Happy New Year! It’s 2023 and with a new year comes New X-Men as Chris and Chandler explore Grant Morrison’s iconic relaunch of the X-Men in 2001. Considered one of the best new storylines of the history of X-Men comics, Grant Morrison introduced us to Cassandra Nova with a paired down team of Cyclops, Wolverine, Jean, Emma, and Beast. What a great time to revisit this series in the new year!
