"X-Men" 60th Anniversary

Illustrator Alex Ross has created a new connecting variant comic book cover to celebrate Marvel Comics' "X-Men" 60th anniversary, paying homage to artist 
Jim Lee's iconic "X-Men" #1 cover from 1991:

"With the 'X-Men' piece, I didn't originally make the design. I copied an existing classic cover design that everybody would know and connect to", said Ross about the cover.

"The 'X-Men' piece is showing an accentuation of the action, where it's a split-second difference later." 

"Wolverine is completing a full attack swipe and everybody is attacking harder. I added in the bit with lightning coming from 'Storm', which would be a split second of movement."
