John Proudstar returns after a nearly fifty year “hiatus” in Nyla Rose, Steve Orlando, and David Cutler’s Giant Size X-Men: Thunderbird #1 this May.
The special one-shot brings back one of the original members of the new Uncanny X-Men team created by Len Wein and Dave Cockrum, and he has a lot of catching up to do in the modern world, as well as in the world of mutants and his tribe.
Co-writer Orlando says that he “…couldn’t be prouder to be a part of it! But this book wouldn’t exist without the incredible work of Nyla Rose and David Cutler, who are joining me on this blockbuster to tell a Thunderbird story that’s as raw, real, and riveting as possible. With their invaluable help, we’re taking Thunderbird on a two-fisted quest to reunite with his family and carve out a place for himself in this brave, new, Krakoan era. The world has changed while Thunderbird was away. The threats might’ve gotten more complex, but Thunderbird’s still sure there’s not a problem out there he can’t solve with his own two hands.”
Rose (whose primary source of income comes from her wrestling activities as a part of the All Elite Wrestling roster) is making her comic book writing debut on Giant Size X-Men: Thunderbird #1.
Check out the classic costume cover by Ken Lashley, variant by Charles Valenza, as well as some of Thunderbird’s new costume designs by Cutler below.
Giant Size X-Men: Thunderbird #1 will be available at your local comic book store starting on May 4.
