The latest New Mutants Epic Collection captures the beginning of a new era for Marvel Comics, mutants, and artist’s rights and compensation.
The X-Men, X-Factor, and the New Mutants fight a devastating war on three fronts in 1988’s Fall of the Mutants Omnibus.
Besides the lead-up to “Inferno”, the reprinted omnibus also contains all of the mutant-led installments in Marvel’s 1988 Annual crossover, “The Evolutionary War”, as well as appearances by the Brood, various stooges from Genosha, Apocalypse’s Celestial ship, and Infectia.
Rob Liefeld will return to his 1991 New Mutants spin-off, X-Force, in November to celebrate the creation of Cable’s team of militant mutants.
The collection presents work by writers Louise Simonson, Chris Claremont, Mark Gruenwald and artists Bret Blevins, June Brigman, and Bo Hampton.
Even in odd times, a win is a win, and the long-delayed New Mutants was tops at the box office with an estimated $7 million in ticket sales.
