To celebrate Timely’s 70th Anniversary, Marvel released variant covers in the same vein of their November 1986 Marvel 25th Anniversary covers. These were released August 2009.
Timely being the company that will become Marvel, but it is still an odd thing to celebrate, as they should have waited five more years to do the 75th Anniversary, an anniversary people actually celebrate.d
Border done by Jim Cheung. Unfortunately, Kitty didn’t make the border to this one, so she is only on the 25th Anniversary and the Women of Marvel variants.
I wish I owned any of these but I do own this :
Marvel 70th Anniversary Frame Art Collection, that contains all of the variants as single page art pieces, which I would buy more of these Variant Collections if they made them.
My wishlist contains :
New Mutants Volume Three Issue 4, with Magik
Wolverine First Class 18, with Kitty and Lockheed
That’s what happens when Kitty doesn’t make the border, my desire of them gets cut way down.
