First Unlettered Preview Of Claremont And Nauck’s NIGHTCRAWLER #1


It’s been a good couple of months for fans of Nightcrawler. Readers were thrilled to see Nightcrawler brought back to the land of the living in the pages of Amazing X-Men, ecstatic to hear that the heart and soul of the X-Men would be getting his own monthly series, and then another adjective for super excited when it was revealed that the new comic would be written by Chris Claremont with art by Todd Nauck. The series, simply titled Nightcrawler, will hit comic book stores April 9th. Marvel has begun teasing the new book by releasing an unlettered preview of the debut issue. You can check out the interior art and some covers from artists Chris Samnee and Humberto Ramos below. What do you think about our first look at Nightcrawler #1?

When Nightcrawler sacrificed his life to protect mutantkind, a hole was left in the X-Men’s ranks that has never been filled. With his recent resurrection in the pages of Amazing X-Men, Kurt Wagner has returned to a world far different from the one he left behind. Charles Xavier is dead. Scott Summers is on the run. Even Wolverine, his closest friend, has changed, becoming the headmaster of the Jean Grey School for Higher Learning. And though a deep schism divides the X-Men, Kurt Wagner isn’t going to waste one minute of his new lease on life.
Now, Nightcrawler is hitting the road, eager to right some wrongs and help safeguard the future of mutantkind. And he’s going to do it the only way he knows how: swashbuckling, lady-charming, and of course BAMFing!
