Your First Look at UNCANNY X-MEN #531

November 23rd, 2010 Comments off

Marvel is pleased to present your first look at Uncanny X-Men #531 featuring the debut of rising star Kieron Gillen as co-writer with Eisner Award – winning writer Matt Fraction, as they team with superstar artist Greg Land! The X-Men have fought tooth and claw to defend Utopia from invaders and now they’d do anything to get off it! An unexplained illness has broken out, depowering every mutant it infects and riddling them with horrific side effects. Wolverine? Dying of adamantium poisoning. Rockslide? Soon to be rubble. But with quarantine now in full effect, will the X-Club be able to discover the cause without help from the mainland? And just who was the harbinger of this mysterious malady? Beware because, this December, mutantkind becomes all the more endangered, only in Uncanny X-Men #531!

Red-Hot Writer Kieron Gillen Joins Matt Fraction On UNCANNY X-MEN

September 13th, 2010 Comments off

Marvel is proud to announce that newly-exclusive writer Kieron Gillen (Thor, Generation Hope) will join Eisner-winning, superstar writer Matt Fraction as co-writer on Uncanny X-Men! Beginning with Uncanny X-Men #531, Fraction and Gillen pit the X-Men against what may be their greatest threat yet—the loss of their powers at the hands of the Sublime Corporation, as the malevolent force puts into action its master plan!

“For the last thirty years, Uncanny X-Men has been superhero comics’ truest reflection of the age. That’s what I have to live up to and take it into the future, trying to write the definitive twenty-teen take on the X-Men,” explained Gillen. “Any less is underselling what the book deserves. Co-writing with Matt seems a worryingly natural development, as we were friends, then were working together creating the five lights for Generation Hope. The exclusive is the proverbial gravy. In the words of Ms. Knowles:’ They liked it. They put a ring on it.’”

Fraction added, “As a writer? This feels like Kieron and I have already been working on the book for several months anyway, what with the ‘Five Lights’ story and cueing up what he needed for Generation Hope, so this is a perfectly natural extension of that. As a reader? There’s literally no one else in the world I want to read writing X-Men more than Kieron. He’s great. He’s dangerously great. And he’s dying… Dying TO ENTERTAIN YOU.”

A bold new era for the X-Men begins in December as Matt Fraction and Kieron Gillen join forces in Uncanny X-Men #531!

Don’t Miss Out On CASANOVA, The Most Mind-Blowing Book Of The Century!

August 20th, 2010 Comments off

It’s the sold-out book everyone’s talking about, the series every critic is lauding, and the most mind-bending comic of the century—it’s Casanova! Eisner Award-winners Matt Fraction, Gabriel Bá and Fábio Moon are the masterminds behind Casanova and if you’ve missed out on a single issue of the series, now’s your chance to get caught up as Casanova #3 hits stores alongside new printings of Casanova #1 and Casanova #2.

Chronicling the mad adventures of everyone’s favorite terminally directionless, morally-unhinged secret operative, Casanova #3 finds the world bracing itself for a real-life miracle man in the form of a Buddha-imitating street magician…and Casanova Quinn swoops in and snatches the would be savior!

Here’s what the critics have to say about Casanova:

“One of the greatest and strangest comic books of the last decade…” – GQ.com

“Matt Fraction’s agile blending of hyper-dense plot and substantial characters, concepts of sexuality and identity, robots and metaphysics makes Casanova that rare comic that can use genre conventions in new and exciting ways. It crosses genre boundaries and rises above any perceived limitations. In Casanova style is not substance, substance is the new style, and what a beautiful style it is: human, thrilling, transcendent.”—Timothy Callahan, ComicBookResources.Com

“It blew my mind so hard that I have never stopped picking up the pieces.” – Laura Hudson, ComicsAlliance.com

“Casanova is a delightfully crazy sci-fi romp and a great addition to the Icon line. Don’t make the mistake of passing it up a second time.” – Jesse Schedeen, IGN.com

“Fraction doesn’t waste a single panel. In fact, he fills his pages with them, but it never feels cluttered or forcibly compressed…And Gabriel Bá handles the script perfectly with his tight, highly detailed artwork.” – Danny Djeljosevic, ComicsBulletin.com

“I am tremendously grateful to Icon for giving me so many reasons to jump into the zany world of Casanova, and will be sticking around to see what happens next. Matt Fraction and Gabriel Bá have created a comic that is supremely energetic and unique…pick Casanova up and give it a look.” – Majin Fu, AintItCoolNews.com

With Casanova’s wicked sister Zephyr in tow on the new mission, will Quinn be able to get the job done without Zephyr stabbing him in the back? Find out in Casanova #3, out this September! Plus, don’t miss your chance to catch up on the whole series in one jaw-dropping sitting when Casanova #1 Second Printing Variant and Casanova #2 Second Printing Variant hit store shelves the same day!

Matt Fraction and Pasqual Ferry Join THOR This September

June 7th, 2010 Comments off

Thor_615_CoverThis September, superstars Matt Fraction, Pasqual Ferry and Matt Hollingsworth take the reins of Thor and begin a thunderous new direction! In Thor #615, following the stunning events of Kieron Gillen’s acclaimed Thor epic, the ruins of Asgard are now a target and a dark, destructive force from another dimension is on its way to ravage all nine realms—including Earth. Only the mighty Thor can stand in their way, but, when the dust clears, nothing will ever be the same for the Marvel Universe!

“I can’t WAIT to unleash our Thor on you unsuspecting humans,” said Fraction. “Things were intimidating enough when Pasqual, Matt, and I had to follow up JMS and Olivier– that we’ve got to take up arms after Kieron and company’s stellar stand makes it all the moreso. All we can promise you is that Thor will overflow with colossal and cosmic action, giant space gods smashing each other in the faces with hammers, and all of the earth trembling in the balance. In short: everything that has made Thor great.”
