X-Men Day'. Retailers taking part in the festivities, will be able to reward you with free x-kit and variants, as you stop in to pick up your new copy of this week's X-Men #1 - which from the cover features the JLA of mutants, all the big-guns assembled under one of seven variant covers.
Me, I took a little while to get The Uncanny X-Men. The first issue I ever purchased didn't really convey the concept and it seamed like 'just another' super-team. See folks, every issue truly is someone's first!
Enough of the wishful thinking though. In tribute to The X-Men and this X-Men Day, here is one of my favourite group shots of the 'All New, All Different' done by the ever-amazing Dave Cockrum, and its breathtaking homage, by none other than painter Alex Ross.
Alex Ross and X-Men - and here I thought it was last week on IADW that had a theme! That said, what is your best X-Men memory?
