TRIPLE 'X' MARKS THE SPOT (THE DIFFERENCE)...
Okay, I might be over-egging the pudding here, but once
I'm on a roll I just can't stop myself. (Roll & egg pudding any-
one?) This is the 3rd X-MEN cover I've now shown that differs
from the published version. Above is as JACK KIRBY drew it,
below is as it saw print after STAN LEE had sanctioned a couple
of changes. Personally, I'm not convinced that the redrawn hand
is an improvement as, though it's more realistic, the fingers are
smaller than on the other one, making them mismatched. The
altered mouth makes KA-ZAR look less chinless, but I could
have lived with the original (which is the one I first saw
on U.K. comic FANTASTIC #18 back in 1967).
Got a preference? Reveal all in the comments section.
