Magneto #1

-How does Magneto, formerly the world’s most feared mutant, go about gaining some of that prestige back?  Well, the simple answer is:  by doing bad things.

-Cullen Bunn, local boy made good, has been delivering some wildly fun Marvel comics over the last couple years (Fearless Defenders, Deadpool Kills…, Night of the Living Deadpool) and now it’s time for him to blend that pure joy for the medium with the darkness of his creator-owned series, Sixth Gun.

-Bunn promises a blend of horror and noir in this solo revenge tale for the X-Men‘s most popular villain.

-Basically Marvel‘s version of Batman, but three times the crazy because Moon Knight‘s sporting three separate personalities!

-One of Marvel‘s many unsung characters, any Moon Knight series promises to be a twisty, violent ride. . .

-. . .especially when it’s written by comic legend, Warren Ellis.  Ellis has created some of the most ingenious characters and premises in comic history, including The Authority, Planetary, Transmetropolitan, as well as runs on Astonishing X-Men and Hellblazer!

-Little is known about the plot of this series, but, in my experience, that indicates a story so wild and unexpected that they don’t want to spoil it.  Trust us, it’s the must buy Marvel book for the week!
