It’s a duo of Krakoan delights next week with two Mutant centric titles hitting shelves. Kurt continues to seek a new way in the second issue of WAY OF X while Vampires continue to be a pain in Logan’s neck in WOLVERINE!
Marvel has also revealed previews from more HELLFIRE GALA issues including EXCALIBUR #21 and X-MEN #21 which both come out the week of June 9th. We have included those here in case you missed them earlier this week. It’s interesting to note that X-MEN #21 will feature not one but THREE artists as Hickman teams up with fan favorite Russell Dauterman, the talented Lukas Werneck as well as his long time collaborator from EAST OF WEST Nick Dragotta for this issue. A personal bit of speculation on my part is that perhaps Dragotta will be the artist on Hickman’s as yet unannounced X-Book which is coming out in September as Werneck is already slated for THE TRIAL OF MAGNETO. But enough idle speculation here’s the previews as well as the official solicit texts:
WAY OF X #2
A VILLAIN REVEALED!
• The dark force hiding within Krakoa begins to show its true form.
• The answers are hidden…WITHIN THE MINDSCAPE. Kurt’s – and…others.
• One of the most dangerous mutants is reborn!
