Don't miss this momentous event as legendary creators CHRIS CLAREMONT and BILL SIENKIEWICZ reunite with Magik, Wolfsbane, Cannonball, Cypher, Mirage, Karma, and Sunspot to share this never before told story of the New Mutants' past! When Warlock experiences a nightmare, he begins going haywire, and it's up to his friends to save him! But as Warlock grows more frenzied, they should be worrying about being able to save themselves...and doubly so when Magik's inner demon, Darkchylde, threatens to break free! Also, a special guest appearance by none other than Kitty Pryde!

    Bill Sienkiewicz drew this comic book. That's all you should need to know, but if you're still wondering then, yes, he still knows how to do that job better than almost anyone else who has ever tried. Read Full Review

    For those rejoining X-Men during Hickmans relaunch, this tale gives X-enthusiasts a taste of the New Mutants while allowing them to take a test drive on the characters in the process. New readers will depart with plenty of questions and hopefully will have their curiosity in these new characters sparked. Older fans of Chris Claremonts NEW MUTANTS run will fall head over heels for this one-shot that probably felt like old times. Either way, this reviewer recommends picking this issue up, especially if you've had a recent resurgence in the mutant landscape of the Marvel Universe. Read Full Review
