Remastered Jim Lee Art to Grace X-Men Blue, Gold Variant Covers


Marvel Comics has announced that as part of the celebration of the launches of "X-Men Gold" and "X-Men Blue," the publisher will offer special variants featuring remastered X-Men art by Jim Lee.

"Few artists are as synonymous with the X-Men, and specifically the Blue & Gold era of the X-Men quite like Jim Lee," Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel said in a statement. "We wanted to do something extra special to commemorate these two new titles, and we’re excited to bring Jim’s unique vision of Marvel’s merry mutants back to the fans for these two remastered variant covers!"

Marvel recently offered a similarly remastered cover for "Venom" #1, featuring the work of Todd McFarlane, one of the villain's co-creators.

Marvel also noted that the Jim Lee covers were previously solicited as being by David Marquez and David Lopez; order placed for those covers will be filled by the Lee-illustrated variants.
