Earlier this month it was announced that the 2nd issue of MAJOR X from
writer Rob Liefeld and artist Brent Peeples sold out before hitting shelves, and a new print with an exclusive cover would be released.
So it comes as no surprise that the upcoming 3rd issue of the title has followed in the footsteps of the first 2 issues by selling out ahead of it’s official release.
To go along with the news of the issue selling out, an announcement of a 2nd printing of the issue was made, along with the new that the debut issue of Major X will go back to print for a 3rd time. There will also be a new 1:25 variant cover that will feature Liefeld’s artwork.
The 3rd issue of Liefeld’s return to the X-Universe will feature one of his long time collaborators, Whilce Portacio, handling the art work for the title will be released on May 1st.
Check out the interview that our own Sam did with Liefeld at WonderCon 2019, where they discuss the title as well as Liefeld’s work with Portacio.
Full press release is below.
