We have just acquired a copy of one of the most bizarre and wonderful Queen collectables.

This ultra rare 2017 pressing of News of the World was issued as part of the 40th Anniversary of the album release. it is the sixth studio album by the British rock band, and originally released on the 28th October 1977. It includes the singles We Will Rock You and We Are The Champions.

This edition was only available from the 2017 MCM Comic con in London on the 28th October, featuring the classic Frank Kelly Freas artwork on the front with an alternative version on the reverse by Marvel comics artist Mike del Mundo, featuring characters from the X-Men comic books with a Sentinel replacing ‘Frank’ the robot, Wolverine and Kitty Pryde in the hand and Colossus falling, this is also individually numbered on the back.

But that is not all, this also includes an exclusive lithograph art print of the alternative artwork which remains in the original stickered bag. One of the most recent and rarest collectables to be released with so few manufactured, making this a must have for any serious
