New Unlettered Pages for Uncanny X-Men # 1 Featuring the Young X-Men in action
As we grow closer and closer to the release date for Uncanny X-Men # 1 Marvel has released four unlettered pages for the book featuring the Young X-Men team in action.
This helps reinforce that cover featuring demonic versions of the characters like Pixie, Rockslide, Armor and Glob Herman. Before that, the unlettered preview pages…
If memory serves me right, these are the Mutant Liberation Front. I forgot the leader’s name but I am sure its these guys.
So going back to the cover…
This could be something that the team will be dealing concurrently with the return of Nate Grey or this could be a byproduct of something that Nate has done in a later issue. Either way, this excites me as an X-Men fan. Hopefully November comes early.
Oh and aside from the four page preview, we also get some final words from the writing team for Uncanny. Pasting it below for you to read.
“To me, UNCANNY X-MEN has always been the book that defined what Super Hero comics can be. It’s the book I learned to read with. It’s the book that helped me understand who I wanted to be. And it’s the book I have always come back to as a fan. These characters have served as icons, heroes, friends, and even family for me and generations of comic book fans. And now I get to bring all the X-Men together to save our world one last time and find out if anyone survives the experience.”
– Matt Rosenberg
“I wish I could say writers don’t love putting characters we love through rough stuff… but I think that would be a bold-faced lie. There’s nothing I like more than making people laugh and fall in love and then really making them feel something and be moved—which sometimes means tragedy—and then making them laugh again. I think we’ve got a great emotional narrative at the heart of this event.”
– Kelly Thompson
“This series is about the X-Men fighting their own legacy. Fighting against a world who fears them, yet a world that might be right. A world that has a reason to fear them. Has a reason to fear what they could become. This is the ultimate story of X-Men legacy come back to bite them in the ass.”
