The popular artist comes back for a 4-Part storyline set within the current Krakoan community of the X-Men
The fan-favorite Marvel Unlimited X-Men anthology is back with a new arc drawn by acclaimed artist Declan Shalvey! Debuting this past February 14th, X-Men Unlimited #22 has returned with a brand new 4-part story that is set within the current Krakoan continuity. The comic follows the initial “Latitude” story done by Shalvey and Jonathan Hickman. Marvel Unlimited subscribers can catch #22 in the app now and continue the adventure with new chapters each Monday!
When asked about details regarding the new X-Men Unlimited arc, Shalvey had this to say in Marvel’s press release:
“This new story follows directly from the initial ‘Latitude’ story I did with Jonathan Hickman a few months back where Wolverine hunted down an A.I.M. cell responsible for kidnapping mutants from The Peak station. In ‘Longitude,’ we catch up with Logan as he searches for the last missing mutant and he has recruited some fellow Krakoans to get to the bottom of this. Getting to take all the reins on an X-Men story like this is a rare opportunity that I really relished.”
He was then asked about his opinion on working in the vertical Infinity Comics space:
“From a writer/artist perspective, there’s a lot to play with in taking advantage of the format, and getting to just pick and choose characters from the wide X-Men cast was like being a kid all over again.”
Shalvey is well-known for working on Moon Knight, Thunderbolts, and Deadpool for Marvel. He is also known for drawing the comic book adaptation to 28 Days Later and has collaborated with writer Warren Ellis on several occasions, most recently, for Image’s Injection.
Now, if you haven’t signed up for it yet, Marvel Unlimited spans over 29,000 comics throughout the entire Marvel Universe. The app is available for all apple and android products and the web. I highly suggest getting it, as you can get a lot of the popular Marvel comics out right now, their podcasts, and several issues related to major Marvel events that are often relevant to the MCU Disney+ series that are releasing right now.
