This holiday season, all my dreams are coming true when it comes to the X-Men. Coming off the excitingly successful Regenesis relaunch of sorts, the action seems to be non-stop across all the X-Men books. Take Uncanny X-Men #3 for example. Not only has writer Kieron Gillen and artist Carlos Pacheco given us a wonderfully classic X-Men Vs. Mr. Sinister (with all the fantastically eccentric Victorian charm), but they’ve also added the Celestials to the mix.
You can’t deny the classic design and epic threat that Celestials pose, and I have to admit that Pacheco is bringing it with this story arc. Take a look at these preview pages from Uncanny X-Men #3 below if you don’t believe me. I have to admit, after reading Uncanny X-Men #1, I didn’t know where Gillen was taking us with this story, but once I saw Sinister in front of a carousel in San Francisco, I was on board. The Celestials are just icing on the cake after that as far as I’m concerned.
Just in time for the holidays, Uncanny X-Men #3 goes on sale on December 21, 2011 and is the perfect stocking stuffer for your favorite mutant fan, with a cover price of $3.99
