EXCLUSIVE: Alex Ross Goes Old School with “All-New X-Men” #27 Variant

by  in Comic News Comment

Marvel‘s celebrating their 75th anniversary all year long with covers by Alex Ross, and CBR has the exclusive reveal of his variant for May’s “All-New X-Men” #27.

Like the painter’s prior 2014 variants — which include the upcoming new “Daredevil” and “Amazing Spider-Man” #1s — this image pays tribute to Marvel’s history, depicting both the original X-Men and members of the “All-New, All-Different” cast that joined the team in 1975’s “Giant-Size X-Men” #1. Silver Age X-Men is familiar territory for Ross, including famous depictions like his Angel-centric cover of 1994’s “Marvels” #2.

Marvel’s full May 2014 solicitations are set to debut later this week; CBR will exclusively debut more May X-Men covers and solicitations later this afternoon.
