Jen Bartel will be lending her pencil to the first of the sure-to-be onslaught of variant covers for Marvel’s upcoming Uncanny X-Men #1.
Uncanny X-Men is back. For years now, we’ve had a stable of Marvel comics that’ve lacked the flagship X-Men book. Sure we had Astonishing, as well as the Blue and Gold (and Red… I guess) books, but not having a book branded with “Uncanny” just seems wrong. Well, that’s all in the rear view as of this November.
This November, UNCANNY X-MEN returns with a new ongoing series, bringing together nearly every mutant left on earth in a story that threatens to destroy them. It’s an epic tale of mystery and tragic disappearance, with an adventure so earth-shattering, it could very well be the X-Men’s FINAL mission!
Well… I don’t think there’s much of a chance that this is the X-Men’s final mission. Not only is the best-loved x-book back, but there have been rumors as of late that there’s a major crossover event on the horizon, in the style of classic x-events. That’s to say big and explosive.
While that’s still all rumored, Uncanny X-Men #1 is here now, or it will be soon. And of course, being a huge release, Marvel will have some variant covers on hand. The first is from artist Jen Bartel, and as you can see stars some of the biggest X-women from the merry mutant pantheon.
So have a look at that, and I’m sure well be back some time very soon with a variant cover roundup for you to peruse as well.
