EXCLUSIVE Marvel Preview: X-Cellent #1

There’s a new mutant team that will live harder, love harder, fight harder, and die harder! Meet…THE X-CELLENT!

The much-anticipated series X-Cellent is coming to your comic book shop in February and courtesy of Marvel Comics we have your first look at the series. Originally teased for 2020 release, Peter Milligan, Laura Allred, and Michael Allred’s X-Cellent has been set with a new release date of February 2, 2022.

Their long-awaited return to X-Statix begins in X-Cellent #1, which will feature a brand-new team of rivals that will take this one-of-a-kind series to a fresh and exciting new future. Joining them on letters is Nate Piekos of Blambot studios.

Listen to the latest episode of our weekly comics podcast!

“I’m thoroughly X-Statix to be working with Mike and Laura Allred again,” Milligan said back in October. “And it’s been truly X-CELLENT to discover that we’ve lost none of our alchemical fizz in conjuring up this new comic, this new title, this new beginning: The X-CELLENT!”

“The ol’ gang is back together again! Working with Peter Milligan is always a party,” Michael Allred added. “The future is looking brighter for 2022 as we get to show the world how we’ve been playing with our X-Statix Marvel mutants and their new adversaries, THE X-CELLENT! LOVE these characters! Everyone come play with us!”

Read the preview below.

They were loved by their adoring fans. They were reviled by the harsh press. They lived, they loved, they fought and they died…a lot — all for the sake of fame. They were the X-Statix, a team of mutant celebrities fighting for a brighter world and an even brighter spotlight! But they’re old news now, because there’s a new mutant team that will live harder, love harder, fight harder and die a whole lot harder than those has-beens! Meet…THE X-CELLENT!
