Marvel's September Solicits

Two from me this month...


X-MEN: MANIFEST DESTINY # 1
The Story: Witness the biggest shake-up in X-Men history. With the mansion in Westchester destroyed, the X-Men are moving to San Francisco. But it’s not just a change in the zip code. Come see what the momentous change in status quo means to the X-Men. In every issue of MANIFEST DESTINY Mike Carey (X-MEN, ENDANGERED SPECIES) brings you an installment of a story featuring one the first X-Men—Iceman. Also in this first issue are stories by C.B. Cebulski (X-MEN:DIVIDED WE STAND, LONERS) and Skottie Young (X-MEN:DIVIDED WE STAND, NEW X-MEN).
Rated T+ …$2.99



X-MEN: RETURN OF MAGIK # 1
The Story: At long last, Magik is returning to the Marvel Universe! But in what form will she return, and to whom will she owe her allegiance? In a touching tale of death and acceptance originally presented in X-MEN UNLIMITED #13, the X-Man Colossus continues to mourn the loss of his beloved sister, the telepathic mutant mystic known as Magik. Meanwhile, in a story from NEW X-MEN #37, Magik’s origin is explored — and her former master, the demon-lord Belasco returns! Fighting his way through hostile terrain and vicious demon hordes, Belasco will stop at nothing to wrest control of Limbo. But the evil sorceress standing in his way bears a striking resemblance to his former protégé. And finally, from X-MEN: DIVIDED WE STAND #2, Magik has indeed returned — but she’s trapped in Limbo, a slave to Belasco! Illyana yearns for her freedom and family, but she must find the lost pieces of her soul, the bloodstones, if she is to escape and defeat Belasco once and for all!

Man Olivier is go awesome. I first saw his work way back in the Avengers during that red plague thing. He's just gotten so much better with every piece of work he does. Yeesh.

I've recently became a fan of Illyana Rasputin aka Magik and as a fan of anime/manga, I thought it would be cool if she was bought into an anime/manga medium but then again, I don't know; Illyana's dual nature/personality is considered unique to me in a comic book medium since it hasn't been done often but in the anime/manga world, the whole dual nature/personality thing has been already done in anime/manga so I don't know if it would hold it's uniqueness, but still, Illyana's cool!
