A Merry Mutant Christmas: Preview Marvels Epilogue #1 By Busiek And Ross

by Olly MacNamee

This new addition to a fan favourite, Marvels, by the same winning team of Kurt Busiek and Alex Ross, is only 16 pages long – with the rest of this one-off issue padded out with the usual ‘behind the scenes’ stuff –  and so your preview is a sparse two pages plus a cover.

But, it’s still a good enough excuse to post some of that Norman Rockwell inspired artwork Ross has become synonymous with. Enjoy this double-pager and don’t forget to pick up your issue this week from Marvel to complete that collection. Gotta catch ’em all!

An all-new standalone epilogue to the classic Marvels graphic novel written by Kurt Busiek and fully-painted by Alex Ross! A “Marvels” look at the “all-new, all-different” X-Men of the 1970s. In this 16-page story, Alex and Kurt bring Marvel’s world to brilliant, realistic life one last time, as the now-retired Phil Sheldon and his daughters, in Manhattan to see the Christmas lights, find themselves in the middle of a clash between the outsider heroes and the deadly Sentinels, giving them a close-up perspective on the mutant experience. Also featuring a behind-the-scenes look at the making of this special story, and other bonus features.
