X-Men Go Back to School in Giant-Size X-Men: Nightcrawler #1 [Preview]

Nightcrawler is the latest X-Man to be featured in his own Giant-Size X-Men issue, part of a series of one-shots that would be a mini-series if mini-series didn't have the severe disadvantage of sequential numbering, rather than the lucrative all-number-one issues of the one-shot setup. And with the economy tanking thanks to the coronavirus pandemic, the comics industry needs all the sales boosts it can get. Think of it like a self-stimulus.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
