A classic Marvel Comics tradition is coming back with “ResurrXion” – no, we’re not talking about the X-Men’s legendary softball games – with special “ResurrXion” corner box art gracing the covers of every title in the line, as announced via CBR.
The revival comes with a twist – rather than being traditional square corner boxes, the art, by Leonard Kirk and Michael Garland, will nestle in the corner of each title’s “X” logo.
Older fans will remember corner boxes that often featured special art that highlighted characters specific to a title, or the line up of the team found inside. Though Marvel hasn’t used corner boxes for years, they recently revived classic corner box designs as variant covers on a variety of titles.
“ResurrXion” begins in April, and will include X-Men titles X-Men: Blue, X-Men: Gold, Cable, Jean Grey, Iceman, Weapon X, Generation X, and, starting in July, Astonishing X-Men.
