Chris Claremont Pulls Off a Cross-Time Caper in May’s Marvel Comics Presents

Posted by February 20, 2019 Comment

In celebration of Marvel Comics’ 80th-anniversary this year, the publisher brought back the classic anthology series Marvel Comics Presents. But the new Marvel Comics Presents comes with a twist: each issue focuses on a specific decade in Marvel’s history. And in May, the decade in question is one of the most memorable times for Marvel Comics: the 1980s!

In addition to another chapter of Wolverine’s Vigil storyline, Marvel Comics Presents #5 will feature a Nightcrawler story set during the Cross-Time Caper storyline from Chris Claremont and Alan Davis’s legendary Excalibur run, written by Claremont himself!

More Claremont is always more better, so May can’t come fast enough!

Oh, and there’s some Venom Lethal Protector love going on here too.

Check out the solicit below, and the full Marvel May solicits here.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
