In December 2017, Marvel kicked off the Phoenix Resurrection mini series with numerous covers and the predictable high ratio recycled art variants featured here.

Below are 9 other covers released at the end of 2017 (further prints and variants would follow in 2018):

The art for the 1:1,000 and 1:2,000 covers was recycled (and remastered) from the splash page of Uncanny X-Men #136 (published in August 1980) with art by John Byrne, which was inked by Terry Austin and colored by Glynis Wein:

In late February 2018 (a couple of months since the comic went on sale), the CGC registry had 5 "Remastered Editions" and 4 "Remastered Sketch Editions" gradings recorded in their registry.

Both of these rare recycled John Byrne art variants are demanding high prices with some sellers asking for over $1,000 for a 9.8 graded 1:2000 copy at the end of February 2018.
