The celebrated artists returns to...

Written by: Marc Strom

Whilce Portacio made his triumphant return to UNCANNY X-MEN last month, helping series writer Matt Fraction bring Kitty Pryde back to Earth in issue #522; now he will usher the X-Men into a new, post-Second Coming era when he illustrates an arc on the series beginning with July's issue #526.

The artist, who first co-wrote and drew Marvel's mutants in a brief but definitive run on UNCANNY X-MEN in the early 90's that introduced the character of Bishop, attributes his journey back to the fans.

"Every time I go to a convention fans are constantly asking when I'm coming back to the book that sent my career into warp drive," relates Portacio. "I am constantly bombarded by stories of how one of those issues [I drew] was the first comic book they ever read and got them hooked into comics. So, for the last few years, it has always been in the back of my mind floating there: what would I do if I ever got the call to come back to my favorite book?

Who's joining the team?


X-Men editor Nick Lowe: "Pslocke is a psychic ninja who can cut your mind in half with her psi-sword seconds before she cuts your body in half with a katana. You do not want to mess with her.

"The friendly neighborhood Spider-Man is picking up a new neighborhood: San Francisco. Will the hero who gets no respect joins the species that gets no respect?"
