Blink Returns! Your First Look at EXILES #1 from Saladin Ahmed and Javier Rodriguez!
A new creative team brings together a misfit team in this all-new story!
New York, NY—March 15, 2018—This April, join Blink, Khan, Iron Lad, Wolvie, and Valkyrie in a tale of misfit fun and adventure from acclaimed Black Bolt writer Saladin Ahmed, artist Javier Rodriguez (Spider-Woman), Alvaro Lopez, and Jordie Bellaire.
“EXILES is my take on a classic Marvel 'misfit' team book, powered by the endless possibilities of alternate timeline craziness. Sort of WHAT IF? meets classic X-MEN, with a bit of QUANTUM LEAP tossed in for good measure,” said Ahmed. “It’s a dream of a book to be working on for a Marvel fanboy such as myself, full of deep-cut guest stars and mind-blowing easter eggs. But it’s also the human story of a group of misfits coming together, learning to trust each other, and, if they’re lucky, saving the world(s).”
Get ready for a wild ride full of twists and new adventures when EXILES returns to comic shops with a brand-new story this April!
"X-Men meets Quantum Leap" sounds like a winning formula no matter who you are, and that's some top-notch talent behind it.
Exiles #1 will hit comic shops and digital retailers on April 11. Check out a first look at Rodriguez's interiors below.
