X-Men First Look: Fantomex is getting the ‘Giant-Size’ treatment this May

As revealed on AVClub Rod Reis will be drawing the issue.

Fantomex is getting his due in Jonathan Hickman’s Giant-Size X-Men series this May. The new series is an artist-focused series written in the Marvel style to give the artist more room to work. Revealed exclusively on AVClub.com Hickman will be working with Rod Reis on the title, which is his collaborator on New Mutants currently. The series starts with Giant-Size X-Men: Jean Grey & Emma Frost February 26, 2020, followed by Giant-Size X-Men: Magneto #1 by Ben Oliver in March, and Giant-Size X-Men: Nightcrawler #1 in April with Alan Davis.

In the AVClub article, Rod Reis says they decided on Fantomex because they were “looking for crazy and weird characters that would allow me to play with panel layouts and do crazy stuff.” It’s an interesting choice especially since the first three Giant-Size comics utilize such popular and important X-Men characters.

Check out the full solicitation below for even more info on the upcoming one-shot.

The hit creative team of Jonathan Hickman & Rod Reis (NEW MUTANTS) turn their attention to the covert activities of the Weapon Plus program’s Weapon XIII! A bred killer who chose the life of a gentleman super-thief, Fantomex has always defied expectations… For example, who would expect him to break into the World, the artificial realm of his creation? And then again? And then… again?
