Fans already mourning the coming end of Sina Grace and Nathan Stockman’s excellent Iceman mini-series will get a reprieve with one extra Iceman comic coming in February. Revealed EX-X-XCLUSIVELY on Adventures in Poor Taste, Grace and Stockman will bring their chilly hero to a one-shot called Uncanny X-Men: Winter’s End. The website also has an EX-X-XCLUSIVE interview with Grace, revealing more details about the series:
In Winter’s End, readers get to see more of the future that the Ice Master from “Battle of the Atom” is from. I also had a lot of fun playing around with character interactions outside of Bobby. We get to see some clutch moments with Kitty Pryde, Archangel, Jean Grey, and a few other surprise guests. There are so many fun character pairings that occur amidst some truly necessary dramatic convos.
The messed up thing about this story is that the Ice Master who returns from the future seemingly lacks every trait that we know about Bobby’s core. There’s no humor, there’s no levity, there’s no hope in this man. What happened to make him practically Old Man Bobby?! Only one way to find out, true believers!
Look for Uncanny X-Men: Winter’s End #1 in stores in February, alongside six other new X-Men comics.
