The X-Cellent: X-Statix Returns for More Adventures with Trio of Superstar Creators
Marvel has announced that the X-Statix adventures will continue with the sequel series The X-Cellent. After last year’s series brought together the trio of superstar creators, Peter Milligan, Michael Allred, and Laura Allred, the action continues in 2023 with the new mini-series. X-Statix continues their offbeat adventures and will also become more familiar with the supervillain group known as X-Cellent.
Revisiting the 2000s hit series, the publisher credits the series’ success due to its unique take on Marvel heroics and its dark wit and since its return last year, readers have flocked to the strange corner of the Marvel Universe that brings us U-Go Girl, Zeitgeist, Doop, and many more.
Marvel’s description of The X-Cellent reads:
“Your favorite celebrity super villains are back! Zeitgeist is still on a mission to achieve social media godhood, no matter who he has to kill! But the spotlight won’t be big enough when the next generation of the X-Statix drop in!”
“There are few finer feelings in comics than teaming up again with Mike Allred and creating THE X-CELLENT, the latest chapter of the strange mutant journey that began with X-STATIX!” Milligan said.
“Playing with Peter Milligan and our beloved Marvel Mutant creations is always pure comic book bliss!” Allred added. “And this next arc of THE X-CELLENT really kicks everything up to ELEVEN!”
The X-Cellent #1 will be available at your local comic shop and digitally on March 15, 2023.
