Most conventions have a special edition variant of a popular comic book that ties into the comic book convention, and Wizard World is no exception as it just revealed the X-Men Special variant for Wizard World San Antonio Comic Con.
The 100th Anniversary X-Men Special #1 is drawn by Jorge Molina, and those attending the convention, August 1-3, 2014 at the Henry B. Gonzalez Convention Center will receive a free copy of the limited-edition book. How limited? Only 3,000 copies will be printed, and it will be given out at registration, so show up early!
“Jorge Molina is the type of artist whose work leaps off the page and grabs readers attention,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing David Gabriel in a prepared statement. “We couldn’t be happier to bring his level of craft to the upcoming 100th Anniversary X-Men special with this exclusive cover for Wizard World San Antonio.”
A native of Mexico, Molina has worked on such iconic comics as “X-Men,” “Captain America,” “Avengers” and “Superman/Batman.” In addition to covers and interiors on numerous Marvel properties, the versatile Molina has done video games, comics, clothing design and product design for companies like UDON, Image, Top Cow, DC Comics, Crystal Dynamics, and Buzz Monkey.
