The Savage Land TPB (1987) with cover art by John Buscema. This trade paperback reprints Marvel Fanfare nos. 1-4, which are still my favorite Savage Land stories of all time.  With Chris Claremont writing and a who’s who of fan-favorite X-Men artists, including Michael Golden, Dave Cockrum, Bob McLeod, Paul Smith and Terry Austin, the story is a wild and thoroughly enjoyable ride.

'Fault in Our Stars' Writers Tackling 'X-Men' Spinoff 'New Mutants'

Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, the writing team behind the hit YA adaptations The Fault in Our Stars and The Spectacular Now, are working on the script for New Mutants, Fox’s X-Men spinoff.

The move re-teams the duo with Josh Boone — the Fault in Our Stars filmmaker who is directing Fox’s take on the Marvel property that centers on a group of misfits trying to deal with their mutant powers — with whom they are working closely.

Simon Kinberg, the studio’s steward of the X-Men franchise, is producing.

Launched in the early 1980s, New Mutants, created by Chris Claremont and Bob McLeod, was the first X-Men comic spinoff.

The movie will focus on the angst-driven adventures of a diverse group of teens that include Native American Danielle Moonstar, Scots girl Wolfsbane, Brazilian ladies man Sunspot, a Kentuckian code-named Cannonball, and Russian teen Magik. Also in the mix will be an alien named Warlock.
