“This Excalibur is a new spin on an old favorite. It touches on the worlds of the fantastic and magic and still is rooted in the modern X-Men continuity of the present,” explains White.
“[Mutants] have the space and the freedom to develop their culture, to learn magic and art, and to make these things that mutantkind has never seen before. And not only do they get to revel in it, the rest of the world has to deal with it,” says Howard.
