The plot may seem like familiar fare, but X-Men #94 would be the first regular issue of Marvel’s long-running title to feature the new team of Storm, Banshee, Wolverine, Thunderbird, Colossus, Nightcrawler, and founding member Cyclops. These characters would turn the struggling book into one of Marvel’s best-selling series, with their series debut becoming the first highly collectible issue of X-Men in several years. (In an interesting twist, future Marvel superstar Wolverine didn’t even rate getting featured on the cover.)

Although the new characters were introduced in Giant-Size X-Men #1, this is the first issue in the main book's run to feature this new team. The series had previously spent a long stint in reprint purgatory, and was close to cancellation before this issue revived the franchise. These characters remain the future icons most closely associated with the X-Men franchise as the book began to take its rightful place as one of the most important comics of the Bronze Age. Any X-Men fan worth their salt needs to own this landmark book.



This classic comic sits securely at the top of the CGC Census at a striking 9.8, carefully preserved by a wise collector to offer the same impact as when the issue first hit the newsstands in 1975. It's especially impressive to see the Marvel Comics and X-Men logos popping off the page thanks to the bold yellow color strike on this pristine copy. The second cover appearance of the New X-Men team remains incredibly sharp in this iconic Gil Kane and Dave Cockrum illustration.

Artists Information

David Emmett Cockrum was an American comics artist known for his co-creation of the new X-Men characters Nightcrawler, Storm, and Colossus as well as the antiheroine Black Cat. Cockrum was a prolific and inventive costume designer who updated the uniforms of the Legion of Super-Heroes. He did the same for the new X-Men and many of their antagonists in the 1970s and early 1980s.

Gil Kane was a Latvian-born American comics artist whose career spanned the 1940s to the 1990s and virtually every major comics company and character. Kane co-created the modern-day versions of the superheroes Green Lantern and the Atom for DC Comics, and co-created Iron Fist with Roy Thomas for Marvel Comics. He was involved in such major storylines as that of The Amazing Spider-Man #96–98, which, at the behest of the U.S. Department of Health, Education, and Welfare, bucked the then-prevalent Comics Code Authority to depict drug abuse, and ultimately spurred an update of the Code. Kane additionally pioneered an early graphic novel prototype, His Name Is... Savage, in 1968, and a seminal graphic novel, Blackmark, in 1971. In 1997, he was inducted into both the Will Eisner Comic Book Hall of Fame and the Harvey Award Jack Kirby Hall of Fame.

Bob McLeod is an American comic book artist best known for co-creating the New Mutants with writer Chris Claremont. McLeod drew the graphic novel and the first three issues of the New Mutants and inked a number of subsequent issues. He penciled some issues of Star Wars and Spider-Man as well. In 1987, he inked Mike Zeck’s pencils on the Kraven’s Last Hunt storyline in the Spider-Man titles.
