This week sees the launch of Peach Momoko's Demon Days: X-Men, her first superheroic comic book, and first comic book published by the Big Two. It will not be the last.
Momoko is a Japanese illustrator who began exhibiting at US comic conventions back in 2014 and saw American publication with a couple of stories picked up by Grant Morrison when he was EIC of Heavy Metal Magazine. Since then she has become the hottest cover art variant creator in the business, increasingly in demand, drawing over a dozen covers for American publishers every month of late. She still has a few left to come out from other comic book publishers, but they are far and few now. And she has comic books to write and draw. Here's a prelude to the first issue, followed by a preview of that first issue.
