Are Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz Reuniting for New Mutants?

A listing for a new collection called Legends Of Marvel has popped up on Amazon.

A collection of upcoming on one-shots celebrating Marvel’s 80th anniversary

It includes June’s already announced Incredible Hulk: Last Call by Peter David and Dale Keown.

We know there’s an upcoming Wolverine one-shot with a Chris Claremont and Salvador Larroca story, that might fit.

And of course the announced for July X-Statix one-shot from Peter Milligan and Michael Allred may make it in.

But the big news has to be a Chris Claremont and Bill Sienkiewicz reunion for a New Mutants one-shot.

Unless of course, this is an opportunity for Marvel to include the story they did years ago for X-Men Unlimited #43. Let’s see.

I wonder who Roy Thomas will be reuniting with. Neal Adams is always possible but, I guess, unlikely…

But who could Jerry Ordway, who has done very little work for Marvel be reuniting with? I mean, he did ink John Byrne on Fantastic Four… and he mostly worked with Louise Simonson over at DC on Superman and recently reunited for Action Comics #1000. Would that still count as a legendary team for Marvel?

Here’s the listing.
