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. (Especially 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 all good comicbook shops. So race right 'round to your nearest one at the earliest opporchancity and grab yourself a copy before they're all gone. First come, first served.
