Seems Marvel Comics is really milking Old Man Logan to the fullest… what’s one more comic, I guess. This could be due to the huge success of Fox Studios’ LOGAN, which just shows Marvel has the right idea on Marketing. Of course, the king of comics, writer Charles Soule (Death of Wolverine, Inhumans vs. X-Men), will be riding out on the first story arc of this title. Below is some info and cover of the comic:
Old Man Logan, Archangel, Mystique, Rogue, Gambit, Bishop, Psylocke and Fantomex. Together, they are the Astonishing X-Men. But what brings this eclectic collection of heroes together? A familiar menace has once again reared its ugly head – reborn, renewed and resurrected. To defeat one of their greatest foes and rescue one of their own, the X-Men’s greatest will assemble for a mission that will take them places you never thought they’d go!
“The book is designed to tell a very focused, specific story, with a few cool main villains,” says series writer Charles Soule. “I’m writing it like a puzzle box, with new layers and reveals opening up every issue. So, you’ll never know exactly where it’s going to go next – but the structure is built in such a way that almost anything from the long, incredible history of the X-Men can pop up. If you think about these characters, they’ve been present or involved for virtually every major era of X history, all the big events. That’ll play a role in a big way.”
As deadly forces await, will the Astonishing X-Men’s first mission also be their last? Find out this summer, in the blockbuster ASTONISHING X-MEN #1!
