Giant Size X-Men #1

Back from vacation and ready to bring you another set of super cover swipes! The book I’m going to highlight today is a grail book of mine. Growing up, the Uncanny X-Men was one series I bought every month no matter what. I loved how each character’s mutant powers were utilized in a team setting. Even if I picked up a book from earlier in the series, there was always a new character I was introduced to who had some interesting mutant ability I hadn’t seen before. Giant Size X-Men 1 is the introduction of the new X-Men team which were featured in Uncanny X-Men from that issue forward. There have been tons of swipes of this issue’s cover…please see below for some examples!

I have this issue but haven’t read it yet.  Looks to me like the New Mutants are breaking through the X-Babies, though I’m not sure who the guy in the cape is?

What better way to introduce a story in which the new X-Men team didn’t exist that with a cover depicting how that team was introduced?  I think I just confused myself

Image takes its stab at this cover.  The lady in purple is the perfect example of why an ugly boy like me liked comics other than the “articles” 😉
