New creators and a new crew will still pursue the same mission in Marauders Annual #1, a new comic book series from Marvel, coming January 2022.
- Following on from the limited comic series Inferno from Jonathan Hickman, the X-Men will undergo a makeover, including the hit mutant seafaring series Marauders.
- Steve Orlando will be taking over writing duties from Gerry Duggan. Orlando is known for his work on books such as Wonder Woman and Curse of the Man-Thing.
About The Marauders:
- “The Marauders are ready to renew their mission of mutant rescue! Kate Pryde’s got the mission — all she needs now is a new boat and a fresh crew to match. Alongside Bishop, Pryde will recruit a team of mutants, new and old, including Psylocke, Daken, Aurora, Tempo, and Somnus, the new mutant hero who debuted earlier this year in Marvel’s Voices: Pride #1! They’ll unite to spring Daken from imprisonment at the hands of a leader who’s as cruel as he is charismatic: the primal provocateur known as Brimstone Love, a fan-favorite villain from the 2099 timeline making his present day debut! It’s the Marauders versus the Theater of Pain, a torture troupe that’s set up shop in Xavier’s School’s old backyard!”
What They’re Saying:
- New writer Steve Orlando said: “Taking the helm of Marauders is easily the most exciting moment of my career, especially when it's my first-ever ongoing not just on Krakoa, but at Marvel in general. Exploding out of the team's already-amazing adventures as part of Hellfire Trading, Captain Pryde's new crew of Marauders will stop at nothing to bring endangered mutants to safety — to always go where they're needed, not where they're wanted. To mutant rescue, wherever it calls them!”
Marauders Annual #1 will hit book stands on January 12, 2022.
