Official Press Release

UNCANNY X-MEN are a bunch of babies…

Everbody's favorite inter-dimensional tub of mayhem has returned to the pages of UNCANNY X-MEN -- that's right, heeeeeere's Mojo –- and he wastes no time doing what he does best: turning the X-Men into screaming brats!

To celebrate the UNCANNY troop's return to the infantile in UNCANNY X-MEN #461, Marvel Comics is producing a special 1-for-15 "X-Babies" Variant Cover -- as illustrated by superstar penciler Adam Kubert…

…and hey, the regular edition cover is ridiculously good as well, as rendered by SHANNA artist Frank Cho; his gift for drawing, er, curves, is greatly utilized…in his take on Mr. Mojo's portly pot belly!

Retailers may order one copy of the Kubert Variant Cover for every 15 copies ordered of the regular Cho edition. Both covers are scheduled to arrive in stores on June 15, and carry a Final Order Cut-Off (FOC) date of Thursday, May 26. The issue is written by Chris Claremont with interior pencils by Tom Raney.

MARVEL ADVENTURES FF…

All adventure, all action, for all ages! With the highly anticipated FF movie approaching fast, MARVEL ADVENTURES FANTASTIC FOUR is the perfect book to introduce new Marvel fans to the FF.

Join Marvel's first family for a wild ride of all-new, unforgettable exploits. When the world-renowned heroes happen upon some children in distress, they naturally rush to the rescue! But not everything is as it seems, and the Fantastic Four are in for much more than they bargained for.

Says MA FANTASTIC FOUR penciler Carlo Pagulayan, "All I feel is that I never really expected to land this title, let alone an actual team book -- starting with number 1 -- and the FF at that! It's definitely a dream I had thought would remain a dream. I'm just too happy!"

SPIDER-MAN: HOUSE OF M #1…

A HOUSE OF M SPECIAL EVENT! Meet Spider-Man -- hero to the people, champion of the weak and oppressed... and World Wrestling Alliance Championship Titleholder?!

Says series co-writer Mark Waid, "I can't believe how much fun it was to work on this book, and co-writer Tom Peyer came up with a simple bit of business that is, to the best of my knowledge, a first for a Spidey book and still makes me smile with glee..and Larocca's doing INCREDIBLE work!

"Spider-Man: HoM has been a pleasure because everyone working on it -- every name in the credit box -- is rowing in the same direction.," adds co-writer Tom Peyer. "We all agree on what we want it to be, and how to get it there. That doesn't happen often enough; when it does, it usually makes for a great read."

Peter Parker has it all -- respect, fame, and the adoration of all. But he also has a deep, destructive secret that he keeps from the world and from his family -- one that could well unravel the reality he knows!
