DON'T BE BLUE - THE ORIGINAL X-MEN ARE BACK...
Despite my occasional critiques about 'deficiencies' in
JACK KIRBY's art, I'm a huge fan and think that, when
he was at the top of his game, he was untouchable. (Espe-
cially when inked by someone like WALLY WOOD.) So
I always get a thrill when I see his early MARVEL work
gracing the cover of a contemporary comicbook.
Such a one is X-MEN BLUE #1, the first issue of a
new series about the original X-Men, time-plucked from
the past into the present day. It was okay, but I just love
the above variant cover, even though Jack's drawn The
BEAST with gloves, something he never wore.
If you think this mag might be your cup of tea, it's
now on sale at your local FORBIDDEN PLANET (and
all good comics shops). So race right 'round there at the
earliest opporchancity and grab yourself a copy before
they're all gone. First come, first served.
