Marvel Honors Chris Claremont With Anniversary Special
by James Ferguson
To celebrate Chris Claremont’s fifty year career telling stories in the Marvel Universe, Marvel Comics is releasing the Chris Claremont Anniversary Special this December. The writer returns to the world of the X-Men for a brand-new story following Dani Moonstar as she’s drafted for a mission across time and space for a psychic showdown against the Shadow King. Claremont is joined by artists Brett Booth, Bill Sienkiewicz, and more.
Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski says:
Uncanny X-Men was where it all began for me as a young fan, and it’s an honor for everyone here at Marvel to celebrate Chris Claremont’s 50th Anniversary as a writer with us! In this special, Chris masterfully weaves an all-new story that takes us down memory lane and revisits many of the fan-favorite characters he’s helped create over the years, re-teaming him with some of the classic artists he’s collaborated with. With a few surprises along the way!
The Chris Claremont Anniversary Special features a cover by Salvador Larroca. It’s set for release in December 2020.
