Item DescriptionJust 4 years in from the MARVEL-QUAKE generated by the return of THE X-MEN with writer Chris Claremont, comes this issue less than 9 months after John Byrne took over the artistic reins! The two of them together - aided by inker Terry Austin - set Marveldom on its ear with their creative efforts which are often considered igniting a "golden age" for the title and one of the most legendary collaborations in comic book history!
Issue #117 gives us "Psi War!", in which we find the X-MEN adrift in stormy seas off Cape Horn, but where they are picked up by a Japanese cargo ship just before disaster strikes. PROFESSOR XAVIER recounts an early adventure where he first met STORM as a thief in Cairo, and did battle with the SHADOW KING.
This is a wonderfully fresh and pristine copy with no faults or blemishes that we can see - no tears, creases, stress lines, or pieces missing. Just a bit of printer's ink at the top of the back cover. A true 8.0 VF rating for a 43-year old comic! Overstreet suggests a price of $42.00. We're going to make this issue a bit more affordable for you X-MEN fans at just $35 . . with our always-L•O•W shipping!
