'Psych War' Pits Jean Against Emma Frost As Marvel Legacy Comes To Jean Grey #8 From Hopeless And Ibanez
Dennis Hopeless and Victor Ibanez continue as the creative team of Jean Grey as Marvel Legacy pits Jean against an old romantic rival this Fall. But who's drawing the covers?!
Continuing the slow rollout of Legacy creative team and detail announcements to their media partners, Marvel has given CBR the solicit for Jean Grey #8, revealing that the creative team on interiors will stay the same while Mike Mayhew takes over covers.
Or WILL HE?! Though CBR and the solicit list Mayhew as the artist, it seems that David Yardin at least drew the cover for Jean Grey #8 pictured above, or else Mayhew has taken to signing Yardin's signature on his work.
Additionally, we now know that the plot of the upcoming Psych War arc will pit the titular teen hero against Emma Frost, with Hopeless saying:
I'm really excited about what we came up with. It's a sort of heist story with Emma Frost's intimidating mind as the vault. Jean has to get in and get out without one of the scariest psychics in Marvel history catching her.
Check out the solicit below, and look for this series to continue basically as it was before but with a fancy new industry-changing banner reading Marvel Legacy at the bottom of the cover.
