COMICS: Ed McGuinness' Charity Variant For X-MEN #1 Revealed

Limited Edition Comix and Marvel artist Ed McGuinness have teamed up to produce a stunning Psylocke variant cover for X-Men #1 to benefit UK charity, The Sick Children’s Trust. Hit the jump to check the cover out and to read the press release in full!

UK based comic store, Limited Edition Comix, has produced a variant cover with Marvel Comics in aid of The Sick Children’s Trust, a charity that the store and its customers support.

The X-Men #1 variant cover, due to ship on the 27th May, is drawn by Ed McGuinness and features the X-Men’s stunning Psylocke and will have a print run of only 3500 copies worldwide with all profits going to the Sick Children’s Trust.

Richard Emms, director of Limited Edition Comix in Stevenage, comments on the release of the X-Men #1 variant cover, its connection to the charity and what it means to the store’s customers who have supported the charity too.

“We feel extremely privileged to be able to do something for The Sick Children’s Trust and on this scale. We can’t thank James (Viscardi at Marvel Comics) for all his help putting this together for us and getting Ed (Mcguinness) involved with the cover too. Ed’s cover is simply stunning and any X-fan should have this in their collection.

The Sick Children’s Trust is something that we will support each and every year and so too will our customers, as it is a charity that is very close to all of our hearts. Friends and loyal patrons of the store will know why we support this organization and we hope the whole comic buying world will support it too.

The variant cover will go on sale as from this Friday on our website, eBay and also several big comic book stores in the USA, including Midtown Comics in the coming week or so. The suggested retail price will be around $10 (£5.95) and you can buy as many as you want! We are not limiting these books at all as a sell-out means a ton of cash is going to the charity. We are also happy for comic store owners to contact us about stocking this variant cover too.”

The Sick Children’s Trust provides free, high-quality ‘Home from Home’ accommodation for families whose children are seriously ill in hospital.
