Marvel has released some new preview images for the much-anticipated new series starring a young Scott Summers and his famous father, Corsair. The main draw is obviously Greg Rucka, but Russel Dauterman is also being touted as the next big thing. Deep space adventures throughout an intergalactic road trip? It certainly sounds interesting. Since the first issue comes hot on the heels of a big X-men crossover event, hopefully it’s still approachable to newcomers.
“Cyclops #1” releases May 7, 2014. There are two variant covers.
[FROM THE OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE]
This May, experience the ongoing adventures of young Scott Summers in “Cyclops #1” – the all-new series from Eisner Award winning writer Greg Rucka and artist Russel Dauterman spinning directly out of the blockbuster All-New X-Men crossover “The Trial of Jean Grey”!
After clashing with the Shi’ar on the edge of deep space, Scott Summers is about to encounter the last person he’d ever expect to meet – his space pirate father!
Long thought dead, Corsair, leader of that intergalactic band of misfits the Starjammers, has returned! And he’s got a new recruit in the form of his son, young Cyclops himself! Scott Summers is leaving the X-Men behind to stay in space and learn a few valuable lessons from dad: 1) How to shave, 2) How to talk to women, 3) How to steal a Badoon spaceship.
“I’m beyond excited for readers to see how Greg and Russell are collaborating with this book,” says Editor Jeanine Schaefer. “Greg is absolutely on fire, hitting every beat you would ever want from a space opera meets intergalactic road trip; and a star is born with Russell’s work here – when he’s huge people are going to be coming back to this series again and again.”
Don’t miss one moment of the high adventure in deep space as Rucka & Dauterman kick off the newest cosmic adventure this May in the action packed “Cyclops #1”!
