Based on the amount of announcements, news and overall happenings since 1/1, it’s pretty safe to say that this still dawning New Year is off to a fantastic start. Now let’s get into some comic book announcements with this piece of awesome from the folks at Marvel Comics.
The Press Release:
Framed by a brand-new present day X-Men story by the original creative team themselves, Chris Claremont and Brent Anderson, Marvel is proud to re-present the beloved X-Men classic, GOD LOVES, MAN KILLS, in an all-new extended edition this April!
In 1982, writer Chris Claremont was in the midst of his legendary run on UNCANNY X-MEN, changing the comic landscape forever and creating a new standard for super hero stories! A wealth of ideas, Claremont’s brilliance wasn’t contained to the main title alone, and he joined forces with industry giant Brent Anderson in MARVEL GRAPHIC NOVEL #5, a special edition issue titled God Loves, Man Kills. This groundbreaking story saw the X-Men teaming up with their bitter enemy, Magneto, against an adversary threatening mutantkind in the name of God. This past year, Marvel celebrated Chris Claremont’s 50 years of contributions to Marvel Comics, and we are honored to present an all-new edition of one of his landmark stories this April!
