Earlier this week Marvel released what might have been their easiest one-word teaser titled BAMF! I think we all knew it was going to be everyone’s favorite furry elf, Nightcrawler! Today Marvel officially announces that legendary X-Men writer Chris Claremont and fan favorite artist Todd Nauck will be BAMFING Kurt Wagner back to comic book shelves this April.
This April, an X-Men legend returns. Prolific and iconic X-Men writer Chris Claremont teams with fan favorite artist Todd Nauck for NIGHTCRAWLER #1 – an all-new ongoing series starring the one and only fuzzy blue elf!
“He’s smart, tough, creative and daring, with an instinctive understanding of people and situations. He has a wicked sense of humor and a devastating charm. His ‘normal’ is revolutionary to most people; throw him a problem, he’ll find a way to solve it that’s unique to him. He quite simply is the kind of man others trust; to know him is to have faith in him.”
“Nightcrawler has been one of my all-time favorite X-Men. He’s a fun, cool character and he’s easy to care about. He’s a guy you root for.”
When Nightcrawler sacrificed his life to protect mutantkind, a hole was left in the X-Men’s ranks that has never been filled. Now, with his recent resurrection in the pages of Amazing X-Men, the world Kurt Wagner left behind has changed. Charles Xavier is dead. Scott Summers leads the mutant revolution as a fugitive. Wolverine guides the mutants of tomorrow at the Jean Grey School For Higher Learning. Deep schisms divide the X-Men, and his closest friends now find themselves bitter enemies.
Where will he go? What will he do? Don’t miss the start of a brand new adventure as Nightcrawler and Chris Claremont make their triumphant return to the X-Men fold for NIGHTCRAWLER #1 – bamfing its way into comic shops this April!
