"NYX" #1
Monday afternoon Marvel Comics sent out the following preview of "NYX" #1, coming this October.

Professor Charles Xavier can't educate and provide a welcome home for every

young mutant in the world. His gift of creating hope from despair doesn't

reach everyone who needs it, and that simple premise serves as the basis of

NYX, the long awaited and controversial new MARVEL PSR+ ongoing series

debuting October 10th, 2003.

Written by the Marvel Editor-in-Chief himself - Joe Quesada, and illustrated

by exclusive Marvel creator and rising superstar Joshua Middleton, this new

street-level X-Men series introduces a pack of New York City gutterpunks, a

"NYX" #3
group of young mutants that have to rely on themselves for everything from

food to shelter to love. Kids who instead of preparing for Magneto's next

big assault in the Danger Room, must learn to survive in the cold, harsh,

and dangerous world of the city that never sleeps - begging for change in

Washington Square Park and finding a warm place to sleep in the Port

Authority bus station.

But while the cast of NYX will be the mutants who fall through the cracks of

Xavier's dream, it won't be without its ties to the core X-MEN universe. By

December's NYX #3, readers will be introduced to a new character that is

related to one of the most prominent mutants characters of all time. A very

close blood relative to a current X-Man, and the Marvel Universe will never

be the same...

NYX #1 (AUG031497), the 32-page debut issue of a new ongoing series, goes on sale October 10th with a cover price of $2.99 and a MARVEL PSR+ rating. Retailers are reminded its Final Order Cut-off (FOC) date is Thursday, September 18th. Readers, ask your retailer to reserve you a copy before the order cut-off date.

[note: As befitting a "Marvel PSR+" title, this preview contains mature themes and imagery.]
