Marvel.com posted a 2-part column titled “Open the High Evolutionary Journals” last week. They address the high concept of the series as well as what appears will be the main villain for this New Warriors team. The column breaks down each type of super-human, be it mutant, clone, Inhuman or what-have-you, and highlights one of the members of the new team as the “target specimen”. The Journals are written by New Warriors writer Christopher Yost, and include a preview of New Warriors #1 by artist Marcus To and cover artist Ramon Pérez. Here’s Part 1, and here’s Part 2.
To add to the growing buzz, the same preview pages are making the rounds on news sites, like Comic Book Resources and Comics Alliance, and also include a look at the three variant covers by To, Skottie Young and Chris Samnee.
New Warriors #1 will be on-sale in print and digitally on February 19th.
