Marvel Reveals Every X-Men Themed Jim Lee Trading Card Variant

This July, Marvel Comics’ variant cover theme is a bit of a throwback; throughout the month, the publisher will release a total of 29 variant covers featuring classic Jim Lee artwork. Having previously debuted a portion of the covers fans will discover on stands next month, Marvel has now released every single variant.

The covers will feature images from Lee and inker Scott Williams’ X-Men trading card series, which was released in the mid-’90s. Each piece of art has been re-colored specifically for the variant program by a number of artists, including Jesus Aburtov, Israel Silva and Chris Sotomayor.

This July, mutants will once again assemble in ASTONISHING X-MEN #1, and Marvel is celebrating the occasion with a series of nearly thirty X-MEN TRADING CARD VARIANTS by legendary artist Jim Lee! After debuting a selection of covers earlier this year, Marvel is proud to release the remaining variant covers of the full collection.

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!
