“Don’t know why, there’s no sun up in the sky. Stormy weather…”
A special treat for a rainy day. Well it’s overcast in some places anyway. Marvel was kind enough to pass along a sneak peek at November’s All-New X-Men #1 by Brian Michael Bendis and Stuart Immonen. But it’s not the usual comic preview. This time we get a look behind the curtain at an excerpt from Bendis’ original script, followed by the relevant art. Notable in this excerpt, the casual tone of Bendis’ instruction to frequent collaborator and trusted pro, Immonen.
5- Ororo is angry and the sky behind her is dark purple wind and lightning. The wind is insane.
I know, Kitty.
But a fight like this will end in half the mutants dead and half the world hating us.
All we’ve been doing here will have been for nothing.
Now here’s the part where it’s a little like a cooking segment on the Today Show. We set the script in the oven and then, through the magic of comics, we unveil the finished art by Stuart Immonen!
ALL-NEW X-MEN #1
Written by BRIAN MICHAEL BENDIS
Art by STUART IMMONEN
It’s a blast from the past as the original five students of Professor X – Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Iceman, Angel and Beast – are plucked from the past and brought to the present. But what they find, the state that their future selves are in and the state of Xavier’s dream, is far from the future they dreamed of. And how will the X-Men of the present deal with their past coming crashing forward?
