PAUL SMITH’S X-MEN Artist’s Edition Coming in 2024

The fan-fave artist gets his due…

Paul Smith’s relatively brief 1980s run on Marvel’s The Uncanny X-Men is one of the most beloved in the team’s history. Never one to miss an opportunity, IDW editor Scott Dunbier has announced on Facebook recently that Paul Smith’s X-Men Artist’s Edition is due in 2024:

“Next year will be an amazing one for Artist’s Editions, so many exceptionally good books, including Paul Smith’s X-Men,” Scott wrote. “I now have scans of all 10 of Paul’s covers from his extraordinary run on Marvel’s Mutants. Happy Holidays!”

The comment was accompanied by this classic image:

No date or price was mentioned but that’ll come soon enough.

Smith drew X-Men from #165 to #175, with the exception of #171. He also drew the not-always-merry mutants at other times. Besides what Dunbier mentioned, we’ll have to see what makes it into this volume.

  1. This is great news. Smith’s work is really going to pop in black and white. If anybody with a say is listening, please include the Amazing Heroes cover he did.

  2. My favorite X-Men artist! X-Men #173 is what started me collecting comics.

    • No kidding? Same for me. I was hooked on the The X-Men (and super hero comics) by the time I was done reading the book.
