Queen News Of The World - Comic Con Edition + Marvel Print vinyl LP album (LP record) UK QUELPNE691967

“I Loved the original artwork, but this edition with the limited X-Men print gives a different spin to the classic artwork by Frank Kelly Freas. Based on the classic Marvel story called Days Of Future Past,

It deals with a dystopian future where mutants are incarcerated in internment camps. An adult Kate Pryde transfers her mind into her younger self, the present-day Kitty Pryde, who brings the X-Men to prevent a fatal moment in history that triggers anti-mutant hysteria.

Sentinels (giant robots as pictured here) are used to hunt the mutants. It is one of the biggest stories for the X-Men and had a version made into a movie, although a lot was changed to make it more audience friendly.”
