Uncanny X-men #500 Sketch Covers

Uncanny X-Men #500 (Dodson Cover)
Uncanny X-Men #500.  That's quite a milestone.  I'm so glad they keep the numbering going.  It's so lame when series are re-launched with a new #1.  The companies should have some pride in their history.  Let the world know exactly how long a series has been able to last. 

So with this issue, you're gonna have a lot of covers to choose from.  These are both variants but they look pretty sweet.


Uncanny X-Men #500 Sketch Variant Covers Revealed!




Marvel is proud to unveil the sketch variant covers, from superstar artists Michael Turner and Terry Dodson, to the historic Uncanny X-Men #500! Featuring the debut of the series’ new writing team, Eisner-winner Ed Brubaker and Eisner-nominee Matt Fraction, and the series’ superstar art team, Greg Land and Dodson, this is the issue that no X-Fan can afford to miss as X-Men: Manifest Destiny begins! This extra-sized anniversary issue kicks off with a longer lead story as the X-Men adjust to their new home in San Francisco, but soon find a familiar face threatening their new beginning! How do the Sentinels, Magneto and Master Mold tie into all this? Find out in Uncanny X-Men #500!

Awesome covers! I prefer the top one; it's not as busy as the sketch.

This may be a good chance to start to pick up X-Men on a regular basis.

Since she has a star on her leg it's probably Dazzler.
