Here's hoping things work out for Illyana. I'm all for Magik being back. I'm also diggin' Yost and Kyle's writing.
After years of suffering at the dark hands of the demon Belasco, will Illyana Rasputin finally have her revenge on the devil who stole her innocent soul? In New X-Men #41, three brave squads of Xavier’s mutants prepare for the final battle against the devil himself, but the stakes are high – if these Children of the Atom lose the fight then Belasco will pull the entire world into Limbo to find Illyana! The stunning conclusion of the “Quest for Magik” is written by the acclaimed duo of Christopher Yost and Craig Kyle, with pencils and cover by the red-hot Skottie Young.
The pace was fast and furious in the sold-out New X-Men #40 (though copies may be available at the retail level); Rockslide evolved into a hulking, lava infused creature, Pixie now wields the power of black magic, X-23 was brought back to life and summarily killed again, and the cavalry finally arrived in Limbo only to be met by a hungry horde of devilish familiars! Now, the stage is set for the final act, but Belasco might lose the upper hand when the Astonishing X-Men show up with the Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange!
Also, New X-Men #41 includes the eighth chapter of Endangered Species written by Christos Gage and penciled by Scot Eaton. Beast crosses a line when he digs up remains on Genosha in the name of science – will this X-Man go to any lengths to save mutantkind? And just who will join him in this quest? Prepare to be shocked!
True Believers, if the gripping New X-Men #41 doesn’t leave you saying, “By the Hoary Hosts of Hoggoth,” then we haven’t done our job!
