In Retroactive I’ll take you on a visual comic cover tour of the past covering all the covers for a particular series. Each entry will cover an entire year and I’ll always have one comic from DC and one comic from Marvel. At the end of each edition of Retroactive I’ll select my overall favourite cover for that year for each series. Last time on Retroactive we covered The Flash 1966 and Uncanny X-Men 1970. If you need a refresher, just click HERE. This edition however is going to be a little bit different. In the early part of the 1970s, Uncanny X-Men was essentially cancelled only to be resurrected at the end of that same year. When it did come back it came back as reprints of the previously published material. For these “new” issues there was a mixture of reused covers (usually being recoloured from the originals) and some entirely new ones. This Special Edition aims to look at those entirely new covers that saw release from 1970-1975.
