The New Mutants get another Epic Collection edition this summer, comprised of the middle part of the original series that began in 1983.
The New Mutants: Sudden Death collects issues #55-70 and Annual #4 (from 1987 and 1988) and contains a host of odd mutant stories such as the young team’s encounter with Bird-Brain and a visit to the place of his creation, more battles with the rival Hellions team and Freedom Force (formerly known as The Brotherhood of Evil Mutants), a space adventure, and a death in the family.
The collection presents work by writers Louise Simonson, Chris Claremont, Mark Gruenwald and artists Bret Blevins, June Brigman, and Bo Hampton.
The New Mutants: Sudden Death Epic Collection will be available in comic shops on August 4 and the 472 page volume will retail for $39.99.
