection you have some nicely valuable books so I hope that you are caring for them). This was a couple of choice members of the original team along with a host of new heroes like Wolverine, Colossus, Storm, Banshee and Nightcrawler and the rest is history. As far as the X-Men mythology is concerned this is the longest running title that Marvel has in its offerings. Great work that was started so very long ago by Stan “The Man” Lee and Jack “King” Kirby. I’m hoping that the finances are there for me to snag as many of these as I can but that all depends on how many of the new first issues I want as well since there are quite a few of them coming out this month which you will see in my next Comics posting. I know that I want the action figure variants since those appeal to my toy collector side and of course the Adam Hughes, Rick Leonardi and Ed McGuinness ones. The latter two because its a great dynamic with the original X-Men and the New X-Men. So what do you readers think about this particular comic book happening and what covers do you find your eye drawing too the most? Are you still reading X-Men at all? Don’t forget there will be two X-Men related films coming in 2016 which although not part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, do still look interesting. Let me know what you think in the comments. See you next time.
