After the surprising reveal that seminal ’90s cartoon X-Men: The Animated Series was getting a revival throughout Disney+ Day, it most likely gained’t come as an entire shock that immediately Marvel has announced a brand new X-Men ’92: House of XCII 5-issue restricted sequence this April from author Steve Foxe and artist Salva Espin. No colorists or letterers had been named for the restricted sequence. David Baldeón supplies the duvet for the primary difficulty.
This isn’t the primary time, the writer has delved into the world of X-Men: TAS. During the Secret Wars occasion, Marvel debuted the X-Men ’92 tie-in sequence which led to a short-lived ongoing sequence.
What distinguishes House of XCII from the earlier X-Men ’92 sequence is that it goals to include the present Krakoan period of the X-Men. Here’s how Marvel describes the restricted sequence:
Mutantkind is taking an enormous leap ahead by founding their very own nation on the island of Krakoa, guided by Professor X, Magneto, and a mysterious long-lived lady who is aware of greater than she ought to… But this gained’t be the story you recognize. Expect the surprising because the motion, secrets and techniques, and excessive stakes drama that made HOUSE OF X such a masterpiece are shaken up in a completely new method!
In the official press release, Foxe described his love for the X-Men and his pleasure about this challenge:
“One of my earliest memories is of buying a Garrison Kane action figure, complete with ‘snap-back living hand,’ so to say that the ‘90s X-Men comics had a big impact on my development is an understatement. Getting the opportunity to pay tribute to such an important era in mutant history 30 years later—and to remix the franchise-redefining work currently being done by creators like Jonathan Hickman, Tini Howard, and Gerry Duggan—is the definition of a “dream gig,” particularly with a few of the WILD deviations we’re taking from the supply materials. If I died tomorrow, I’d be comfortable…however please resurrect me ASAP on Krakoa.”
Likewise, Espin shared his love for each the X-Men comics and animated sequence:
“I started collecting comics with the x-men in the nineties. The character designs of this era have always been the most attractive and powerful to me, “I live in Spain so in the 90s, Marvel comics arrived a year or a couple of years later than their publication in the US. Not so with TV series. So just a few weeks after discovering Jim Lee’s incredible cover for X-men # 1, I was once again amazed to discover that the X-Men Animated Series was going to begin airing on Spanish televisions. Those comics and that TV series made my imagination fly and very soon I began to make illustrations and mini comics as a fan that I shared with my schoolmates. These were the first drawings that encouraged me to pursue the dream of becoming a comic artist. With this book, we intend to pay tribute to that powerful era that was the 90s. The moment when super heroes looked better than ever with colorful tight-fitting spandex.”
Look for X-Men ’92: House of XCII #1 to reach in shops on April 6, 2022.
