Top Ten Uncanny X-Men Covers: Vol. 1 (Claremont Era)
Recently my Brother-In-Arms Biff Tannen compiled a list of his favorite Daredevil covers. It just so happened that they were some of mine, as well. As much as I liked the artistic works of Messrs Miller, Mazzucchelli, Colan, Buckler,and Romita I was equally taken with the concept of the article. I resolved to steal it.
I’ve decided to tackle the series on with I cut my teeth as a comic book fan: The Uncanny X-Men. Since that particular series ran for over 500 issues, I’ve narrowed the field of candidates down to the issues written by Chris Claremont. Still, it’s a very long run of books with some gorgeous covers to choose from. I hope my selections don’t disappoint.
Well, there you have it. I think we’ve learned something today… we’ve learned that there was no escaping Wolverine on the cover of Uncanny X-Men during the salad days of Marvel Comics. Anyway, you know the score. If I overlooked your favorite, feel free to let me know below.
