Exploding onto the comics scene in 1994, Joe Madureira quickly became one of the top talents in the field. With a look heavily influenced by the Japanese manga style, Madureira's clean and powerful images fueled the success of Marvel's mutant super hero team the X-Men throughout the 1990s. Collected here are some of the finest examples of Madureira's artistic mastery, as he takes the mutant super hero team through every locale imaginable.In the Morlock tunnels beneath New York City, the X-Men face a new generation of outcast mutants, the vengeful Gene Nation. Then it's off to Hong Kong, where the merry mutants are immersed in eastern mysticism in the "Quest for the Crimson Dawn". In the farthest reaches of outer space, the X-Men must protect themselves from both the Imperialistic Shi'Ar and the mechanical parasites the Phalanx.Finally the children of the Atom find themselves in an Antarctic stronghold where one of their own is forced to stand trials for his sins against all mutantkind.

About the author (2000)

Two time WIZARD-award winning writer Scott Lobdell is most closely associated with his seven year run on Marvel's UNCANNY X-MEN, as well as his co-creation with artist Chris Bachalo on the same company's GENERATION X. He has also worked on series such as WILDCATS, THE DARKNESS, BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER and KISS! While keeping one foot firmly planted in the comc book industry with such creator owned properties as BALL AND CHAIN and THE STRAY, Scott is currently writing television pilots, direct to DVD movies (for comic book legend Stan Lee) and feature films in Hollywood: his first produced film hits theatres in February, Revolution Studios' MAN OF THE HOUSE starring Tommy Lee Jones. Daniel Rendon Yes I am a Cat! Just don' tell it to my dog! I was born on February 6. I have always been an avid reader, so I think it's only natural that I found comics fascinating. I just love how comics merge both writing and drawing, how they let you experiment new paths, but most important they give you the opportunity to create your own worlds and share them with others!
