Back in September of 1982 two of the hottest comic series on the planet were Marvel’s Uncanny X-Men and DC’s The New Teen Titans, so it makes sense that Marvel and DC would team up to do a crossover series. That’s right, I’m going back to September 1982 to celebrate the release of the one-shot The Uncanny X-Men and The New Teen Titans.
If you’ve ever been a fan of the X-Men in any way shape or form, This Week in Comic Book History is my look into the important beginning that made the X-Men what they are today. August 1975 marked the release of Uncanny X-Men #94 from Marvel Comics, the beginning of Chris Claremont’s run as writer on the series.
As part of the X-Men 50th anniversary, Marvel is pulling out all the stops in the newly-solicited one-shot X-Men: Gold #1.
This Week in Comic Book History for the week of May 21, 2013 starts off the X-event called “Revolution” that was all over the X-Men books back in May, 2000.
This week in Comic Book History is another themed edition. What theme you may ask? Well, this time it’s X-Men week here. I spotlight a certain selection of special events that happened in the month of March. I feel it’s a good way to wrap up the month, and showing a few fun facts involving the X-Men at the same time. I had fun with the Batman themed one last week, and this is a fitting follow up.
This year comic book fans will be saturated with a bunch of superhero films, and one that many are anticipating with much delight and a little nervousness - as it can’t possibly be as bad as that previous film which shall remain nameless - The Wolverine. Opening July 26th, the film is directed by James Mangold, who has helmed films such as 3:10 to Yuma and Knight and Day. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Mangold discussed the film at great length and gave fans even more details about the film, which will definitely put any nervousness to rest.
