Marvel and Abrams Books Celebrate Jim Lee’s ‘X-Men’ Trading Cards with New Retrospective

Abrams Books and Marvel will celebrate the 30th anniversary of artist Jim Lee’s 1992 The Uncanny X-Men trading card set with a digest-size book featuring all of the artwork from the front and back of each card.

The Uncanny X-Men Trading Cards: The Complete Series collects images of all 105 trading cards (including the bonus Danger Room puzzle chase cards) and the bios, stats, and trivia for each hero and villain found on the back of each original card. 

The Uncanny X-Men Trading Cards: The Complete Series will also contain interviews (conducted by writer and set editor Bob Budiansky) with the Marvel staff who designed and created the popular card set and a foreword by X-Men: Grand Designs author Ed Piskor.

Look for the “x-cellent” book in comic shops and bookstores on July 5.
