SCAN REQUEST: various X-Men 2nd printing covers

Post by JephYork » Tue Aug 17, 2010 1:56 am

Hi, all. I'm trying to get scans of the covers of various X-Men second printings for an upcoming Marvel project. Can anyone help out?

I need 300dpi .tif files -- and a little border left around the outside of the cover (as in, don't crop right down to the cover edges).

Could anyone possibly scan the following?

[EDIT: Got 'em all!! Thanks to everyone who helped out.]

Please don't PM me, as my inbox is almost full, and your messages might bounce. Please either post here, or e-mail me at jephyork at yahoo.com.

Thanks in advance! :-)

-Jeph!

It was just solicited, so now I can reveal the project I'm talking about:
UNCANNY X-MEN:
OFFICIAL INDEX TO THE 
MARVEL UNIVERSE GN-TPB
Written by VARIOUS
Get the complete history of the X-Men from their earliest appearances all the way up to the present day. This book comes packed with synopses of every issue of Uncanny X-Men—introducing you to the characters, teams, places and equipment that appeared within and providing vital information about all things X! Also includes synopses of Classic X-Men issues only available in this collection. Collecting material from OFFICIAL INDEX TO THE MARVEL UNIVERSE #1-13.
328 PGS./Rated A ...$19.99
ISBN: 978-0-7851-4958-3
The covers listed in my previous post are covers that the Index never originally ran -- since they were before the point (issue #10) where we decided to start including second-printing and newsstand covers. I'd like to include them in the TPB, for completeness' sake. So if anyone owns a scanner and these books -- or owns a scanner and knows a store that has them cheap ;) -- please get in touch! Anyone that helps out will get a Special Thanks in the book's credits.

-Jeph!

Nice! Thanks! By the way, I know it's one of those "clear acetate/second cover" deals, but is it a wraparound cover too?

#275, 307, 317 and 320 are also spoken for now.

I just learned I have the 248 Gold second print. I'll scan it up when I get off work. I'll check the others from the collection I picked up not long ago this evening.

Update* I just checked through the boxes and I don't appear to have any of the others. No.248 will be scanned before the end of the evening.

Okay, I managed to get all the initial scans I requested ... but now I need one more.

Does anyone have the Uncanny X-Men #221 "So Much Fun, Inc. Classic" variant?

Does anyone have the NON-DELUXE versions of Uncanny #318-321?

Uncanny X-Men #53 - "Marvel Comics Presents" mini-comic
Uncanny X-Men #97, 129 - Marvel Legends editions (packaged inside Marvel Legends toys)
Uncanny X-Men #514 - newsstand edition (says "Uncanny X-Men" in big letters instead of "Utopia")
Giant-Size X-Men #1 - Marvel Milestone Edition, with silver-border cover

Thanks!

Jeph! It looks like I have the UX 129 Toy Insert. I also have a reprint of UX 133 from 2002, do you need that as well? The soonest I can scan them is tommorow evening. Let me know.

Don't need #133. I may have someone with a scan of #129, but I won't know until later tonight. Thanks for the offer! Let me keep you posted...

Someone from the Grand Comics Database came through with scans of *everything* except the newsstand version of #514.

Anybody have that one last key to this puzzle?

Marvel found the digital file for this cover. Never mind! :-)
