Brett Booth and Bill Sienkiewicz are both working on the Chris Claremont X-Men Anniversary Special for Christmas week from Marvel Comics. And Bill Sienkiewicz on social media has shared "a few teaser snippets from an upcoming New Mutants story w Chris Claremont and a slew of other artists. I completed the 8 page intro/outro/ bracketing sequences. Can't wait to see it all come together."
He also mentioned that "The script is terrific; really excited for the finalized issue… the plot was presented to me as an anniversary issue of sorts; a culmination of some plot points throughout the NM run. So I'm viewing it as both a revisit and canonical.. It deals with Dani's relationship w Hela and Brightwind."
And to Walter Simonson adding "These images look great, Bill!! Nice work", Bill replied "Thank you Walt. I might not be able to match your wonderful linework, but I'll bet we're neck and neck over who has more fun doing what we're lucky enough to do. Hope you and Weezie had a great Thanksgiving, pal and Thanks again."
Here's the solicitation for the upcoming oneshot Christmas present from Marvel Comics to Bleeding Cool's own Jude Terror.
