*Marvel: After a long hiatus in reprint limbo, the X-Men, with a new international line-up, made a spectacular return in Giant-Size X-Men #1, and #94 of the ongoing X-Men title marked the return to all-new stories. Scripter Len Wein handed over to Chris Claremont, and Dave Cockrum’s superb illustrations continued to impress. This issue is notoriously hard to find anywhere, being the first New X-Men in the title, and its scarcity is compounded here in the Old Country by the fact that it wasn’t distributed in the UK at all. (That month, the distributors saw fit to bring in Tomb of Parsnips #47 or somesuch instead…) This copy is an attractive VG/FN, with moderate spine and cover edge wear, but a glossy, unfaded and unmarred cover scene and flexible off-white interior pages. As a bonus, there is an unverified Chris Claremont autograph on the lower splash page margin. VG/FN £175.
