Claremont + Larroca return to ‘X-Treme X-Men’

X-treme ways are back again.

Chris Claremont and Salvador Larroca will return to their extreme ways with a new X-Treme X-Men miniseries set right after their initial run on the title.

X-Treme X-Men was first published back in 2001 for almost 50 issues, and then returned in 2012 with an Exiles-like story that brought together mutants from around the multiverse. But you don’t have to worry about that second volume, because this one picks up right after the first volume.

“I’m very happy to be teaming up with Chris again to bring back the adventures of the X-Treme X-Men!” Larroca said. “It’s been a long time and I’ve missed this team and this book that I consider a child of mine. I hope fans enjoy what we’re doing with this new run—there’s lots of new histories to tell. This is the book that Chris Claremont fans have been waiting for and I’m proud to once again illustrate his awesome plots. Let’s make this an instant classic!”

Marvel’s ‘Alien’ series will launch in March

Writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson and artist Salvador Larroca team up for a new story featuring those pesky xenomorphs.

After announcing they’d acquired the license to make Alien and Predator comics based on the movie franchises of the same name earlier this year, Marvel has announced that they’ll launch a new Alien comic next March.

Writer Phillip Kennedy Johnson and artist Salvador Larroca will work on the new title.

“Just as a reader and fan, I was as excited as anyone when I heard the franchise was coming to Marvel, and when they asked me to WRITE THE LAUNCH, I was floored. I’ve been training my whole life for this gig without knowing it,” Johnson told Marvel.com. “Ever since seeing Ridley Scott’s Alien at way too young an age, I’ve been OBSESSED with the xenomorph, the single most iconic representation of terror on film.”

Look busy.

At Comic-Con International this weekend, Marvel announced that Doctor Doom will return to his own ongoing series, courtesy of Christopher Cantwell and Salvador Larroca.

What will happen when Doctor Doom is running from the law — and himself?”
