staff_picks rico_staff_picksFan-favorite character Fantomex is getting his own is getting his very own limited series featuring covers by fan-favorite artist Francesco Francavilla. I used up all the F’s!

This 4 issue series is written by newbie Andrew Hope and illustrated by longtime Deadpool artist Shawn Crystal. It’s a Max title so that means it’s rough and tough and all that stuff, not for kids!

By the way, check out Crystal’s interview podcast Inkpulp Audio. He takes a personal approach to the interviews and focuses less on craft and comic book characters. He’s had some great guests so far including Skottie Young, Rick Remender and today a new interview with Kelly Sue DeConnick just posted!

SETH’S PICK :: UNCANNY X-FORCE #1: I know there’s a substantial fanbase of Rick Remender’s Uncanny X-force among our blog readers, and I happily count myself among you.  We all know and respect the work Remender, Opena and Ribic did on the title, but it’s understandable to be a little skeptical about this new version.  Since I haven’t read much of his previous work, I can’t tell you much about new writer Sam Humphries, but the team he has assembled (including Spiral, Storm, Psylocke, Fantomex-ish Cluster and Puck) seems like an interesting way to start.  It’s also interesting to me that the always reliable Ron Garney will be working on this series, and that he’s moving away from his recent pencil-driven work on books like Wolverine: Weapon X to now work with an inker.  Most of the new Marvel Now books have been enjoyable, and this one has the potential for that as well.  I should also mention that Young Avengers #1 also hits shelves this week.  Kieron Gillen and Jamie McKelvie are a consistently entertaining collaborative team, and they should work wonders with these characters.
