Synopses & Reviews
Mutants, mayhem and Morrison — a new era for the X-Men begins here!
An army of Sentinels has obliterated the mutant nation of Genosha. The sadistic Cassandra Nova has blown Professor X's cover, exposing him as a mutant to the world. The Beast is in intensive care, Cyclops is lost in space, Jean Grey is slowly dying of a mysterious mutant virus, and Wolverine is hopelessly overmatched. The only two members left to defend the X-Men from alien invasion are Emma Frost, recently the mutant heroes' sworn enemy, and Xorn, a powerful healer imprisoned underground for the last two decades. It's been a very bad year for the X-Men, and it's all about to get much, much worse — all courtesy of new writer Grant Morrison.
Gone are the gaudy spandex super-hero costumes — replaced by slick, black leather and an attitude to match. With a stripped-down roster and a cinematic story line, Morrison catapults the X-Men into the 21st century with style and innovation.
This deluxe hardcover volume collects the New X-Men materials found in New X-Men Vol. 1: E is for Extinction and New X-Men Vol. 2: Imperial — plus character sketches, story excerpts, scripts and other behind-the-scenes bonus material.
Collecting the 2002 Eisner Award-nominated New X-Men #114-126, plus the New X-Men 2001 Annual.
About the Author
Grant Morrison has been hailed as one of the industry's most innovative writers for more than a decade. He first earned critical praise for the Batman graphic nocel Arkham Asylum, which still stands as the highest-selling hardcover comic book of all time. His subsequent work for DC Comics revamping JLA instantly propelled the series to bestseller status. By 1997, Morrison had become the first comic-book writer ever to be recognized as one of Entertainment Weekly's top 100 creative professionals.
