COMICS: Sneak Peek At Brian Michael Bendis And Chris Bachalo's UNCANNY X-MEN Relaunch

It's not the FULL reveal, but artist Chris Bachalo has jumped the gun by confirming that he and Brian Michael Bendis are indeed pairing up for a "Marvel NOW!" Uncanny X-Men series. Hit the jump for a sneak peek and some intriguing details.

Comic Book Resources have spotted the following blog post from Chris Bachalo, confirming that he and writer Brian Michael Bendis will be teaming up next February for a relaunched "Marvel NOW!" series of Uncanny X-Men. As you can see from the image below, the cast will include Cyclops, Magneto and possibly either Emma Frost or Magik (though it's fair to assume that both of them will be a part of the team regardless). Check out the artwork and statement below and then feel free to sound off with your thoughts in the usual place! Stay tuned for the full reveal soon...


Looks like the cats out of the bag. Its me an Bendis on a new launch of the series. This was a tough one as I was really enjoying my time on WX but Brian asked for me to help him launch the new Uncanny and how do you turn down that offer. Launches are tough as there's a lot of ground to cover to get things rolling. Characters are re-imagined, writing styles adjusted to, locations established. Its a tough learning curve that typically takes a few issues to figure out and grow comfortable with. We're still very early into the creative part so hard for me to comment on exactly what to expect. The daring part is that the tone of the book--feels like, its early--will be a little darker. Characters powers have been 'adjusted" as a result of the Phoenix five fall out and I was asked to redesign costumes for the entire cast. Everyone. Plus, as of today, there are two "new" mutants. Its a big jump that I'm sure will turn a few off but, we're betting on, that most will welcome and enjoy. One thing that you can count on is that Brian will always give you something worth reading. He never fails to be interesting. Launch is two issues in February.
