Marvel To Publish The Marvel Universe By Chris Claremont – As Long As He Doesn't Write Any More Of It
Marvel has signed Chris Claremont to an exclusive contract to ensure he doesn't write for any competing comic book publishers. It's just that they don't seem to want him to write for any of their comics either.
However, they doesn't mean that they can't mine the back catalogue. Coming out in August next year is the Marvel Universe By Chris Claremont hardcover volume that looks rather Omnibusy for $125 for 1144 pages.
Though best-known for his epic world-building X-Men run, prolific writer Chris Claremont has more than made his mark across the entire Marvel Universe! Now, experience the length and breadth of his decades-long career! Beginning with his rarely-seen early work on the horrors of combat, Claremont will introduce Captain Britain, put Black Goliath and Doctor Strange through their paces, dig into the mythology of the Man-Thing, pit the X-Men against the Fantastic Four, put Kitty Pryde firmly in the spotlight, take on the Japanese heroes Big Hero 6, and pen the most cosmic contest of all!
