X-STATIX to Return

The Beat:

X-Statix, a mutant superhero team that’s more like a reality TV show cast than a paramilitary unit, will return to Marvel Comics in July, courtesy of its original creative team.

Giant-Sized X-Statix #1 was announced Thursday from writer Peter Milligan, artist Michael Allred, colorist Laura Allred, and letterer Nate Piekos. Allred officially tipped it himself on social media, noting it “had the longest gestation and longest held secret” of any comics project that he’s done. For days (if not weeks), Allred has been noting on Twitter that he’s about to announce two projects that are years in the making, along with a new creator-owned comic.

Great! I love Mike Allred’s stuff, so I’m always glad for more.
