Marvel Turns Jim Lee’s Old X-Men Trading Cards Into Variant Covers For July


CBR: To celebrate the upcoming “Astonishing X-Men” series, Marvel Comics is releasing X-Men trading card-style variant covers, featuring the artwork of Jim Lee. For the month of July, you’ll be able to get your hands on updated versions of classic Jim Lee/X- Men artwork.

“Remastered and recolored from the original trading cards, relive this iconic era of the Children of the Atom with a series of eye-popping covers,” an official press release reads. “Originally penciled by legendary X-Men artist Jim Lee with inker Scott Williams, colorists such as Jesus Aburtov, Israel Silva & Chris Sotomayor apply modern coloring techniques to these classic masterpieces!”

Take a look at the Psylocke Variant Cover on the right, which will grace the cover to Peter Parker: The Spectacular Spider-Man #2 next July.

Yes, please. The same comments get repeated here over and over again by the same participants so I'll just state my contrary opinion: the classic Hand costume is awesome, everything else looks watered down.

Well, like it or not that's her iconic outfit.

It has its place, for sure. In the 90s she looked amazing. I still enjoy seeing her wear it here and there, but I also like her most recent outfits as well.

Yeah its part of her history and Jim Lee's designs are awesome.
