Marvel did a reprint of good old X-Men #1, but with the four separate covers as one complete wrap-around. It’s been re-colored as well, and on high-quality paper. Nice treat. We’re still looking for a frame that fits this bad boy so we can completely nerd out.

Yes, we found a copy in our top-secret 50-cent bin, and took the staples out and everything before taping it to the office wall. Maybe you don’t want to obsess that hard, but you can view the magic right here and at least right-click to make it your desktop for the day. The inside cover is a second poster, and Jim Lee drew a number of additional two-page spreads for the interior. The coolest one is the one with all the villains.
