*Marvel: Not the soon-to-be-released All-New, All-Different X-Men, you understand; that’s different. No, this is the original 1975 ‘reboot’, in Giant-Size X-Men #1 and X-Men #94, in which Len Wein, Chris Claremont and Dave Cockrum bestowed a multinational twist to the established Marvel Mutant franchise, and kicked off a sales blockbuster that thrives and multiplies today. Giant-Size X-Men #1 featured the first ever appearances of Storm, Colossus, Nightcrawler and Thunderbird, and the second full appearance of Wolverine, as they teamed up with Cyclops and with established X-Men allies Banshee and Sunfire in forming a new team to investigate the disappearance of the originals! In issue #94 the story continued, replacing the reprints which had dominated the title since #66, with the departure of all the originals barring Cyclops, leaving the neophyte heroes up against the menace of Count Nefaria. Neither of these were ever distributed in Britain, so their scarcity gains an extra layer here, and copies are vigorously sought-after. Our Giant-Size #1 is VF- at £400; X-Men #94 is a stunning VF at £275.
