Escapade returns in three issue ‘New Mutants’ story arc October 26th

Shela Sexton reluctantly joins her fellow mutants on Krakoa… Will the New Mutants accept her?

Press Release

Marvel Comics has revealed Charlie Jane Anders and Alberto Alburquerque are taking over New Mutants with New Mutants #31 on October 26th. Their three-issue story arc will feature Escapade, a new trans mutant introduced in Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1.

The arc will also feature comic strips drawn by Escapade’s co-creators, cartoonists Ro Stein & Ted Brandt! Further incorporating Escapade into the world of the X-Men, Escapade will join the New Mutants to learn to control her one-of-a-kind “swap” abilities so she can prevent Destiny’s deadly prophecy from coming true…

“I have been such a fan of everything Vita Ayala, Rod Reis et al. have been doing in NEW MUTANTS, so it was a total thrill to bring Escapade, Morgan and Hibbert into their world,” Anders said. “The characters we introduced in MARVEL’S VOICES: PRIDE #1 took on a whole new life when they were hanging around with the New Mutants and the Lost Club, and I’ve been having unconscionable amounts of fun. And as a huge admirer of Alberto Alburquerque’s work on No One’s Rose and other comics, I was psyched to hear that he’d be bringing this tale to life. It’s going to be a wild ride!”

So what’s New Mutants #31 about?

Personally recruited by Emma Frost herself, Shela Sexton reluctantly joins her fellow mutants on Krakoa in the hope that the X-Men can prevent the death of her best friend. But is Emma telling her the whole truth? Can Shela adjust to life on the island? Will the New Mutants accept her? Or is this crash course in Krakoan headed for a deadly pileup?
