Official Press Release

In last month's Exiles #22, loyal readers of the fan-favorite title got a

sneak peek of art from the series' new, then-unnamed, regular penciler.

Since then Previews for titles on-sale in May 2003 have revealed that the

artist is one Clayton Henry, who begins his run in May with EXILES #26, the

beginning of the 2-part story arc "HARD CHOICES"!

As it's written by Uncanny X-Men's Chuck Austen and features the return of

Magik into the pages of an ongoing series, readers already have two good

reasons to check out EXILES #26. But what the issue will ultimately be

remembered for is the debut of Marvel's latest creative find. Henry joins a

growing list of new artistic talent - like Olivier Coipel, Adrian Alphona,

Skottie Young, the Lai Brothers, Phillip Tan, Francisco Ruiz Velasco and

others - who are infusing Marvel with a new youthful energy.

"The name Clayton Henry may not ring a bell with readers right now, but in

just a few months that's all going to change, and fans in the know can check

out his first work in EXILES," said series editor Mike Raicht. "We already

have Clayton's first two issues in hand and it just gets better and better

page by page. He's bringing a great animation flavor to the book and EXILES

couldn't be in better hands. Fans are in for a real nice surprise."

EXILES #22 goes on sale May 7th and retailers are reminded its Final Order

Cut-off date is April 17th.
