X-Men: Misfits is finally in book stores! And in comic shops tomorrow!
So far, the advanced word is good!
"At last an Original English Language manga (OEL) that gets it bang on right! And itâ€™s X-Men Misfits. As a diehard X-Men fan (I collected the comics since the early 80s) I was curious but skeptical on how an OEL version would revision it. The story and art surprised and thrilled me. It manages to work in enough details about the various Marvel mutants to please hard core fans while delighting them with the new takes on many, many favorite names."
"Telgemeier and Roman deliver a delightful script that will appeal to old fans while being friendly toward new readers or fans of the X-Men films. The art by Anzu (The Reformed) is over-the-top shojo parody, with lots of screentone and flowers."
I hope you'll give it a shot, and have us much fun reading it as we did making it! Mutant fistbumps to our collaborator, Anzu, and to our editor, Tricia as well as everyone at Del Rey and Marvel!
If you're going to be in the neighborhood, Raina and I will be at the official Book Release Party at Rocketship on Friday, August 28th. I believe there will be cupcakes.
