Old School Cool: Preview The New Mutants War Child #1 By Claremont & Sienkiewicz
by Olly MacNamee
This is a book that really hits all the buttons for comic book fans of a certain vintage. The return of Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz to The New Mutants with The New Mutants: War Child #1 taking a look back at a never-before-told story set in the era of the original series. Here’s a preview of this week’s issue and I am immediately transported back to another age. Definitely picking this one up! And, with variants covers from New Mutant alumni Bob Mcleod and new kid/mutant on the block, Martin Simmonds, who’s own style certainly complements that of Sienkiewicz.
Don’t miss this momentous event as legendary creators Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz reunite with Magik, Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Cypher, Mirage, Karma, and Sunspot to share this never before told story of the New Mutants’ past! When Warlock experiences a nightmare, he begins going haywire, and it’s up to his friends to save him! But as Warlock grows more frenzied, they should be worrying about being able to save themselves…and doubly so when Magik’s inner demon, Darkchylde, threatens to break free! Also, a special guest appearance by none other than Kitty Pryde!
