Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz are reuniting for an all-new New Mutants one-shot, subtitled War Children. First reported by ScreenRant, the September one-shot will be a flashback story going back in Marvel history.
If you recall, Claremont and Sienkiewicz have a history of working together on both Uncanny X-Men and New Mutants, with their “Demon Bear Saga” storyline in particular influencing the upcoming New Mutants film.
Here is the solicitation for September 18’s New Mutants: War Children #1. Look for Marvel’s full September 2019 solicitations later this month on Newsarama.
