Variant cover to “X-Men” #1, Jim Lee, 1991

I previously identified the variant covers for Jim Lee’s first issue as a single four-section fold-out.  That was a mistake.  These were four variant covers for Issue #1 that comprised a larger picture when you placed them side-by-side.

In 1991, this racked up $7 million in revenue from preorder alone, and was entered into the Guinness Book of World Records as the best selling comic book of all time.
