Special Edition X-Men

    (Marvel, 1983)
™ and © Marvel Characters, Inc.

Published in 1983, this deluxe-format comic reprints the first adventure of the “all-new all-different” X-Men, as it appeared in Giant-Size X-Men #1. For fans still saving up to buy an original copy of that key comic, this reprint is an affordable way to see the first appearances of Storm, Colossus and Nightcrawler, as well as other mutants Professor X gathers in his search to find the original X-Men, who have mysteriously disappeared. The Special Edition also features an original 12-page story by long-time X-Men scribe Chris Claremont (Sovereign 7) and artist Dave Cockrum, in which Kitty Pryde reveals the deepest secrets of the X-mansion.
