We're all familiar by now with the awesomeness of Marvel's facsimile edition reprints. And we all know by now what the best part is. No, it's not the timeless classic storytelling that made the Marvel Universe what it is today. No, it's not the chance to read classic comics as they were originally intended but in pristine new condition, exactly like they were originally published in every way except for the price. No, we're talking about the best part of all of it: the ads. And in this preview of X-Men #1 Facsimile Edition, there's just one advertisement, but it's a great one.
Aw yeah, that's the stuff. X-Men #1: Facsimile Edition hits stores on Wednesday. There will be many more ads.
